I’m pretty jazzed – got a couple things this last trip to the Asian grocery and going to try one of them today. Here’s another one of the new version Nongshim Bowl Noodle varieties.
Here’s some info on the sides of the cardboard (click image to enlarge). It’s funny; I just thought it was spicy flavor until I looked closer and saw it was hot & spicy beef.
Here’s the lid.
The noodle block.
The seasoning packet.
Red spicy powder!
Here’s a couple little bits and piece of the veggies that were in the bottom of the bowl – this was just some, not all.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some kimchi, some processed cheese, a little beef lunch meat, some of the Daesang Gochujang that the ladyt who wrote the JoongAng Ilbo article sent, a little Tabasco Buffalo Style hot sauce and a sprinkle of Ajishima Kimchi furikake. Again, my reviews are done right when the noodles are done – not after everything is added. The noodles are nice – a warm and relaxing noodle that is firm but reliably soft enough to not bve annoying. The broth has a great spiciness to it – a little different than I remember before – definitely a chili powder and cumin flavor going on here. The veggies were a little hard to find but what I did find was decent. All in all, not bad. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. As for the additions: I really like kimchi and really wish I had gotten some sooner! It crunchy, spicy and good stuff! I didn’t know that the jars were under pressure; exploding kimchi! The Gochujang was not what I expected; it’s really tasty! I’ve seen these enormous angry red tubs at the Korean supermarkets around here and always wondered what the stuff was. I can say that after I’ve gone through all of the tubes that were sent to me, I’ll be most definitely going to continue enjoying this stuff. UPC bar code 031146250103 – get it here.
Pretty funny – chugging spicy bowl noodles!
This is rad!
