#708: Wu-Mu Pork Flavor Ramen Mi Thit Bam

Got this on our recent trip to California at a 99 Ranch down there. I rememebr enjoying the beef one I got the time before in California during our honeymoon, so figured it’d be a good idea to give this one a try!

The package back (click image to enlarge). Notice the directions – they don’t say how much boiling water – except in the microwave part. Actually, if you look at the Chinese, you can see the number 550 in there. Sometimes there are packs or cups with nothing in English and those numbers can be really helpful. Single digits like 3 or 4 can be minutes of cooking. 550 would usually be the amount of water in mL or cc.

These looks to be the standard steamed noodles that Wu-My likes to use.

Hey – get your grubby mitts offa my sauce bag! Actually, this contains dry seasonings.

See? Not real saucy. Dry soup base and veggies.

Here’s some seasoned oil.

Pretty standard seasoned oil.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I scrambled an egg with a little Kikkoman Soy Sauce, added some turkey breast, some store brand stir fry veggies and a little Ajishima Kim Chi furikake. The noodles were a big letdown here. Very chewy – overly so. They also didn’t take on the flavor of the broth. The broth was pretty lackluster as well. A surprise since the beef ramen they make was so good! Well, there’s one more variety to try they make in this line so I’ll have to give that one a shot. Most of their products are really good but not a fan of this one, sad to say. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 673367040448 .
