#1491: Ottogi Potato Ramen

Woot woot – potatoes! These sounded good today – potato ramen… I really like the little Ms. Potato Head on the packaging. Ottogi makes some interesting varieties – I reviewd many of them waaaay back when I moved to Edmonds, WA. I would walk every day and pick up a single pack and bring it home, cook and review. Those were in the #100-#300’s. Seems like forever ago! These noodles are made primarily with potatoes, which give them an extra chewiness. Let’s check out Ottogi Potato Ramen!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains beef. To Prepare, add noodle block and sachet contents to 500ml boiling water. Cook for 2 minutes, 30 seconds. Enjoy!

A very large noodle block.

Powdered soup base sachet.

Has a nice garlicky scent.

The vegetable ingredients sachet.

Mushroom, potato, green onion, cabbage, red pepper.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, thin sliced beef and Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Pepper. The noodles are thick and indeed chewier than most ramyun noodles I’ve had. The broth has a nice garlicky and beefy kind of thing going on – pretty good. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801045522388.


Alternately, if you like cheese more than potatoes as well as a character that has a block of cheese on her head, you might like this cheese ramyun!

Here’s an ad for Ottogi Jin Ramen. Okay so if you follow my blog, you should know that I’m a die-hard San Francisco Giants fan. Well, this Ryu guy is now a pitcher for the LA Dodgers, the team we’ve had probably one of the most notable rivalries with in all of baseball history! Anyways, last time this guy pitched against us, we beat the dodgers 9-0! It was a really great game.

Hey she likes it!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed beef with garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce and Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Pepper and a mix of shredded Colby and Jack cheese. The noodles came out well enough – standard nice thick ramyun gauge and a good chewiness. The cheese? Coats well and turns everything into a cheese flavored tangle. Good stuff! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#1418: Ottogi Ppushu Ppushu Noodle Snack Grilled Chicken Flavor

Sweet – another noodle snack! I think we’re pretty close to an annual noodle snack top ten list soon – just trying to figure out a good time to release it… Halloween perhaps? Superbowl time? If you have an idea, shoot me a comment below! Anyways, here’s another one of Ottogi’s Ppushu Ppushu line. This is the first one I’ve seen that’s chicken flavored that I can remember from them. Let”s have a look!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, smash the noodles within the bag. Open bag and take out seasoning sachet. Sprinkle sachet contents into bag and re-close. Shake to distribute flavoring powder. Eat!

The noodle block.

Seasoning powder sachet.

A very light powder.

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles are a smaller gauge than Korean ramyun, and very light and crunchy. The flavoring is a little mystifying; it doesn’t make me think of chicken. It has a salty element, and an acidic element which is a little strange. Then a slightly bitter chemical flavor I didn’t like. For a snack, I’m giving this one 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 645175560050.

Yep – they make commercials for these noodles with KPop stars! here’s one for Ottogi Ppushu Ppushu.
