I thought it was about time to re-review this one. When people ask me about hot and spicy instant noodles that they can possibly find at a local Asian grocery, I usually steer them towards Teumsae Ramyun. Many consider this one to be the ultimate spiciest, although I have had one or two I think that have been hotter. That’s not to say that this stuff won’t challenge even the staunchest of spicy fans. This is mean. Real mean. If you ate a spicy pepper, the best thing to get rid of the heat would be a crunchy chip – when you chew, it scrapes the heat off your palate. Or milk, or sugar. The last thing would be beer or water. Well, this is soup. It sinks that spicy heat right down into your taste buds even deeper! Let’s revisit this spicy Paldo Teumsae Ramyun again and see why it’s been on the Top Ten Spicy List since the list’s inception.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and sachet contents to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
The large noodle block.
A soup base sachet.
A very spicy scent.
A vegetable sachet.
Cabbage, green onions, red peppers and mushroom.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprout, beef sauteed with soy sauce, kimchi, spring onion and egg. The noodles are quite nice – very full and chewy with that great ramyun gauge. The broth is so spicy; it’s like a freight train of spiciness. Mere words can’t describe how spicy Teumsae Ramyun is. The vegetables hydrated very well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

A pretty epic video from the makers of Teumsae Ramyun, Paldo.
I saw a YouTube video recently where a man is trying to handle the heat of this instant ramyun. He couldn’t – to the point of cursing these noodles. Another reason that Paldo’s Teumsae Ramyun is #1 on the Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles of All Time list. But Teumsae; what is that? Teumsae is a well known restaurant chain in Korea. They’re well known for their spicy ways as well!

The fiery powder packet!
Here it is – a lot of burning fire awaiting your tastebuds!
The veggie packet.
Quite a bit of veggies in this one.
Finished (click image to enlarge). I added an egg, some onions, a slice of processed cheese and a bit of roast beef with Krazy Mixed Up Salt on top. As always, I sampled before I added everything. The noodles are thick and chewy. The broth is just plain mean! Yeah – this is the hottest and spiciest stuff out there that I’ve found. I had good reason to put this at #1 on that spiciest ramen list! The veggies are good too. Also, just to let you know how how this stuff is, it’s burning my mouth really good as I eat it with the egg and cheese and onions added – wow! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 648436100613.
