#2650: Paldo Flaming Hot Savoury Cheese Noodle

#2650: Paldo Flaming Hot Savoury Cheese Noodle - South Korea - The Ramen Rater - ramyun

Well, the little cheese guy has gone from a place of meekness to one of anger. Let me show you.

#2650: Paldo Flaming Hot Savoury Cheese Noodle - South Korea - The Ramen Rater - ramyun

As you can see, the original cheese guy was terrified and way too easy going. This guy now has full confidence and is holding a pepper like a weapon. He’s got a lot of confidence. Confidence that he’s going to jack up your day.

The original was on my top ten annual list a few years back – excellent stuff – especially with some Swiss cheese, which in the hot broth becomes sloppy and gloppy and dare I say yummy (see yesterday’s review for my diatribe on that term).

I’ve had this new spicy version once. It was the night that I worked with my son Andy on putting together a Nanoblock set. He had some chicken tanmen and I tried this one. I love cheese ramyun and loading it high with cheese and Busan fishcake. Well, it was freakishly spicy and today I’m going to be attempting it straight, no chaser. This is what they like to call mukbang – when you let everyone watch you eat something on YouTube; let them see the sweat of your brow, hear the slurping and generally make yourself naked for people to see you doing a regular bodily function known as eating. I think I should be able to conquer it, however, I think I noticed that ones with soup have a different mean attitude than the ones without. Let’s check out this new variety and see how spicy it is.

Lots of little bits.

Finished (click to enlarge). I definitely love the ramyun in this one – nice and thick with a good chew. The broth has a very strong heat and a good savory flavor to it from the cheese. I expected hotter as my last time trying this was almost unbearable, however, that was just for dinner and I think I used a lot less water, therefore less dilution of the seasoning. Nonetheless, it’s pretty damn hot. I love the original version and I think the spiciness detracts from what I enjoyed about it honestly. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 648436101221.

Nowadays, soon as there’s a knock at the door my son Miles is racing for the door. It’s really funny actually – he wants to steal the box and try to get it open as soon as possible to see what’s inside!  I wasn’t expecting this one from Paldo – unexpected but definitely appreciated! Let’s see what’s inside!

Hey she likes it!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed beef with garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce and Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Pepper and a mix of shredded Colby and Jack cheese. The noodles came out well enough – standard nice thick ramyun gauge and a good chewiness. The cheese? Coats well and turns everything into a cheese flavored tangle. Good stuff! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#1414: Paldo Cheese Ramyun (US Version)

Hey look – it’s the return of the happy little cheese guy with the sign! He looks so happy that he will be eaten – after having been reduced to a powder mix! I wonder how he would look if he really knew he would be eaten?

Well, sorry dude, but your request is going to go unheeded today. Besides, you’re a cheese; cheese is meant to be eaten. Let’s have a look at this one from South Korea, made for the US market!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add noodles, green and red sachets to 550cc boiling water for 3 minutes. Stir in cheese powder sachet contents and enjoy!

Lots of cheese powder!

 Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, Colby Jack cheese and sukiyaki beef. The noodles are Paldo’s regular excellent fare – thick, chewy and fun to chew. The broth is a split of your regular spicy beef ramyun broth and a cheese powder that sets it all off nicely! Cheese makes it so comfort-food oriented which was perfect. The veggie hydrate just fine. This is identical to the one on my top ten list for 2014 – delightful! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 648436100934.
