#1766: Paldo Bulnak Bokeummyun King Noodle

I recently did the Top Ten Spiciest list and the not-so-distant cousin of this one (basically the pack version) was in the second place position. I think this one was definitely violently hot and a good choice for the Fire Noodle Challenge that lots of people do on YouTube. Anyways, let’s see what we have in the bowl and maybe I’ll have to give this Fire Noodle Challenge a shot.

Here’s the distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The liquid sachet.

Has a violently spicy scent.

The vegetables sachet.

A nice little mix.

Finished (click image to enlarge).The noodles are thick and have a great ramyun gauge and texture. Good stuff as always from Paldo. The flavor is like putting an ashed over charcoal briquet in your mouth – it’s extremely spicy. It’s also sweet as well, but the heat sets in and lingers really long. The vegetable bits worked great. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8809296882213.

  1. Hi,

    As a huge instant noodle fan, I love your website. It’s enabling my vice and serves as a great reference point for what to try next. Read through a lot of your reviews and I noticed that a lot of your reviews on the very same product (but differently packaged) varies. For example, your #1766 and #1347 reviews are of the same noodle from the same company, but have different ratings. I was under the impression that since they’re pretty much the exact same noodle, packaged differently, they’d have the same ingredients. What was the difference between the noodles leading to the rating discrepancy?
