I tried 'Cup Noodle Rich Spicy Seafood Kimchi Chige', which has a great combination of the rich umami of seafood and the spicy kimchi flavor, and is very appetizing.

Nissin Foods has added ' Cup Noodle Rich Spicy Seafood Kimchi Chige ' to its 'World Cup Noodle' series, which features dishes from around the world arranged in a cup noodle style, on Monday, May 13, 2024. It is said that the umami of seafood, the spiciness of chili peppers, and the sourness of kimchi have been moderately combined to create a 'rich and spicy' taste, so I tried eating it to see what kind of cup noodle it was.

The package for 'Cup Noodle Rich Spicy Seafood Kimchi Chige' looks like this.

Looking at the names of the ingredients, the soup contains clam seasoning, miso seasoning, lard,

fish sauce , oyster sauce, and niboshi powder, while the toppings contain Chinese cabbage kimchi, squid, seasoned eggs, red chili peppers, and garlic.

Each piece contains 336kcal.

When you open the lid of the cup, you can see soup powder and ingredients on top of the dried noodles.

Pour hot water up to the dotted line inside and wait 3 minutes.

Wait 3 minutes and it's done. When you open the lid, the mouthwatering aroma of kimchi and seafood wafts out.

When you take a sip of the clear soup, you'll taste just the right amount of saltiness and the spicy kick of the chili peppers, and the rich, umami flavor of the clam base will slowly seep into your mouth.

The thin, curly noodles mix well with the soup, making for a perfect match. The more you sip, the warmer your body will feel. It's not overly spicy, but the small chili peppers that come into your mouth along with the soup and noodles give it a constant tingling sensation, so if you don't like spicy food, you should be careful.

The crunchy texture of the naturally sour Chinese kimchi, the chewy squid, and the seasoned eggs that have absorbed the soup well all bring out the flavor of the jjigae, resulting in a high-quality seafood kimchi jjigae-style cup noodle.
