    This soup is amazing…While I’m not quite positive that I love the ‘sul-long-tang’ story, I do love this soup. I am a huge fan of ramen noodles and of the Nongshim brand ‘ramyun’ noodle. However, I took a shot in the dark with this Black line. The soup is a great soup, it tastes very similar to the Nongshim Gourmet Spicy ramyun. However, it’s a tad bit less spicy, due to (my estimation) the added base (ox bone stew) and additional vegetable package. I originally purchased this package because I thought that the Black line signified that it was premium ‘ramyun’ package. However, it appears that this is not the case, while there are more veggies, the ‘premium’ connotation does not overly portray itself in this packaged. It’s truly a different soup.Is it worth the premium over the gourmet spicy? I would say, for an every now & then buy, sure! But to replace my subscription to the Gourmet Spicy line, no way!I survived on Maruchan ramen for 6 years of my life. While going through school, I knew nothing more than ramen. So needless to say, part Japanese or not, I rely upon ramen noodles. However, after stumbling upon the Nongshim Gourmet Spicy noodles, I’ve never looked back. I am certain that my local Oriental Mart has paid it’s mortgage solely upon my Gourmet Spicy purchase order. However, Amazon to the rescue…now my normal subscription is a case of Gourmet Spicy every 2 months. A case of the Spicy Seafood Udon noodle every 3-4 months. To this I have added, a case of these sul-long-tang Black noodles every 5-6 months. This evens out my ability to consume Nongshim Ramyun on a normal schedule. Overall, as great as these ‘black’ noodles are, the best part is that I can eat the noodles w/out squinting the entire time I consume them, due to the lack of fear that revolves around eating the Gourmet Spicy noodles splashing into my eye socket. I swear, I’d rather get another vasectomy than get more Gourmet Spicy broth in my eye.

    I love spicy food, so when my girlfriend told me about this, I took the gamble and bought a box – boy am I glad! 🙂 Without a doubt this is my favorite ramen out there – the noodles are great, and the flavor packs (there are 3) are also perfect (although I only use 2 of the 3, I skip the mushrooms and vegetables). The serving size is bigger than Nissin ramen packs, but more in line with what you find from normal Asian ramens – but one package is the perfect size for a meal as opposed to the Nissin ones which always leave me wanting more. If I have one complaint about this ramen, it’s that it has almost 2000mg sodium – but in terms of ramen, that’s pretty much par for the course. So if you love spicy foods, give this a shot!

    I was introduced to Korean noodles last year after one of my students noticed I was eating the “cheap” kind of ramen from the local grocery store; the price of which has steadily been going up since I first had them in college. He suggested I try the local Asian food market, and I picked up several varieties of Nongshim and others. I tried many different styles of Nongshim ramyun but the black version stood out as the clear winner. My kids love it. They say it has the perfect degree of spice. Although what they really meant was that it was near their limit of hotness. The combination of the two soup bases give the noodles a very creamy flavor. The dried vegetables and meat are excellent and add to the general acceptance of this product.

    • Subject: outstanding flavor, no MSG added, slightly lower sodium

    I have enjoyed nong shim’s flavorful ramyun offerings for 10 years now. I only recently saw their Black label product and hesitantly indulged as it was $2 a pack. Worth it for me. I think I like it a little better than their classic “gourmet spicy” and am now subscribing for a case every 6 months. It has beef and beef bone flavorings, perhaps an acquired taste, but they are well executed for an instant product. It’s less piquant than the “gourmet spicy” classic flavor, but very rich in taste thanks to the beef bone extract and other seasonings. If you like nong shim’s gourmet spicy, you’ll probably like this. I like pork bone ramen (Tonkotsu) and really like this as it has the same milky richness in the broth. I am excited that it’s relatively lower sodium (920mg per serving=half pack) than most similar products and apparently has no added MSG… with so much flavor they apparently don’t MSG or so much salt. *edit- to other folks that prefer gourmet spicy… I agree that is a classic but enjoyed these more: very good broth especially, less heat but more rich flavor than gourmet spicy. The lack of sumptuous hunks of freeze dried beef doesn’t bother me, I’ll garnish mine with whatever I have in the fridge. I’m disappointed amazon has raised the price somewhat, a case was about $10 cheaper in December. If you’re hesitant, try a single pack at your local Korean grocer before you get a case.

    I roomed with a Korean buddy in college and he showed me all the good ramen at an Asian grocery store on campus. I’d like to believe I tried this one first, but I’m sure he had connections to get this way before I had. Heavily spiced and big on the garlic, this great Nongshim addition thoroughly trounces the original Shin Spicy version in terms of flavor balance and overall quality. Probably the best instant noodle one can buy, and it shows in the price. If you liked the original, don’t hesitate.

    I subscribe for this Ramen and get more every couple months, but honestly, it is not that much better than the non-“premium” shin ramen. You get a few more flavor packets which are nice, but probably not worth the extra money in the end. But hey, it’s still a $2 meal and it fills me up, so it’s not a horrible value.

    Was recommended by a friend. Spicy but good. It’s a huge serving enough for someone big like me. Packaging was ok. Surprised to see it was made in the USA. Now if I can just find the best condiments to add to it, that would be perfect. Recommended buy because I heard the red version of this is spicier.

    so I am pretty accustomed to the regular nong shim red and was slightly taken a back by the ‘pricier’ deluxe black label. My friend told me to try, and since I take her word – I gave it a whirl.i had it last night, and was quite pleased. both my boyfriend and I ate the entire thing. it was nice and creamy (not clam chowder thick, but not basic boring broth either). the ONLY reason why it’s not 5 stars is because it was a TAD too spicy, but not unbearable. i will be getting more, and saving these for special occasions 😉

    Great Ramen. Poach an egg or two in it and you’re good to go.
