  • My name's Douglas Kim, owner and chef at Jeju Noodle Bar.

  • I've been working in the restaurant industry for 19 years.

  • Today, I have a privilege to taste instant ramens.

  • Wow, smells very familiar, but it's not in a good way.

  • The color looks very...

  • I don't remember when the last time I actually had this.

  • Very, very watery.

  • Flavor wise, very, very commercial.

  • Very instant flavor.

  • To be honest with you, I don't even know if this is tastes like a chicken or not.

  • 1 star.

  • I respect the people who created this ramen. That's why I gave them one star.

  • Uh huh, already looks a little more complicated.

  • I see the black garlic oil.

  • Smells a little more refined.

  • Not bad.

  • Noodle is a little more skinnier, slightly softer, but in a good way.

  • Still full of MSG flavor.

  • Very umami.

  • But actually, I was pretty surprised.

  • Tastes not bad.

  • I clearly enjoyed this one.

  • 2.5 star.

  • This one is very familiar.

  • Actually, it smells not that good though.

  • Damn, spicy.

  • Oh my god.

  • It's really spicy.

  • It's too spicy that I don't taste anything else.

  • Noodle wise, this is the so far best.

  • It has more chew to it.

  • Taste is a little too spicy for me.

  • I have a limit to take in a certain spice level.

  • This one, I give it 2.5, too.

  • Wow.

  • It has a more body in the broth.

  • Noodle itself is a lot thicker.

  • Noodles are very nice.

  • I taste a little less MSG.

  • Broth is more richer.

  • It's sticking into the noodles.

  • Looks like a proper ramen.

  • It's pretty good quality around it.

  • It's pretty close to, yeah, just regular ramen.

  • If you give it to someone else, you can probably fake it.

  • 3 star.

  • Smells nice, smells very instant.

  • Good smell of MSG.

  • Not bad.

  • Pretty sweet.

  • Actually, I like this.

  • When I went to military school, almost 20 years ago, I remember Indonesian students would always buy that.

  • We swapped noodles.

  • Very flavorful.

  • It's not really pleasant looking, but taste is good.

  • Noodle texture is good, too.

  • Flavor is very nice.

  • 3 I would say.

  • I really liked it.

  • Instant noodle in general is very convenient for many people.

  • Myself too, you know.

  • But when you at least go to a real ramen restaurant, everything comes from scratch.

  • And definitely when you actually eat a fresh ramen, it's kind of hard to go back to instant ramen.

  • That's why we recommend you to go to real ramen restaurant and try real ramen.

  • Smell is not that spicy, but, actually, I take it back.

  • I gotta itchy hair right now.

  • Oh my god.
