#485: Ottogi Asian Style Instant Noodle Hot & Spicy Ramen Cup

Sounds like a pretty standard cup noodle. Thing is is that it’s Korean, so this kind of spicy is different than most spicy stuff.

One packet. Stalwart and unmoving.

Quite a bit of powder was in that packet. Reddish powder!!!

The noodles were very standard – about what you’d expect. Not too bad, very basic and kind of boring. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars – a good base of operations for adding some chicken, fish or an egg to!

More 7-11 stuff…


  1. I do most of my ramen shopping at a Korean grocer. And I learned a while ago, if noodles made in Korea say ‘spicy’ on the package they mean it.

    I tried a package of the Nong Shim Shin Ramyun once. I figured it has to be good since all of the Asian stores here have them stacked to the ceiling. They even sell the bowl version at 7-11.

    Man it was hot. I need to take a tums just thinking about it.
    Now I always check this site before I buy anything new. No more liquid fire for me.

    1. You know, I was thinking as I did up this review that I should add a Hot & Spicy category so people could look stuff up by that as well… Ya know, that Shin Ramyun isn’t as deadly with a couple of eggs in it. I’m looking for Shin Ramyun Black – I guess they came out with it in Korea and its 2x expensive and has health claims that they couldn’t prove… Sounds interesting!
