A big rice noodle bowl from South Korea graces my desk today. I must say, this is the only one I’ve ever seen mentioning ‘clean room’ on the label. Unsure if this is in reference to where it’s produced or has to do with ‘clean eating.’ Either way, let crack it open and look within.

The rice noodles.
A soup base sachet.
A lot of powder.
A big square in a sachet.
A freeze dried block – probably containing seafood and vegetables.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, crab claw fish cake, Busan fish cake and carved squid. The rice noodles hydrated very nicely and have a soft chew to them. I used kitchen scissors and made a couple of crosscuts to make them more manageable. The broth was very nice too – a good seafood taste with a nice body. It has just a note of spiciness as well. The included garnish was nice and included lots of nice chewy bits of seafood and vegetables. This was much better than I expected – 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 087703111165.
Very odd people trying Korean street food.
