Here’s the second of the two packs sent to me by Chris H. of Westport, CT – thanks again! So this is the other extremely popular variety out of Korea, Samyang’s Nagasaki Jjampong. I read that ‘white broth’ instant noodles are all the rage there – none are for sale in the Asian grocery stores I frequent and the ones Chris sent are from Korea. Anyways, let’s give it a try!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). I decided that adding 550mL water and cooking for three minutes would do the trick.
The noodle block in this one’s round.
Powder seasoning packet.
Amazing – it smells and tastes like Jalapeno Cheese Cheetos! It’s pretty tasty!
The veggie packet.
I smell fish and see some seaweed. Curious as to how this will come out.
Finished (click image to enlarge). First, the noodles. Wide and chewy – like an instant udon. The broth is spicy and has a nice heartiness to it. The little veggies are good too – not exactly sure of everything in the packet but it has a meat-like texture; maybe fish? Not sure. All in all, this is excellent. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars! UPC number 8801073110472 – get it here.
