#1274: Wu-Mu Shiitake Flavor Spinach Ramen

I’ve just got to face it; I’ve got noodles coming out of my ears here! There’s a big bag of these Wu-Mu noodles next to my bed that I’ve been almost tripping over as of late. They don’t fit anywhere else and each one is a 4 pack! I thought today my son and I would try a couple varieties. I figured I’d give this one a shot. I’m definitely not a huge fan of mushrooms, but the spinach noodles sounded nice. Let’s have a look!

The distributor sticker (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, boil 600ml water. Add noodle block and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add oil and dry sachet and stir.

Green spinach noodles.

Dry sachet.

Very light and very dry.

The seasoned oil sachet.

I made the mistake of getting some of this on my fingers and then licking it off. Ugh!

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles have a very nice chew to them. Their gauge is good as well, and a nice flavor. They aren’t overwhelmingly spinach flavored in the least. The broth is light in flavor (the flavor of the liquid sachet was very much diluted which was good) and has enough oil to give it some heartiness. The vegetables are highlighted by goodly sized chunks of shiitake mushroom which are decent. I am surprised how much I like this one. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4710175565438.

    It just cracked me up that I was away from the computer for a while. When I returned and saw the picture of the cooked noodles, I thought it was brains!

    It didn’t bother me or anything, of course!
