My Favorite Korean Ramyeon (Ramen)

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.

  1. You’re a Filipino right? It maybe because we tend to read cheese with an [s] sound, while in English it’s really more of a [z] sound. Thus in Korea, they use the ㅈ instead of ㅅ. The sound of ㅈ in Korean phonology is the closest to the [z] sound, while in Filipino phonology, we don’t have the [z] sound, we also don’t have the [ㅈ] sound, thus the closest we have for [z] is the [s] sound, thus we read cheese with an [s] sound.
    Are they really not selling this anywhere in the Philippines? I would love to try this one after reading your post. I usually make my own Cheese Ramyeon by putting cheese on a regular Shin Ramyeon.

    1. Hi Ted! Thanks for this. I blogged about this product because I super like it 🙂 I have answered the survey link you sent but I am only familiar with Cheese Ramyeon and not the Tukk Bokki product. I hope this product becomes available here in the Philippines because there are other Ottogi product on popular supermarkets here. Thanks.
