When I first noticed these on Samyang Foods’ Instagram feed, I was really curious. I’ve had the hot Samyang Ramen in the past and liked it. But I thought I should give it a look, especially with the new red look to it.
A little background on this one: in 1963, Samyang Foods introduced Samyang Ramen. It was the first instant noodle in South Korea and after a little finer tuning (originally it was chicken, confused to be a textile), it came into it’s own as an iconic product of South Korea. This is the hot version. Let’s pop the top and check it out!

The soup base sachet.
A reddish powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added beef, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, processed cheese and spring onion. Noodle came out just perfect – great Samyang ramyun gauge I really enjoy. The broth has a nice heat to it and indeed has a ham flavor. I’d always thought ramyun was beef flavored but this sure proves that theory wrong. Delicious! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.
