Another cup of spicy, ebony-colored jjajangmyeon instant noodles for today. Nongshim’s Sacheon Chapagetti takes the original Chapagetti and kicks it up a notch with some added spiciness. Sacheon (Korean for Sichuan) is the place and style of cuisine this cup of noodles is trying to emulate. I would expect these noodles to have a healthy dose of Sichuan Peppers or some similar type of chili pepper for added spiciness. It makes sense. Since Jjajangmyeon was originally a Chinese dish and later made into a fusion dish in South Korea, I think it was a good decision for Nongshim to apply flavors that originated in the same country to create this new version of Chapagetti. That’s about all I have to say, so let’s get started making some Sichuan inspired instant noodles.

Step 1.) Open the lid and remove the 2 packets from inside

Yum! Don’t those noodles look good? Not the easiest cup of noodles to cook, but they look rewarding nonetheless. I’m excited to give these a try very, very soon.

So, what do you think about alternate versions of Chapagetti? Is the original best or do you think you would like the other variations better? Let me know in the comments!
