After perusing Nongshim America’s website, I saw these noodles I hadn’t heard of before. A quick message to my contact at Nongshim and these magically arrived in a couple days! This is what you would call a Summer variety – the noodles are served cold with a spicy sauce. It’s made in South Korea, but definitely in packaging for the United States. Let’s give it a try!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 2.5 cups of water and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and run under cold water. Add in contents of liquid sachet. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The liquid sauce sachet.
Has a spicy and sweet scent to it.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and hard boiled egg. The noodles are nice and thick with a great chew – ramyun through and through. The sauce works extremely well; it’s sweet and spicy and works perfectly with a cold noodle. Best bibim myun I’ve ever had! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146034802.
Looks like this product has been around for a while in South Korean.
