1. Mami Deepak Spicy Fried Chicken Noodles
If you’re not sure if you can stand the ghost pepper heat, there are still Daebak Spicy Fried Chicken Noodles to try! This pasta is meant to be dry, making it the perfect snack to gorge on when you crave a quick snack. Those who have tried it have compared the taste of Boldak Samyang Chicken – but without it being overwhelmingly spicy! 😉 However, it’s even popular in Korea – Super Junior’s Heechul even mentioned it during a TV show! website
2. Mami Deepak Spicy Kimchi Noodles
Credit: zareena_ariffin on Instagram The latest flavor in Daebak’s line is Spicy Kimchi Noodle, which is comparable to Shin Ramyun Nongshim or most other kimchi-flavored instant noodles on the market. Like spicy fried chicken, it retains this delicious spice without being too pedas to hang.
Kimchi is one of the classic flavors when it comes to Korean-style instant noodles – and Daebak tastes perfect! Gochujang is used in this which gives it a slightly sweet flavor. 😊website
3. Very spicy samyang noodles with spicy chicken flavour
Credit: yang_yangg on Instagram The number one Korean instant noodles you can get practically everywhere right now is going to be Samyang Spicy Korean Noodles! If you haven’t tried one, don’t wait anymore 😃 Korean Samyang Noodles started out with spicy flavor only being halal, but good news! Noodles come in a variety of flavors now 😌website
4. Samyang 2X Spicy Chicken Flavor Ramen
Credit: @goodie_foodie_food on Instagram She claims it’s twice as hot as Samyang Korean Noodles, it guarantees you’ll become a fire-breathing dragon like a Dragon in Games of Thrones 😋 I mean, the only thing you’ll burn while eating is your tongue! But if you feel up to the challenge, this spicier version will surely rock your taste buds. You have been warned! website
5. Samyang Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen Stew Type
The packaging may look similar to the Samyang 2X Spicy above, but the Samyang Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen Stew Type is perfect for instant noodle lovers who can’t stay away from warm soups! Credit: shikinn_ismaill on Instagram Just like other Samyang flavors, they are described as spicy and flavorful. Plus, it comes with spring noodles for a satisfying flavour! Since every bowl of pasta tastes better with an egg, don’t think twice about increasing the taste. 🥲website
6. Samyang Cheese Flavored Spicy Chicken Ramen
Samyang cheese ramen flavor combines our two favorite flavors – ramen and cheese! What more could you ask for, really? Some foodies even add more cheese to their pasta. Talk about going the extra mile! At first, I wasn’t quite sure what the spicy taste and salty flavor of the cheese would taste when mixed together, but I was pleasantly surprised! You have to try this 😁website
7. Samyang spicy chicken curry with ramen flavor
If you are a curry lover, this is perfect for you! It retains the delicious spicy chicken flavor of Samyang but with the addition of curry. It’s the fusion that adds sophistication to the overall taste of ramen. This one is spicier than regular Samyang though. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! 😊website
8. Samyang So Tah Ramen
Samyang’s version of Su Tah Ramen consists of chewy noodles that taste like handmade noodles! Like the other noodles in the Samyang range, it’s also spicy, so prepare a can of milk before digging into this? This may sound like typical Samyang noodles, but you will taste the difference in noodles once you try them! Prepare yourself for potential second meals 😆website
9. Samyang Kimchi Ramen
Credit: @newrulekpop94 on Instagram, next on the Samyang line is Ramen Kimchi. As the name suggests, it is of course flavored with kimchi. This is probably the closest you can get instant noodles to authentic Korean kimchi 😊 If you’re a big fan of spicy sauerkraut, you can even buy tubs of kimchi nowadays at the grocery store to pair it with ramen! While you’re at it, you may eat as well as Korean through and through. website
10. Samyang Yukgaejang Hot Mushroom Flavor
Credit: @jastip_cincai on Instagram On a cold, rainy night, there’s nothing like a bowl of Samyang Yukgaejang to keep us warm. Also known as spicy beef soup in Korean, Yukgaejang’s version will hit the right spot with its subtle flavor of shredded beef. Similar to most instant noodles, it is served plain. Besides having a late-night snack, put in a few green onions and steak and you’ll taste even better. He always does 😃website
11. Samyang Carbo Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen
Did anyone else initially think that the “carbs” in Samyang Carbo Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen meant carbohydrates? Well, maybe just us. Fortunately, we were wrong because they were talking about cream carbonara! 😁 A fresh spin from their popular range of spicy ramen, it has been described as a mixture of sweet, spicy and creamy. It makes you curious enough to try it, doesn’t it? Add some mushrooms and seafood, and you’ve got something delicious to eat while you’re staying up late at midnight for football. website
12. Samyang Jjajang Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen (Korean Black Bean Sauce)
Samyang Jjajang Hot Chicken Flavor comes highly recommended by one of our readers! It comes with a small packet of Korean black bean sauce powder, mix it well and you will get a shiny and delicious layer of the famous jajang! While most of us enjoy Samyang Jjajang as is, we recommend packing your noodles with liquid eggs or seaweed for something extra. Just try not to wake your parents with a loud groan 😆website
13. Samyang Bulgogi Ramen
If you are craving for fried noodles, you can definitely try Samyang’s Bulgogi Ramen! Bulgogi has a smoky and delicious flavor similar to what you’d expect from barbecue. Follow their serving suggestion and top with crunchy vegetables and beef steak. website
14. Samyang Jjajang Ramen
Jjajangmyeon is very popular in Korean dramas and reality shows. If you’re curious what it tastes like, buy a can of Samyang’s Jjajang Ramen. Described as Chinese-style Korean noodles, they are covered in a black bean sauce that is said to be both sweet and savory. website
15. Nongshim Shin Ramyun
Another favorite brand is Nongshim Shin Ramyun. The brand’s Korean noodles are also hot and a worthy competitor to the Samyang line. So be prepared for some heat on your taste buds! 😁#HHWT tip: There are a number of different packaging for Nongshim Shin Ramyun, which are imported by many countries, including the USA, China and Hong Kong. So be sure to check that the version you’re buying has a halal symbol, like in the first picture! website
16. Nongshim Kimchi Ramyun
Another long-time favorite, Kimchi Ramyun may look similar to Shin Ramyun at first, but there is a stronger taste of kimchi in stock. Kimchi is one of the most popular products in Korea, and we can vouch that it tastes great in the form of instant noodles too! To really get the full taste of ramyun, add some store-bought cabbage or kimchi radish as toppings to bring out that acidity! If it seems too sour, add a little sugar and some green onions to balance it out.
17. Nongshim Neoguri Spicy Seafood Udon
Neoguri has actually been around since 1982, and now there’s a halal certified version too (certified by Majelis Ulama Indonesia in Indonesia)! It is unique from other Nongshin products in that the udon noodles are thicker and chewy than regular ramen, hence the name ‘udon’. 😃 However, the seafood base makes for a delicious meal – add some prawns or squid and you’ll have dinner! It even comes with adorable raccoon fish cakes that are the brand’s mascot!
18. Nongshim Soon Veggie Ramyun Gourmet Mild Noodle Soup
It’s time to see vegan-friendly instant noodles in our local supermarkets. Nongshim Soon Veggie Ramyun is perfect for anyone who prefers a late-night snack except for the delicious flavors. Credit: maymphim on Instagram Nongshim Soon Veggie Ramyun contains bits and pieces of dried choy sum and carrots plus garlic powder, ginger, and green onions. Despite the mild spice, this ramen is said to have a deep brothy flavor. So you should definitely try this vegan-friendly pasta! website
19. Samyang Hot Pepper Jjajang Ramen

Samyang’s Hot Pepper Jjajang is a charcoal grilled delight that’s hot, sweet and delicious. Mixes strong spices Cheongyang Gochu (Korean green chili pepper) and a unique jjajang flavor with a hint of seafood.

20. Samyang Hot Pepper Jjamppong

Pepper seems to be making a solid foothold in the ramen field, and we all support him! Samyang’s Hot Pepper Jjamppong is as delicious as it is spicy. The cat here may seem inoffensive and expressionless, but we promise the level of spice is far from keeping you cool, when you’re burning on the inside! Don’t worry, it’s the kind of delicious spice you’ll still want to eat more of. Beat this noodles hard with their dried addition Cheongyang Gochu Flakes and seafood flavor.
