I’ve seen a lot of these Yopokki variants lately and this one definitely piqued my interest and my wife loves tteokbokki and cheese – and then there’s ramen in there too! It’s a win, win, win! Found this at Asian Family Market on Aurora and 130th in North Seattle – rad store – go check it out! Let’s crack this big pack open and see what dwells within!
Yopokki Cheese Rapokki – South Korea
A big distributor sticker (click to enlarge).
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add tteokbokki and sauce pouch to 500ml boiling water. When it starts to boil, add in noodle block and cook for 4 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Hey look – a pack of Samyang Sarimyun! Sarimyun is literally just a block of noodles without seasoning.
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge).
The noodle block.
A huge sachet of sauce powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, fried chashu, marinated egg, and fried garlic. The noodle came out nicely as did the tteokbokki – nice chew on both. The cheese sauce was interesting, but not surprising. My wife wasn’t a big fan and it had to so with the sweetness of it. Cheese flavor sauces from Asia tend to have a little sweetness usually – I however did find it quite nice. Definitely no aspect of spiciness whatsoever here which was ad advertised. If you haven’t tried tteokbokki before, this is a neat place to start. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8809054401748.
