Re-Review: Paldo Teumsae Ramyun Noodles With Soup Mix

I thought it was about time to re-review this one. When people ask me about hot and spicy instant noodles that they can possibly find at a local Asian grocery, I usually steer them towards Teumsae Ramyun. Many consider this one to be the ultimate spiciest, although I have had one or two I think that have been hotter. That’s not to say that this stuff won’t challenge even the staunchest of spicy fans. This is mean. Real mean. If you ate a spicy pepper, the best thing to get rid of the heat would be a crunchy chip – when you chew, it scrapes the heat off your palate. Or milk, or sugar. The last thing would be beer or water. Well, this is soup. It sinks that spicy heat right down into your taste buds even deeper! Let’s revisit this spicy Paldo Teumsae Ramyun again and see why it’s been on the Top Ten Spicy List since the list’s inception.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and sachet contents to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The large noodle block.

A soup base sachet.

A very spicy scent.

A vegetable sachet.

Cabbage, green onions, red peppers and mushroom.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprout, beef sauteed with soy sauce, kimchi, spring onion and egg. The noodles are quite nice – very full and chewy with that great ramyun gauge. The broth is so spicy; it’s like a freight train of spiciness. Mere words can’t describe how spicy Teumsae Ramyun is. The vegetables hydrated very well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 648436100613.

If you’re up to the challenge of a super spicy bowl of South Korean noodles, buy some here!

  1. Hi Hans,

    first of all: FANTASTIC WEBSITE !!! I came across your website by coincidence and since I also like instant noodles, I could find a lot interesting and entertaining information here 🙂 !

    Now I have a question regarding the Paldo Teumsae Ramyun to you:

    Since I want to try a new instant noodle, I went to a Asian food store recently and saw the Paldo Teumsae Ramyun. After I checked it out on your website and on the internet, I was pretty shocked that it seems to be extremely hot and spicy although I can handle very hot and spicy stuff quite well !

    Now, in order for me to assess how spicy it is, could you please maybe tell me how spicy it is compared to e.g. the Nongshim Shin Ramyun and Mama Shrimp Tom Yum Flavour ? Then I have at lease a reference value 🙂

    Thanks a lot and greetings from Germany,
