#2922 Wang Bulgogi Flavor Udon Korean Style Noodle

I think we found this one up in Canada but honestly don’t remmebr. It sounds good – I mean udon is alright but bulgogi – now you’re talking. Here’s a little about bulgogi from Wikipedia –

Bulgogi (/bʊlˈɡɡ/ buul-GOH-ghee;[2] from Korean bul-gogi [pul.ɡo.ɡi]), literally “fire meat”, is a gui (Korean-style grilled or roasted dish) made of thin, marinated slices of beef or pork grilled on a barbecue or on a stove-top griddle. It is also often stir-fried in a pan in home cooking. Sirloinrib eye or brisket are frequently used cuts of beef for the dish. The dish originated from the north area of the Korean Peninsula and is very popular in South Korea.[3] In fact, bulgogi is widespread in South Korea, such as at fancy restaurants and at local supermarkets selling pan-ready kits.[4]

This appears to be a South Korean product packaged for sale outside South Korea. Alright let’s give this a go!

#1340: Indomie Taste Of Asia Mi Goreng Rasa Bulgogi Ala Korea

Here’s an interesting new one – bulgogi is probably one of my most favorite foods! Bulgogi, for those of you who haven’t experienced it, is Korean barbecued beef. What they do is marinate the beef in a nice sweet sauce and then barbecue it in thin strips. What are great are Korean barbecue restaurants. You are seated at a table with a little brazier in the center.

This is a pic from a visit we had to our favorite Korean barbecue restaurant called Secret Garden. As you can see, there’s a gas burner in the middle of the table! It’s really neat – they also do pork, chicken, and hot dogs of all things! It’s really good stuff. As for all the little dishes – those are called banchan. They are all sorts of pickled things – cabbage (kimchi), radish, lotus bean pod, bean sprouts… Different restaurants have different banchan, but it’s always a lot of fun as you get to try out all sorts of tasty things. I’ve read that people really like this bulgogi-inspired mi goreng, and I must say it’s going to be interesting. Being a huge fan of the real deal, it’s going to have to be pretty good stuff. However, Indomie usually does a really good approximation of flavors, and so my hopes are high. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free. To prepare, boil 400cc water and add noodles and garnish sachet contents for 3 minutes. Put the liquid sachet and sesame seed sachet and chilli powder sachet contents into a bowl. Once the three minutes are up, drain. Add it to the bowl and combine thoroughly. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and enjoy!

The noodle block. These noodles look to be a bit broader and thicker – slightly similar to instant dry udon from Japan.

Here’s the liquid sachet.

The paste is very thick like molasses.

The vegetables sachet.

A fascinating little mix of onion and other vegetables.

Finally, a dual sachet with sesame seed garnish on the left and chilli powder on the right.

Here they are next to each other.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef sauteed with garlic, green onion and sweet onion, carrot, fried egg and BonCabe Level 10 chilli seasoning. The noodles are very different from what we’re used to from Indomie. The noodles are wide and thick and have a chew very similar to some Japanese udon bowls I’ve had before. The flavoring was interesting; it had a bulgogi-like skew to it, but then kind of skewed back towards a sweet soy based flavor. This, coupled with the noodles seemed kind of off to me. The vegetable mix was fascinating – it said it was onions and other veggies, and I figured the large flat pieces were cabbage ala kimchi, but I think it’s tofu. The sesame seeds were a nice touch. To sum it up, I think it was more interesting than enjoyable for me. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686043532.

#1278: Ottogi Ppushu Ppushu Noodle Snack Bulgogi Flavor

I did an appearance on a show called Cam Fu & Friends which was recorded at Microsoft on January 7th, 2014. Cam the host and I met because of instant noodles a while back. He did instant noodle reviews on The Noodle Freak for a while and then went on hiatus from it, telling folks to come check out my site, a real honor. So we actually met in person the first time the other day. He really was hoping I’d do a review on the show, and so I had to come up with something to review. Well, this one fit the bill; easily prepared during the taping! Further below, you can watch the video! Let’s check this one out.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, get a fist. Punch the package repeatedly. Open and remove sachet and sprinkle into the package. Shake. Eat it dry just like that!

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles are nice and crunchy and the seasoning is nice. Kind of sweet but it’s addictive stuff. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 645175560036.
