In one of my favorite internet shows ‘Ian is Bored’ series, he always gets packages from his fans abroad. The boxes are always full with unexpected things from other countries, like own drawings, weird snacks, weird stickers, weird mask, and weird international food as well, of course. He eats in his show, dances, talks, opens his packages(gifts from his fans),, He’s doing a lot of stuff! And people like it!
Well, as a huge fan of Ian, I know I talked about his show too much here. Let me take off to the main topic for today right now!
<Oh, this is Ian, sorry Ian, if it’s a problem to use your picture here, let me know!>
Youtube video of foreign people trying Korean hot-spicy noodle is So Hot these days. Yes it tastes HOT, literally HOT, and super hot on people’s phone screen and laptop. BulDakBokUmMyeon(불닭볶음면), FIRE NOODLE(Flaming Chicken Fried Noodle, in Korean), there it is.
Korean people usually enjoy spicy food most of the days, and they never get tired of it. Korean spicy is quite different with Mexican or any western food spicy. That makes one reason it’s fun/funny to watch these Non-Korean people try flaming chicken fried noodle, suffering from food pain. I, as a Korean, say Korean spicy food is really lovable, all the people over the world might get to love it easily, too. I can draw up a list of my favorite spicy food here all day long, though, let me super concentrate on this Fire Noodle.
Fire Noodle(Flaming Chicken Fried Noodle, in Korean).
Does it look good? Tempting? Yeah it does!
It is not only spicy but also (let me use this expression for this Korean sense of taste-word) ‘butt-hurt : you want it more but you can’t have anymore’? Do you get it? Well, that’s one Korean taste-word, similar to ‘savory’.(that’s not quite same) You should try and give me the word that pops up in your head right away for my writing!
It has been also approved by HACCP(Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points), that is a systematic preventive approach to food safety and biological, chemical, and physical hazard in production processes that can cause the finished product to be unsafe, and designs measurements to reduce these risks to a safe level. So this product is safe enough to your tommy, and whole body. Please don’t worry about it!
Oh, Food, you are supposed to give people happiness though, how dare you?
Why are you doing this? You were always beloved by people though…hahaha To guys in this video, all I can say for them is, well done guys, well done. Some people with God’s gift 😉 don’t seem to have a big problem to deal with spicy food, like this one, anyway they made it! Daddy made it too! Haha. They said it’s getting spicier in the mouth, which I agree on. It doesn’t seem very spicy first but once it’s flaming on your tongue, it doesn’t go away soon. You saw the guy pouring milk in his mouth too!
Such a big sensation it is on Youtube and lots of Korean sites. You might have at least once watched or heard about this if you had some Korean friends, if you are on ‘internet hot spots’. Now the recipe for flaming chicken fried noodle is evolving into more various ways, like adding some cheese on it, mixing with other kinds of noodle, or so. I haven’t tried other types yet, however, I know I’m waiting for any chance for it, and can’t wait for it at the same time!
Why don’t you try this with me!
