#4592: Kobe Jiwa Pagi Mi Instan Rasa Soto Segeer – Indonesia

#4592: Kobe Jiwa Pagi Mi Instan Rasa Soto Segeer - Indonesia

First and foremost, thanks to Pher Engi for sending this over! Soto segeer means ‘fresh soto.’ I did a little research and found that Jiwa Pagi means ‘morning soul.’ These noodles contain carrot and green beans – also no MSG here. These are healthy variety. Sounds interesting – this also the same company (Kobe) that makes the BonCabe instant noodles and seasonings. Oh, you might not know what soto is to begin with – Wikipedia, if you please… ...see full post

#4590: Daebak Habanero Kimchi Jjigae Flavour - Malaysia

You may have heard of budae jjigae, which features assorted meats. This is a kimchi jjigae, which has kimchi at the forefront. Of the extra spicy varieties of this range, this is the only soupy variety, also the only one not having chicken at the forefront. Well, I do have some chicken, so it will make an appearance in here. Let’s cook it up! ...see full post

#4573: Daebak Habanero Spicy Chicken Flavour - Malaysia

Well, I have just been informed that this cup is pink and I’ve always thought it was orange. I figure I can get at least another ready set go from the kids as they’re home for mid-winter break this week. It’s been pretty insane around here. I’m ready for my mouth to catch on fire again this week, so let’s have at it. Here we go! Mukbang at the bottom. ...see full post

#4567: Daebak Ghost Pepper Spicy Chicken Flavour – Malaysia

#4567: Daebak Ghost Pepper Spicy Chicken Flavour - Malaysia

A big happy birthday for Miles on his 8th birthday!!! Yay!

New packaging – with the little spokescharacter Rangyi, this one is a little different than the previous versions. This one you can put as little or as much ghost pepper oil in it. I’m going to put it all in of course. It looks like it’s the same size oil sachet as the previously reviewed pack version, so this should get a good burn going – mukbang below. Let’s begin. ...see full post

#4546: Daebak Rabokki Flavour – Malaysia

#4546: Daebak Rabokki Flavour - Malaysia

Oh hey now I’m psyched. I love rabokki. It’s a combination of tteokbokki, a rice cake tube, and ramyeon. Alone, kind of bland, but paired with tteokbokki sauce, it’s absolutely delightful. Now, you might wonder how to pronounce tteokbokki. It’s a soft t or a hard d. I heard multiple times that it was one of the hardest words for westerners to pronounce in Korean. Well, I watch a few videos and figured I had it down. One day, I had a violent toothache. I mean ready to take an ice pick to the ice pick pain I was experiencing. I hate going to the dentist. It was so bad I begged my wife to take me. Well, they took pity on me and took a look on the spot. They said we can fix it or pull it. I said let’s yank that beast. I opted for the nitrous oxide – laughing gas. I swear, I’d love to have a tank of that stuff. Anyways, that gas really got me going. After I was all gassed up, I spoke to the doctor, a young Korean guy. Well, I was pretty happy what with all the gas, so I thought I’d see if my Korean was any good, so I asked if I could try it on him. So, I said tteokbokki. He said it was pretty good. Then he took that thing out of my head. Thanks, man! Let’s make some rabokki – I have some tteokbokki left over to use with it. Let’s cook! ...see full post

#4541: Uni-President Science Noodle (Hot Pot Version) – Taiwan

#4541: Uni-President Science Noodle - Taiwan

One of these days after a few more packaging designs for this one come out, I may have to do a special Definitive Guide to this stuff. What we have here is a snack noodle. It’s seasoned and simply a snack. I’ve had it a few times – once with a wizard on the pack, one with Santa Claus. The designs are usually whimsical and interesting. They’re mainly for kids, I’m guessing. Well, let’s go ahead and give it a go! ...see full post
