#1766: Paldo Bulnak Bokeummyun King Noodle

I recently did the Top Ten Spiciest list and the not-so-distant cousin of this one (basically the pack version) was in the second place position. I think this one was definitely violently hot and a good choice for the Fire Noodle Challenge that lots of people do on YouTube. Anyways, let’s see what we have in the bowl and maybe I’ll have to give this Fire Noodle Challenge a shot.

Here’s the distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge).

Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains small octopus and pork. To prepare, add in contents of white sachet and boiling water to fill line. Cover and steep for 3 minutes. Poke holes in spots on lid and use to drain. Add in contents of liquid sachet and stir. Enjoy!

The liquid sachet.

Has a violently spicy scent.

The vegetables sachet.

A nice little mix.

Finished (click image to enlarge).The noodles are thick and have a great ramyun gauge and texture. Good stuff as always from Paldo. The flavor is like putting an ashed over charcoal briquet in your mouth – it’s extremely spicy. It’s also sweet as well, but the heat sets in and lingers really long. The vegetable bits worked great. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8809296882213.

Re-Review: Paldo Lobster Taste King Noodle

Last night, Obama got re-elected as the President, and here in Washington state, same-sex marriage was approved – as was the recreational use of marijuana. Quite an evening! Anyways, was fun watching the political process wind up and come to a close for this cycle. Now, on to the urgent task of noodle reviewing!  The last time I reviewed this one was back in February of ’11 and was #287 (link). I forgot how awesome the picture on this one – I love how it says ‘serving suggestion.’ It makes me think that this is one enormous king of the lobsters that wants you to serve it these self-flavored noodles! Roarrr!!! On a side note, if you look at the lower right hand side of the cup, you can see it says “Chitosan Oligosaccaride 2 mg.” What the heck is that?!?! What I got out of this Wikipedia article is that this is something that comes from the exoskeletons of crustaceans. It got me thinking – Chitosan… ChitoSlim? I remember commercials for ChitoSlim, a weight lossupplement. I found it and lo and behold it contains 1000 mg of Chitosan. I figure it’s basically like a super-fiber. Anyways, let’s continue.

The side panels (click to enlarge). Enjoy them – this took awhile!

The noodle block.

The seasoning packet.

Whoa – that’s a lot of red powder! Spicy red powder!

Here’s just a few bits from the mix at the bottom of the cup. Kamaboko and seaweed.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onions, two scrambled eggs with Tabasco Jalapeno sauce and topped with processed cheese and a little Krazy Mixed Up Salt, Texas Pete hot sauce and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are nice – not mushy, but they kind of come together when chewed. Kind of hard to explain; not a negative either. The broth is nice – tasty and a little spicy. The little bit of veggies and kamaboko were good too. I liked it! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 648436100279 – get it here.
