Here’s a new variety of Paldo’s Bibim Men line to come out recently. Jjol means ‘chewy.’ Bibim Men – now this is slightly trickier but isn’t that hard. Bibimbap is a mix of vegetables, meat and an egg topped with gochujang (a spicy sauce) over rice. It’s one of my favorite Korean dishes, often served in a stone bowl and sizzling like nothing else! Well, the ‘bap is rice. In Jjol Bibim Men, the Men is the same as -myun or myeon, which means noodles. So what you have here is a cold, spicy, chewy noodle dish. I’m hungry – let’s get to it! Bring on the Jjol Bibim Men!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure whether it contains meat or not. To prepare, boil 600ml water. Add noodle block and cook 5 minutes. Drain. Rinse with cold water and return to pot. Add in sachet contents and combine. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
The sauce sachet.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added Romaine lettuce, hard boiled egg, mung bean sprouts and green nira. The noodles are indeed chewy and of a wide gauge as is typical and ubiquitous of South Korean ramyun. The flavor is spicy and has garlic notes, a little sweetness and works well with the cold noodles. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8809296882411.
