#967: Meet The Manufacturer: Annie Chun’s Soup Bowl Korean Kimchi

Here’s something interesting – a kimchi fresh udon bowl made in the US! Let’s give it a look!

Here’s detail from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge).

Under the cardboard we find this little plastic box. Not at all flimsy either.

Inside, we find a few things. First, a pack or fresh udon.

Next, a packet of liquid soup base.

A thick liquid.

My favorite! I just love packets full of 1.2.8.6.D! I wonder what this number means…

Actually, I do love these! This is a seasoning block. Basically its freeze dried seasoning and veggies in a nice little square. They spring back to life and are really great from the ones I’ve had so far.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, odeng (Korean fish cake) and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are very good – thick fresh udon. The broth delivers the kimchi flavor very nicely; spicy and tangy. The seasoning block gives some nice kimchi too. This is an awesome kimchi udon with great authentic flavor  – 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 765667100400 – get it here.

For you gluten free folks, here’s something about a different Annie cCun’s product. Looks like these guys have done a series of these videos with the cellphone ringtone music!

#510: Snapdragon Pan-Asian Cuisine Korean Kimchi Rice Noodle Soup

Here’s the second of four of these I got at the new Bellevue Uwajimaya last month.

Two packets – yup again it looks like the Koka seasoning packet! The seasoning has a powder compartment as well as an oil compartment. the green packet is veggies.

Nice ingredients all sitting in anticipation of boiling water.

Click image to enlarge. Beautiful. Very nice level of heat first off. The rice noodles are not of great backbone but are very tasty. The broth is slightly thick and the veggies are abundant. The broth has an oil slick on top reminiscent of MAMA brand stuff. Very lovely color and finish. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here.
