#2291: Samyang Foods Buldak Bokkummyun Cheese Flavor (Orange Bowl)

Okay so most of your should be familiar with the popular ‘fiore noodle’ challenge. That’s where you take a bowl of Samyang Foods Buldak Bokkummyun (spicy fried chicken flavor) instrant noodles and scarf ‘e,m down in one sitting really quick. If you don’t know about this, just go to YouTube and type in fire noodle challenge – you’ll get a ton of videos. Nobody’s ever challenged me to do this; kind of bummed. Anyways, this is a new variety – I think there will be three of these spin offs, but right now we have cheese. Let’s see is the cheese chills this fiery noodle out or if it still has the burn of burns.

Poke holes in the lid (through the little triangles). Use them to drain off excess water. Add in liquid sachet contents and stir well. Sprinkle try powder on top and enjoy!

Cheesy!

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles hydrated very well – awesome ramyun. The taste is like licking the sun; I know it’s cheese because it says it’s cheese and I poured cheese powder on top, but it just tastes like an ultra spicy and sweet kind of thing. For fans of the David Lynch film ‘Dune,’ you will understand when I say heat upon heat upon heat… THE PAIN! Nice quality, serious business. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801073210967.

#1347: Paldo Bulnak Bokkummyun Spicy Fried Octopus Ramyun

Today I’m trying something really interesting. This is Paldo’s new spicy octopus ramyun! I thought I couldn’t make this stuff without adding some octopus, but I’d never cooked it before and was a little reserved and slightly nervous. Octopus? Hey, why not! I went to the Korean grocery and picked some up. It was a bit of a surprise how many different kinds of packaged octopus there are. I settled on frozen baby octopus. Let’s see how it turns out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure if it contains seafood or not. To prepare, add noodles and vegetables sachet to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 and a half minutes. Drain. stir in the remaining sauce sachet, return to heat for 30 seconds. Enjoy!

Looks to be mostly green onion.

The sauce sachet.

Wow – this stuff is thick. It kind of looks like barbecue sauce, but it sure doesn’t smell like it! It has a really spicy scent – and I mean spicy!

Here’s my cooked octopus! I did a bit of research and found that octopus is cooked in an interesting way. You take the whole thing and a pot of boiling water and dip it in for 3 seconds, take it out and repeat a few times. This ‘tempers’ the flesh – each dip causes the tentacles to curl a bit more, and I think the idea is that by giving is a little time for it to get used to the heat rather than just dropping it in, it will end up more tender. After the dipping, just drop it in, cover and cook for 20 minutes. Then, turn off the heat and let it sit in the water for another 20 minutes. It’s got a kind of rubbery consistency, more so than squid. Interesting stuff!

Tentacle!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green onion, sweet onion and baby octopus. The noodles have a very nice gauge and chew; it’s ramyun and so very hearty. The sauce is hot. Uber hot! This is definitely not for the faint of heart and really means it! The veggies were very good and complimented the dish. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8809296882183.

People are challenging eachother to eat a bowl of this stuff as fast as they can on Youtube – rad!

South Korean Samples From Samyang Foods!

Recently I heard about this recipe using Samyang Foods Budalk Bokkumyeon (Hot fried chicken flavor ramyun). I only have one of the bowls so I needed at least onhe more so I could do a regular review as well as try the recipe. I asked a friend at Samyang Foods if they could possibly send some more and I got a yes! Today this box arrived.
