Here’s another one sent by Colin, a reader from back east – thank you! He went to Mexico recently and sent me a ton of varieties that he found there. You’d think with Mexico being next door I’d be able to find more varieties, but actually it’s been really hard. This one’s made in South Korea for the Mexican market. Instant noodle are hugely popular in Mexico, and with spicy flavors coming out of South Korea, it’s a pretty good fit. Let’s have a look!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add package contents to 550ml boiling water and cook for 4-6 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
The enormous noodle block!
The soup base sachet.
Has a beef and spicy scent.
The vegetables sachet.
A standard assortment for ramyun.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, sweet onion, processed cheese, ito togarashi and beef. The noodles are Ottogi’s standard thick and chewy ramyun – came out just right. The broth was about as baseline and standard ramyun as you can get – spicy, beef and the vegetable bits hydrated well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 645175150022.
A recipe which sounds fascinating…
