#1928: Bamee Oriental Style Instant Noodles Chicken Flavour

At the local grocery store, they have this deal. It’s called ‘Cheep Chicken Monday,’ and you get 8 legs and wings for $4.99 on Mondays. It’s a pretty good deal – as long as the deli has a big mound of it, you know it’s fresh and hasn’t been sitting. It’s good stuff – thought I’d use some with this variety. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add package contents to a bowl. Add 320ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Meet The Manufacturer: #1475: Bamee Cup Oriental Style Instant Noodles Chicken Flavour

Here’s another of the Bamee line, one that appears to be for the Northern European market. Bamee looks to mostly be comprised of classic flavors – beef chicken and duck. Chicken seems to be one meat that people in just about every country eats as well as makes in an artificially flavored form such as this. I think a nice relaxing cup of chicken noodles sounds nice. Let’s have a look!

Yesterday we were going to get a couple of goldfish then I saw these guys and we got a couple of them! They’re called Axolotl and they kind of look like little alien Pokemon. They’re a form of salamander that lives underwater and comes from Mexico. Anyways,, this one’s named Mr. Chibbs and the other (not pictured) is Heisenberg.

Here’s detail from the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, empty sachets into cup. Add boiling water to line, re-cover and let steep 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

If you are a big fan of chicken and cooking, this might be for you!

Meet The Manufacturer: #1469: Bamee Oriental Style Instant Noodles Beef Flavour

Before this Meet The Manufacturer, I really hadn’t known that Thai President Foods made so many different lines of instant noodles. I thought they made MAMA and that was about it – I was definitely wrong about that! Here’s another line for export to Europe, Bamee. This one has quite a few languages on it, more than the Thai Chef I reviewed a couple days ago which looked to be more for the German market. Anyways, beef! Beef sounds like a good one for today – it’s cloudy outside and a bit cooler. I’m wishing we could skip fall and go straight to winter – I really like snow and fireplaces and all of that comfy stuff. Summer is great, but it’s been a pretty hot one here. Beef soups are some of my favorites during winter, which is what made me go on that tangent there. Anyways, it’s still summer but time for Bamee beef noodle soup! Let’s go!

Before I start, also wanted to mention our good dog Otis. He’s not been feeling great lately – had to take him to a 24 hour emergency veterinarian a couple days ago. Hope you feel better soon, Oat!
