This is why the En Eats editorial team decided to compare spicy cup noodles and review them on a scale of 1 to 5 (according to En Eats).
This time, we prepared three types of noodles: "Spicy Cup Noodle Red Curry," "Mongolian Tanmen Nakamoto," and "Nissin's Tongarashi Noodles Geki-niku Kaisen Flavor.
I tried the "Dry Cup Noodle Red Curry".
Let's start with the least violent package, " Spicy Cup Noodle Red Curry ".
The moment you open the lid, the strong aroma of spices hits your nose. The smooth soup is a reddish brown color, which is not typical of curry.
I take a sip of the hot soup. It's spicy, but on the level of "medium hot" curry rice. The pork, potatoes, carrots, and other ingredients in the soup help to neutralize the spiciness of the spices. The spiciness level is 3.
I tried " Mongolian Tanmen Nakamoto".
Next, I tried "Mongolian Tanmen Nakamoto," which many of you may have eaten in stores before.
It seems to be eaten by adding the spicy oil that comes separately. When you tear open the sachet, you'll find a thick, bright red oil...!
The ingredients include tofu, vegetables such as cabbage and carrots, pork, and kikurage. The quality of the product is so high that it is hard to believe it is a cup noodle. The thick, spicy soup that gets stuck in the noodles and the spicy steam that flows into your mouth along with the noodles will start burning your body from the inside out.
... Ah, it's hot. Sweat began to bead up on my forehead. I wondered if it was the concentrated flavor of the soup or the chewy noodles that kept my chopsticks going. I was tempted to drink up every last drop. The spiciness level was set to 4.
I tried "Nissin's Tongarashi Noodles Geki-Spicy Seafood Flavor".
Finally, I tried "Nissin's Tonkaraashi Noodles Gekiso Kaisen Flavor," which already has a sharp aroma from the package.
Three minutes after pouring hot water into the bowl. When you open the lid, you see the bright red soup. It's quite a violent visual, but what does it taste like?
I was expecting the soup to be thick, but it was surprisingly light.
First of all, I tried drinking the soup without adding the "super spicy oil" that comes separately. The spiciness is about the same as that of "Mongolian Tanmen Nakamoto". When I took a bite of the noodles, the more I chewed, the more the spiciness filled my mouth.
Finally, I added the "super spicy oil" and drank the soup.
It's spicy! And it's the kind that comes on later! My throat hurts...! However, the seafood flavor is still there. When I ate the noodles, the hot and spicy soup gave them an even more stimulating taste. I start to sweat... But I can't stop... It's spicy, but I can't stop. ......!
By the way, if you slurp down the noodles with all your might at the first bite, there is a pretty high probability that you will choke, so be careful. The highest spiciness level is 5.
The spiciness of "Tongarashi Noodle" is one of the highest in the world of cup noodles.
The spiciness of "Nissin's Tongarashi Men Gekkou Kaisen Flavor" with "Super Spicy Oil" may not be as spicy as other hot ramen restaurants, but I think it is the spiciest cup noodle you can enjoy.
All of the En-eating staff who tasted it this time said, "It's spicy, but it's addictive! They couldn't stop themselves from taking the next bite. The chili peppers warmed up our bodies and seemed to improve our metabolism. If you like spicy food, you should definitely give this a try.
