Wherever I went, there was Ramen.
Korea (duhh), Japan, India, and the U.S. (Chicago and New York).
They all had ramen addicts.
It was the weirdest experience to see my boyfriend (white, half jewish hahahaha) eat ramen and kimchi.
God, no, I didn't force him, I swear!
He loves it with kimbap, just like many Koreans do.
He's so Korean.
These two are the combo from above
(Ramen and Kimbap)
People consider this a ramen, too, but the name Jjamppong is actually
a Koreanized Chinese food, which has spicy soup and a lot of seafood in it.
It sort of does taste like Jjamppong.

Wang Ttukong literally means king cap.
Well, just look at it. It does have a pretty big cap.
This company needs a little more creativity in naming their products...

Another Shin Ramen Cup Noodle!
Except, it's smaller than #10.
But it brings a lot more profit!
Hey, now I'm vertically petite and proud :)

Yook Gye Jang is actually a Korean traditional soup made with beef and vegetables.
Because people love it so much, this company made this a kind of ramen.
As expected, it's selling well.
It's my favorite :)
I personally think that it has the best noodle texture.

Anyone tried Jjajangmyun?
If you like Jjajangmyun, then you're going to like Jjapaghetti
Remember Jjamppong I mentioned in #9?
Jjajangmyun and Jjamppong are both Koreanized Chinese food.
I remember eating Chinese food in the U.S., which is fried rice, some veg. noodles, egg rolls, orange chicken, and such (Panda Express!)
When you order Chinese food in Korea, it's most likely going to be Jjajangmyun or Jjamppong.

Just to make things clear!!!
We do not eat Raccoon!
There's nothing from raccoon that went into this ramen.
It's only named Raccoon Udon because raccoon represents Japan
and Udon is a Japanese food.
So the point of the name is that it is just as good as Udon made in Japan.

This ramen is kind of a paradoxical ramen...
There are two types of reactions after eating this ramen.
1: What the @$%&$% I'm never going near this ramen again in my life.
2: This is my food for the rest of my life.
... personally, I'm more of a #1 person...
I don't abhor it but I don't really see the point in eating this ramen..
Well, it's still the second most popular ramen!
And finally, ladies and gentlemen,
The grand price goes to.....!!!
Anyone remember from my other blog about foreigner's favorite Korean food?
There was one food named Tok bokki
Rappokki is a combined word of Ramen and Tok bokki.
It's basically Tok bokki with ramen noodles in it.
Self explanatory :)
I've tried it recently,
I thought it'd taste disgusting.
It was so good.
That's what I ate for lunch today hehe.
Gotta love it.
I know. How typical.
You know that Koreans eat kimchi with EVERYTHING, right?
I mean... I've seen people eat it with cupcakes.
As many really bad kimchi combos there are,
there are really really good combos like the picture below.
See a bunch of vegetables and sausages below?
Doesn't look too appetizing...
Well, plop some ramen in it, and it turns into...
A Boodae Chigae
