#183: Nissin Bowl Noodles Hot & Spicy Chicken Flavor

Some very domesticated Nissin Hot & Spicy! Haven’t tried this kind before – hoping it’s good!

So three packets – Vegetables, powdered soup base and their patented ‘soup booster’ packet (liquid).

So the soup booster goes in last, but here’s the cake of noodle, veggies and powder soup base. It microwaved for 3 minutes, thirty seconds and then sat for a minute.

In fact I would go so far to say that this reminds me of Korean noodles that have a picture of a chili pepper on them. The noodles are pretty good – especially after being microwaved like that. The broth is weird; not a lot of it and it’s spicy but a really nondescript flavor other than ‘hot n spicy’ like the Flamin’ Hot that goes on Chee-Tos. The veggies were ample but I found that they liked to hide a lot. This lack of buoyancy for lack of a better word was kind of disappointing as the waterlogged bits fell short. Anyways, I’m giving the whole shbang 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. It was good because I couldn’t decide on anything else to eat, but it filled the void and nothing else. Get it here.

    Ramen Rater,

    Just stumbled on the site. Bravo. Love it. It will be a big resource for me. I recently began eating ramen at work. My instant bowl of choice (and admittedly ignorance) is the Nissin Bowl Noodles Hot & Spicy Chicken Flavor. Being a Mongolian BBQ addict, I was looking create a close representation I could throw in the microwave at work.

    I take the Nissin Bowl Noodles Hot & Spicy Chicken Flavor and add the following:
    About a 1/2 cup of coarsely chopped cabbage
    1/2 cup of frozen Asian stir fry veggies from Costco
    And some leftover chicken or pork
    Most times I also add a tiny bit of capsaicin extract for kick.

    3 or 4 minutes later it just becomes a big bowl of happiness.

    I look forward to trying many of your recommendations, especially those with Kimchi.

    Big thanks for your efforts,
    Dale

      Dale –

      Hey glad you like the site! That sounds like a decent bowl of noodles! You know what’s kind of odd but kind of good – try a little peanut butter in there – stir it in and maybe add more capsaicin. Gives it a slightly Thai accent.
