A couple of months ago, I experienced an instant noodle drought. I was looking in my hampers and there were maybe 10 varieties left! We hit 99 Ranch and I found about 10 or so varieties to review (later after putting a call out on the site, I ended up with people sending all sorts of varieties and now my hampers runneth over – my thanks!). Here’s one I found at 99 Ranch – let’s check it out.

The noodle block.
A powder soup base sachet.
A paste sachet.
An oily concoction.

A nice selection.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, beef, sweet onion and crushed red pepper. The noodles are more easily enjoyed with a couple of crosscuts with a pair of kitchen scissors as the are particularly long. They have a a very dense nature and robust chewiness. The broth indeed has a beef flavor but isn’t extremely strong. The included vegetables hydrated quite nicely – especially the corn which was nice and sweet. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.
