In the last week, I did a ‘Meet The Manufacturer on Indomie and have been enjoying Indonesian instant noodles. Today, I am going to try something completely different – donated by Ramen Place. It’s a Korean seafood big bowl – spicy stuff! This should be interesting as Indonesian noodles have been so different. Here we go!
Here’s the side panels (click image to enlarge).
The noodle block – looks like wide gauge noodles here.
A single seasoning pack – feels full!
It was quite full – of the red spicy powder seasoning!
Under the noodle block was the vegetables. Looks like a decent assortment.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some of the great local veggie mix we made and froze and a little Ajishima Salmon furikake. The noodles in this one were really a disappointment. Very spongy. They didn’t soak up a lot of flavor either which was a bummer. The broth is good, though – it’s been a little while since I’ve had some Korean red soup broth and it was very nice. The veggies were decent too – a nice variety as well as some decent dehydrated seafood rounded things out well. Unfortunately, couldn’t get past the noodles. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars.

B2ST doing an Ottogi commercial.
So my wife and I have been listening to some different music lately. I’ve been trying to listen to the local music of the brands of noodles I’m reviewing. Yesterday we were listening to a lot of K-Pop and this one kind of stood out. ‘Nonsense’ by Koyote
I 2nd on the noodles… too bad, really… though to note, this is one of few bowls that have dried noodles you actually need to microwave, as opposed to the thinner noodles that are happy just to stand in the hot water. Maybe less time nuking would improve these?
