#2670: Nongshim Kimchi Ramyun Noodle - China - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

I picked this one up on a recent trip to Canada. Ok, so you might be wondering about this one. It’s made in Shanghai, China. Nongshim has factories all over the place and I’ve found that the different factories have slight variances in flavors. In the USA, this product would probably be coming from their Nongshim America factory in California. Hop the border though and most of the products up there come from China. It’s funny because they also have ones from the United States there as well. Anyways, Kimchi time! Let’s check it out.

Looks like kimchi and other veggies.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added processed cheese, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Busan fish cake, and spring onion. The noodles came out with the slightest tinge of sponginess. The broth has a nice kimchi taste and reminds me that it’s definitely from China; its flavor profile leans in that direction I think. Bit of kimchi are prevalent and of decent quality. A well-rounded variety. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 6920238083023.

    That’s interesting that the Chinese manufactuered cup version contains fish. The US cup version (not the bagged option) is vegetarian/vegan.
