#2873: Samyang Foods Jjajang Buldak Bokkeummyun 짜장불닭볶음면

Alright, folks! Today I bring you the brand new Samyang Foods Jjajang Buldak Bokkeummyun. 1,920 SHU is the heat level. But wait – what’s jjajang? Let’s find out with some info from Wikipedia!

Jajangmyeon (자장면) or jjajangmyeon (짜장면) is a Korean Chinese noodle dish topped with a thick sauce made of chunjang, diced pork and vegetables.[1] A variant of the dish uses seafood.

Jajangmyeon dates back to 1905, when it first appeared in Gonghwachun (공화춘共和春), a restaurant in Incheon Chinatown run by an immigrant from the Shandong Province of China. The restaurant is now the Jjajangmyeon Museum.

Although the name jajangmyeon is cognate with the Chinese dish zhájiàngmiàn (炸酱面), Korean jajangmyeon differs in many ways. Yong Chen, an associate history professor at the University of California, Irvine, argued that although the dish “began as the Northern Chinese noodle-and-ground pork dish zhájiàngmiàn, it is thoroughly Korean.”[2]

Do I detect a little national pride in the end there? Let’s pop this open and give it a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles come out very well – thick and chewy. They have a great ramyun gauge and good mouthfeel.

Well this one looks to be extremely spicy. Samyang Foods sent some instructions along as everything on the back of these packages are in Korean. Well, they also added a little advice:

If it is too spicy for you to finish, you’d better add a soft-fried egg, vegetables or some chicken 🙂 My fingers are crossed for you!

Wow – I think I’ve got my work cut out for me on this one! Spicy chicken stir noodles… Let’s do it!

The back of the package (click to enlarge). Notice the little grumpy chicken talking about SHU. SHU are Scoville Heat Units, a way to rate the degree of spiciness. The scornful fowl is warning us about this being 4,404 SHU. I’ve found a variety in the past that has 5,930 SHU – that was really hot! Curious how I’ll do with this one…

The noodle block.

The liquid packet.

Oh dude. It kind of looks like fire with smoke coming up from it, doesn’t it? Gave a taste with a toothpick – it’s tasty and then super hot! Being a stir noodle, this will be undiluted by water.

A black and white packet. Hot pepper flake, perhaps?

Looks like some seaweed and sesame seeds.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken seasoned with adobo and Cavender’s Greek seasoning, sweet onion, fried egg and green onions. As I always do in my reviews, I sampled the product before adding all my own garnishes. The noodles are thick and chewy. The flavoring is pretty good – extreme spiciness! Has a nice kind of fried chicken taste. The sesame and seaweed ass a nice little finish. If you don’t like spicy foods, stay away! If you do, this will satisfy! Eyes watering and nose running! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8801073110502.
