SAMYANG ~ This brand arrived in Malaysia not too long ago, when people began to discover their love for K-dramas, and it hit our country like a storm.
Everyone loves Samyang’s ramen noodles — They’re halal, delicious, easy to cook and best part is, they come in a variety of flavours!
Although some of these Samyang noodles are limited edition releases, fret not, because you can easily get them from our store all day, everyday.
That said, with so many flavours to choose from, which one tastes the best? Let’s find out:
The original flavour comes with a noodle block and two small packets, one for the sauce and another for the seaweed and sesame toppings to be sprinkled on top of the noodle.
Honestly, the sesame topping doesn’t anything to the taste, but it does make the ramen look more appetising. Add a fried egg on top to elevate your dish!
If you love the taste of kimchi (fermented cabbage) when eating Korean barbecue, Samyang’s Kimchi Ramen is for you!
It has the same sour aroma you usually get when you open a bottle of kimchi and it also has the blend of a strong tang and mild heat similar to kimchi.
The cheese powder used in it is way too fake (it tastes just like the one used in Ritz cheese sandwich crackers) and it hardly blends with the ramen.
If you want the taste of cheese in your fire noodle, just add a real cheese to the original one instead of eating this.
Preparing the topokki was incredibly simple. The tteok, or rice cake, had no problem with softening up in the microwave. With a little extra time in the microwave, the sauce thickened up pretty nicely.
Although it wasn’t as sweet as the ramen version, it still was very flavourful. The intense heat lived in painful harmony with the sweet, savoury, and slightly nutty taste.
2x Spicy ⭐
With a spicy level of about 8000 units (which is the equivalent of eating an entire jalapeno), this Samyang flavour not only became a viral internet challenge, but is also one of the spiciest instant noodles on the market.
This flavour is worth trying at least once (or just so you can say you did).
The first thing you’ll notice if you make this is that the aroma of corn is very strong. The noodles are really nice, like usual.
Taste-wise, you cannot taste much corn. There is a hint of it there but the spicy liquid soup base kind of overpowers it.
Just like cheese, adding cream to Buldak Bokkeum Myun is a popular way to make the notorious ramen more enjoyable. However, this one does not disappoint like the Cheese version.
Samyang’s Carbonara flavour has the similar level of sweetness to Cheese flavour, but without the disturbing fake-cheese taste, which makes the ramen taste so much better. The decreased level of spiciness also helps you enjoy the product more pleasantly.
