#2067: Samyang Foods Fresh Jjajang

There have been some jjajangmyun varieties sweeping sout Korea lately – very very popular. Here’s one of them! Jjajang is a black bean sauce and myun means noodle in Korean. Got it? Good! Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat. to prepare, add noodles and vegetables to 600ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Drain. Add in contents of powder and oil sachets. Stir and enjoy!

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles in this one are different from the standard Samyang Foods ones. they’re thicker and wider. The flavor is really great – a nice and thick jjajang sauce coats everything in its entirety. Despite it being a sauce coming from a dry powder, this stuff is really extremely good. The veggies were excellent as well, however the peas didn’t hydrate extremely well and after all the time they had boiling, I was a bit surprised by this. Nonetheless, an excellent jjangmyun. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8801073113176.

Here’s another interesting one – Jjajangmen. The last time I reviewed this, I had mixed it in like it mentions on the back. This time, I’m going to put it on top like in the picture!

Looks like a big block of thick noodles.

A big packet of sauce. This isn’t a soup base – it’s a sauce.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Noodles are very chewy and the sauce is awesome; it seems like it’s beef laden but there’s no beef here. A very hearty and tasty meal! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 648436100590 .
