There’s been a lot of hub bub coming out of South Korea lately – all the big companies have brand new Jjajang and Jjamppong varieties it seems. They’re all going a little more premium than their old offerings. This is awesome for me, well – as long as I can get my hands on them. I finally was able to score this one at the local South Korean grocery. Let’s crack it open and see what we’ve got here.
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains seafood. To prepare, add everything but the oil to 500ml boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Add in oil. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base powder.
The vegetables and seafood.
The packaging mentions shrimp and crab.
The oil sachet.
A deep colored oil.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added kamaboko, narutomaki and carved squid. The noodles are big and plump and chewy – wider as well. They’re fantastic! Would love to see a Shin Ramyun using this noodle! The broth is equally wonderful insofar as the flavor has this taste and smell. It reminds me of a seafood barbecue and it’s really really good. The oil adds a nice extra to the broth. Spicy, tasty and awesome! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146034321.
