How to Prepare Ottogi Yeol Ramen

Ottogi’s Yeol Ramen is yet another package of instant noodles that follows in the footsteps of Shin Ramen with a relatively mild, spicy flavor. I guess every company has to have their own version of a classic spicy noodle? It must be written somewhere in the fundamental fabric of the universe, because they all have this type of product. Just by looking at the package, I predict that Yeol is going to be spicier than Shin Ramen. Or, at the very least, present something new in terms of spiciness to the table. I really hope there is something that separates this package of ramen from the others, because these noodles can get pretty boring. I’m looking for something that has its own identity, instead of being another cookie-cutter product. My hopes are set high by the artwork and name on the package, with its intimidating presence. I don’t know about you, but I’m shakin’ in my boots. Time to swallow the fear and make some instant noodles!

Step 1.) Open the package and remove the two packets from inside

Long time no packaged ramen! I’m pretty much used to cooking cup ramen these days, so making these noodles was a bit of chore… It was an eye opening experience, for sure. The convenience of cup noodles over packages can’t be denied!

How spicy do you like your ramen? What is the perfect level of spiciness for you? What kind of chili peppers make for the best spice? Let me know in the comments!
