Oh hey, ramen bokki! So this is a fusion of two foods: South Korean ramyun and one of the words I would say I’ve seen spelled about a zillion different ways, tteokbokki. Tteokbokki are big chewy tubes made from rice flour and they’re really good. Usually, it’s made with a spicy and sweet sauce, egg, fish cake, etc. Good stuff! So this is that but instead of with the rice tubes, you get the noodles. Let’s check it out!
I’m reviewing this on September 5th – and all the news right now concerns North Korea and rising tensions over there. Hopefully, peace wins out. Let’s check it out!

The noodle block.
Loose bits in the cup.
The powder base sachet.
A lot of powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Busan fishcake, kamabomo, and spring onion. The noodles are of a thinner gauge than the standard thick ramyun with a soft tooth and nice character. The broth which is more of a sauce has a bright red color and definitely has the sweet and spicy character of the sauce accompanied with tteokbokki. The included garnish has fishcake and is nice to see. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801073211018.
