Continuing the trek through the May 2015 Ramen Box, we have this Cheese Ramyun from Paldo. The idea of cheese ramen sounds a bit odd at first, but I don't know why it would be that much different than some other kind of cheese soup (like that awesome broccoli and cheese soup from Panera Bread). Also, we had a good experience from the domestic Cheddar Cheese Chow Noodles, so I don't know why a 'soup' version of cheese ramen woudn't work just as well.
Jin Ramen Mild that also came in this month's box. The cheese powder seems to be the same stuff that comes in a box of macaroni and cheese, and is a bit clumpy at first, but eventually I get it stirred in, at which point the noodles are ready to serve!
I liked this one quite a bit as well! I'm enjoying the more balanced flavors that I've been experiencing with the products that came in this Ramen Box; this one has the creaminess that I enjoy when I add an egg to a Korean 'hot' ramyun, but as a different variation with the extra tanginess that comes from the cheese--it's actually somewhere in between the egg and my sweetie's idea of adding sour cream to Shin Ramyun. My opinion of Korean ramen has gone up after trying these products; I don't think I had realized there was this much variety. I could see myself getting this one again as well! :)
My sweetie did mention that she thought a soft egg could have gone well also--further experiments will clearly be necessary. ^_^
