Paldo Bibim-myun – Korean Cold and Spicy Instant Noodle Review

It was Saturday.

And i was browsing QOO10, looking for cheap deals and i came across this awesome Korean ramyun deals. Without hesitation, I quickly bought 2 e-tickets for the ramyun. I choose 1 Japaghetti ( Korean instant black bean sauce noodles ) and 1 Bibim-myun ( Korean instant spicy cold noodles ). Rush to the Kim’s mart in Sri Hartamas and grab the noodles. Kim’s mart is selling all kind of authentic Korean products, kimchi, chili paste, korean rice, and more than 15 kinds of Korean instant noodles! I got excited and bought more ramyun – Shin Ramyun, Namja Ramyun, KoKo Chicken Ramyun, Spicy Udon Ramyun and few cup noodles.

Once I went home, gently putting the ramyun into my maggie shelf and for the first time I saw the expiry date of the ramyun. Graaa, almost all the ramyun will be expired before May 2014.

It’s ok, I will eat them all before the expiry date. So, I tried the suspicious looking Paldo bibimyun first. There is an apple on the packaging, so i guess there is apple sauce mixture in the cold and spicy sauce.

Bibimyun is very appetizing because of the hot and sweet sauce. Unlike Shin ramyun noodles, bibimyun noodles is different, is lighter and springy. There is a bit vinegar taste and some dried octopus flakes?. I can’t taste the apple sauce though. It’s refreshing and nice to eat on hot days. Not so awesome but still a good ramyun.

Not my favourite tho
