Top 10 Korean Ramyeon In Malaysia 2023

As K-Pop and K-Drama took over the world, so did Korean ramyeon. From blazing spicy ones to savoury ones, Korean ramyeon has a place on the shelves of Malaysia’s supermarkets. The most famous Korean ramyeon brands are Nongshim, Ottogi and Samyang. These three brands not only monopolize the Korean ramyeon in Korea, but in other countries too.

Korean ramyeon are famous for their chewy texture and thickness of the noodles. Their noodles are chewy because of the starch and wheat flour content. Aside from their chewy yet soft noodles, the main attraction of the noodles are the seasonings. Their seasonings usually contain spicy condiments as the Koreans like their ramyeon spicy.
