#2147: Maruchan Instant Lunch Pork Flavor Ramen Noodles With Vegetables

Before I start, I wanted to thank Happiness Engineer Anne and the folks at Automattic, makers of the Jetpack plugin for WordPress. There was a bug in the way it handled mobile themes with their newest release and I asked for help. In less than 2 days, a fix was out and everything’s looking nice again! 

You’re probably thinking “no way – this couldn’t be a new review” but yeah – it is. After reviewing over 2,100 varieties of instant noodles over the past few years, I found this was one I never reviewed. Well, let’s get to it!

Loose vegetables from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added pork seasoned with NuTek Salt For Life, chopped garlic and spring onion I sauteed together. The noodles came out well – always kind of surprises me how many noodles fit in a little cup. The broth is a bit of an enigma to me; while it’s pork flavor, I don’t taste pork. It certainly went well with pork, but on it’s own it really didn’t taste like pork – more like beef actually. The vegetables did very well. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789001239.
