Nongshim's Shin Black have been chosen as the world's best instant noodles by the New York Times' Wirecutter product-review website.
In an article title "The Best Instant Noodles, According to Chefs, Cookbook Authors, and Ramen Fanatics" on June 17, it was rated as the tastiest of 11 brands sold around the world.
Four of the top 11 were Korean, six Japanese, and one outlier Singaporean.
Shin Black "has a winning combination of a complex, spicy broth, substantial dehydrated vegetables, and toothsome noodles. I couldn't stop eating these," author Anna Perling wrote.
All four Korean brands were Nongshim products, the others being Chapagetti and Neoguri (No. 3), Nongshim Shin Light (No. 6) and Nongshim Bowl Noodle Soup Gourmet Spicy (No. 8).
Also on the list were Japan's Oh! Ricey Instant Rice Noodles Pho Bo (No. 4), Nissin Raoh Ramen Noodle Soup (Umami Tonkotsu Flavor) (No. 5) and Nissin Top Ramen Noodle Soup Chicken Flavor (No. 7).
The list was compiled based on recommendations from seven chefs, food writers and critics followed by taste tests of the final 11.
