Lots of vegetables and seafood.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, soft egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, barbecue pork, and spring onion. The noodles are great – flat and plentiful. The broth is rather interesting with a nice shrimp taste, a hint of spiciness and a rich taste. I found it quite fascinating – and then the garnish was good too with little shrimp balls and vegetables. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.   EAN bar code 6900873093335.

#2983: Nongshim Spicy Zha Wang Noodle – United States

#2983: Nongshim Spicy Zhawang Noodle Dish With Roasted Bean Sauce - United States

Here’s one that was sent by Exotic Noods – a company that sells subscription noodle boxes. Thanks! This one is a spicy take on Zha Wang, a popular product from Nongshim – this one’s their spicy version. Zha Wang might sound a lot like Jjajang – that’s no accident. Zha Wang is basically jjajang but with a different name. Let’s give it a go!

Something to add in at the end.

Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles are just superb – nice thickness and width. The sauce works very well and coats everything – there’s only one problem. It’s spicy, and I really don’t feel like spicy works for me in this situation. It’s like if you made spicy Lucky Charms – kind of a ‘wha – huh?’ feel to it. I really hoped for a light spicy but it was pretty strong. Give me the non spicy any day – it’s excellent – but not a fan of this. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 031146041190.

I looked around a bit and read that these big things in here are burdock tempura. Should be interesting – if you don’t know about burdock, here’s some info  from Wikipedia –

The taproot of young burdock plants can be harvested and eaten as a root vegetable. While generally out of favour in modern European cuisine, it remains popular in Asia. Arctium lappa is known as “niúbàng” (牛蒡) in Chinese, which was borrowed into Japanese as gobō, and is still eaten in both countries. In Korea burdock root is called “u-eong” (우엉) and sold as “tong u-eong” (통우엉), or “whole burdock”. Plants are cultivated for their slender roots, which can grow about one metre long and two centimetres across. Burdock root is very crisp and has a sweet, mild, and pungent flavour with a little muddy harshness that can be reduced by soaking julienned or shredded roots in water for five to ten minutes.

Immature flower stalks may also be harvested in late spring, before flowers appear; their taste resembles that of artichoke, to which the burdock is related. The stalks are thoroughly peeled, and either eaten raw, or boiled in salt water.[7] Leaves are also eaten in spring in Japan when a plant is young and leaves are soft. Some A. lappa cultivars are specialized for this purpose. A popular Japanese dish is kinpira gobō (金平牛蒡), julienned or shredded burdock root and carrot, braised with soy saucesugarmirin and/or sake, and sesame oil. Another is burdock makizushi (sushi filled with pickled burdock root; the burdock root is often artificially coloured orange to resemble a carrot).

Alrighty then – let’s dig in!

Large pieces of tempura as well as kamaboko.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion. Okay so the udon is the standard udon you’ll find in bowls like this – not chewy and broad with a bit of thickness. Very soft tooth to them. The broth was exceedingly salty, almost to the point of inedibility. What drove the edibility car off the road and into a fiery  tragedy for the mouth was the burdock. This just was so poorly executed and just did not work whatsoever. It was like eating thick potato skin that had been under a heatlamp in a gas station hot case. I mean really – even though there was a little tempura going on, a little kamaboko too, they were overshadowed by the Asian jojos of horror. Don’t get me wrong – I like burdock – a scant amount in my kimbap is alright, but this was just nasty. Disgusted and very surprised. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901990521949,901990521949,
