I think you can feed a family of 4 with this one packet of noodles! Flavor-wise it was a familiar taste, it’s the taste that I associate with Korean seafood flavor which is something like cuttlefish. It’s pretty consistant with all the other Korean seafood flavored instant noodles. I wasn’t even really feeling seafood flavor today because of this reason BUT I had this sitting in the cupboard for a while so I had to get to it one day or another. I added some pea shoot sprouts that I had left over in the fridge and a yummy egg.

Saying the name of these noodles are enjoyable indeed. Chapagetti! Chapagetti! Mmmm…the gold packaging makes it look officially tasty. Inspired by the noodle bag I added a sprinkle of bite sized red onion and a sprinkle of frozen vegetables.
These noodles came with a packet of oil and a packet of powdered seasoning. Once the noodles and veggies were cooked and drained in went the seasoning and oil and mix mix mix! Think of Indomie Mie Goreng. The powder turned into a thick paste which made it hard to combine. The teeny oil packet was not enough. I could have added more olive oil but I didn’t.
And tada! Here is the result of all that stirring. Doesn’t look very appetizing does it? And honestly, the flavor was ok. Edible…but not as good as restaurant made Ja Jang Mien. The noodles were thick and chewy which are the textures that always agree with me. If you’re wondering what flavor this is, it’s bean paste flavor which is a bit nutty and salty. I’m happy with my decision to add the onions and frozen veggies. The onions and corn balanced this flavor out with a little sweetness. But I’d still eat Chapagetti again just not anytime soon.

There was nothing really special or unique about this flavor worth mentioning except for the noodles. Overall this flavor was ok. I was a little disappointed that it didn’t taste too much like clam soup. The texture and consistency of the noodles were satisfactory. Noodles are medium wide which still required the extra cooking time of a lot of Korean instant noodles. I wish I had some real clams or any seafood to add to the noodles. Hmmm….I think I will have to go to the market and buy a frozen bag of mixed seafood to keep in the freezer for these types of situations! A tasty clam flavored instant noodle has still yet to be discovered. The search continues.

Woke up starving one morning…er…afternoon and what better way to satisfy my hunger than with a tasty bowl of noodles? After standing in front of the the noodle closet for what seemed like forever because I could not decide, (everything looked so good!) I finally chose the spicy seafood flavor udon from Nongshim. The fun thing about this noodle is the round shape that fits perfectly in the pot. As with all Korean brand instant noodles, I find the noodles are on the very al dente side so I like to cook for an additional 5-7 minutes. This gets the noodes soft and chewy just the way I like it. The additional cooking time allows the noodles to soak up a lot of the broth. Because these are udon style noodles, they are a bit thicker which makes it a perfect broth soaker upper. Yum. The broth has a very strong seafood taste but the spicy is more on the mild side. The dominate flavors that come through are squid and garlic. I added only a handful of dried shitake to the soup and garnished with purple cabbage and green onions.
