I had been heard about the spiciest Korean noodle, fire noodle or Samyang ramen, that I could buy in Malaysia, and whenever I see some youtube link about the ramen, like this one below:
Or this one below:
It makes me want to try it. So I asked my wife to buy and then check it out the package below:
These five packs of noodles cost RM 22.5, way high compare to other Korean noodles that I usually buy, which is RM 15 for five packages. If I did not watch the youtube, probably I would not get the noodle. What amazes me, despite the price is high, it almost finished in the Aeon supermarket. This noodle was living proof of economic principles; the higher the demand, the rate will be higher as well. Some Korean restaurant in Malaysia even serves this noodle, along with some egg, vegetables with price starting RM 30 and above.
There are only two packages of seasonings inside the box, one bag red color dish looks like chili, and the other one is dried seasonings. The red color package contains chili and a bit careful when you pour this out into a bowl. Without further due, I immediately cook the noodle, and here it comes.
This is the final result of the noodle, I did not add anything because I want to try the original taste, and all I can see is red color inside the bowl. The dangerous of this noodle, at the beginning you would not feel it is spicy, I even look down this noodle because I am Indonesian and born in Palembang, thus eating chili is our daily food, but as the time goes by, the spiciness slowly build-up, and it tastes like a flame. I read the fire noodle package carefully, and it supposes to contain chicken taste, but I did not feel any chicken taste except chili. My tongue was numb, and my tears start coming, just about half of the portion that I ate.
Overall experience, this Korean noodle lifts the name of its spiciness, as it says ‘Korean fire noodle,’ the taste can really make your tongue numb, and tears come out due to its spiciness. If you have not tried, this one worth to try for once and you will not regret it (or you do after half portion, but its worth it!!).
