#648: Nongshim Noodle Soup Seafood Ramyun

This was sent to me by Greg B. of Marathon, Florida! I was a little surprised that I haven’t reviewed this one before, but sure enough, I haven’t! Let’s rip open some Korean ramyun!

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

Came with two packets – a powder seasoning on top and veggies on the bottom.

Yeah here’s where all that sodium’s coming from! A huge angry red mound of spicy goodness!

Usually it’s a full circle, but a little got crunched during shipping.

The broth is a great balance of heat and that ‘of the sea’ taste. The veggies are ample and everywhere, just like I like. I like this one a lot – kind of like Neoguri but different slightly. Good stuff! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. The UPC barcode is 031146155200 and you can get it here.

I really dig Gershon Kingsley, but unfortunately, he’s a Yankees fan.
