#1665: Paldo Vina Koreno Premium Mushroom Flavor

Paldo Foods is a South Korean company, and it looks like they’ve expanded to Vietnam with Paldo Vina. Now mushroom isn’t generally my favorite flavor, but I’ve been surprised in the last year or so at how much I’ve liked many mushroom instants. Let’s see how this one pans out.

Here’s the back f the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free, but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 400-450ml water and add noodle block and sachet contents. Cook for 4 minutes and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The powder soup base sachet.

Has a musty mushroom kind of scent.

The vegetables sachet.

A smattering of vegetables.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprouts, mushrooms and spring onion. The noodles are pretty standard ramyun – thick with a little more chewiness. The broth had a little spicy hit and a kind of funky mushroom flavor. Not a fan of it as it reminded me of dirt. 1.,5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8936028640312.

#1610: Paldo Vina Koreno Premium Ginseng Flavor

I’ve always heard good things about ginseng for vitality, etcetera. But vitality noodles? Hmm. I’ll admit I know little about ginseng, so here’s what wikipedia has on it:

The root is most often available in dried form, either whole or sliced. Ginseng leaf, although not as highly prized, is sometimes also used. Folk medicine attributes various benefits to oral use of American ginseng and Asian ginseng (P. ginseng) roots, including roles as an aphrodisiac, stimulant, type II diabetes treatment, or cure for sexual dysfunction in men.[8]

Ginseng may be included in small doses in energy drinks[9] or herbal teas, such as ginseng coffee.[10] It may be found in hair tonics and cosmetic preparations, as well, but those uses have not been shown to be clinically effective.

Interesting – curious how I’ll feel after a bowl of ginseng noodles! Let’s check ’em out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. to prepare, add package contents to 400ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

The soup base powder. Has an almost garlic and chicken scent.

The vegetables sachet.

Mostly spring onion – has a kind of tea scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added white onion. The noodles had a nice thick gauge – although these are made in Vietnam, they’re South Korean style ramyun. They had a very slight sponginess I wasn’t a fan of. The broth was really quite nice – usually ‘healthy’ variants have a funky taste but this was almost like a garlic chicken soup broth. It also had a decent consistency to it which I also liked. The vegetables hydrated nicely. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8936028640015
