This Sogokimyun is a bit interesting. It looks to be a re-branding of another one. I just looked through everything and found this one from September of 2010 – that’s one old review! What I remembered was seeing the windmills on the packs. The difference though is that this version and the older one – this one doesn’t include a vegetables sachet, only the powder one. Wow – 1,378 bowls of noodles ago. I guess if you do something every day, it does tend to add up! Just about to the 1,500th review; I knew I’d hit it at some point. Next will be the big 2k. Anyways; let’s check this one out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles in 550ml water along with the sachet contents.Now on here it says to add soup base and flakes (vegetables) – although there’s no ‘flakes’ sachet.
The large noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
It appears it contains some vegetable matter in with the powder seasoning.
First time with Andy since the trip. He wanted to try something new – so this is a chicken cup from Thailand with a little cheese.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sukiyaki beef, sliced green onion and egg. The noodles are great – nice thick ramyun with a good chew and texture. The broth is also very nice – good beefy taste. I didn’t get a really spicy hit off of it though. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 074603005892,
I couldn’t find the Sogokimyun on anazon, but here’s the rich beef version here.
