Found this one up in Canada. Nongshim products in Canada are interesting because unlike in the United States where you can find ones made here as well as from South Korea, Canada also has products that come from the Chinese Nongshim factory. That’s a lot of sources for one brand! Let’s check it out!
Nongshim Oolong Men Beef – United States
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, I’m going to go with the microwave instructions. First, completely remove the lid. Add sachet content and room temp water to fill line. Microwave at 1000W for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added boiled beef, fried garlic, soft egg, and green onion. The noodles came out of the microwave piping hot and most certainly done. The doneness of them was very much acceptable given their microwave ride and enjoyable. The broth had an initial beef taste that gave way to a mushroom flavor. Included garnish included mushroom which sadly did not hydrate and was like chewing a piece of wood. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146271245.
Seems like it’s been a while since I’ve reviewed something from Nongshim. Well, let’s check out this one – and it’s kimchi flavor!

The noodle block.

Vegetables and pieces of kamaboko.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added cheese, kimchi, sauteed thin sliced beef, green onion and egg. The noodles are good – thicker gauge than most cup varieties and a very comfort food feel. The broth is tasty and not extremely spicy. Does have a kimchi flavor to it. The veggies hydrate well and the kamaboko when hydrated was actually some of the nest I’ve had in an instant. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146271238.
A great recipe for making your own kimchi at home!
Hello veggies – wow this is a ton for a cup! I’m wondering how this will pan out…
Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles are like a regular supermarket cup noodle, maybe slightly better. The broth is a little richer than your standard chicken cup, and the veggies – luxurious and ample all throughout the whole thing – even big chunks of mushrooms! For a chicken cup, this is about the best I’ve had. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars – pretty dang good! UPC barcode 031146001552 .
We went and got makings for Korean BBQ at the store yesterday and I found this unreviewed cup so I figured let’s do two cups today. Here we go!
Here’s the ingredient panel (click image to enlarge).
A single packet of dry seasonings.
Wow – little shrimps and lots of veggies! The powder has quite an…. unsettling aroma.
Voila – the finished product (click image to enlarge). This stuff… Hmm. The noodles are just fine – pretty decent for a cup. The broth has this kind of fake creaminess to it that’s a little different I must say. It’s almost super-infused with shrimp flavorings. The veggies and seafood bits are great – very abundant and flavorful. This is a superior seafood cup – 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.
Nope – only satire for this cup!~
I’m not a huge Pink Floyd fan, but I reallly like their old stuff – screw Dark Side of the Moon and that Wall crap. Piper At The Gates of Dawn is where it’s at!
Today there was an open six pack of these so I decided even with a zillion ramens I’d get this one to try. Oolongmen!
A single packet – hope there’s veggies somewhere!
Yup! Lots of veggies in the cup! Looks like this might be a good one!
Click image to enlarge. Well, here we go. Not really impressed to be honest – A really ho hum cup of noodles – not spicy, nothing all that fun. Did have a good portion of veggies but that’s not exciting me currently. The noodles were drab. It was just a beef cup really. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. Average.
