#142: Nissin Original Chow Mein Teriyaki Beef Flavor Chow Mein Noodles

So this is what you’ll find at your local grocery store in the United States. I picked this one up at a dollar store. Looked interesting so thought I’d give it a go. I’m always looking for the exotic and felt I was kind of missing the more domestic and such. How can I be a true Ramen Rater without trying the stuff from across the ocean as well as in my backyard?

A liquid pack and a veggie pack. I stuck the veggies  in with the noodles, filled up to the extremely helpful and prominent arrow fill line and microwaved for 5 minutes…

It came out very nicely (click image to enlarge). The noodles were broad with a nice chew and good quality. The veggies hydrated very well.. The flavor from the liquid pack was great – the teriyaki beef was absolutely delicious. I must say for a bowl/box of noodles, this was top notch. 4.5 of 5.0 stars. Get it here.
