#3191: Nongshim POP (Pot or Pan) Beef Flavor - United States

So here’s the second of the POP varieties I’ve seen. This one however is one I found at HMart up in Richmond, BC. Why’s it called Pot Or Pan? Well, you can make it as a broth version and a dry noodle version. Interesting! Let’s check it out!

Lots of little bits.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, soft egg, sprin onion, and boiled beef. The noodles are great – good gauge and light chew. The flavor honestly reminds me of Kentucky Fried Chicken original recipe – but leaning slightly towards a beef back. It’s fascinating! I definitely recommend checking this one out. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 031146043286.

#3118: Nongshim POP Pot Or Pan Chicken Flavor - United States

It’s been so long since I’ve seen a Nongshim product that’s been in an individual pack I’ve not tried it’s making my head spin. I used to get samples from them all the time, but not in quite a while. I miss them! I found this at a Fred Meyer store in Lynnwood, Washington last night! This looks like an interesting new concept for them – make it wet or dry. The name was a little confusing to me at first – I thought it was just called Pop then looked a little closer and thought Pot Por Pan? Ahhh – Pot OR Pan.. That makes more sense. I think I’m going to try pot today. Let’s check it out!

#490: FoodMon DJ-DOC Instant Ramen Rice Toppokki

First things first. My wife pointed this out at a Korean supermarket here in town and I was like ‘what the heck is this?’ So we got it and I’ve had some issues with it. First, I had a lot of problems finding out how to cook it. Also, what was it called??? As you can see, there’s one of those funky square bar codes on top of the container here. I went and scanned it with my Android phone and sent it to the Google translate. Click here to see what it comes up with…

I have no idea what this is – it was a little tag that was bumping around under the plastic wrap. The little thing on the fork is called Ttebokki or maybe Toppokki – I’m really not sure at this point.

This is a pretty big packet of hot, sweet paste. Smells really good!

Here’s the package of vegetables. Good size to it.

Okay here’s a package of the noodles.Interesting…

Then, the Ttebokki or Toppokki (if you know what it is, please let me know!). Never seen anything like this in a bowl noodle kind of thing. But this isn’t your regular old bowl of noodles…

So after looking at this and trying to find English instructions, I decided go cook it this way: put the noodle round into the bottom. Add 150cc water. Put the toppokki on top of that, then all the sauce and the veggies, then put the plastic lid on and microwave for 3.5 minutes.

Here’s everything before the microwave.

Click image to enlarge. The finished product.  At some point the lid popped off! I stirred everything together and tried it. It reminds me of a spicy lasagna in a way. I liked how the big noodle things interacted with the regular ramen noodles. The sauce was excellent!! Everything worked well and it was fascinating. I highly recommend it! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – a lot of awesomeness!

So DJ-DOC is a music group from Korea – enjoy!
