Nagasaki Ramyun

Nagasaki Ramyun

We have here Nagasaki Ramyun and you might be thinking that Nagasaki isn’t in Korea. You’re exactly right, but the company that made this package is a Korean one so I’m going to make it anyway.

You’ll need:

1 and 1/2 Coffee cup of water
Nagasaki Ramyun package
Secret Ingredient (to be shown later)

1. Pour the water into your pot and start boiling. When you open the package use the little pointy things to rip it so that the noodles don’t fly out of the bag. Usually if you open the bags the way you open chips it pops out because they make the package extra strong. I work out, don’t judge.

*Side Story*
In Korea they had a comedian/actor endorsing a similar ramyun that tasted just as spicy. He put his face on it and said “최고!” which means “best!”. After that you couldn’t find the ramyun in the stores because it was too popular. It would actually be sold out! If you go to your grocery store looking for it, you wouldn’t find it and you’d have to go to smaller lesser known marts. Isn’t it funny that ramyun became so popular just because someone put their face on it? I got tired of looking for it and found Nagasaki ramyun, it’s just as good, if not better.

2. Once the water starts boiling toss your noodles in it and wait for it to boil again. Don’t overcook it. After Kakaotalking your friends add the Secret Ingredient after the water boils. The secret ingredient is an egg. Seems normal right? Well it makes the ramyun taste so much better.

3. Mix it in with the noodles so it all cooks. Add the dried vegetable package that comes with the ramyun. After 30 seconds turn the heat off, you want to make sure you didn’t over cook the noodles, so even if you turn the heat off before that it’s ok. You just have to be really quick when you add all these stuff.

4. Take the pot off the heat and pour the seasoning in. It’s a little spicy so you can add half of it if you want, depending on your taste. Only add the seasoning after you took it off the heat, it somehow tastes better. It also makes sure that the water doesn’t flow over the pot. If you’ve added it before, you’ll learn this lesson quite quickly.
