So far, I’ve gone through 2 bowls. Unfortunately, the next day (including the 2nd bowl) I get this sharp pain running up and down inside my left chest. I thought I was getting a pre-warning that a heart attack was on the way. I would have to guess that there is something in the flavor packet which is to blame. And what are those gray pieces of something floating on top of the soup? Looks like reconstituted whale blubber. I think I will “regift” these at Xmas time.
SON LIKES THESE VERY MUCH WITH SOY SAUCE ADDED
I bought these first in the spicy chicken and although a little spicy for his tummy, he became addicted to them and said he could never eat the old ramin noodles again. He just usually had to take his tummy medicine after eating. This time I ordered these not noticing that they had fish in them. This was a larger size bowl which I thought would fill him up better. He said they are not spicy and good if he adds soy sauce to them and he would like for me to order them again. He says his favorite is still the spicy chicken and the ginger beef. Ginger beef was not quite a spicy. We just wish these came in more non spicy varieties particularly a non spicy chicken. Flavorful, but less spicy. Also, a little more of the added veggies in sauce mix would be nice.
We have nothing against spicy , in fact, we come from New Mexico with the best in the world Hatch green chilies. It is a different kind of spice though and you can buy them in mild, medium and Hot. Some peoples tummies are just’ fussy’ when it comes to certain kinds of spicy.
Upgrade Your Instant Noodles with Nong Shim and Add-ins
Before you start wagging a finger at me, I know instant udon is no substitute for the real thing. During my years in Japan, I ate bowls of hot noodles: soba, udon, and ramen – shiyo, shio, tonkatsu, miso, and butter corn – among others. On occasion, I ate instant noodles, too. There was a time and place for everything.
If you are looking for a quick, inexpensive, hot lunch that is relatively healthy (vs. a standard, fast-food combination lunch), Nong Shim is a good start. If sodium is a concern, eat the noodles and leave the broth. Add seasonings, vegetables and either eggs or meat to finish it off.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, executive editor at Serious Eats, recently posted an article, “Ramen Hacks: 30+ Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Instant Noodles.” I highly recommend you search out and read the full article because you’ll never go back to relying on the flavoring packet alone to make instant noodles.
I’ve distilled his tips down to these four areas:
* Simple Add-ins – Miso paste, chili bean sauce, Thai curry paste, Japanese curry powder, fish sauce, harrisa, vinegar and ponzu.
* Vegetation – Baby spinach, romaine lettuce, bean sprouts, thinly sliced cabbage, watercress, and scallions “should wilt in a matter of seconds.”
* Eggs – Hard boiled, soft boiled, the egg-drop method, poached eggs and fried eggs.
* Simple Simmered Meat – Thinly sliced meats cook in a matter of seconds directly in the pot. Chicken breast, pork tenderloin, or flank steak are all great candidates.
In addition to Nong Shim Big Bowl Noodle Udon, I also recommend Nong Shim Beef and Ginger Bowl and Myojo Ippeichan Yakisoba Japanese Style Instant Noodles. All of these varieties have great flavor but are mild enough to serve to both kids and adults. Another recommendation is for Nong Shim Kimchi Noodle Bowl, which is too spicy for young children but excellent for anyone who enjoys a hotter soup.
Rating: Four stars.
Not for the squeemish.
I thought I can only buy stuff like this @ Asian market.
I am pretty sure that it is not healthy but it taste really good! Probably my favorite from bowl noodle!

Nong Shim’s fresh udon is a better product
needs a little more flavor though. Also might be cheaper at your local grocery store.
