#918: Nongshim Tempura Udon Flavor Cup Ramyun

Here’s the last of the new Nongshim cups – looks like a good one too!

Here’s a close-up of the lid.

Here’s the information from the side panels (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The seasoning powder packet.

Here’s the powder – has a kind of sweetness to it.

Here’s everything that was in the cup as far as veggies go. Lots of nice looking bits of pieces including narutomaki and other goodies!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added odeng, kamaboko, sweet onion, green onion and a pinch of Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are good – a little wider than what you normally see in a cup noodle and not at all spongy. The broth is a sweet and seafood flavor I liked very much. As for the extras like the veggies and narutomaki, it’s superb – they hydrate very nicely. It seemed a little more ‘premium’ than I expected from a little cup noodle and I really liked it a lot! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 031146017096

PSY is now a spokesperson for Nongshim and so I thought I’d throw this in – it’s PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’ but as a Halloween light display – just watch it…

    Bought this on this guy’s recommendation and I have to say I totally REGRET IT! The noodles are flavorless and bland as it does not do a good job absorbing the broth. Once the tasteless noodles are gone, the broth is decent enough but again on the bland side.Just seems like they put together ingredients that don’t belong together. I normally love Nongshim ramen (been eating them since the 1980s) but I’d have to score this one 2/5. Yeah, won’t be buying this again.
