Well lookie here – another one from Colin – thanks again! This one’s a cheesy version of the ever popular Samyang Foods Buldak Bokkeummyun. This is what people use to do the famous ‘fire noodle challenge’ – although this is the cheesy version. This stuff is hot – real hot. The Ramen Rater’s top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodle Of All Time list kinda hot. Let’s take a look.
Samyang Foods Cheese Type Buldak Bokkeummyun – South Korea
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 600ml boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Drain. Add 120ml water. Add in sachet contents and stir well. Stirfry for 30 second. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The liquid base sachet.
Smells very spicy!
The cheese powder sachet.
Cheese powder flecked with herbs.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and spring onion. The noodles were great – only cooking them for 3 minutes does the trick where in a soup version 4 or more would probably be prescribed. Thick ramyun from the original South Korean ramyun company – a good chew and gauge. The flavor is pretty much identical to the original fire noodle challenge noodle, the cheese only goes so far. I could see this one with a liquid sachet of cheese one could heat and squeeze over the noodles and give it even more cheese flavor. The cheese powder works pretty well, though quickly overpowered by the fiery taste . Don’t be fooled by the serene nature of the plate you see above; dragonflies here breathe fire! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801073113268.
