For reviewing this Korean noodles we followed the below-mentioned instructions: 

  • First, we boiled the noodles in 400 ml water and drained them.

  • Now, we added the oil and mixed again

The seasoning and the oil mix smoothly without any lump formation. Initially though it may seem like a dry powder but once you add the oil it will transform into a perfect consistency.

Our Testing Experience 

Visually, these are thick noodles with a flatter appearance. The color of the final noodles looks fiery red. While the seasoning and the oil look red hot too.  

Texture-wise, they are remarkable! They are non-sticky, bouncy and do not stick to each other. 

Make sure not to overcook these noodles as otherwise they will start sticking to each other.

Coming to the flavor, these noodles have an intense spiciness, which keeps on building up with each bite. This is definitely not for those with a low spice tolerance level.  

The smokey chilli flavor will envelope your mouth and completely take over your taste buds. Without any doubt, the spiciness is no joke – it completely lives up to its promise! Lastly, thumbs up as we did not observe any oily aftertaste.

Our Testing Experience 

Similar to the vegetarian version, these noodles showcase a satisfying non-sticky texture. 

The chicken flavor is interesting. It leans more towards a pleasant aftertaste and aroma rather than being loaded with chicken pieces. While the chicken flavor itself is pleasant, it didn’t seem to make much of a difference to the noodles as we had hoped.

Comparatively, the veg version offered a bolder spice level that enhanced the overall noodle testing experience.
