#369: Bon Go Jang Tofu Udon Dosirak

So this one took a little work – all I knew was it was from Korea. Wasn’t sure of anything much other than that and the brand name. Luckily, those two things brought it all together. I found that this stuff is called Tofu Udon Dosirak and comes from Hanil Food Co. Ltd. in Seoul, Korea under its Bon Go Jang line of products. ‘Dosirak’ translates like ‘Bento’ or ‘Take Out Lunch.’ On their website it describes this as “fresh katsuo bushi soup with tofu udon that you can eat simply by adding hot water.”

Two packets – Soup base and veggies.

There’s the veggies and soup base on the udon.

I liked it. The veggies were insanely plentiful, and the noodles were hearty and good. I liked it quite a bit. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars!

Ah Francis – you are a truly amazing dog.

#206: Bon Go Jang Deuchi Udon Fresh Japanese Style Udon

Some more fresh noodles! Kit picked this one for me to try today. Really excited to see how this is!

So the noodles, veggies and liquid soup base.

Before water is added. Adding water and six minutes in the microwave later…

Apparently, wasn’t supposed to put the veggies in so kinda screwed up there… But let’s see… The noodles are pretty standard as far as these fresh udon bowls are concerned. The veggies are plentiful and the broth is quite good – a little sweet. I’m going to give this one a 3.0 out of 5.0 stars – it’s pretty good but not uber wow.
