#2634: Samyang Foods Ramen Bokki

#2534: Samyang Foods Ramen Bokki - South Korea - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles ramen

Oh hey, ramen bokki! So this is a fusion of two foods: South Korean ramyun and one of the words I would say I’ve seen spelled about a zillion different ways, tteokbokki. Tteokbokki are big chewy tubes made from rice flour and they’re really good. Usually, it’s made with a spicy and sweet sauce, egg, fish cake, etc. Good stuff! So this is that but instead of with the rice tubes, you get the noodles. Let’s check it out!

I’m reviewing this on September 5th – and all the news right now concerns North Korea and rising tensions over there. Hopefully, peace wins out. Let’s check it out!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat or fish. To prepare, add sachet contents and fill to line with boiling water. Cover for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!

A lot of powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Busan fishcake, kamabomo, and spring onion. The noodles are of a thinner gauge than the standard thick ramyun with a soft tooth and nice character. The broth which is more of a sauce has a bright red color and definitely has the sweet and spicy character of the sauce accompanied with tteokbokki. The included garnish has fishcake and is nice to see. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8801073211018.

I have always had a special place in my heart for this echo effect used in a lot of older TV commercials

#827: Meet The Manufacturer: Paldo Rabokki

Rabokki huh? Ramyun and Ttebokki perhaps? Let’s check this one out!

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). I went with the second set of instructions (the lower ones)

The noodle block

Liquid packet.

Has a sweet taste to it.

The powder seasoning packet.

Our old friend, the spicy red powder!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some onions, red bell pepper and broccoli, some roast beef lunch meat and finally a few slices of hard boiled egg with Krazy Mixed Up Salt on top. Wow – this is very different! The noodles are good – nice amount and they are of good character and quality. The broth is a completely different experience than I’m used to. As you see in the cooking method, you cook the additions in 400cc water along with the liquid packet. Then you add the noodles and the powder packet’s contents. The broth is thick, sweet and spicy. The noodles soaked up a lot of the heat too – the veggies soaked up a lot of the sweetness. It’s awesome stuff! Now as always, I review the base products and not my additions. This is really quite neat stuff and I’m hooked – I hope this comes to the United States someday! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars! Excellent! UPC bar code 8801128509374 .
