Oh boy, oh boy… I did a big sort of all the noodles I had in my hampers and one thing I found was a huge amount were expired – not just a little, but like expires in 2018 (it’s 2020). Now that my noodle hoard has dwindles (I think I tossed a good 50 packs/cups/bowls), I saw someone else touting this one as a new add to their stash. Well lo and behold, this one made the cut – it expires next week, so I’d better get on it. Not only that, this sounds like a mukbang if I’ve ever heard of one. Let’s do it.
O’Taste Habanero Tteokbokki With Noodles – South Korea
An import sticker (click to enlarge).
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add 80ml water to the line in the cup. Add noodles, veggies, and seasoning. Microwave for 3 and a half minutes. To prepare on the stove (how I’ll be doing it) Add 160ml water to a pot and boil. Add noodles and cook for a minute and a half. Add veggies and seasoning, stir in, and cook an additional minute and a half.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sesame seed and spring onion. The vermicelli was soft and had a nice bit of texture to it. Tteokbokki was alright – chewy and a good size. The sauce was spicy and very sweet – definitely imparts a habanero hit to it. Good stuff. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8809061679024.
