#1563: Nongshim Shin Ramyun Noodle Soup (New Edition)

Before you go crazy and say ‘what you’ve never reviewed Shin Ramyun before,’ just listen for a second. So this is the new packaging they rolled out recently. I thought it was worth as whole new review as they’be had the old packaging on this one for eons and eons.

Here is the old packaging. As you can see, the new one’s very red. Red and angry! Rrawr! Let’s get cooking!

 Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add noodle block and contents of sachets to 550ml boiling water and cook 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Enjoy!

Smells spicy!

The vegetables sachet.

Looks like green onion, mushroom and a little pepper possibly.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef and sweet onion sauteed in soy sauce and some sliced spring onion. The noodles are thick and luxuriant as well as plentiful. Good chew. The broth has a nice kind of beef flavor with a nice heat to it that is accessible to many. The vegetables are a nice touch as well. I don’t know if it’s different from the old packaged version, but I sure enjoyed it today. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 031146150601.

 This is one seriously ubiquitous product – however if you can’t find it, your can get it here.

Re-Review: Meet The Manufacturer: Nongshim Shin Ramyun Noodle Soup

It’s been a heck of a long time since I had one of these – over three years! Shin Ramyun is Nongshim’s most well known product – let’s see how it goes now, after trying over 600 varieties since I last tried it!

Here’s what makes Shin Ramyun spicy: the seasoning packet!

A lot of powdered seasoning. Had a little taste – yep – spicy!

Here’s the veggie packet.

Here’s a nice little cup of veggies.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added some beef lunch meat, some onions, a veggie mix of snap peas, green bell pepper, Fresno peppers, water chestnut and broccoli, a slice of cheese, a shake of Ajishima Kimchi Furikake, and a little Tabasco Buffalo Style hot sauce. First, the noodles: they’re good – they soak up the flavor of the broth nicely and have a nice consistency. Not too firm, not too thin. Very good. The broth: tasty and spicy. I will say I don’t think it’s as hot as the Jinjja Jinjja, but it’s got quite a nice kick to it. The veggies weren’t bad, but more would have been nice. Basing my rating on just the noodles and broth, I give them 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. If I were to rate with everything I added, it would definitely be higher. Good bowl of noodles!
