#80: Unif / Tung-I Artificial Chicken Ramen Noodles

Hot out this morning! Walked over to 99 Ranch for my daily fix.

I was in the mood for something a little different and picked something new and kind of safe. My stomach’s been a little funky – gut-bomb burritos in enchilada sauce and ice cream last night I wager.

So this must be super chicken / king chicken of some sort? When I opened the package, I noticed a scent. A scent very familiar to me! Smelling the smell, I nicked a little piece of the dried noodle cake and popped it in my mouth. Yep – pre-seasoned instant noodle cakes – very much like the Nissin 1958 style stuff. You could eat it like potato chips!It’s perfect for those who can’t figure out how to measure two cups of water and put the noodles in it and apply heat underneath…

A lonely seasoning packet.

Had a lot of seasoning and some green onions too! This stuff’s doing pretty good so far, but what about the taste?

The final word on this one is that its pretty good stuff (click image to enlarge). It’s kind of fun to make as you can have a taste of the noodles as an appetizer. It also uses 2 cups instead of 2 1/4 like the Nissin Demae ramen which I found annoying since our measuring cup goes straight to 1/2 cup measure.The noodles are thinner than your standard instant noodle too. It all binds together in a nice little meal. I’m giving it 3.5 out of 5 stars. Not ultra fancy, but they didn’t have to put on this much of a show for artificial chicken flavor. Besides, any package that portrays a happy about-to-be-slaughtered ingredient on the front bears a certain amount of honor.
