New clothes for the classic! Originally, it was a foam bowl with a paper lid in shrinlkwrap. Then, they reformulated for microwave and had a cardboard sleeve. Now, it’s a plastic wrap with the graphics on that. This is classic – ubiquitous with gas stations and little corner shops, many o which are run by Korean Americans. I used to live in a place that had a little grocery/deli mini mart across the way. The fellow there was Korean American and he had these in there, but with a ridiculous markup. I asked him why once. ‘Because that’s my lunch!’

The noodle block.
A sachet of soup base.
Loose bits from the bowl.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried egg, crushed red pepper, sesame seed, mung bean sprouts, chashu, and spring onion. I completely forgot about this one and just tried it for the first time in forever it seems. The noodle comes out of the microwave excellent. The broth has a very bright, relatively spicy, and savory flavor. Really enthused about the vegetable and fish cake quantity as well. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146250103.
