Okay so this ramen is pretty amazing
The newest addition to the Samyang spicy chicken ramen line, this ramen is both super spicy and flavorful. My only complain is that it doesn't really have a "Ma La" flavor. Ma La, meaning "numb & spicy" in Chinese, usually has a very strong peppercorn taste, which is supposed to leave your tongue kind of numb. This ramen, however, was more a Chinese 5-spice flavor, which tastes pretty good.
This is definitely spicier than the regular buldak ramen, though I dont think it is 4x as spicy as they advertise it to be. I would say it is about the same, if not less spicy, than the 2x spicy Buldak ramen (I know, doesnt make much sense). When I was eating the 2x spicy ramen, I was close to crying. I didn't cry with this but it did hurt my tongue a bit so its not for the faint of heart. If I were eating this as a meal and not for a review, I would only put about 1/2 the sauce and add some sesame seeds/ sesame oil.
