When I first tried it, it was way too spicy for my mild tastebuds. However, I kept wanting to go back in for more spoonfuls. It's a rather refined spiciness wherein it doesn't only deliver heat - it packs in a lot of flavour as well! Really delicious, really bellyful. Tip: I like adding an egg with mine. Simply break and stir in an egg as the soup and noodles are boiling. It enhances the flavour even more.
