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!
