#1575: Paldo Jjajangmen Chajang Noodle King Bowl

It’s still winter, so I thought something hearty would be a nice touch today. Jjajangmen is a Chinese-South Korean fusion dish. Ramyun noodles and Chajang sauce, rich and thick with black beans. Let’s have a look at this new bowl from Paldo!

Here’s the detail from the top and bottom of the outer wraps (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. to prepare, add boiling water to line and steep for 4 minutes, leaving sachet on top to warm up. Poke holes in lid spots shown and drain noodles. Add contents of sauce sachet and combine. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

As the sachet is rather large and is warmed on the lid, here is the picture – no picture of just the sauce in a cup today.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprouts. The noodles had a particularly interesting scent when I opened the lid – much like fried food – it was kind of nice. The flavor of the sauce is excellent; it coats everything very nicely and the black beans throughout are very good. A very premium instant. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 648436100859.

Paldo products are popular in Russia as well – under the name Doshirak, here’s Jjajangmen!


  1. I enjoyed the noodle bowl, I added mung beansprouts and small prawns to mine. I heated the prawns in the microwave before adding them, lay the mung beansprouts on top of the noodles and the sauce packet on top of the beans, before adding the boiling water. This helped everything to heat up – but my one complaint with it was that the bowl’s contents were still lukewarm by the time I was eating. Disappointing. I should have turned them out into a bowl and microwaved the lot to heat everything back up – but that defeats the object of the pack being “instant” or thereabouts.
