Smells good, but not very flavorful. A little greasy.

I loved it. Came to google what I had just eaten and found a place to review them. Plenty of flavor me, and it warmed up in minutes.
Protein level is practically non-existent so I recommend adding an egg maybe 2 (soft boiled or poached on the side). Besides that the flavor is super good. This is definitely a repurchase for me.
Great addition and hoping this will be part of the normal offerings! Quick to cook (3:30) and perfect to add an egg and sesame seeds and sriracha for a kick. Perfect slurping noodles! So much faster than making from scratch. Thanks for adding a new cultural item TJs!
Delicious flavor and great textures, will definitely buy again.
I bought one and then returned to the store to buy more, but they’re gone. It’s good !
I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I like this. Picked up on a whim and had for lunch at work just now. Delicate but distinct flavor, I can see where others say it’s a tad greasy, but otherwise a very good product. If I were at home, I would have this as a side to something, maybe chicken teriyaki or perhaps add some eggs and chili crisp/sambal for heat. 100 percent would buy again

Another favorite! I wasn’t expecting to like it much, but after getting over the strange looking noodles, I quickly became a fan. Maybe an addict…just saying I was sooo disappointed when they were out of stock at my local store last time!
I enjoyed finding these – I’ve been looking for decent japchae since eating at an Ohio restaurant that uses them as a base. As other reviewers have stated, these are a bit lacking in the flavor department (I used a sweet soy sauce, and a few chili flakes), and surprisingly on the oily side. I would have rated them at 4 stars, if they weren’t so oily. However, I did enjoy them, and will likely buy them again
Just when I discovered them, they disappeared from the shelves in the Philly Burbs. The prognostications of future stock have not been met. Will they return soon?
Add steamed broccoli for a very filling vegan meal! I think it would be great adding any protein too.
