#2895: Fox D.J. Korean Tteokbokki Spicy Snack

Found this one up at China World in Richmond, BC. This one’s confusing as it seems to say it’s a rice cake snack, however it has flour. It doesn’t say whether it’s rice flour or wheat flour. Anyways, I thought this was relevant since it was next to ramen snacks. Let’s take a look!

Interestingly shaped pieces.

Finished (click to enlarge). The shape is interesting which gives a nice mouthfeel. The crunch is very strong and they require a little bit of extra chew to crunch them – they’re kind of hard. The flavor is a spicy and sweet one which is reminiscent of spicy tteokbokki sauce. Not bad. As a snack, I give it 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8809413880122.

The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten South Korean Instant Noodles Of All Time 2016 Edition

South Korea has the highest per person consumption of instant noodles in the world. It’s not a surprise that their instant noodle are quite good – usually the noodles (known as ramyun) are thicker and accompanied by a spicy broth. These are my very favorite varieties of South Korean instant noodles – hope you enjoy!

#10: Paldo Kko Kko Myun

This one is like a bowl of candy to me. We start with nice quality noodles, and then the broth takes over. The broth has a kind of chicken and jalapeno flavor to it. The flavors play off of each other quite nicely and deliver both a strong bite as well as a mellow comfort food flavor in one bowl. The vegetable packet includes little chicken pieces. Original review

#9: Paldo Jjamppong Seafood Noodle King Bowl

Thick and chewy ramyun noodles are augmented by a broth with a good consistency – a little thickness was very good. Also a slightly sweet, seafood and spicy flavor to it I thoroughly enjoyed. Original review here

#8: Samyang Foods Red Nagasaki Jjampong

The noodles are perfect – what I like to find in ramyun! Thick and chewy. The broth is amazing – an excellent level of heat balanced with a respectable amount of seafood flavor. The added vegetable pieces hydrated quite well. Top notch! Original review

#7: Paldo King Bowl Super Spicy Pan Stirfried Noodle

The noodles are of a good ramyun gauge – lots of them as well. The flavor is a kind of seafood and spicy thing and there’s a sweetness going on as well. The supplied vegetables did great – this was an amazingly good stir noodle! Original review

#6: Nongshim Soon Veggie Noodle Soup

This is the first instant noodle on the top ten to be marketed towards vegetarians. What surprised me about it was the broth had such a full flavor to it; deep and satisfying. The noodles are slightly larger in gauge than your run of the mill instant, which is common of South Korean ‘ramyun.’ Magnificent stuff! Original review

#5: Nongshim Zha Wang (Jjawang) Noodles With Chajang Sauce

The noodles are out of this world – soft and chewy, with a nice width and thickness – very hearty. The sauce coats everything and there’s more than enough of it. It has a rich black bean flavor augmented with peas, cabbage and other veggies. This is the best jjajang I’ve ever tried. Original review

#4: Paldo Cheese Noodle

These noodles – wow. I think the best addition to South Korean ramyun has to be cheese. Well, not only is cheese included here but it’s got just the perfect notes of spiciness and strong, rich flavor. The little guy with the sign that says cheese noodle rocks as well. Original review

#3: Paldo Rabokki Noodle

The noodles plumped up just perfectly – thick and a good chew. The broth is more of a sauce and it’s very rich – spicy and sweet – like an adult version of Spaghetti-O’s which I find delectable. Original review

#2: Nongshim Jinjja Jinjja

The noodles are very good – nice thick ramyun. The broth has a seriously spicy kick to it and a very peanut aroma with pork notes. The vegetables hydrated very well. Back with a vengeance! Original review

#1: ChoripDong Hurricane Rice Cake

It’s red. It’s got a thick spicy and sweet sauce. It’s got ramyun. It’s got topokki. This was a real find – Just looking at the picture makes me want some right this instant. The most wonderful big bowl of noodles I’ve ever had. Original review here

#921: Ottogi Jjajang Bokki

Currently, I have only four new varieties in my noodle hamper and this in one of them. The ‘jjajang’ is a black bean and noodle dish which is brothless. Every Korean brand seems to have their own variation – here’s Ottogi’s bowl version.

Complete with drain spouts!

Here are the side panels (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The powder seasoning.

Tons of it!

Veggies!

Nice little mixture.

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles are pretty good – plenty of them and a decent consistency. The jjajang flavor is very nice – all the noodles are enrobed in a tasty black bean sauce. The Veggies could’ve been a little more plentiful. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code  645175571438 .

#349: Ottogi Ramen Bokki

So I asked my lady Vietnamese, Korean or Filipino noodles today? She said Korean. So I picked this one to try. It’s quite unique as it’s the first round big bowls I’ve ever seen with a drain spout. Let’s begin.

On left we have the liquid soup base. On the right are the veggies.

Here’s the drain spout as seen from the top – you poke little holes where it shows.

See – they’re perforated.

Since I save the lids of all the instant noodles I eat (yeah I have a massive binder of them), I took these and put them in a covered pot of boiled water for four minutes.

I put all of the liquid soup in the bottom of the empty bowl.

Click the image to enlarge. Drained the noodles and veg and returned to the bowl and stirred. It may not be the prettiest, but it’s actually pretty tasty stuff. As far as heat goes, it’s got some. In fact my lips are still burning and I finished it a while ago. I like how it had sweet undertones. I liked the amount of veggies and I also liked seeing a couple pieces of naruto in there. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.
