As a cheese lover, I was really excited to try out Korean cheese ramen (instant noodles) which seems really popular currently. Even the major supermarkets are selling them. The particular brand I bought was the “Ottogi” brand which is also endorsed by (the good looking) Nichkhun of 2pm. I have never eaten any type of cheese ramen before, so this is something new to me.

The front of the packaging. I was attracted by the cute mascot wearing a cheese hat (heart melts). I am a sucker for cute food mascots.

The back of the packaging – All Korean words.

Each packet of ramen (ramyeon) comes with three sachets – dried vegetables (egg, spring onion, carrot etc), seasoning powder and cheese powder. The cheese powder smells really aromatic.

My bowl of cooked noodles using only the provided seasonings. I love the texture of the noodles which is surprisingly quite springy if you take care not to overcook them (I dish them out as soon as the strands separate). The soup colour, though, was not a dark orange hue as shown in the packaging photo. The cheese flavour was there, but not as rich as I expected it to be, as compared to when I first smelled the cheese powder seasoning.

After the first taste test, I livened up my bowl with cubed ham, spring onions and corn nibblets. I also place a sliced cheese on top of the noodles and then ladle the hot soup over, melting the cheese and providing that extra cheesy flavour which I thought was missing ( yes I am a huge cheese junkie :D)

Verdict

If you love cheese, you will probably like this Korean cheese ramen, though I don’t mind it even cheesier. The texture of the noodles are great as well.

    Next time just add a slice of cheese to any instant noodles :) I have tried and quite like it, especially when craving for salty things. Hahaha! Also better to use a slice of cheese to flavor the instant noodles than using packet-sauce.

    Thank you so much for the review. I have seen these in some supermarkets in Hong Kong but not brave enough to buy them as they come in packs for 5 or so. I love cheese but didn’t want it to be too cheesy for health and “body” reasons I did not try it. Looks like it is cheesy but not too much. I will try after your review and the lovely photos.
    Many thanks

      I use a random brand of sliced cheese which was on offer. You can look for low sodium cheese next time!
