Review: Nong Shim Ansung Tang Myun

I worked from home today and was hungry early thanks to the time change, so I whipped up some ramen at about 11. Today I decided on eating the Nong Shim Ansung Tang Myun (Hot & Spicy) ramen.

This makes alot for ramen, the brick is extra big and you add three cups of water instead of the usual two. I added chopped onions and carrots, and with one minute left to cook, a raw egg. The result was a delicious soup that really filled me up. The soup wasn't as spicy as some other spicy ramen I have eaten, but it still had some kick.

This one is worth the $.69 price, order lots!

Review: Japanese Style Udon Bowl

After painting my family room I was staving for some ramen. I opened up the new box from NoodleSon and pulled out this pack of "fresh noodles". The noodles were not dried, they were fresh and sealed in plastic. The container also had: dried vegetables and fish, a brown sauce, and a packet of crushed red pepper.

udon ramen

The instructions were fairly complex for ramen anyway. Boil water, and pour over the noodles. Wait two minutes. Drain. Add the other seasonings and add more boiling water. Wait one minute. Even though I was tired I managed to follow the directions and ended up witha yummy and spicy bowl of Udon noodles.

These noodles cost more than dried noodles, but they also taste better. The price is $2.19, which is not a bad price for a good lunch.

Review: Shin Ramyun (Hot & Spicy)

Ate my last package of ramen (from the old box) from NoodleSon today. Today’s lunch was the Nong Shim brand Shin Ramyun (Hot & Spicy). I fancied this one up (but was too lazy to take pictures). I cooked the noodles for about 2 minutes and then added some cooked bratwurst that I had laying around. I also added one egg and stirred it in, for a special "Egg Drop Brat Spicy Ramen". This ramen was very good.

The ramen "brick" was round and not square, and there were two seasoning packets. One was dried vegetables (carrots and such). The flavoring was red and was quite spicy. I cooked and ate this oe as a soup and it was quite tasty. The spice lingered a bit on my tongue and I really enjoyed the flavor.

I liked this ramen alot!

Another Day, Another Package

Today I received another big box of ramen from NoodleSon. This one included my favorite candy, the chewy "Hi Chews". It also had some nice looking ramen, which I will cook up over the next few weeks.

Review: Nong Shim Big Bowl Noodle

Came home from work last week to cook some lunch and decided to make some ramen. I pulled this beauty out of the pantry and fired up the microwave. After four minutes, I added the hot water to the ramen and was greeted by the pleasant aroma of a Japanese noodle house...

I am not totally sure what all the floaty things were in the ramen, but they tasted good. I think they were some type of seafood...

I ate the ramen quickly as it was very good. It has a seafood type flavor and some seaweed in it. It also has some yummy deep fried crouton like things as well.

I like this one the best of all the instant cup ramen that I was sent.

Review: Midori Tanuki Soba w/Tempura

Today for lunch, I had the Midori Tanuki Soba w/Tempura. This ramen came with some fried fish cakes and what appeared to be croutons as well. The noodles appeared to be made from whole wheat. There was also some sea weed pieces thrown in for good measure.

I don't have any pictures since I ate this at work (no cameras allowed at my office), so you will have to go on text only.

This ramen was quite good. It is the "add boiling water" variety of ramen and "cooks" quite quickly. The noodles were soft and there was enough broth to make it soupy. The broth and noodles have a seafood flavor (enhanced by the fried fish cake). The broth was very tasty and I finished it before I finished the noodles. This product is a step above your typical store purchased ramen, and I recommend it for a good lunch. One drawback of this product is the strong seafood aroma, which may not make you popular at work (I didn't get any complaints so far).

All in all, a good product, and well worth the price of $2.99.

Review: Shirakiki Toki Sen Karami Ramen

Before Cooking

I was hungry tonight at about 8PM (two hockey games and not enough dinner) and so I cooked up this ramen. I am not entirely sure what flavor it was, but it was spicy, perhaps chili pepper flavor? (I did peek at the site, and it is Hot & Spicy flavor...)

Cooking Ramen

I cooked the ramen per instructions, except for the note about "add seasoning to the pun", and in three minutes I had a tasty snack. This was very high quality ramen compared to the cheap store brands that I sometimes purchase. The noodles were good as was the broth. I recommend this ramen!

Curry Egg Ramen

Submitted From: Richmond Hill New York (USA)


  • Two packets of ramen
  • Two eggs
  • Curry power or Curry paste
  • Scallions
  • Cashews
  • Cilantro
  • Hot sauce (optional)

Get two packets of the best ramen brand you can find* and in a pan cook them with enough water just to cover them. The result of this dish is more of a pasta than a soup. While cooking add a lump of butter to the water. This elevates the dish into something saucey.

Also have another pan with boiling water and some vinegar* and poach 2 eggs to your liking. You can also fry the eggs if you want.

When the ramen is done drain most of the water and add the flavor packet plus anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon of curry powder or curry paste. Mix up and place in a deep bowl.

Place the eggs on top and garnish with chopped scallions and cashews and add a sprinkling of cilantro.

Drizzle with your favorite hot sauce. Asian hot oil or Vietnamese chili sauce is great!


1. Actually it doesn\'t matter the quality - even the ramen you find in a supermarket is good, but I like going to Asian stores and picking out brands that I have never seen. There are some interesting Japanese and Korean brands.

2. Vinegar in water helps poached eggs cook better. Just a bit though.
