Re-Review: Paldo Bulnak Bokkeummyun Pan Stirfried Noodle

Re-Review: Paldo Bulnak Bokkeummyun Pan Stirfried Noodle - South Korea - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles - octopus - spiciest

Okay, okay. After being bombarded with people disagreeing with the odrer of the ranking on my The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles list, I thought I’d give this one another go-round.

The little octopus on the pack seems to be beckoning me to try again – I’ve seen him alkmost every trip to a Korean grocery, although it’s pretty hard for me to do re-reviews. Why? Well, I’ve already tried it. I’ve got so many that I need to try here… But lately that number has been dwindling so just seemed like a good time and especially a good time since I’m preparing for the 2017 edition of the spicy list.

I think I’ll do a mukbang video for this one. That’s when you scarf it down really fast in front of all to see. Kind of weird but why not – that’ll be at the bottom. Okay – let’s check out this Bulnak variety!

The vegetables sachet.

Lots of green onion.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles hydrate just right. An excellent gauge and chew as well. The liquid base coats everything thoroughly – no skimping here. The flavor is an extremely fiery one. It’s a little sweet and then has a nice seafood kind of taste as well. The included garnish works just right. Definitely not for the innocent bystander spicy fan – only for the hardcore. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 648436101030.

#1236: emart Dare You! Habanero Ramyun

On my Top Ten Spicy list, the package version of this is #1. Hottest thing ever – hands down! Well, they also sent me the cup version – let’s see how spicy this sucker’s gonna be!

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Can’t read Korean, but pretty sure there is a little beef in this one. To prepare, add soup base sachet and boiling water up to inner line. Cover and after 4 minutes, stir and enjoy.

Here’s the lid (click image to enlarge).

The soup base sachet.

Oh yeah this stuff smells spicy.

Here are the veggies and meaty bits from the inside of the cup.

 Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion and sauteed beef. The noodles are pretty good for a cup. I found as the meal went on, they seemed to only get better; maybe an extra minute or two during the steeping could be a winner here. The broth is, well, HOT. If you don’t like spicy, run away, screaming and wetting yourself. I’m not kidding! The veggies are really nice in this one as well. Just ridiculously hot. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8801073210011.

Just watch him eat it – you know what’s going to happen!

The Ramen Rater Appears In TV Ad For O’Live South Korean Show

So I did a live taping a few weeks ago for a brand new show on South Korea’s O’Live TV network. As far as the guys on the show, I think one is a K-pop star and the other was on South Korea’s Master Chef. Could be very wrong about that though! If anyone knows, clue me in in a comment. The first episode of the show is all about spicy South Korean ramyun. Here it is!
