#845: Nongshim Doong Ji Authentic Korean Cold Noodles in Chilled Broth

Well, time for another try with cold noodles! Been really enjoying them recently – curious how these will fare – look pretty fancy!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). So it’s a little different cooking this one, but shouldn’t be too tough.

Buckwheat noodles!

This is one big packet – won’t fit into one of my little cups.

Veggies!

An interesting looking mixture.

This is put on at the very end. Interesting…

Another one of the new bowls from the President of Nongshim America! Thank you again! I decided it would only be right to try each one out the first time with a Nongshim product.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a little roast beef and some hard boiled egg with Krazy Mixed Up Salt. Okay first things first… A while back, I tried Naengmyeon at a Korean restaurant and really didn’t like it. The noodles were really very hard to eat. I read about it on Wikipedia and it mentioned that a lot of times the servers would use big scissors to cut the noodles into shorter more manageable lengths. As I took the first bite of these noodles, I found myself in the same situation, so I tried the scissors – big difference! With that out of the way… The noodles are thin and have an almost gel-like coating. I don’t like this when it comes to bean thread, but it’s different here. The broth is sweet and tasty. No heat like a ramyun – it’s more of a sweet and refreshing flavor. The mustard is different; very interesting! The veggies are good – cucumber and other bits you’d commonly find served cold in there. All in all, I’m really impressed; this was really comparable to the noodle dish I got at a Korean restaurant. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 031146158171 – get it here.
