Great Tasting, Fairly Spicy, But Watch Serving Size - Recommended,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nong Shim Bowl Noodle, Hot and Spicy, 3.03-Ounce Bowls (Pack of 12) (Grocery)
These Nong Shim "Bowl Noodle, Hot and Spicy" bowls are very good tasting and a little over the medium range of the spicy hot range. The spiciness is about right right for me, but no one else in my house can handle these.
While they can not be directly microwaved, these are easy enough to prepare by following the directions. All you have to do is pull the cover halfway up, open and add the contents of the flavor packet, add hot water, and let it sit for three minutes.
My only concern about these is that the nutritional information lists the serving size is listed as 1/2 the bowl (didn't notice that before we ordered them), which means you have to double the values if you eat the whole thing. A whole bowl then contains 380 Calories, 50 Carbs (too much for me), and 78% of your total daily recommended Sodium. I get around this by braking and removing half of the dry noodle bunch before adding the hot water.

I love these bowls as well, but just so you know, most of the sodium resides in the flavor packet! Maybe cut that in half as well -- thats what i generally do, even for a whole bowl of noodles. Hope this helps, Happy eating!

actually either that or you just don't drink too much of the soup. the SOUP contains the most of the sodium, etc. as long as you don't drink all of the soup(the salt is usually mostly at bottom by the way), it should be better because the noodles themselves have way less.

Fair points, but keep in mind that the noodles are cooked in oil in order to make them soften quickly in hot water. This means that they have a higher caloric value than you might expect. Reducing the broth will cut down on the sodium intake, but reducing the amount of noodles you eat will have a major impact on the caloric an carb (important for diabetics) values.

Another idea is keep some freeze dried vegi's around and split the contents in the noodle bowl in two. Then add a few spoons of freeze dried peas or even carrots or corn or mixed vegi's back in to both halves of noodles. Split the flavor and full of salt packet add the regular amount of hot water and away you go. I have menieres and have to watch my salt intake so one thing I've had to do is skip this kind of product but do enjoy a splurge once in a while. I enjoy the sweetness added freeze dried vegi's add to the soup as well as know it helps cut the calories though not all the carbs as vegi's themselves are carbs just healthy ones. Hope that helps or gives some of you ideas too. I also like to add super hot garlic chili sauce to these soups. But have to check their sodium levels to see if that adds too much back in. (Freeze dried fruits and vegi's can be found on Amazon too as well as google...some are down right inexpensive.)
