    Is this the Red one that won best Instant Ramen on yesterday's GMM?

    • That's the one!

    • +5

      I haven't watch GMM for a while :D

      Link for those interested https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vQxnENSSLM

      IMO best instant ramen you can get in Australia is the Samyang ramen Chicken carbonara


      Followed by the one OP posted (IMO)

      • What about from places like Miracle - do they have other, better options that would be recommended?

        With sriracha sauce? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35es-h6xF-0

        • +2

          I don't know if you'll count Prima Singapore Laksa La Mian as ramen, not just hotttt, the texture of the la main has a firmer bite to my liking, and the laksa sauce is aromatic and creamy, but quite expensive though, maybe cheaper at Miracle.

        are these ever discounted tho?

        • +1


          Not that I have ever seen.

        • Yes actually. I got it for around $5.50 in an asian mart in brisbane

      • Are these dry like mi goreng or soup based?

        • +3

          Soup based

        • +2

          They're pretty versatile. I've drained off the noodles bar about a tablespoon of water and run the seasoning through and it makes for a great dry noodle. Some people use milk instead of water for the broth and it's pretty amazing, too.

      • Omg I just bought this the other week to try and it's one of the best instant ramen I've tried!

      • Way too spicy

    • +1

      Its not as good as Mi Goreng

      • +14

        Mi Goreng and Ramen are two different concepts. Comparing Oranges and Mandarins.

        • -7

          I would classify them both as instant noodles. And I agree, I like Mi Goreng better.

          • +3

            @MrMaestro: I would class oranges and mandarins as fruits, even more specifically citrus, but they're not 1 for 1 comparable. That was NatoTomato's point.

          • +1

            @MrMaestro: Yeah alright next you'll tell us ravioli and dumplings are the same thing

      • +1

        better comparison would be Mi Goreng and https://www.myasiangrocer.com.au/nongshim-chapagetti-chajang.... I like Chapagetti better but also more expensive

    • The Kimchi Ramyun (Nong shim) tasted much better imo until they stopped selling it at Coles.

  • +1

    Accurate description whilst having a bowl of this

    • +1

      Yeah my wife got me these in place of my usual mi goreng noodles and i made them without thinking, first mouthful and it was raining sweat.. so I don't put as much flavouring in now, and usually bung an egg in there too.

      • +2

        You can dump half a cup of mixed frozen veg into the saucepan also. If there is any leftover meats then you can bung that in too.

  • +6

    normal special price is $3 per pack of 5, rite?

    • Where can you get this at $3 per pack?

      • +2

        Woolworths. When half priced.

        • oh…

      • Asian Supermarket

    • yep, I want to know too for "normal" price, so I can stock up :D

    • +2

      Can confirm it has been on special for $3

      Otherwise you seen them for $3.50 special often at Korean supermarkets.

    • $4 is the COVID normal price

  • +6

    Has anyone noticed that the noodle cake is a lot more compressed compared to before?

    Seems to take a little longer to cook as well…or maybe that is just my imagination.

    Only noticed it from this batch that I bought from Woolworths.

    • +2

      ive noticed the last pack i bought which i think was from woolies, the noodles where thinner than previous and the package was actually smaller

      in terms of instant noodles, this brand is usually quite thick, so something has changed.

      • yup the diameter has decreased a little but thickness definatley

        • +1

          yep… i think i might buy a pack from the korean grocery to see if woolies get a totally different product

      • +1

        Yes it's a very noticeable difference! The one from the Korean store is thicker but the weight content says the same. I'm wondering if Woolies has the newer batch and the Korean stores would have had the older stock …

    • Yes I have. Interested to see what changed, it took about the same time to cook for me.

  • +2

    Got it from Costco $15.89 (I believe) for a 20 pack.
    $0.66/100 grams.

    It's dangerously hot. I use 80% of the spices mix and its still very hot.

  • +1

    OP, lucky you put Made In Korea in your post. Otherwise some ozbargainer might think it's from China and then it will turn into OzPolitics.

    • XD

    • +6

      Until someone says: "North Korea best Korea".

      • They have access to internet and OzB too? ;)

    • +1

      I have seen some of these ones which says Made in Chyna before.

      • It's Cheye-na

    • +1

      It's a useful distinction. There are Shin Ramyun batches made in China and they don't taste as good as ones made in Korea.

      • +2

        I wonder how much of it you can attribute to bias?

    • -1

      I dunno, I would think a real ozbargainer would offer a special on a pasta maker and recipes to make your own noodles.

      Asian noodles are just derivatives of the angel-hair pasta that Marco Polo introduced into East Asia during the 13th century, no?!

  • haven't finished my entire box from last deal…Lol

  • +1

    Too much msg and sodium for me

    • +2

      just put less seasoning in… i usually only use half.. thats plenty of flavour.

      • +2

        Am I crazy or is there barely any taste? It's just spicy but bland for me..

        • If you want flavour buy the black version, more of flavour profiles but IMO still prefer the red.

        • Shin Ramen isn't 2 min noodle so you gotta cook it longer. I suspect you're leaving it too watery and the noodle hasn't cooked in the broth enough. I know this sounds weird but trust me there's a technique ;)

          • @supacheap: Ok maybe I'm not crazy just stupid haha

          • +3

            @supacheap: It actually tastes better if you dont cook the noodle in the broth…

            Boil (just with water, don't add the broth poweder) the noodles until 'al dente', drain the water on a colander.

            Then add seasoning onto bowl, hot water, mix it and add the noodles. That way you don't use too much water as usually you need a lot more water to boil the noodles but if you put the broth powder while boiling the noodle, you can't throw some of the broth away as you'll be wasting some of those flavoured soup.

            I'm Indonesian and most Indonesians prefer cooking their soupy Indomies this way too.

            • @4iedemon: This!

            • @4iedemon: I find the noodles haven't soaked in the flavour packet unless boiled with it. It just ends up tasting like spicy water and unflavoured noodles :( Might just be me tho …

              Albeit my method is very similar to yours.
              1. I half boil the noodles usually with a bit more water then drain out excess water.
              2. Add the flavour packets and then continue boil.
              3. When noodles are almost done add in two eggs (no stirring). Then close the lid and let it poach for 2 min.
              4. Serve and enjoy :D

        • Add a bit of miso paste into the soup when it's boiling (approximately 1 table spoon should be enough - but add it to your taste). Thank me later.

          • @Munki: Never boil miso, you can keep it hot but below boiling. Just add miso right after you pour it into the bowl and mix.

            • @nobro25: My bad. Add the miso. Gives it a much fuller taste.

  • 2 x 5 packs for $5.99 on sale at Hanaromart in Brisbane. Saw at Garden City store (opposite Woolies) yesterday.

  • Are these the thick or thin noodles?

    Costco sells the thicker in bulk packages which is not as good.

    • +1

      More on the thinner side I'd say.

    • +1

      They are same. I have both.

  • +2

    Runy nose can be dangerous nowadays

    • yes, only try this at home and not at work where your coworkers can see you :D.. you don't want to be "forced" to take a test…

  • This is good stuff OP.

    I still have some stock from the last round Coles had them at half price - $3 / pack of 5.

  • +1

    Produced from farm-fresh produce, premium quality grains

    I love these noodles, but this is a bit of a stretch.

    • It would be fresh when it gets to the factory.

  • Last time I bought it was $3 1/2 price now I guess they didn't expect to be a sellout and upped the price.

  • +1

    After cooked, if you don't mind eating raw egg, putting one into it, cover up and wait for a minute (or microwave for a minute). Break the egg yolk before you eat.
    You can also put a piece of cheese on the top of the ramen, serve it when it just melted.
    I used to do both and either way can enhance the flavor also reduce the spicy level from the ramen.

    • +3

      +1 to adding a soft poached egg

      -1 to adding cheese

      That's just me though. I know there are a lot of fans who like adding cheese to their ramen, but I tried it once and… just no. A slice of processed cheese is usually what's recommended, to clarify your statement of "a piece of cheese". I wouldn't recommend dropping in a wedge of camembert.

      • +1 to adding pak choy

    Holy crap these are hot. I used like 10% of the packet and it was still really hot.

    • add an egg or chicken

      • why stop there, scallions, sliced onions and some spam.

  • this works best when you invite your special someone in for some ramyun…

    • Only if they're your secretary

  • For those who can't hande the heat, try Ottogi Jin Ramen (Mild). My favourite

    • +1

      Gentle on the arsey end as well.

    These are delicious

  • +3

    You gotta get the perfect water level. Add egg and chopped spring onions. And finish the soup with any left over cold rice. It must be cold cooked rice, not hot/warm rice.
