#1969: Nongshim Noodle Soup Seasoned With Real Kimchi

There are a few different iterations of this one – I reviewed one a long time ago and I think I liked it, and then they came out with a newly packaged version that I never ended up trying. Now in it’s (at least) third set of clothes, I think it’s definitely time for a new review. If you take a look at the package from the old review, you’ll notice the nutrition facts are indeed different – a definite mark of being a different recipe. Let’s dig in!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add package contents to 500ml boiling water and cook 4-5 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has that red color ramyun usually has with a tangy scent.

The vegetables sachet.

Looks like a little more kimchi than anything else in the mixture – the old one was more of a mix of things.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added beef for Korean BBQ, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and egg. The noodles are just right – perfect thick and chewiness of ramyun. The broth has a nice spicy red ramyun hit and a nice piquantness from the myriad bits of kimchi in the mix. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146181018.

Re-Review: Nongshim Kimchi Ramyun Noodles With Soup


My Aunt and her daughter went to an Asian store in San Francisco and picked up some noodles for me! Here’s one of them. Been wanting to re-review therm for a while! Thanks!!!

Here’s the back of the package.

The noodle block.

The seasoning packet. Kind of interesting; usually the seasonings are in a red packet and veggies in green, but this one’s backwards!

Lots of spicy red powder!

The veggie packet.

Looks like a nice mixture.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added kimchi, egg, onion, processed cheese and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are really nice and buttery – wasn’t expecting that; they’re better than I remembered! The broth has a nice heat and a strong tang to it. The veggies are nice as well. Does it taste like kimchi? Yeah – it’s got a nice kimchi flavor to it – spicy and has that kimchi tanginess. Good stuff – 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146181018.
