#2983: Nongshim Spicy Zha Wang Noodle – United States

#2983: Nongshim Spicy Zhawang Noodle Dish With Roasted Bean Sauce - United States

Here’s one that was sent by Exotic Noods – a company that sells subscription noodle boxes. Thanks! This one is a spicy take on Zha Wang, a popular product from Nongshim – this one’s their spicy version. Zha Wang might sound a lot like Jjajang – that’s no accident. Zha Wang is basically jjajang but with a different name. Let’s give it a go!

Something to add in at the end.

Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles are just superb – nice thickness and width. The sauce works very well and coats everything – there’s only one problem. It’s spicy, and I really don’t feel like spicy works for me in this situation. It’s like if you made spicy Lucky Charms – kind of a ‘wha – huh?’ feel to it. I really hoped for a light spicy but it was pretty strong. Give me the non spicy any day – it’s excellent – but not a fan of this. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 031146041190.
