#3243: Sapporo Ichiban Pickles Kimchi Chige Ramen – Japan

#3243: Sapporo Ichiban Pickles Kimchi Chige Ramen - Japan

Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Kimchi chige flavor soup is made up with savory seafood, veggies, and bonito broth. Plus added garlic so that you can feel some umami in the spicy soup. Sourness and spiciness of kimchi goes well with the soup and soft texture of tofu toppings to whet your appetite.”

O’m unsure about the pickles reference; I think it has to do with the kimchi aspect as I found Pickles Corporation and it looks to be about things ‘pickled’ perhaps. Let’s check it out!

#762: Long Kow Kimchi Pickles Bean Vermicelli

Here’s one Greg B. from Florida sent a while back. This sounds pretty interesting – let’s give it a try.

Not usually a fan of bean thread but this looks interesting; lots of different ingredients (click image to enlarge).

Here’s the block of bean thread.

The seasoning packet.

One trippy amalgam of ingredients…

Finished (click image top enlarge). This is just one of those I don’t like. The bean thread is the main problem here; it’s bean thread. Hard to eat, kind of slimy… Just not something I find satisfying at all. The broth on the other hand is very interesting – it has a fascinating tang and heat to it I liked. Then there’s the veggies – they’re wonderful! Lots of them and the re-hydrate very nicely. Yeah so this is a bummer; any kind of noodle other than bean thread would’ve worked. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Wow these guys are stoked – not sure what they’re saying here.

Looks like a Long Kow commercial
