We found out about this fire noodle quite some time ago but couldn't seem to find any in Penang at that time. Apparently, you can find them in Singapore. So, we kinda let the thought go since neither one of us are going to that Merlion City anytime soon.
Then, she found out that there is one Korean Mart at Prima Tanjung, Tanjung Tokong has this Korean Fire Noodle. IMAGINE OUR EXCITEMENT but because we were both so busy that time, we kinda forgot about it.
Not until he went to Singapore for SEA Games and his good friend got for him a few packets of this Samyang's Bool Dak Bokkeum Myun, which is also called, Flaming Chicken Fried Noodles. She was surprised that he actually remembered about it to be honest. Thank you Sniper Teck and Bernice!
So, we got home from work on a working weekday and decided to give this FIRE NOODLE a try. She's super blessed that he enjoys cooking :)
Hint: Read till the very end to see how you can get a packet of this fire noodle and a mystery gift from us! :)
Samyang's Bool Dak Bokkeum Myun a.k.a Korean Fire Noodles
Flaming Chicken Fried Noodles
One of Korean's Spiciest Ramen
Top 3 in the Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles of All Time in 2014 according to The Ramen Rater,
We seriously thought it couldn't be that spicy as what is portrayed in the videos of these people taking up this Fire Noodle Challenge. So, we decided to also take a video on ourselves finishing one packet EACH. No sharing whatsoever okay. Continue scrolling down to watch our time-lapse video okay?
EACH GETS ONE FULL PACKET. EACH ONE NEEDS TO FINISH ALL.
That was our challenge.
Let's see how it goes okay.
Korean Fire Noodle for two persons please :)
Challenge yourself and put all the paste into the noodle okay.
Pour/Scoop/Put/Squeeze the paste into the noodles (boiled and water drained out) and mix well.
Dinner for two.
He says: First, Sarah is such a noob in eating spicy stuff! kekeke! =p But really, this one hurts my tongue real bad and made my lips feels like it got stung by a bee. Like most Korean instant noodle, the texture of the noodle is really springy! The spiciness tortures you slowly as you eat, burning you as you feed. Love this thing! Must try!
She says: Let me first start by describing the noodle. It's thick kind of instant noodle that is NOT THE SAME as any of our local instant noodles. It's springy and quite chewy in a good way. It's very yummy okay. When you smell the cooked dish, it instantly projects certain signal to your brain that makes you salivate. No kidding! It smells really good and not that spicy surprisingly. The first mouth in and I was like, "Oh, okaylah. Not that spicy also!" By my third mouth, my eyes were already tearing up and my nose started to be stuffy. If you know me well enough, you would know that I can take spicy stuff, like I enjoy cili padi in my rice for dinner kind of spicy. But this one, this one is just pure madness. I've never NEVER eaten anything that could make me actually cry during the eating process. Ohh and I wanted to give up halfway through. That's how spicy it was. Of course I finished the whole thing because cannot lose to Adrian Koay. Heh. I love the taste but at the end, it got too spicy to even enjoy the taste of it. VERY VERY SPICY LIKE THE CRAZY TORTURING KIND BUT SUPER YUMMY. You all should make this a must-do/try in your bucket list.
This fire noodle, not a joke.
We did not have any lipstick, lip balm or lip gloss on our lips okay. The redness on our lips is also not because of the sauce from the noodles. We wiped our mouth super clean and still, it was THAT red and a bit puffy.
He took less than five minutes to finish his bowl and she took close to 10 minutes.
Special shoutout to LOTD Clothing for their comfortable top (the one he is wearing in the video) that makes sweating not a pain in the behinds. It's definitely one of our favorite to wear now!
