In a world full of instant ramen/noodle options, picking one out of the many brands could be confusing and overwhelming. But hey, that’s what reviews are for, right? Today, we’re going to be checking out Shin Ramyun from the South Korean company Nongshim. There are four types of Shin Ramyun – cup, bowl, black, and the regular pack – but I will be focusing on just the latter one.
At 120g net, the noodle is big enough to fill you up. Other than the dry noodle and the seasoning, it also comes with dried vegetables such as green onion, mushroom and pepper. It is served with soup.
What’s the verdict? The noodle is soft but still chewy enough for biting. Furthermore, the hot, spicy taste from the seasoning is deep and flavoursome. To get the best out of the seasoning, it is recommended to use all the seasoning powder and as little water as possible for a rich soup.
It is, indeed, not suitable for people who can’t eat spicy food – but others will definitely enjoy a bowl of this. Also, just like other instant noodles, Shin Ramyun is high in carbohydrate, sodium and fat, and poor in other things such as protein, vitamin and minerals – so consume in moderation, and eat them with extra vegetables and protein.
- Tasty soup/seasoning
- Sufficient portion
- Might be too spicy for some
- Like other instant noodles, lacking in good nutrients
