#3762: Kim & Kim Easy Pho Rice Noodle Soup – Vietnam

#3762: Kim & Kim Easy Pho Rice Noodle Soup - Vietnam

Saw this one at Boo Han Market in Edmonds, WA and was like – what? If you notice, there’s a South Korean AND a North Korean flag thing going on here. UPDATE: Ah – I’m wrong it’s a Vietnamese flag and a South Korean flag… At least that is what I’m getting out of it – I could be wrong. This looks to be an export product – very interesting imagery.

#3752: Nissin Demae Ramen Miso Tonkotsu Flavor - Hong Kong

Let’s see if this one’s solo flavor does the trick. ...see full post

#3750: Nongshim Soon Kimchi Noodle Soup - United States

I’ve long been a fan of the Soon line of products from Nongshim. If asked whether I’d want Shin Ramyun or Soon, I’d hit the Soon. Why? It just has a really nice smooth finish (it sounds like I’m describing a beer but really it does). This time they’ve got a trifecta of new versions – kimchi, a spicy tomato and a miso tofu. Today kimchi is on the menu – let’s check it out. ...see full post
