Shin Ramen

Picture from Nongshim Ramen.

Min Young brought some ramen for me when she visited Malaysia, Shin Ramen products. But I couldn't eat it as I found there is 돈지(돼지고기) in the ingredient. I know what is 돼지고기 dwaejigogi - pork, but I don't know what is 돈지. So, I brought all the ramen and gave it to Yong Soo when we studied Korean. He told me that 돈지 is pork bone. I asked him whether I could eat Korean ramen at all and he said I'd better not as he is pretty sure that all type of ramen in Korea has traces of pork in it. Check the ingredient list here.

This is Bibimmyon. Like bibimbap but bap/밥 is rice and 면/myon is instant noodle. 비비다 / bibida means mix or rub together. So, naturally 비빔면 means mixed instant noodle. ^^ This one also has traces of pork in the seasoning/sauce although it is not stated in the web as in here but I found it behind the packaging.

Just fyi, if you could read the ingredient list, it stated 팜유(말레이시아산), 팜유 / pamyoo means palm oil and 말레이시아 / Malleisia is Malaysia. I guess 말레이시아산 means 말레이시아산업개발청 - Malaysia Industrial Development Authority?

It seems it is very difficult to find something to quell hunger if you can't eat even ramen :)

Still I am truly supporting ur decision to return Korea for a new start.

Aja Aja, Fighting !!! :))

tteok tu diorg buat ada letak alcohol ke? sbb sy t'jumpa instant tteokbokki dkt jusco. dkt ingredient tteok ada tulis alcohol.

minta pendapat akak ^^

thanks for the info. really helpful. another ingredient that we might wanna be careful with is 주정 - alcohol of sort. i recently found that most 고추장 - red pepper paste - sold at supermarket here in msia contains it =(

@littlenailofar / jaja,

tteok itself x de alcohol, but tteokbokki sauce is made with gojuchang, which most probably where the alcohol comes from.

Hi Idatul,
Biasa akak tukar siap2 dekat Malaysia je, sebab dekat Korea akak pernah tukar duit korean won to USD sebab nak pegi Manila. Tak pernah pulak tukar duit RM ke won dkat sana.
Zarina BT2K said…
Hi Jaja,
To add up to Nabe's comment. Tteok is made from rice so no alcohol.

How the alcohol came about in Gochujang sauce? It's from fermentation process. Which we might not be able to know how much is the alcohol content.

Sama macam tapai or tempe yang kena ferment to get the result.

@ nabe & kak zarina

translation ingredients yg diorg lekat tu ada tulis alcohol kalau tak silap sy. nanti kalau b'kesempatan sy snap gambar.

ada lg satu kes, sy jumpa dkt isetan, chilli paste yang jual dlm tupperware merah brand apa entah, translation ingredients dia pun ada alcohol jugak.

sebab benda tu instant food ke, so diorg add in alcohol?

nway tq nabe and akak.

selamat hari raya!

As-salam, just nak kongsi, since qera pun confuse sket bab alcohol dlm makanan ni, sbb dulu penah baca kalo alcohol yg digunakan dlm bahan makanan utk tujuan bg makanan tu tahan lama, tak ada masalah utk makan, dan utk tujuan mcm ni rasanya jumlah alcohol yg digunakan tidak ke tahap yg boleh menyebabkan mabuk. Mcm alcohol dlm minyak wangi, juga tak memabukkan. Kalo alcohol yg terhasil dr fermentation tak tahu la pulak.

Nak tny kak Zarina, ada beza ke kalo kte replace chilli paste dgn chilli powder? Kalo chilli powder plak, halal tak?

Salam, gojuchang tu halal tak. Ada alcohol dr fermentation process kn. Berapa percent alcohol dalam tu? Thanks.
