Many of you familiar with the sight of this package may say – hey waitta minute – what are you calling this? In fact, this is known by a few names! Here in the United States, it’s called Nissin Demae Ramen. In Japan, the four characters in big print translate to Demae Iccho. In Singapore however, Chinese is often spoken, and they translate to Chu Qian Yi Ding. I’m pretty sure it means something like delivery boy’ or something – the little guy on the package. Anyways, this is pretty easily gotten the world over, however this is the Singaporean made one! Let’s check it out!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprouts, sliced green onion, and sauteed beef and tofu with soy sauce. The noodles have a great chewiness to them. It’s been a while since I’ve had any Demae Ramen type noodles and I’m quite pleased. The broth has a nice soy flavor with a good hit of sesame which sets it off. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code number 8888279210014.
Check it out – so these are made in Hong Kong. I’ve been recommending to people to try this set quite often as it represents a beginner’s way to enter the noodle realm.
