Nope – this is not a reference to the popular South Korean K-Pop group – it’s a reference to the time of day. 2pm is a common time for a quick bite to eat in the afternoon. Let’s have a look.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added grape tomatoes, hard boiled egg with Urashima Vegetable Furikake, coriander (cilantro), and chicken with Walla Walla sweet onion I sauteed in garlic salt and black pepper. The noodles have a slightly less crumbly texture than the other varieties and seem slightly thinner. The broth all but disappears as it’s only a scant 225ml – but it turns into a very nice sauce that makes everything so nice! A little spiciness and a very luxurious curry flavor run all through these noodles and I found it excellent. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 9504000021047.
