#3319: Peyoung Gekikara MAX END Yakisoba – Japan

#3400: Peyoung Gekikara MAX END Yakisoba - Japan

I figured I needed something scary for this pairing of Halloween varieties and so here’s something scary. I have no clue how truly spicy this one might be. I’m hoping it’s not going to kill my gut. This will have not only the cooking video at the bottom but the mukbang where I scarf the whole thing down if I can. Well, let’s see if I can handle it.

Detail of the outer wraps (click to enlarge). Contains meat. T oprepare, add boiling water to fill line along with clear sachet contents. Cover and let steep 3 minutes. Drain. Add in liquid sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A wet sachet.

A dry sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added plastic eyeballs. The noodles are thin with a bit of a crumble. Not my favorite. The sauce was definitely an extract heat and left me feeling like they just went for that to the exclusion of much else. Highly disappointing flavor-wise. The heat level was decently intense, but nothing the seasoned hothead can’t handle. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902885005247.

#3240: Samyang Foods Hek Buldak Bokkeummyun Mini - South Korea

This is a new one – a smaller Buldak Bokkeummyun! However it packs a big punch. This one’s clocking in at 12,000SHU, the highest heat level to date in the range. This is to celebrate the 7th anniversary of Buldak Bokkeummyun – happy birthday! What’s cool too is that the character Hochi’s birthday is the same as my wife’s! I thought hey – I should put this out on her birthday! Let’s give it a try.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are great – nice, thick, and chewy. Sauce is sweet, salty and really hot! I mean really hot. I’ve had all of these ‘fire noodles’ that they’ve ome out with so I’m used to the eat and have had exponentially hotter tings, but if you aren’t used to it, this will knock you on your keester. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#2942: Paldo Teumsae Cheddar Cheese Ramyun

#2942: Paldo Teumsae Cheddar Cheese Ramyun

One of my favorite varieties has been Paldo’s Cheese Noodle – that’s a really tasty one. Well, Teumsae is one of their spiciest varieties and they mashed it up with cheese. I really want to get samples of the new ultra spicy Teumsae variety, but I can’t find it anywhere from nobody… At this point, I’m wondering if it even was produced! But it had to be… Come on. It’s hanging out somewhere! Anyways, cheese is good. It’s time to do a mukbang, so check out the video at the bottom of this review.. Let’s give this one a try!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it’s meat free or not – check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block and sachet contents (except cheese powder sachet)  to 550ml boiling water and cook 3 1/2 minutes Finally, stir and sprinkle cheddar cheese powder on top and enjoy!

Finished (click to enlarge). Love the noodles – thick and chewy with that nice thin kinda gooey outermost layer. The broth was pretty good – definitely not the punch of Teumsae, that’s for sure. I know the cheese took off some of the sting, but it honestly seemed more like a spicy ramyun. The included vegetables were of good quality. Tasty with a slightly bitter back and an easy one for a spicy foods buff. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8809296884200.

#2682: JML Instant Noodle Artificial Spicy Hot Beef Flavour

Re-Review: JML Instant Noodle Artificial Spicy Hot Beef Flavour

I’ve been doing a lot of spicy noodle videos on YouTube recently. There’s a particular one that I tried and just couldn’t handle. The main reason for this is that first off, it’s ultra spicy. The second was that I attempted it when I was sick with the flu. I mean hey – it was from Japan and I thought I should be able to handle it; never run into any spicy noodle from Japan that I found too spicy to eat.

I remember having this one a few years back and in the interest of ‘training’ for this one, I thought it deserved a re-review. It was on my inaugural to ten spicy list I think, so that’s saying something. As years went by, hotter ones pushed it off. You’ll notice on the package’s lower right – see the chilli peppers and the little peppercorns? Spicy hot beef has both aspects to fire it up. Let’s give this one another look. I’ll be doing a video on YouTube for this one as well. I’ve decided this is worthy of a new number as far as reviews go. I mean, this is going to be interesting and all…

Some vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, and beef. The noodles were pretty good – a slight bit on the soggy side. The broth has a nice combination of chilli pepper and Sichuan pepper spiciness which works well together. The broth also has a good oiliness and the vegetables hydrated well. Beef taste? Yep – definitely tastes like a spicy beef broth. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 6921555595664.

#2631: Isoyama Shoji 18禁カレーラーメン (Age 18 Restricted La-Men Curry Taste)

#2631: 18禁カレーラーメン (Age 18 Restricted La-Men Curry Taste) - Japan - The Ramen Rater

First thing, I want to thank Jay H. from Taiwan for sending this 18禁カレーラーメン over to me. He checked out the Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition and thought I should give this a try.

I’ve seen this quite a few times online but never have seen it available, nor have I really seen a lot of people talking about it. I find it very intriguing and interesting; it’s a spicy noodle from Japan, and usually, those don’t tend to be extremely spicy from what I’ve seen and tried.

Well, today I have the flu. For some reason, maybe like one of those hallucinatory fever dreams playing in the back of my head while it feels as though it’s going to explode from congestion, squirting eye balls and constant sneezing, I thought this would be a great day to give this a shot. Well, I mean curry noodles sounded good and I kind of discarded the concept of them being very spicy as I’ve never had one from Japan that’s really had any burn. At the bottom is a video of me attempting to eat this while I had the flu. Watch that and then watch my rematch video here! Let’s have a look at 18禁カレーラーメン.

18禁カレーラーメン (Age 18 Restricted La-Men Curry Taste) – Japan

#2631: 18禁カレーラーメン (Age 18 Restricted La-Men Curry Taste) - Japan - The Ramen Rater

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Might contain meat but unsure. To prepare, add noodle block to 700ml boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Add in powder base. Finally, stir and enjoy!

Had to use a bigger bowl for this stuff. A slightly granular mixture here.

#2631: 18禁カレーラーメン (Age 18 Restricted La-Men Curry Taste) - Japan - The Ramen Rater

Finished (click to enlarge). I was kind of taken aback at the sheer amount of water required for this one – 700ml is a lot. However, the noodle block accommodated and we see here a lot of plump noodles. They didn’t come out poorly either – they’re pretty decent. Now for the broth. The broth was something that my flu symptoms didn’t know how to combat. I had a bit of the noodle, then some broth and after about ten seconds, I felt this pain in my gut; like the I’m either going to vomit or shit my pants kind of gut pain. I had taken some cough syrup about a half hour before, too. Was trying these while sick a good idea? Was this a bad batch of noodles? A big yes to the first and a definite no to the second. I would have thought that if anything the spiciness would have been downplayed a bit since my tastebuds are all jacked up, but I have a feeling it amplified the spicy effect. I think the gut pain was the stuff hitting a gut full of medication and post nasal drippings. Luckily, Jay is going to send another pack of these and I will definitely try again once I’m feeling better. One thing I’ll say – this is a lot of noodles and broth and exceedingly spicy as well. After the rematch, I have fcome to a conclusion. This is the spiciest instant noodle I’ve ever had. It burned bad, twsited my gut up, laid waste to my soul. It makes every spicy variety I’ve had thus far taste like sugar water. Not only that, I think it tastes horrible. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars. . 18禁カレーラーメン, you beat my sick self down. JAN bar code 4937211002331.

The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

NOTE – THERE IS A NEW TOP TEN SPICY LIST FOR 2018 – HERE IT IS

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

It’s that time of year again! Actually, this is the first time the list is coming out in July although at the tail end of July. I usually have the lists come out on the Monday closest to the date it came out the prior year. So this list is a compilation of absolutely hottest and spiciest varieties I’ve had out of the 2,500+ varieties I’ve tried thus far. Something you think belongs on this spiciest of lists? Let me know – I’ll give it a try. Let’s get started!

Note – on the day of posting I remember that there was one variety that should be in this list. I’ve given it an ‘honorable mention’ at the bottom, so don’t forget to give that a look. It will most certainly appear in next year’s list in a position on the list as it is quite spicy and truly should get it’s little place in The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time. My apologies.

#10: MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle – Malaysia

Spiciest #10: MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle – Malaysia - The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles 2017 Edition

MyKuali’s new recipe added a big punch of heat to their already amazing and groundbreaking Penang White Curry Noodle. Thick almost saucelike broth fires up the palate and includes a generous amount of garlic this time. Original review

#9: Maggi Hot Heads Green Chilli Noodles – India

Spiciest #9: Maggi Hot Heads Green Chilli Noodles - India - The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

One of the most recent ones I’ve tried. I was on the fence about including it to be honest, however it definitely does belong. A strong spiciness from a serious green chilli flavor. Definitely the hottest variety I’ve tried from India. Original review

#8: CarJEN Hot & Spicy Dry Curry With Chives Soup – Malaysia

Spiciest #8: CarJEN Hot & Spicy Dry Curry With Chives Soup - Malaysia The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

This is one not only spicy but unique. Not only does it have a brothless noodle, it has a sachet you mix with boiling water to make a soup that is served alongside. I’ve seen this done multiple times in Taiwanese variants but never from Malaysia – good show! Original review

#7: Mi E-Zee Perisa Kari Mi Segera – Malaysia

Spiciest #7: Mi E-Zee Perisa Kari Mi Segera – Malaysia - The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

After mentioning I thought it could be improved by making it spicier, they did. They include a sachet of very hot chilli pepper flake – a pretty decently sized one that if you use, you will definitely be feeling the burn. Original review

#6: Samyang Foods Mala Buldak Bokkeummyun – South Korea

Spiciest #6: Samyang Foods Mala Buldak Bokkeummyun - South Korea - The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

The newest variety of the Buldak Bokkeummyun series, this one features Sichuan pepper. It provides a kind of buzzing, numbing effect which is different. Lots of good garnish such as well sized mushroom pieces in here. Original review

#5: Paldo Teumsae Ramyun – South Korea

Spiciest #5: Paldo Teumsae Ramyun – South Korea - The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

On the list for four years now! Another South Korean ramyun with serious kick to it. This isn’t to be trifled with!  Teumsae has restaurants in South Korea which serve up some seriously spicy fare. I really like the text underneath the word Teumsae which reads, ‘Flavor. Culture. Human’ Original review here

#4: Paldo Bulnak Bokkummyun Spicy Fried Octopus Ramyun – South Korea

Spiciest #4: Paldo Bulnak Bokkummyun Spicy Fried Octopus Ramyun – South Korea - The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

After many, many people complaining that I had the order hot and that this should be behind the #3, I decided to give it another try. You were right – totally concede that. However, this is definitely a fiery hot plate of noodles with a nice flavor. Original review

#3: Samyang Foods Buldak Bokkeummyeon – South Korea

Spiciest #3: Samyang Foods Buldak Bokkeummyeon – South Korea - The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

The bowl version of this is what is commonly used in the Fire Noodle Challenge. This stuff will really clean your clock – the initial taste is very sweet and savory and then bam. Indeed a crescendo of flame hits you palate like sucking on a charcoal briquet. Original review

#2: emart Dare You! Habanero Ramyun – South Korea

Spiciest #2: emart Dare You! Habanero Ramyun – South Korea - The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

The current packaging for this one has changed yet again. So now it features the name ‘Super Junior’ which is a reference to a Korean pop music act. Definitely need to try that – but at this point, this is definitely worth of the second spot. The broth is violently spicy – coats your tongue is heat and fire. Original review

#1: Samyang Foods 2x Spicy Hek Buldak Bokkeummyun – South Korea

Spiciest #1: Samyang Foods 2x Spicy Hek Buldak Bokkeummyun - South Korea - The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition 2017 Edition

There is no doubt in my mind that there’s nothing hotter than this one out there – as far as they go, this is the spiciest of the spiciest – at least that I’ve tried. This is a real burner and definitely takes my breath away. Therefore, I would say that if you aren’t comfortable with spicy foods, this will grab you, throw you on the ground and have it’s way with you. Consider this a warning in big red capital letters!! The heat will linger long after the plate is clean – if you can get that far! Original review

Honorable Mention – Paldo Volcano Curry Kkokkomyun – South Korea

Spiciest Honorable Mention - Paldo Volcano Curry Kkokkomyun - South Korea - The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

As soon as I got everything ready to post this morning, I realized one that I’d reviewed wasn’t in the list – this one. It definitely belong in this list and so since redoing this whole list would take hours of work, I decided to give it the Honorable Mention position. It will most definitely be in next year’s list, If it were on the list this year, it would be in 9th place. Indeed it is a very hot curry that will blow your mind and should appear in the top ten. My apologies. Original review
