Filipinos try out the mild to extreme levels of spiciness of the Korean Ramen

by | Lifestyle

Korean culture has taken the Filipinos by storm – from the highly sought-after K-drama series to the catchy tunes and beats of Kpop songs. TFT Lifestyle TV tries one of Korea’s most popular delicacies, their Korean Spicy Ramen Challenge!

Round 1: Mild

Ottogi’s Mild Jin Ramen gives an optimal level of spiciness for those who are unaccustomed or don’t really like spicy food in general, but wish to have a quick taste of the spiciness that Koreans usually have for their ramen. The spiciness kicks in once you swallow the warm soup and the thick ramen noodles and doesn’t linger for long as the spicy sensation fades quickly.

Arun Shroff, Director at Hygenix General Trading that brought Ottogi in the UAE says that one of the primary reasons why Filipinos and other nationalities love Ottogi’s selections of Ramens is because of the wide variety of authentic flavors that each of their ramen flavors provides. “Unlike other standard flavors like chicken, prawn, or plain seafood, Korean Ramen offers something more authentic. There are different unique flavors which attracts the palate,” said Shroff.

Round 2: Spicy

Ottogi’s Spicy Jin Ramen gives a manageable spicy kick that lingers in your mouth for a bit longer than the mild version. The level of spiciness is ideal for those who frequently love spicy food as the rich flavor of the broth is infused with the noodles that complements the overall sensation of spiciness with each sip and bite of the noodle.

Shroff furthers that Ottogi fulfills the need of Filipinos and expats alike as they search for ‘comfort food’. “When you had a long day, a rough day and you come back home and you want to eat something nice and comforting, that’s what Ottogi offers,” adds Shroff.

Round 3: Yeul (Spiciest)

Ottogi’s spiciest ramen – the Yeul Ramen comes out as ‘the Spiciest Ramen ever’ and for a good reason. While the initial taste will not be so spicy, it kicks in as you gulp in the broth and noodles as if the spiciness never left your mouth and throat. The burning sensation continues as you eat more servings of the Yeul ramen that will leave you in beads of sweat on your foreheads.

Shroff mentions that Ottogi’s quality gives a premium feel to the ramen experience. “As you eat the noodle, you’ll notice that the quality of the noodle is chewy and tasty. You’ll notice that the broth or soup is spicy but doesn’t give you too much of a kick and it really makes you feel good. Ottogi also has Jjampong which is really popular with the Filipinos, Spicy Cheese Ramen, Black Bean Sauce and more,” explains Shroff.

Ottogi is available at Carrefour, Spinneys, Choithrams, West Zone, 7-11, Souq.com and more stores in the UAE. For more information, you may also check out their social media pages: Ottogi UAE.
