#2637: Samyang Foods Jjajang Big Bowl - South Korea - The Ramen Rater

I’ve tried the pack version of this and it was some of the best I’ve had. I really like that the South Korean companies have now adopted the wider thick noodle in a lot of products. These have a little extra character and are very good. So Jjajang usually begins the word jjajangmyeon – basically a noodle with black bean sauce. Let’s see how the bowl version of this product fares.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles are great – happy that they’re using this wider style that’s become popular lately. The jjajang sauce is thick and coats every surface. It has a very nice tastiness to it which I really enjoy – seems meaty without meat. The included bits were alright. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801073210950.
