I was pretty excited to try this new Korean ramen from orderramen.com. The Ottogi Kiss Myon is a spicy, brothy, chicken flavor which I found really lived up to the description. First, I cooked this one exactly 3 minutes as the website recommends, not the usual 4 or longer for other “gourmet” noodles. I found the broth to be rich and flavorful, it was not a thin watery broth, it was hearty and full flavored. The spice level was enough to keep me interested, but not eye watering. The noodles themselves were a great texture, but be careful not to cook too long, I think these were thinner than usual. I think this would be a great one to add green onions or thin sliced carrots to, in order to bulk up the dehydrated vegetables, and perhaps an egg too.
As you know, I don’t do star ratings here, that’s for the RamenRater, he gave it 3.75/5 stars.
Nick from OrderRamen.com sent me a goodie box of ramen last week. The box featured some new flavors that are supposed to be good as well as some old favorites like Sapporo Ichiban. First a quick review of Sapporo Ichiban. When the box came my kid and I were both excited, but since he doesn’t like spicy stuff, I picked out the non-spicy stuff and let him choose. After much deliberation he settled on the Sapporo Ichiban beef flavor noodles. I cooked them my favorite way for making dry noodles, that is, add half of the flavor pack to the water, boil, drain. Then add the noodles back to the pot, and sprinkle seasoning while stirring. I was able to share this secret technique with my 3 year old as he “helped” me.
I managed to sneak a few bites before my kid noticed and I must say that I still like Sapporo Ichiban ramen. It is simple and good tasting. The texture is good and the seasoning is not too strong. My kid ate the rest, so he’s a fan too.
