Instameal: Nongshim Shin Kimchi Ramyun

Name: Nongshim Shin Kimchi ramen
Cost: $0.65 (it was on sale at the time)
Contents: Wad of noodles, 1 soup base sachet, 1 sachet dried vegetables
Spiciness: 5/10
Taste: Noodles 5/10, Broth: 7/10
Would I buy it again? Yes.

Shin: Famous ramen/ This one is medium heat/ Not super spicy

Nifty packaging/ Korean instant noodles/ So considerate


At first glance, fish food/ But actually dried kimchi/ Don't feed fish with this


Fire engine red/ Not as spicy as it looks/ (Taste buds gone awry?)

It’s been a long time, but I do remember liking this one a lot. Out of all the spicy kimchi noodles, I liked this one the best. It is on the spicier side, but it’s the sweet sort of spicy. The kimchi bits help make it sweeter. The kimchi bits are also sizable, and have a vegetable-like texture. (Instead of reconstituted dried something.) You can make it less spicy by adding more water.
