How to Make Korean Bibim Cold Noodles

How to Make Korean ‘Bibim’ Cold Noodles

This week I was asked to evaluate some delicious Korean foods that are being exported to the Australian market. One of the items in the package was ‘Bibim Noodles’, aka Korean cold instant noodles that are perfect for summer. I thought it would be a good idea to make a video on how to make Korean ‘Bibim’ cold noodles. I have a sneaky feeling that western people don’t know a lot about making cold noodles. So here it is! The people asked, and I delivered.

I have to admit, when I first tried these ‘Bibimmyeon’ or ‘Bibim Noodles’ back in 2017, I was not a huge fan. I am happy to report that after being reintroduced to them for this project, and I am already a huge fan. We only have one packet left!

In Korean ‘Bibim’ means mixed and ‘Myeon’ means Noodles. So they are literally mixed noodles. They can be served either warm or cold, but because of this sweltering Seoul heat, I decided to show you how to make them cold.

This video contains the simple steps needed to make the cold noodles. All you need to do is boil some water, cook the noodles, drain the water, mix the noodles in some cold water (and ice!), add the sauce and mix! I added some colourful peeled cucumber, seaweed and chilli flakes for the fun of it. I really enjoyed making this video and I decided to edit it with a really chilled, ASMR type, in the cafe listening to jazz piano vibe. Enjoy! Let me know if you have tried Bibimmyeon in the comments!

Hola Aloe – Korean Heat Wave Drink Idea

🍋 Hola Hola! 🥭

This week I got to sample a bunch of yummy Korean products that are entering the Australian market. It is part of the KFoodies program! I am not usually a fan of Aloe drinks but these Hola Aloe flavoured drinks are delish! The whole household has been enjoying them this week so the bottles are looking a bit sparse in my post (oops).

I have been loving the Mango flavour with a handful of ice, some soda water and lemon. I’m hoping this will make the bottles last longer 🤞🏼. The pomegranate is also SO yum with the same combo. I’m not going to lie, I always judge books by their covers and the packaging wouldn’t grab my attention in the supermarket, but the colours of the drinks would be enough to pique my curiosity.

This sweltering heat wave has me craving sugar, icy poles and fresh and juicy fruits. The Hola Aloe drinks are a great alternative to those sugary drinks your dentist tells you not to drink! Perfect for an Aussie BBQ and is something everyone can enjoy in punch or on its own!

Let me know if you’ve seen these guys in stores or if you love aloe drinks!

Note to self: next time I have to review a product, take pics BEFORE posting so they don’t look half full!
