Here’s a new one from Paldo not yet available in the USA – Namja cup! Namja translates to Man’s or Guy’s – gender-specific noodles – that’s something new! I think would like to know about the ladies’ ramyun and what that would be… Anyways, let’s give this new one from Paldo a gander.
Here’s the side panels (click to enlarge).
Here’s the noodle block.
The powder seasoning packet.
The spicy powder!
Chili infused oil?
Looks like chili oil.
Looks like kamaboko, beef and chicken amongst the veggies.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added kimchi, processed cheese, sweet onion and some Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are pretty good – what you’d expect in a king cup from Paldo. The broth is very good – it has a nicely concocted meat flavor for a second and then a serious wave of heat! I’m enjoying it right now and it is really quite hot. The oil packet is a real plus in this one as it gives the broth a nice extra heartiness. The little bits and pieces of meat and kamaboko and veggies were decent – especially the meat – liked that a lot. A very nice bowl of noodles – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. Paldo is having a ‘Happy Promotion’ – check it out here.UPC bar code 8809296881261 .

From the interview with Paldo I did earlier this year:
TRR> What does the name ‘Paldo’ mean?
PALDO> The word “Pal” means number 8 in Korean and “Do” means Province. If North Korea and South Korea combines together, there are 8 Provinces. Our philosophy is that we as Korean wishes to be united in someday. Even though Korea has separated into North and South after the Korean war, people from 8 provinces are still in Paldo.
