Nong Shim – Chapagetti Chajang Noodle

Not often I crave instant noodles, but while being sick, all I want is food that was quick, easy, and delicious. It’s important to know that I love the brand Nong Shim and many other brands – but I know if I see it’s a Nong Shim brand, I know that the quality is there!

These instant noodles are “lo mein” style, so you cook the noodles, and then drain the noodles dry before you pour the sauce on the noodles. I must admit, I didn’t use their package of oil, and I used my own oil… and a splash of sesame oil. I did use the other 2 packages – the sauce and the “vegetables”. The sauce is suppose to mimic the “black bean sauce”, but not as strong, but I do get the resemblance! This maybe because it’s suppose to be more “Korean-style”, instead of “Chinese-style”.

The overall quality of these noodles are really good. The sauce is rich and salty. I would buy this again, just because it’s a lo mein style, but I won’t do it when I’m sick. I think I enjoy the hot soup when I’m not well – but this was really good!

Nong Shim – Tako Chips Octopus Flavored

I really love snacks – as you can tell from this wonderful blog! Nong Shim is one of my favourite manufactures of snacks which is Korean! This time, I found a bag of Tako Chips which are octopus flavoured.

No, these snacks don’t actually taste like octopus, but they do have a very interesting taste to them! Instead of a cute octopus shaped chip, these are more “fish shaped” chips that is quite light and crunchy! I found this bag at the Asian grocery store in Toronto, as I haven’t seen it here in Calgary yet!

Overall, I like it as a snack/chip but not for the octopus flavor as there wasn’t much of it. The texture was great and the snack is very flavourful too! It’s not fishy in any way and it just a great munchable munchie!
