This one came by way of eBay seller 1theKorea – they’ve got all sorts of neat South Korean varieties, and lots of the spicy ones that aren’t the easiest to find or are unavailable in the USA.
Since the advent of the Fire Noodle Challenge, I’ve seen many, many people making the original variety with broth. In fact, the original (and all others beside stew) are dry noodles, meaning all but a scant amount of liquid is drained off of the noodles, and then seasonings added and stirred in. I’ve been curious about this one; I wonder if it’s kind of like what they were making or if it’s something different altogether. So let’s crack open this pack and see what’s inside!
Samyang Foods Stew Buldak Bokkeumtangmyun – South Korea
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add the liquid sachet to 500ml boiling water and bring to a boil. Add the noodle block and cook for 5 minutes. Add in dry sachet. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dry sachet.
A powder with bits of vegetable.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chicken massaged with gochujang, drizzled with sesame chilli oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper and baked at 375 for 45 minutes. The noodles are indicative of the trend in South Korean instants – thicker and wider. Good quantity and chew. The broth was pretty exciting stuff. Indeed it was spicy – less so than the others – but it also had a tasty sweetness. Moreover, it was thick but not overly oily. Definitely tied everything together well. Very impressed. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801073113329.
