Crabby crab from South Korea! This one was sent to me by colin from the east coast – thanks! Not a lot of ramyun I’ve seen out there with crab as a main flavor. In fact, I think this might be the first ramyun I’ve seen in this vein. You might say ‘hey – you’ve reviewed noodle that have crab flavor before’ but this is ramyun. ramyun is strictly a South Korean thing – it’s really has to do with the noodle gauge and the chewiness. Originally it was beef broth and spicy, but different things have come into the mix during the years – like crab! Let’s give it a try!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains fish, crustacean and shellfish. To prepare, add everything to 3 cups of boiling water and cook for 4 1/2 minutes. stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Looks like spicy ramyun seasoning to me!
The dry garnish sachet.
Quite a diverse mixture.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and spring onion. The noodles are great – very good ramyun. They have this kind of two-tier texture to them like a lot of the non-fried noodles do. There’s a kind of gelatinous layer on the outside of the noodle and then more thick inwards with a sturdy chew. The broth had a nice spiciness to it indicative of South Korean variants as well as a nice flavor that teetered on the edge of crab and beef, free of the slight bitterness I have always found in many of the ramyun variants out there. The supplied garnish was good – nice sized pieces of vegetables and all garnish hydrated very nicely and was of good quality. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801114124260.
