#1194: Paldo Namja Ramyun King Cup (US Version)

Here it is! Now you can get a big cup of Namja here in the states! I reviewed the South Korean Namja King Cup before, and there are differences between the two. If you’re wondering, Namja means ‘men’s’ or ‘guy’s’ – still wondering if they will make a ramyun for the ladies. Let’s check this new one out.

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains beef.

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

The reddish powder has a strong spicy garlic scent.

A little bit of the solid ingredients from the bottom of the cup.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baby Nappa kimchi, sauteed sweet onion and beef, green onions and egg. The noodles came out very nicely – not spongy or anything. They’re nice and firm with a good texture. The broth has a nice garlic and spicy flavor to it which is very good. The veggie bits were far and few between. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 468636100798.

Namja Ramyun has one of the funniest TV spots out there – check it out.

#932: Paldo Namja Ramen

It’s the day after Thanksgiving and I thought this would be nice to have. I’ve reviewed the Korean version in the past – this is the version for sale in the US.

Back of the package (click image to enlarge). From the ingredients, you can see the beef, chicken and garlic components.

The noodle block.

Seasoning powder packet.

Ahhh look at all of the powder – should be hot’n’spicy!

Veggie packet.

A nice little melange.

Finished (click image to enlarge).  Added sweet onion, some processed cheese, fresh Thanksgiving turkey, French’s French Fried Onions, a hard boiled egg and Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles are great – nice and plump and plentiful. The broth has a great flavor – a strong spiciness too. Excellent red broth! The veggies are very nice too – good amount of garlic in there! Great stuff! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 648436100729 – get it here.

Here’s the commercial for Namja Ramyun

Hey sweet – I live just a couple minutes south of Lynwood!

We want to take this flight someday…
