#2296: Suimin Noodles With Chicken Flavour

Here’s another one sent by Jen from Australia – thanks! This one is just plain old chicken flavor and I think should be pretty good. Let’s find out!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add in sachet contents and enough boiling water to cover the noodles. Let sit covered for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

A light powder.

The vegetables sachet.

Lots of greenery and looks like little pellets of textured vegetable protein (TVP).

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are standard noodle cup gauge but are very crumbly. This works though; the broth is a strong chicken flavor – definitely reminds me of something I would expect from a domestic instant noodle cup made by a non-Japanese company if that makes sense. The vegetables hydrated well. Just a little saltier than I would like. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310155300261.

Looks like corn and greenery.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander and beef. The noodles were pretty good although slightly mushy. The broth has a nice beef taste, augmented with a lot of oregano. The included veg was kind of off. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310155610506.

#2274: Suimin Noodles With Braised Beef Flavour

Here’s one that Jen from Australia sent – thanks again! Braised beef sounds good… I’m mostly familiar with Taiwanese braised beef flavors – excellent stuff! Curious how this one will be – let’s have a look!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added beef, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and coriander. The noodles came out very well – the gauge and mouthfeel were nicer than I expected this go around. As far as braised beef, I would kind of say it’s a misnomer; more of a sweet beef. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 9310155303262.

#2231: Fantastic Noodle Chicken Flavour

This is another one sent to me from Australia by a reader named Jen – thank you very much! Well, pretty much every company has a chicken flavored something – usually a pack or cup, and it usually tends to be one of the first products they introduce to the market. Let’s give this chicken variety a look.

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add in sachet contents and enough boiling water to cover the noodles. Cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken with McCormick Applewood Rub, hard boiled egg, spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and chilli flake. The noodles have an interesting chew – kind of like the have a backbone but with a kind of rigid mushiness; hard to explain but it works pretty well. The broth’s flavor is definitely chicken and pretty decent. The vegetables hydrated very well – especially the corn which was big kernels. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 9310155620505.
