#2597: Nongshim Neoguri Stir-Fry Noodles Spicy Seafood

#2579: Nongshim Neoguri Stir-Fry Noodles Spicy Seafood - South Korea - The Ramen Rater - neoguri bokkeum

I have long recognized this package – except this one has a twist! These have no broth. Here’s a little from Wikipedia about Neoguri –

Neoguri (Korean너구리 lit. Raccoon dog) is a brand of ramyeon produced by Nongshim in South Korea since 1982.[citation needed] It is exported to over 80 different countries,[1] and is the fourth highest selling brand of noodles in South Korea.[2] It is well known for its thick noodles and its spicy seafood flavour. The Korean version has a big piece of kombu, while the U.S. version doesn’t have a piece of seaweed in it.

I’m experiencing a little confusion about that mention of kombu. I’ve had many packs of Neogurio throughout the years and many I’ve found here in the United Styates have indeed had the kombu in there. So maybe this is a bit off. I remember my teachers in college would never let me use Wikipedia for citations. Well, hopefully it’s correct but I don’t think so… I really like seafood flavors and this should be really nice from what I’m seeing here. I guess we will find out! Let’s have a look!

Wow – Neoguri fishcake in the mix!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, carved squid, 31-44ct shrimp and spring onion. The noodles are excellent – plump and juicy while keeping a nice chewiness. The flavor is undeniably Neoguri and to be honest, I love this – I think it’s better than the broth version. Spicy and tasty! Lots of seafood taste going on and the little raccoon pics on the fishcake are a great touch along with all the meaty little bits that are omnipresent as well as the kombu. This is where it’s at! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146039678.

#1742: Aroi Curry Me! Penang White Curry Stir-Fry Noodle

I got this during my annual trip up to Canada for my birthday! A while back, I reviewed the soup version of this one. I’ve seen numerous soup varieties of Penang White Curry , but this time it’s a Stir-Fry version. Sounds interesting and different – let’s give it a look!

Detail of the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles in 450ml water for 2 minutes. Add in sachet contents and stir well. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The dry seasoning base.

A very light powder – so light that when it opened a little poofed up into my nose.

The paste sachet.

A thick paste – smells good!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, tau pok, white onion, coriander and mung bean sprouts. The noodles came out nice and thick and chewy which I liked a lot. The flavor was pretty good. The curry paste was thick and sticky and tough to get all over after draining though and the powder seasoning added a little too much saltiness I think. But it worked prettywell. Always nice to see a new spin on a neo-classic. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9556466211111.

Here’s another one I was given by the nice folks at T&T Supermarket up in Canada – thanks again! I thought some fresh noodles would be nice for dinner tonight and I’ve wanted to try these for quite some time. Let’s check ’em out!

Here’s the importer’s sticker from the back (click to enlarge).

You get three servings – here’s one of them. Noodles in a bag.

You also get three packets of the powdered seasoning base.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, red bell pepper and Vidalia sweet onion. The noodles are nice and thin – they break up pretty quick in the water and oil and combine well with the sauce.

The International Lunch

Here’s what I had for lunch today (click to enlarge) – not a new review or anything, but thought it was interesting how many international flavors came together on this one. First, FMF Chow Noodles Masala Flavor from Fiji. Added kimchi, a Korean dish, some Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake from Japan, Dua Belibis chili sauce from Indonesia, some ham, stirfry veggies and sweet onion, and a 2 egg omelet with 2 slices of processed cheese and some Tabasco Jalapeno hot sauce – which I presume is all from the United States but might not be. Was pretty good – quite an interesting combo!
