#400: Nissin Cup Noodles Seafood Curry Flavour (Hong Kong)

So for the 400th review, I went with one I’ve thought should be interesting – seafood curry. These are Cup Noodles that are not for sale usually in the United States. I’ve found two – Crab Flavour and Seafood Flavour, but this Curry Seafood Flavour came from Canada.

I think the packaging on these reflect a little more pride in the product as well as quality. For example, a Shrimp Flavor Cup Noodles for the US doesn’t have such ornate images or shiny gold on them. Of course, what matters is what’s inside.

Look at that – a ton of stuff is in this one! Usually the ones sold in the US have an eighth as much stuff. Was nice – an immediate curry odor filled the nostrils as only Japanese curry can.

Click image to enlarge. Nothing added. The noodles steeped perfectly. The vegetables and little bits of dehydrated fish came out just perfect, and the broth was very curry. My only complaint was that the curry flavor overwhelmed the seafood taste so that there was really none at the end of the day. I really liked this one though. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.

Products cooked according to package instructions. Product reviews done prior to adding any additional ingredients.

    Man, this looks delicious! Despite living in Canada, I haven’t seen any of these around… do you know which supermarket this was procured from?

    They would have been from T&T if the buyer was in western Canada. This flavour and a couple other of the HK-made Nissin Cup Noodles are deskfood staples for me.

    Would be happy to fire some down south for your reviewing pleasure… ^_^
