#1512: Chewy Japanese Fried Ramen Noodles Kyoto Barbecue Sauce Flavour

I figured since I have some cabbage I need to use before it goes bad, yakisoba would be a good call for today. This is one of those interesting ones. The product is from a Hong Kong company called Chewy, made in South Korea, and a Japanese flavor. Yakisoba is great stuff – vegetables and meats fried with noodles and oil and some flavoring. Time to have some breakfast – let’s check out this one from Chewy.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, heat a tablespoon of oil and add a block of noodles. cook for 30 seconds, breaking up with chopsticks. Add 2 tablespoons of water. Add contents of one sachet and stir, add in some meat and veggies. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Enjoy!

Here’s one of the two pouches of noodles included in this 2 pack.

One of the two sachets that are included.

Kind of a paste.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added cabbage, green onion, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), Kewpie mayonnaise, mung bean sprouts, shrimp and sweet onion. The noodles are a little mushier than I would have expected; they also were slow to break up during the cooking process. The flavor is a nice sweet barbecue kind of taste – mind you, we’re not talking Sweet Baby Ray’s kind of barbecue flavor of course. It was a little acrid for my taste, and seemed just a little too processed. Sadly disappopinted. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 652283001245.
