#2062: Ottogi Ramyon Sabor Mariscos

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). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add package contents to 550ml boiling water and cook for 4-6 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

A spicy scented powder.

The vegetables sachet.

Looks like spring onion and some peppers amongst the mixture.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, ito togarashi, carved squid and shrimp. The noodles are nice and thick ramyun noodles – good chew and mouthfeel. The broth is a spicy seafood affair, augmented very nicely with the included vegetables. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 645175155140.

#1892: Ottogi Cheese Ramen

I’ve been wondering when I would find this one for a long time and finally, I have. It was at the local HMart in Lynnwood, Washington on 184th street – if you live in this area, you should definitely check this place out! Anyways, cheese powder and spicy South Korean ramyun – I mean how can you go wrong here? Not only that, you’ve got the added bonus of a little character with a block of cheese on it’s head vomiting cheesy goodness into the bowl with a smile on his/her face. Sounds tasty! Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, Add soup base, vegetable sachet and noodle block to 550ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Add in contents of cheese powder sachet. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a spicy scent.

The cheese powder sachet.

A superfine powder.

The vegetable sachet.

A colorful selection.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added a little wheel of Babybel Gouda cheese. The noodles were very good – nice thick ramyun with a great chew and it really sucked up the flavor of the broth as well. The broth had the standard spicy element of ramyun with a cheese element to it. Unfortunately, I felt the cheese wasn’t enough – it kind of ended up with a more cheese and mushroom taste than just cheese. The vegetables hydrated well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8801045524672.

Re-Review: Ottogi Yeul Ramen Asian Style Instant Noodle

This is one I’ve seen on spicy lists before but it’s been a long time since I sampled it. Those two big peppers on the front look foreboding! I’m sure it was spicy, but how spicy? I guess we’ll have to see! Let’s have a look at Ottogi Yeul Ramen!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add noodles and sachet contents to 500ml of boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The enormous noodle block.

The soup base powder sachet.

Has a very spicy scent.

The vegetables sachet.

Looks like maybe green onion and mushrooms.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprout, egg and white onion. The noodles are very nice – your garden variety thick South Korean ramyun. There’s a ton of them as well! The broth had a spicy and beefy kind of thing going on, typical profile of a South Korean ramyun. The broth was quite spicy, but definitely haven’t been neglecting this one for the Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time list – however, it’s really spicy. The vegetables were a nice touch and of good quality and quantity. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 645175521013.

#1650: Ottogi Sesame Ramen Korean Style Instant Noodle

I’ve gotten a good amount of comments about this one. Ottogi Sesame Ramen seems to have filled an interesting niche in the noodle market! It’s pretty neat stuff – it has something called an ‘egg block.’ It is basically dehydrated egg that when introduced to the boiling water springs to life! I’ve had the bowl version (also known as a king cup) before, but never reviewed the pack. Let’s check out Ottogi Sesame Ramen!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains egg and beef. To prepare, add every thing but the oil to 500ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Add in oil, stir, and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The powder soup base sachet.

Has a kind of spicy beef scent.

The egg block!

A condensed block that should make for a lot of extra oomph!

The sesame oil sachet.

Definitely sesame oil – smells good!

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles have a classic ramyun gauge – thicker than you standard instant and with a very nice chew to them. The broth has a nice spiciness to it which builds and then levels off. The sesame, spiciness and beef tones are managed well and nicely balanced. The ebb block added a lot of little bits of scrambled egg throughout – very small, but made it a little nicer. Also in the egg block was spring onion which was very nice. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 645175525233.
