Here’s one my wife got me earlier this year on my birthday trip to Canada! Thanks, Kit! Today I’ll be using the very last of the amazingly succulent and perfect turkey Kit made this Thanksgiving – trust me – it was absolutely perfect. That’s why it’s chicken flavored noodles today; I don’t think it’d be very logical to add it to shrimp or beef flavored. Maybe duck, but I don’t believe there’s any duck flavored in my stash. So the noodles were bought in Canada, distributed in Hong Kong and a product of Thailand – got all that? Let’s check it out!
The back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, put the noodles and contents of sachets in a bowl. Add 400ml boiling water, cover for 3 minutes, give a stir and it’s done.
The rice noodle block.
Seasoning powder sachet.
A light powder.
Flavored oil sachet.
Has a slightly garlicky scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and Added turkey baked in the over stuffed with apples and onions with fresh rosemary, garlic and butter under the skin and basted regularly during the time in the oven. The noodles were the kind of rice noodles I dislike; they’re extremely thin and wispy like cobwebs – not the ones you get from a spider but the ones that you’d get at a Halloween store. The broth however is actually quite nice with a good chicken flavor. This would’ve been way better with rice stick. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4897878200023.
Here’s one my wife got for me at a drug store a while back. It’s made in Thailand but for sale in the USA. Let’s check it out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Markings on the cardboard outer package indicate gluten free and vegan. To prepare, put the noodle in the tray. Add enough water to submerge them and microwave for 3 or 4 minutes – until they’re soft. Put cover back on and use the drain spout in the corner to drain. Take off the lid and add the contents of the sachets and stir. Finished!
Here’s what’s under the cardboard outer.
An included fork!
Rice stick noodles.
Dry seasoning sachet.
Has a garlic note to the scent.
The oil sachet.
Looks like chili oil to me.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp I marinated in some hot sauce, lime and Fresno chilli pepper. The noodles are pretty good – rice stick that’s just chewy enough and come out just right. The flavor is great – a light garlic and chili flavor and a nice saucy coating on everything. Good stuff. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 734492823037.
Was digging through the box today and decided I’d better get on this one. I couldn’t really find a lot about it other than the Google translation from Nissin Japan’s site. It mentions something about being special for the rainy season. Also mentions seaweed. Let’s give it a try!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish extracts. To prepare, boil 500ml water and add noodle block. Cook for 5 minutes. Empty seasoning sachet in bowl, add broth and stir then noodles.
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Looks to contain green onions as well as powder base.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added scrambled egg and kamaboko. The noodles have a very enjoyable texture and chew. They’re udon alright – wide and hearty. The broth (which I expected to be salty) was rich but not overly so. I could taste a ‘of the sea’ flavor with notes of seaweed. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 4902105106020.
Here’s another that Annie T. from MyKuali in Malaysia sent me to try – thank you! It’s big – and it’s curry! Not only that, there’s still turkey left! Let’s give it a go!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Says it may contain traces of crustacean, fish, milk, celery and mustard. To prepare, boil 450ml water and add the noodles and seasoning sachet contents. Boil for two minutes and you’re golden.
The noodle block.
Soup base sachet.
Has a very nice curry scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added turkey baked in the over stuffed with apples and onions with fresh rosemary, garlic and butter under the skin and basted regularly during the time in the oven, hard boiled egg Fresno chilli pepper, broccoli and sweet onion with dashes here and there of Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles were pretty good; they had an interesting chew – a little chewier than I expected and what with the 2 minute cooking time I was pleased to find it wasn’t because they weren’t done, but just because they were chewy. I like them. The broth had a nice curry flavor – good depth and just the slightest hint of spiciness. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 9556001207630.
I can happily report that Thanksgiving holiday was quite enjoyable. My wife made the best turkey dinner I’ve ever had! Great stuff!!! I asked if she’d pick which instant noodle in my stores would be best to have with some leftover turkey and she decided this would be it. It is of course chicken flavored, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a turkey instant noodle, so it’s the next best thing! Let’s check it out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 400cc water and add noodles. Cook for 3 minutes. Put the seasoning sachet contents in a bowl except for the bawang (fried onion) sachet. Add the noodle and liquid and stir and garnish the top with the fried onion.

Another dual sachet: seasoned oil on the left and spicy sauce on the right.
Has a very good scent – garlic and onion.
Sweet and spicy.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added turkey baked in the over stuffed with apples and onions with fresh rosemary, garlic and butter under the skin and basted regularly during the time in the oven, lime and hard boiled egg with paprika. The noodles are just a little wider and chewier than your standard instant, giving them a little more hearty texture and feel. The broth has a very nice chicken flavor with notes of garlic, onion and paprika. The oil adds a little extra ‘oomph’ to the broth, and the fried onion on top give it a satisfying little crunch. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 089686014563.
