Instant Noodle with Cheese


If you watched Korean drama or Korean variety shows, you would probably noticed that they added a slice of cheese in their instant noodle or Korean rice noodle.  At first when I saw it, I was like what was that that they put into the instant noodle, then I realized that it was a piece of cheese.  That was mind blowing for me, cheese in spicy kimchi soup??  I was really curious especially those who tasted it all said it was good.  So, my curiosity got better of me and I bought Korean kimchi instant noodle and my American cheese and decided to give it a try.


To increase nutrition, I added seaweed and an egg.  By the way, the Korean instant noodle was like Taiwanese instant noodle made without preservatives and with all natural ingredients.  So, after I finished cooking, I pour it into a bowl and then top with a piece of American cheese.  When the cheese started to melt like the above picture, I stir to mix it well into the soup.

My verdict:  it actually tasted delicious, the soup when mixed it well together was richer and thicker with the fragrant of cheese.  Thumb up from me!  Try it yourself to believe it!  :-)

Thanks for putting up this post. I also have my instant noodles with cheese and this is in my "backlog post". I don't know this is from Korean show, my cousin taught me.

Happy new year to you!

think of mac n cheese. It's also 'noodle'.

I put cheese for the kids in their noodle, rice or carbo dishes to increase the protein level.

I have not added cheese to instant noodles before but I know about it. Some even add a slice or two into curry, and claimed to be delicious.

Should try it in instant noodles soon. ;p

Hmm, I never noticed them adding cheese to the ramen when I watch. I'll have to look for that next time. But it sounds like a good combination!

This kinda sounds like something I'd try. I sometimes mix spicy things with processed (American) cheese. I'll need to try that the next time I find kimchi instant noodles.
