55. Samyang Cheese Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen

Firstly and most importantly, THANK YOU Samyang Foods for sending all this spicy love my way from South Korea!

The same company, Samyang, sold this same product in a different black colored packaging earlier. They shifted the cheese flavored to a yellow packet because that makes it easier to distinguish, recognize and remember the cheese flavor from the regular one. But as far as I have gathered, the taste and spiciness is still the same!

 Cooking directions as on the back of the pack-

  1. Put noodles into the 600ml boiling water for 5 minutes.
  2. Please remove the water from noodles (remain 8 spoons of water) and put liquid soup into the noodles, stir-fry 30 seconds.
  3. Put cheese powder and stir well and serve.

How I love a nice and fat noodle block! Also I cooked these for about 3 minutes in the boiling water because I like my ramen noods a little springy and with some chew to them.

The spicy sauce smells just great! And the cheese mixed with bits of dried nori and sesame seeds looks just like the Kraft Mac&Cheese cheese! Joy!

I would have preferred the nori and sesame seeds in a different sachet to be able to sprinkle on the top as garnishing.

My beautiful bowl of noodles, which smell fantastically spicy and cheesy!

First bite and I knew I was going to wipe this bowl clean! It is soooo tasty (also I am a sucker for all things spicy)!

The noodle quality is so good and on top of that the sauce is slightly sweet while being spicy and obviously cheesy but not in an overwhelming way! I could also taste a hint of ginger in there. Wow.

The sesame seeds add a bit of nuttiness, which is refreshing. However I did fail to taste the chicken flavor and not that it matters because these noods are delicious as is!

The little bit of cheese adds richness to it and it has a sour cheesy aroma that makes it all the more irresistible. And the best part is that it is not numbingly hot as the heat is manageable and one can still enjoy the flavors.

Lastly, I have more than a few “pro tips” this time –

  1. Please be careful while inhaling and eating these noods, you don’t want the bowl too close to your nose. Yes it is that spicy!
  2. Keep a few tissues handy.
  3. Do not sip water in the middle. Learn from mistakes.
