On opening the strange thin plastic packaging, I was disappointed to see what looked like some very cheap thin ribbon noodles in a tight packed little round cake.

Cook with less water than normal (only about a cup) with dried vegies, add paste when they’re ready.

They look okay when they’re cooked.

Odour is strongly sesame.

"Soup" colour is quite dark brown, though there is very little soup.

Noodle texture is okay.  Flavour is very weak.  Sesame and nothing.  Watery and boring.

Disappointing for the price.  These are presented as more like a premium noodle – if you can even believe such a thing exists – but are considerably inferior to many of the ‘standard’ Korean noodles.

You can taste the 98% fat free they claim on the packet.  And it’s not okay.

Rating: Noodles 3/5, soup, 2/5.  Overall 5/10.
