Re-Review: Meet The Manufacturer – Nissin Top Ramen Beef Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

Last time I had a bowl of Beef Top Ramen was way back at review #221! That seems like forever ago! Well, it’s Meet The Manufacturer: Nissin week and I couldn’t go without reviewing some Top Ramen, right? Decided I’d go with beef. Here we go!

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge). This was single pack for sale at the local grocery store – a fraction of a dollar.

Here’s the noodle block. From this, 101 Things To Do With Ramen Noodles, The Ramen Book and scores of other ‘do this with that’ books have come to pass.

Hey – what happened? The last time I saw a flavor packet from there it looked entirely different.

The dry powder seasoning.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added some roast beef lunch meat, some Bird’s Eye Stor Fry veggies, an egg which I boiled with the noodles, a little Ajishima Kim Chi furikake and a little bit of Sushinori. I’ve always liked these noodles – they have a nice consistency and are the same every time. The broth has a nice, mellow salty beef flavor. Good stuff – especially to add things too – I like it! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars! UPC barcode 070662010020 – get it here.

Back in the day when we first found out about this stuff!

Another really old one!
