#1515: Nongshim Neoguri Udon Seafood & Mild

It’s a really cold day today and I think a big bowl of seafood noodles sound good. This is a Nongshim Neoguri I got up in Canada. It’s made in South Korea and it’s the milder version of Neoguri. Raccoons I say raccoons! Why do I say raccoons? Well, check out the video at the end of the post – it’ll all become clear I think. Let’s dig in to some Nongshim Neoguri!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, add all package contents to 550ml boiling water and cook 4-5 minutes. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a nice seafoody scent.

The vegetables sachet.

Bits of seafood and vegetable.

A nice big piece of seaweed. Some people have mentioned that this is not to be eaten, but just as a seasoning. I grew up on an island and miss it a lot, so I tend to eat it. Call me crazy (many do) but it makes me feel like a kid again.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, kamaboko, narutomaki, shrimp, sliced squid, sliced green onion and egg. The noodles are indeed very broad and have a nice chewiness to them. The broth is indeed on the mild side compared to a lot of South Korean noodle soups. It does has a nice and rich seafood flavor, just not all the spice. The vegetable bits hydrated nicely. The seaweed? Soft and quite tasty. A nice well rounded bowl of South Korean seafood udon! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 031146150205.

This is pretty neat – you can get 5 each of Shin Ramyun, Neoguri, Ansungtangmyun and Chapagetti – pretty awesome if you’d like to immerse yourself in South Korean ramyun for a while!

This is a song that they made about raccoons. Why raccoons? Well, Neoguri means raccoon. Why? I’m not exactly sure – but you can find out more Neoguri info here.
