My brother went to a supermarket in Cairo, Egypt to buy some groceries for our apartment. As he was about to leave the Pasta aisle, he noticed something that he, my cousins, and I really enjoy- Korean food. The best part? It was halal!
It was the Samyang Fire Noodles and we had never heard of it before, but the words “Korean” and “Halal” were enough to catch his attention. He grabbed a few, threw them in the cart, and away he went to the check out.
When he got home, he showed me the noodles and I was just as excited to try them. “I’m going to put on K-Drama while I eat.” I said. My brother grabbed a few from the bag and went down to give them to our cousins who lived in the same building.
“You won’t be able to eat these.” My cousin told him. “These are way too spicy.” My brother and I assumed that they meant “spicy” as in some people can handle it while some can’t. It wasn’t until we learned it was so spicy that you have people eating it as a challenge all over social media.
At that point, the noodles were just sitting there in a bag on top of the fridge for a couple of days and we forgot about them. Coincidentally, as I was laying there lazily on the couch, scrolling through TikTok- something that motivational speakers will lose their minds over if they found out- I stumbled upon this TikTok from one of my favorite creators on the platform, Jenny Tipton. She made the Samyang Fire Noodles using a recipe that includes adding milk. I tried it… and it was heaven!
SORRY I FILMED THIS RIGHT AFTER MY COSPLAY VID pls excuse the makeup!! (First vid creds @slothgirl420 🥰 #fyp #ramen #recipe #koreanfood #asiansnacks #asianfood #kpopedit #kdrama #animeedit #genshinfandom #bellecosplay #belle2022 #belle2021 #belleanime
I followed Jenny’s instructions in the TikTok and I was in love with this recipe from the first bite. After weeks of constantly making it whenever I got the chance- don’t worry, I didn’t make it that much- I filmed a TikTok where I showed my ideal relaxing free-time of eating Samyang Fire Noodles while watching K-Drama. One user left a comment asking me to show the recipe, so I did in this TikTok you see here (Please excuse the bad lighting).
To my surprise, the TikTok got a decent amount of attention and from that point on, I seem to have found a fanbase on TikTok. Whenever I’m hungry, have free-time, and want to relax, this Samyang Fire Noodles recipe is my go to. Finally, here is the recipe in text. Also, welcome to my very first blog post. I’m really excited that you’re here!
- Add water to pot.
- Add noodles when the water boils.
- Dump out water when the noodles are done.
- Add Milk.
- Add seasoning.
- Crack 1 or 2 eggs (if you can handle more than 2 eggs, suit yourself).
- Add cheese (I just use Mozzarella).
That’s it. Enjoy!
