Funny but with my last visit to Seoul, I took home 3 packs of this containing 4 noodles each. I really did not mind the space it will eat from my baggage allowance because this is not available back in my home town. I discovered this noodles during my 2010 visit. At that time, Nikhun of 2PM was endorsing this noodles. I bought a pack and regretted just buying one. I super love the cheese flavor and average spiciness of the noodles.
치즈 라면 (Cheese Ramyeon) is something that i only found in South Korea. I haven’t seen one from Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau or Taiwan. I think 오뚜기 (Ottogi) is the only noodle company that carries this noodle flavor. I am not sure about this but when i went to Lotte, I have not seen any other brands with cheese flavor. I enjoy eating this with soda crackers. I also love that the noodles is slightly thicker than the usual brand of noodles in our local market.
Cheese is spelled 치즈 in Korean. Sometimes i wonder why it was not spelled 치스 (cheeseu) in my opinion this is nearer to the pronunciation of cheese. Nevertheless 치즈 라면 is worth a try, I wish the Korean stores here start to include this in their product line.
