Here’s another one from Mohd – the last of the ones he sent (please feel free to send more varieties and thank you again!) – this is a collaboration between Malaysian company Mamee and South Korean style company Shinsegae. This is a spicy kimchi soup – let’s hit it up!
Mamee / Shinsegae Daebak Spicy Kimchi – Malaysia
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add sachets to 500ml water and bring to a boil. Add noodles and cook 4~5 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A wet sachet
A thick red sauce.
A dry sachet.
Lots of vegetables.
Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles were really great – gauge and chew were large and hearty. The broth was a very tasty kimchi with a good level of sweetness to it. The spiciness? Definitely much more subdued than the dry version of Daebak. This one has a really great taste to it and I was very impressed. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555022305905.
So yesterday was my birthday, and one of the best I’ve had yet. This one was a little different; usually I’m all about going out somewhere to eat or partying up. I had a couple goals for my birthday. One was to do a mukbang of this one and publish it yesterday – which I was able to do.
The other was to get 20,000 steps on my walking tracker. Well, I ended up at 18,810 – close but no cigar. At least I can go for this pretty much any day. Certainly, my feet were pretty sore at the end of the day – was almost 9 miles worth of steps. Either way, a new record for me since I started tracking that.
Anyways, it was a really great day and I thank everyone for their well-wishes and my family for making it really nice!
But yeah – ghost pepper noodles – and they’re black! Smack dab in the middle of a day where I’m doing a lot of exercise, I slammed a big block of carbs – and it was fun. There are some videos below to check out – the unboxing, the cooking, and finally, the mukbang itself where I slurp this sucka down. Let’s get to it!
Mamee Shinsegae Daebak Ghost Pepper Spicy Chicken – Malaysia
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add boiling water to line for 4 minutes. Poke holes in lid and drain. Add in wet sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The black noodle block!How is it black? Squid ink? Nope – berries and cocoa!
A wet sachet.
Thick. Dark. Smells spicy.
Finished (click to enlarge). The black noodles are simply striking. They were decent too and had a nice gauge and mouthfeel. The flavor coated evenly and was a very hot and spicy level. I’ve had a lot spicier, but this one does pack a wallop. Tasty and fun! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555022306698.
I was contacted by a guy at Mamee in Malaysia about a new ultra spicy variety . I was game. He sent them. They arrived the day before my birthday and Miles and I cracked them open! Let’s check ’em out!
Unboxing Time: Limited Edition Ghost Pepper Daebak – Malaysia
This one was sent by a person named Shoffee in Malaysia – my thanks! This is truly something I’d never be able to review without a reader sending it in. From what I’m getting on the package, it looks to be much like the popular fire noodles. At the very least, it’s definitely influenced by them. Let’s give them a try!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, boil noodle block in 500ml water for 4~5 minutes. Drain, saving 6 spoons of water (going by the formula 1 spoon = 15ml * 6 = 90ml). Add in liquid sachet contents and stir fry for 1 minute. Add in garnish,. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A large liquid sachet.
Thick and sticky – reminiscent of kecap manis.
The garnish sachet.
Seasoned textured vegetable protein.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, fried onion, soft egg, and spring onion. Noodles were good – nice chew and gauge to them. The flavor was very reminiscent of the fire noddle, although sweeter . 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555022305882.
I received a box from Mohd in Selangor, Malaysia the other day – thanks you very much! I used to get varieties from Malaysia almost weekly and lately it’s been pretty rare. Really excited to try what’s within! Let’s check it out.
Mystery Box Of Spicy Instant Noodles From Malaysia – Unboxing Time
Was thinking about what to have for lunch and the big box of 48 packs of this stuff told me to have one! So I did. Here’s the original review I did recently.
Click image to enlarge. I added sweet onion, a little peanut butter, processed cheese and odeng. Adding all of those things still doesn’t put the heat down – pretty amazing! I still say this is the absolutely hottest stuff out there! Top of the Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time! The noodles are awesome – great quality and chew. The broth is so spicy; words are hard to describe other than by saying wow! The veggies are nice as well. I still am giving this one 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. This is a store brand by the Korean store emart (we’ve got Walmart, they’ve got emart). UPC bar code 8801073110564 – you can get it here.
Here’s something new from emart. emart (이마트) is the biggest store in Korea! They sent samples of their white broth ramyun a few months ago and now this, their ultra hot and spicy.
Wow look at all the flames, guy blowing his top and a thermometer!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Note the thermometer on the back.
I can’t reaqd this, but I’m going to guess its a little information on SHU. What are they? SHU is an abbreviation of Scoville Heat Unit, a measure of a spiciness of a pepper or anything spicy. Here is a chart of the heat levels of different peppers from Wikipedia (click image to visit Wikipedia article):
As you can see from the chart, habanero peppers are 100k-360k SHU. The noodles here claim to be 5,930 SHU, which is closer to a jalapeno. I can attest though that jalapenos are pretty hot and if these noodles were 100k-350k, they would only be palatable to a fraction of the population.
Here’s the noodle block – large and circular.
The seasoning packet!
Wow – some major stuff here. I gave the powder a taste – and a tiny one at that – and my tongue’s been burning for over a minute.
The veggie packet.
Nice amount and variety.
Last time, they sent me a couple hats!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added two slices of processed cheese, an egg, onion and odeng. The noodles are excellent – perfect example of tasty Korean ramyun noodles. I always taste everything before I add anything, and that’s where the review comes from – I don’t review what I add to the noodles. I can quite honestly say that this has the absolutely spiciest broth I’ve ever had. It’s ridiculous; I mean this stuff is sooooo spicy! That being said, the flavor other than hot is kind of hard to distinguish; not really salty, just really really hot! The veggies are excellent – plentiful and nice. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars – man I can’t tell you how absolutely fiery hot this is; if you like it spicy, this is for you! UPC bar code 8801073110564 – you can get it here.
Here’s a guy trying it for the first time – kind of funny – he says its not spicy enough at the end although he’s been dripping since the first bite from the heat!
This is absolute marketing genius; a QR code that boosts lunch time sales using the position of the sun in the sky.
It amuses me that this guy is surprised that a big supermarket in Korea doesn’t have a lot of American food. Hello! It’s A DIFFERENT COUNTRY!!! I would love to check out emart – I don’t care if I can’t read it – I think it would be a lot of fun to try things and figure out what they were afterwards; kind of like ‘grocery gambling!’ Of course, you could always ask someone for help – haven’t met any rude Koreans thus far.
