Spud noodles! I’ve liked pretty much every potato noodle variety I’ve tried. Potatoes are a good way to increase the chewiness of noodles in a pretty inexpensive way. Potatoes are pretty easy to produce I’m guessing – just find some land and throw stuff in the ground and sooner or later – hey – potatoes. Well, let’s check this one out!
Samyang Foods Potato Ramen – South Korea
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and sachet contents to 550ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A lot of powder.
The vegetable sachet.
Greenery and other niceties.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, thin sliced beef and an egg. The noodles have a very enjoyable soft outer and chewy inner – good ramyun. The broth has a nice salty and kind of beefy flavor which harmonizes well. Light on the spicy – just all around tasty. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4580352290121.
This rather unassuming package of ramen came from Bo H. of China. I don’t know if this is exactly what this is called, but I hope it comes close to its name in taste. Potatoes aren’t something commonly found when it comes to instant noodles; there’s sweet potato noodles and potato noodles, but really nothing that involved potato flavor.

Was originally a round block it appears.
The powder seasoning.
Lots of powder.
The paste packet.
I had a little taste – it definitely has a peanut component.
A small packet of bits and pieces…
Very small amount but we’ll see…
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added vegetables, some roast beef lunch meat and some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. So the noodles are nice and plump. The broth and noodles come together masterfully and this honestly tastes so good I’m going to say I’m truly sad I don’t have any more of it! It literally tastes like a dish centering on beef and potatoes. I love it. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – hands down awesome stuff. The bits and pieces weren’t bad either although very scant.
