#785: Sarimi Isi 2 Rasa Soto

Here’s another one sent by my friend in Indonesia! Soto I’ve had before has had a very nice lime flavor to it I very much enjoyed. Curious if this one will be the same. Let’s see!

The back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

A piece of the noodle block.

Dry seasonings: base on the left and chili powder on the right.

Base with chili powder atop.

Seasoned oil.

Dark and a little murky!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a hard-boiled egg, some veggies, some roasted chicken, a little Ajishima Kimchi furikake, some kizami shoga (pickled ginger), some Melinda’s Garlic Habanero hot sauce and a pinch of Krazy Mixed Up Salt. Okay so the noodles were a little banged up during the voyage from Indonesia, but they’re still pretty good – Fluffy noodles. The broth has that nice salty and tasty lime taste that I’ve found in other Soto varieties. Good stuff! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686017717 .

This looks amazing

#780: Ottogi Jin Ramen (Mild) (Korean Version)

Here’s one that was sent to me by Moon Hee Wi, the journalist who wrote the article in the JoongAng Ilbo a couple weeks ago! Thanks! Let’s give it a try!

The back of the package (click image to enlarge).

This is a pretty big rectangular noodle block!

Seasoning powder?

Nice reddish color.

The vegetable packet.

Looks like an okay amount.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added an egg, a slice of processed cheese, some onions and some kimchi. The noodles are great – not too chewy and loads of them. The broth is a typical fiery hot Korean style ramyun broth – without the fire. The veggies hydrated decently and were a little different than others – a little chewier. Good stuff! Definitely a must for someone who’s scared of the heat of Korean ramyun. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8801045520117 – get the US version here.

Here’s a commercial for Jin Ramen.

I definitely want to review this – looks awesome!

#775: JML Instant Noodle Seafood Flavour

Hey look – another big JM cup! This one’s from Michelle L. of Mew York, NY. Thanks again! Seafood, huh? Sounds good.

Side panels (click image to enlarge).

It put up a small fight, but I got it out of there.

Powder seasonging packet.

This stuff is very fine grained; to the point that it almost looked like a fine vapor as I got the last tiny smidges into this cup.

Seasoned oil!

Kind of looks like cream of mushroom – kind of like the stuff from the JML Artificial Mushroom Chicken one I did recently. This one has a much better bouquet though.

The veggie packet.

Looks kind of light on the veggies. I guess we’ll see how they effect the flavor.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some veggies, some odeng, Tabasco Buffalo Style hot sauce and some Ajishima Salmon furikake. The noodles are, well, lackluster. They don’t have much character – kind of spongy and boring. The broth has that same distinct aftertaste of the mushroom chicken JML I had recently, although a bit less so. It’s not amazing stuff, although now with additions it’ll be a nice meal. By itself, 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 6921555571767 .

#621: Ottogi Jin Ramen (Hot) Asian Style Instant Noodle Big Bowl

You like it hot? This stuff is good and it delivers some decent heat too. I’ve had the cup, the pack and now, the big bowl. Wonder if there’s a regular sized bowl? Hmm…

Click image to enlarge. The directions and other info panels off the sideand top of the bowl.

The single packet stands alone in all of it’s red fury.

The veggies were already in the bowl. All we need now is boiling water.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a couple fried eggs and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles were good – standard Ottogi style. They weren’t really chewy per se but they stood their ground. The broth was quite spicy, as promised. The veggies plumped up nicely. All around hot and spicy fun time. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. Haven’t seen these big ones around, but you can get the cups here and the packages here.

Here’s a commercial for it.

This lady is into a couple of my most often used seasonings – kind of a review.

#395: Ottogi Jin Ramen (Mild) Asian Style Instant Noodle Cup

I thought this looked interesting. I don’t usually see any kind of ‘mild’ flavors coming out of Korea, but here you see one. Here we go!

One single packet.

Nice looking veggies and seasoning…

Click image to enlarge. Nice and tasty – not really any heat (mild I said mild), which is kind of a bummer but not unexpected here. The noodles were decent, the veggies got big and the broth was tasty. Nice cup of noodles. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here.

#323: Ottogi Jin Ramen (Hot) Asian Taste Instant Noodle Cup

I like how the lid has the instructions in the little pull up tab!

So here’s some Korean cup noodles from Ottogi. Haven’t had any Ottogi stuff in a while so this should be nice.

One packet of powder seasoning.

Seasoning on left, veggies on right – the veggies were in the cup already.

Click image to enlarge. Added one egg. So this was pretty good. The noodles were chewy – very chewy. The veggies were nice and the broth had a light spiciness to it. Yum! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. Find it here.

Re-Review: Ottogi Asian Style Instant Noodle Jin Ramen ( Hot )

So thought it would be nice to spice it up a bit and modify some Korean noodles for breakfast. So I picked the basis to be the Ottogi Jin Ramen.

Two packets – powder and veggies.

Veggies and powder – a huge amount of powder!!!

Here’s the ramen finished product unadulterated. Click image to enlarge.

And here it is with fried eggs! I really liked it with the eggs – thought it’d be nice for a change. The noodles were good, broth was good but a little simple. The runny yolk on an egg flavored it up nicely though. I’m going to give it 3.5 out of 5.0 – egg bumped it up! Try it! Get it here.

#18: Ottogi Jin Ramen Hot Taste Oriental Style Noodle


Ottogi: Jin Ramen – Hot Taste
Stars: ***
Notes:This is quite good – the noodles are pretty garden variety, but there’s a nice quantity of them. I made the noodles as per the instructions on the package, but I drained a good portion of the water off before putting them in my bowl, adding the hot flavor soup base and the veggies. I put a single fried egg on top and voila! A good, robust and filling bowl of ramen. Tasty stuff! Get it here.
