The first time I tried bibimmyun a long time ago I really didn’t get it. Spicy, sweet, and worst of all, it was cold. Yep – when I first started reviewing, the thought of cold noodles made me cringe. I found this one recently at HMart and honestly have been holding back on it since I just reviewed a bibimmyun a couple weeks ago – but no more. It’s getting colder outside – rainy too. Bibimmyun is really a dish for the hot summer months when something cool and refreshing really hits the spot. Well, maybe there will be a sun break today even though the forecast is for 10 days straight of rain… Let’s check this one out!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block and vegetable sachet contents to 600ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Drain and rinse well with cold water. Add in contents of liquid sachet. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The liquid sachet.
Has a sweet and spicy scent.
The vegetables sachet.
Lots of stuff in there!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, hard boiled egg and red pepper strands. The noodles really got thick and were of good quality here. The sauce was good – very standard kind of bibimmyun flavor most brands have. The vegetables hydrated well but were kind of unremarkable. Nonetheless, a nice plate of bibimmyun. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801073113251.
Samyang Foods makes the famous Fire Noodle Challenge noodle – here’s a recent video from them.
