#998: Nongshim Shin Ramyun Black Cup Rich Spicy Beef Flavor Premium Noodle Soup

Hey look at that! The new Shin Ramyun Black cup! Been wanting to review it since I first saw it. I reviewed the other Shin Ramyun Black cup (which was onion flavored) a while back and really enjoyed it immensely. This one’s being promoted by PSY! Yep – Mr. Gangnam Style himself. Let’s check it out…

Here’s the lid with instructions (click image to enlarge).

Side panels (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block. These are great raw – crunchy and witty.

The main seasoning packet.

Nice and spicy!

This one’s the secondary powder seasoning, Sul-Long-Tang. What’s Sul-Long-Tang? Wikipedia says:

Seolleongtang is a Korean broth tang (soup) made from ox bones (mostly leg bones), brisket and other cuts. Seasoning is generally done at the table according to personal taste by adding salt, ground black pepper, red pepper, minced garlic, or chopped spring onions. It is a local dish of Seoul.

Has a nice savory flavor – lots of spices.

The vegetables. A lot of mushrooms in there – big pieces too!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some beef I cut into small pieces and sauteed with minced garlic and Worcestershire sauce, green onion, sweet onion, kimchi and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are good – very plentiful and have a nice chew to them. The broth is great – spicy and has a nice rich flavor – that Sul-Long-Tang powder really makes it a lot heartier. The veggies? Decent and plentiful. I like this cup a lot! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146014408 – get it here.

#751: Meet The Manufacturer: Nongshim Shin Ramyun Black Premium Onion Flavor (Cup)

Check it out – the new Shin Black cup! Onion flavor! I’ve had one of these chilling on my shelf for a while now – been wanting to review it and now that it’s out on the market, I can! Let’s check it out!

Something to note: Nongshim is a big sponsor of Expo 2012 in Yeosu, Korea. They have their own pavilion showing off this product! Here’s a link to their blog to check it out!

Here’s the lid and the instructions.

I have a visual aid device that will help me reading fine print. It was very helpful for getting images off the sides of the cup – it’s dark red on black – colors that my eyes don’t do too well with! Click image to enlarge.

The noodle block.

Here’s the spicy stuff!

Definitely some nice spiciness here!

A packet of onionny goodness!

I took a little pinch of this and tasted. Wow – this is definitely one for those who enjoy onions – it is seriously onionny – seriously!

The vegetables. These were loose in the cup. One thing I’ve found annoying is that usually the veggies in instant noodles are tiny and light. These are decent sized chunks of mushrooms and other veggies! This looks decent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Okay so let’s get right to it. The noodles are pretty good – more of them than I had expected from a cup. Thin like one would expect. The broth: this is some of the best liquid I have ever tasted. It is seething with onion! It has a sweet and spicy taste to it. Spot on! The veggies: okay, see that on top in the middle? That’s a slice of garlic. Underneath are some mushrooms. The garlic tastes like a piece of garlic sliced thin; it isn’t mushy – it’s crunchy! The mushrooms are quite good too!  If you are a fan of spicy Korean noodles and really like onions a lot, this is definitely for you. I am a person who falls into the affirmative on both of these qualities. This is unique and excellent – 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – a must try! UPC bar code 031146014408 .
