Re-Review: Meet The Manufacturer: Nongshim Chapagetti Chajang Noodle

Here’s another well-known Nongshim pack – Chapagetti.  Basically, you take spaghetti and combine it with Chajang, which is a black bean sauce – now you have Chapagetti!

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

These noodles are of a wide gauge and mention on Nongshim America’s website says there’s 12% more of them than in other varieties of theirs.

Here’s the stuff that makes the sauce.

Different than most of the seasonings I’ve seen – this is very granular.

Vegetable oil? Usually I’ve seen seasoned oil, but this is straight.

Yeah that looks like vegetable oil!

Finally, the vegetable packet.

An interesting looks little mixture! I looked in the ingredients and as it turns out, there’s potato and pork in here!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some veggies. I distictly remember this being very dry the last time I had this and dry isn’t something that comes to mind here. The noodles are nice and thick and the sauce coats them nicely. The sauce is rich; nice black bean flavor. The veggies and TVP are great – the pork bits especially were enjoyable with a nice bit of chewy freshness. This was good – something I’d eat again. 4.0 our of 5.0 stars!

    I just gave this one a try, and was super disappointed, something that hasn’t happened with a Nongshim that I can recall. It had very little to no flavor- I thought my taste buds must be broken, so I had my husband try it and he thought the same. How weird! I don’t think I’d get this again, and ended up tossing what was left and whipping up some Spicy Tonkotsu instead!

    Are those really pork bits?? 🙁 i dont find any pork in the ingredients. It just says “Texturized vegetable protein (TVP)” which is made of soya beans. I bought the product in Indonesia. Im waiting for your reply. Thanks!

      Yeah no – definitely no pork in this one and I changed it to TVP in the review. One thing though is that this one is made in the United States and while I suspect the ingredients list is identical, I would advise looking at the version you’re getting which is probably from South Korea. Pork isn’t extremely popular in instant noodles there, so I would figure it a rare occurrence.

    Pretty sure there is no pork in this just TVP. The oil is lightly flavored…I tasted it. Kind of like the indomie mi goreng oil packet.
