Well, it’s been a while since I’ve had a version of Neoguri to review. Actually, wait – not that extremely long – they came out with the Neoguri dry stir noodle one recently. So this is one I got up in Canada a couple of months ago.
So Neoguri is a Korean style spicy noodle soup – reddish broth, seaweed, you know the drill. I definitely like the Korean seafood varieties because they are spicy and generally do have a good seafood hit to them. Alright – let’s delve. As this is one from Canada, usually they’re coming from China, but this one is made in Rancho Cucamonga at Nongshim America. Here we go!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, narutomaki, Busan fishcake, spring onion and Colby-Jack cheese. The noodles came out very, very well (I followed the microwave instructions). They had a great chew to them and were of a thick gauge. The broth had a very good spicy seafood taste to it I really liked – more than the other versions of Neoguri I’ve had to date. The amount of broth seemed very minimal using the microwave directions. Seaweed was ubiquitous and welcome. Reminded me of my childhood days on the beach nearby our house. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146035755.
