What a week! So last week I didn’t do a single regular review. I was knee deep editing all sorts of unboxings and episodes of The Chocolate Break. While we were out I found this one. I’ve seen it many times before, but buying 5 packs isn’t something I like to do at all anymore as first they’re expensive and second I end up with three extra packs to give a home to.
First, this is made in South Korea. However this is an export version and definitely labeled for sale in the United States. This is what is called an export product, and since you wouldn’t find it in this manner in South Korea, even though it’s manufactured there and not at Nongshim in the United States, it’s getting the United States stamp. What’s interesting about this is that it contains pork bone broth and pork fat, so don’t know how they’re getting around that.
Now, this looks really promising. However I think this may just be a new version of one that’s been around for a while. I’ve seen potato pork from Nongshim up in Canada from their Chinese factory. It’s really tasty stuff! Then again, this one seems to have a little more emphasis on spiciness so that’s interesting. Let’s check it out!
Nongshim Gamjatang myun – United States
Detail of the entire package (click to enlarge). Contains pork. To prepare, add everything but liquid base to 500ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Add in liquid contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dry sachet.
A lot of powder.
A wet sachet.
A liquid paste.
A garnish sachet.
A colorful mixture.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added pork for Korean BBQ, green onion, sesame seeds, and fried crispy garlic. The noodles are just right – nice thickness and chew. The show stopper is the broth which has a nice spiciness and rich pork flavor. I really liked the varied included garnish as well – everything comes together in a very tasty dish. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146041732.
