First, I want to send a special thank you to Yongmin Park for sending me product samples! See, every year I do the Top Ten South Korean Instant Noodles list and each year it’s starting to seem like I get fewer and fewer products to try from South Korea. People have been getting grumpy about the list too – see, it’s only for products made IN South Korea, not elsewhere. Let’s have a look inside and see what awaits!

New premium varieties – jjamppong and jjajang (click to enlarge).
Budae Jigae (click to enlarge) – if you look at the enlargement, you can see that there are very interesting things on the package – beans, macaroni, sausages… Budae Jigae was developed after the Korean War – lots of US military rations were left for the people and they adapted them into a special stew/soup!
Finally, Bibimmyun – IN A BOWL (click to enlarge)!!! I’ve been trying to get my hands on this for a VERY long time! Thanks again Yongmin Park – you rock!
