“Ramen noodles in Korean-style hot chili soup. As you can imagine from the packaging, it’s pretty hot! But tasty! Topped with shiitake mushroom, green onion, and carrot. Have a glass of water ready before you eat!”
Curious if this will be any different from the other versions out there. Let’s find out!

A spicy scented powder.
Loose bits from inside the cup.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, hard oiled egg, spring onion and shichimi togarashi. The noodles came out slightly spongy. They’re thick and soak up a lot of the broth’s flavor, which is a plus. The broth has a spicy heat and a slightly bitter back to it. Expected something a little different but seems like standard Shin Ramyun cup form. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 8801043030694.
