#2483: Paldo Bul Jjamppong Spicy Seafood Noodle Soup

#2483: Paldo Bul Jjamppong - South Korea - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles - ramyun - spicy seafood

I’m pretty sure I found this one at HMart a few months back but to be honest I can’t remember. This one is a fancy variety of jjamppong. Here’s a little something from Wikipedia –

Jjamppong (짬뽕) is a Korean spicy noodle soup part of Korean Chinese cuisine. Its broth is flavoured with seafood, garlic and gochugaru (red pepper powder).[1] It contains assorted vegetables such as onions, bell peppers and Cloud ear fungus, and the noodles are made from wheat flour.[2]

Usually these have a nice seafood taste and I toss a ton of seafood in there. Let’s see if I like the bowl version better than the pack.

Seasoned oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added carved squid, 36-44ct shrimp, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and Busan fishcake. The noodles had a very good chew to them. Indeed they are the more flat and broad ones that the market has favored as of late. The broth is excellent. I really love the taste – like grilled seafood. I found the pack versiuon needing salt but this one was just perfect. Also a nice hit of oiliness and spiciness. Excellent! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8809296883340.

Spicy oil!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, carved squid, Busan fishcake and shrimp. The noodles are big thick and great – very nice! The broth has a very good taste to it but seems to be missing the saltiness perhaps? I really like it, but something seems missing; maybe that makes it gourmet? Unsure. Vegetable bits hydrated very well. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8809296883180.

New Samples From South Korea’s Paldo Food

First, I want to send a special thank you to Yongmin Park for sending me product samples! See, every year I do the Top Ten South Korean Instant Noodles list and each year it’s starting to seem like I get fewer and fewer products to try from South Korea. People have been getting grumpy about the list too – see, it’s only for products made IN South Korea, not elsewhere. Let’s have a look inside and see what awaits!

New premium varieties – jjamppong and jjajang (click to enlarge).

Budae Jigae (click to enlarge) – if you look at the enlargement, you can see that there are very interesting things on the package – beans, macaroni, sausages… Budae Jigae was developed after the Korean War – lots of US military rations were left for the people and they adapted them into a special stew/soup!

Finally, Bibimmyun – IN A BOWL (click to enlarge)!!! I’ve been trying to get my hands on this for a VERY long time! Thanks again Yongmin Park – you rock!
