So here’s one I’ve really enjoyed for a long time. Indeed, it has also been in exitence for quite awhile as well. It’s the original variety that was introduced to the South Korean market back in 1963. Initially, it was mistaken as a textile which is kind of funny, but that didn’t last long at all. This is the packaging for export, but it’s the same as what you’ll find in South Korea.
People try to fogure out what the flavor is; I was in that camp at the outset years ago, but as it turns out it’s ham flavor. Kind of smokyt and salty with a spicy bump to it. Let’s try it again for the first time in it’s relatively new packaging.

The noodle block.
A sachet of soup base.
A sachet of vegetable flakes.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added sesame seed, scallion, chashu pork, raw egg yolk, crushed red pepper, and medium cheddar. Noodle has a perfectly wonderful gauge. The noodle itself has that thin gummy layer with a more chewy inner core. The broth has a smoky ham kind of taste, augmented with a nice bit of vegetables. A favorite of mine. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.
