Instameal: Samyang Kalgukso

See a kalgukso / Automatically take one / Hello hot breakfast

Name: Samyang kalgukso
Description: Wad of noodles, 2 packets (soup base, dehydrated things)
Price: $1 thereabouts
Spiciness: 2/10
Taste: Noodles are smooth, flat korean hand-cut noodles. Soup can be a bit starchy. For those who don’t like that, stir the noodles around and change water just before noodles are cooked so it can heat through again. Soup base can taste harshly spicy, like the salt content is particularly attracted to the sides of your mouth and trying to preserve them, or failing that, makes your teeth feel rubbery. Luckily, it doesn’t last very long to be an issue. Dehydrated bits contain zucchini. carrots, cabbage, spring onions, and what I think may be …. pancake? The non-starchiest plasticky pancake shred I can name as a pancake. Or maybe it’s meant to be shreds of very thin egg-crepe. I just pick those out.
Would I buy it again? Yes. I like kalgukso. I also like having multiple packets I can add to the noodles.
