Bibim Men Noodle soup

This is a  Sweet and Spicy  noodle soup from Korea. Reminds me of  Cold Soba noodles (w/ sauce).  You prepare just like you would if you were eating  a pack of Top Ramen or Maruchan Ramen.

  • Boil water in a sauce pan
  • Open  a single pack (or how many you want)
  • Set the packet of sauce aside for later
  • Drop dry noodle “brick” into the sauce pan  (of boiling water)
  • cook for 3-4 minutes (so that the noodles soften and hydrate)

This is where it gets different…

  • Remove the noodles from the water
  • Wash in cold water (3x according to the package directions)  to cool the noodles
  • Place the cold noodles into a bowl or onto a plate.
  • Open the sauce packet and spread it over the noodles
  • Mix as needed
  • Eat

The finished product I ended up with was comparable to a sweet and spicy spaghetti? I think anyone interested in Asian food should try it at least once and form their own opinion  Even if you end up not liking it. You can still use the dry noodles for Japanese-style ramen.

A Soda plus milk mixed together? Sounded kind of crazy when a friend of mine first told me about it but I was willing to try it. To my surprise it actually worked. The closest thing I could compare it to is a cream soda, since the milk flavor is most of the experience with a light touch of carbonated water.

There are few different flavors available but I’ve only had the chance to try Regular and strawberry.

Regular, strawberry, orange, mango, apple, banana, peach, melon, pineapple

I’m looking to try the other flavors if I can find them, but like with Pocky, it’s sometimes hard to find a flavor.

Orion Choco FLAKI cereal bar

The Import label has the item named CHOCO FLAKE and it’s a crunchy cereal bar. It’s contains corn flakes and crunchy rice lightly coated with some chocolate. There are similar products here in the US. The actually size of the bars are smaller than the ones found here in the states. The good part is that the package I bought turned out to have 4 of these smaller sized cereal bars (individually sealed)  for under $1.50

Nice, if you ever wanted to share it others or were trying to make it last. It was more about the crunch than the  chocolate. The Choco pie I recently posted about had more flavor.  Perhaps I should be looking something more unique than a cereal bar when I pick up something my local Asian market. I’ll continue trying Korean snack foods since It’s I’ve had plenty of experiences with Japanese and Filipino snacks.
