#30: Myojo Special Duck Flavor


Myojo: Special Duck Flavor Stars: *
Notes: This stuff is nasty. It does live up to being duck flavored, as it’s VERY gamey and really stinks. Will NEVER eat this again. Get it here.

    Strongly disagree. I’ve been eating this for 20+ years. Used to be only 2 US distributors. Granted, it doesn’t taste exactly like eating a duck would, but it’s noodles with flavor, not a duck. As for the gaminess – duck is a game fowl, it’s going to be gamey to some extent in any preparation. Saying it tastes nothing like duck, but then saying it’s gamey, is rather contradictory. However, this product does not have any predominance of gaminess.

    Adding in the garlic seasoning gives it a very nice depth. I use 1/3 of the spice packet as well, to add a medium-light kick.

    If you want gently-prepared duck to the point of almost loosing its natural gaminess, go pay $120 at a fine dining restaurant. If you want affordable noodles with an unexpected depth of uncommon flavor, try duck ramen.

      Your comment is useless as his/her newer ratings clearly show that he/she is more of an artsy (dominant decoration) & emotional (extremely subjective in a superficial way) type of rater in general which disables him/her for neutral ratings

        Wow thanks a lot – you obvious didn’t read that the reviews are based upon the original product and not the garnishes I add. Artsy? Emotional? Subjective? My reviews are all based on my personal taste. I have never said otherwise. Luckily many people agree while others don’t just because you disagree doesn’t mean you need to be insulting.

    Feel free to transfer any remaining packages to me for disposal.

    I’d kill for a package of this stuff. I found this site wandering around ‘net looking for a supplier to feed my ramen habit.

    Heh found this place again while looking for a new supply. Amazon’s out, tho I have it emailing me when they’re back. I did find some last time but they were trying to charge like 3.50 a pack, which rather defeats the concept of “ramen” 😉

    There’s another brand, Mama, but I can’t find it in singles to try. I don’t want to buy a case right off the bat.
