Paldo Volcano Chicken Curry Instant Noodles Review

So I got this from my grandma, because for some reason she thought I’d like it. Well, I do like trying different noodles, so she wasn’t wrong.

Thus I got this.

And since I knew I hadn’t had this before, I should try right away.

There was a sauce and of course, sesame seeds inside, apart from the noodles.

Also, one instruction said that onions and garlic would make it better, so I decided to add them into this.

What I had to do was stir the cooked noodles with the sauce and seven spoons of some of the water for half a minute.

So I prepared the onion, shallot, and garlic for a bit before adding the cooked noodles, sauce, and extra water into the mix.

Then, voila. Magic happened.

Except that it wasn’t really magical.

I have always had some problems with paldo, in that it is a bit sweet for me. I’m not much of a fan of sweet noodles, so I don’t go for it too often.

This one was somewhat sweet, and I could blame the onion for it, but I believed it was actually the sauce.

It was hot and spicy though, and my lips went Kylie Jenner mode for a bit. So that one easy lip filler magic worked.

But I wouldn’t go for this again the next time, that is for sure.

For those of you who are a fan of Paldo, I’d suggest the usual buldak. This one didn’t even smell half as inviting.

And for spicy curry, I’d recommend Samyang instead. That one smelled divine.

This one is 6/10. Portion wise it was filling, and I appreciated the effort in exploring varieties. However, this really isn’t something I’d come back for the next time. Once was enough.
