BiBimMyun – Korean Spicy Cold Noodles!

bibimmyun

One of my very favorite Korean noodles is the Paldo BiBimMyun, which is the instant version of Korean spicy cold noodles. Koreans usually prefer this during hot summer months in Korea to “cool” them down. As for me, I like to eat it very often, it’s very sweet, spicy, and can get your appetite satisfied on a hot day.

It’s pretty easy to cook this, just boil water, throw the noodles in there for 10 minutes, rinse the noodles with cold water, drain water, and add hot sauce that it comes with.

You can get this easily at most Korean market

For those of you who want to eat “healthy” Korean noodles, there’s actually just the thing for that, Sang Ramen. “Sang” means “raw” in Korean and Sang Ramen maybe be much healthier for you in the long run than instant noodles like Shin Ramen(which is still my favorite but you can’t eat it everyday obviously).

Yeul Ramen Korean Noodles! [열라면]

yeul-ramen-korean-noodles-1

Yeul Ramen (열라면) is probably my second favorite instant noodle, second to Shin Ramen.  Yeul in Korean means “heat”, so similar to Shin Ramen, Yeul Ramen is very spicy.

The taste is a bit different from Shin Ramen, you can taste the ramen more and it’s a bit less spicy.  So if you think Shin Ramen is too spicy for you, give Yeul Ramen a try.

This one isn’t available on Amazon but you can probably pick one up easily at your local Asian/Korean grocery.  This Yeul ramen is pretty popular so it should be easy to get your hands on one.

Shin Ramen Korean Instant Noodles!

shinramen-4

The most popular Korean noodle brand for the last 10 or so years is Shin Ramen (Pronounced Shin-Ra-Myun in Korean).  Without a doubt, Shin Ramen is the most popular noodle brand in South Korea.

Of course, I don’t recommend eating Shin Ramen on a daily basis, maybe couple times a week at most as there’s a lot of sodium and MSG.  It’s not the most healthiest food in the world but it’s definitely tasty and spicy, much better than any of those cheap, instant noodles.

The Shin Ramen comes in different forms, in noodle format and also in instant no
