Re-Review: Nongshim Mupama Tangmyun Noodle Soup

I’ve wanted to re-review this one for a while. Just has a kind of weird name, ya’know? Here’s what the Nongshim site says about it:

Mupama Tangmyun is a hearty Noodle Soup with a separate package of freeze-dried vegetable seasonings so there is no need to add additional vegetables.

It says at the bpottom to improve it, add your favorite vegetables. But as always, I’ll give it a try as packaged and then pile some things on.

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

The big ol’ noodle block – looks tasty!

The seasoning packet.

Lots of powder.

A vegetable seasoning packet perhaps?

Interesting little tasties…

Finally, the large vegetable packet.

A lot of veggies and a nice variety too. I don’t think I’ll add more. But then again I am hungry… Hmm…

I asked for a mean angry face – looks like I got one! Top Ramen Chicken with a slice of cheese and some kamaboko for the boy.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added an egg, a slice of cheese and a little squirt of Sunchang Gochujang . The noodles are your standard Nongshim – wider than most and a nice texture. The broth is very veggie – not spicy though. The veggies were decent – and extremely plentiful. I gotta say, it’s all about vegetables in this one. Not bad. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 031146157600 – get it here.

Here’s a Mupama Tangmyun commercial.

#300: Wu-Mu Steam Spinach Ramen With Onion Flavor

Okay and here we go with review #300! It’s really getting hard to find ones I haven’t sampled and reviewed yet so if anyone would like to send me some that would be really much appreciated! So here’s #300, spinach onion time!

This pack actually contains four servings. I like how the silver ones say soup bag in English and the seasoned oil says nothing in English. I also like the fact that this packaging doesn’t tell you how much water to use. I figured draining the water off was the best bet.

Kinda green going on – spinach’ll do that!

Seasoning powder and seasoned oil.

The noodles are broad and the perfect texture. The seasonings are exactly what they purport to be and brilliantly done. Adding egg and ginger compliments the dish quite nice, and the shallot just makes sense. Altogether, I think this goes up there in the hallowed ranks of the almighty five stars. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

To make things more awesome, here’s the commercial for this product! It’s the one all the way on the left.

Here’s another.
