#2301: Suimin Noodles With Oriental Chicken Flavour

Here’s another one sent by Jen from Australia – thanks again! I’ve seen so many different versions of chicken over the years – spicy versions, savory versions, you name it, (insert adjective here) chicken is very commonplace. But oriental chicken from Australia; what’s that all about? Let’s find out!

Lots of greenery and maybe some carrot.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chicken. The noodles are definitely on the mushy end of the spectrum. The broth (what little of it there is) is a strong chicken taste. As for the ‘Oriental’ aspect, it’s lost on me – reminds me more of flavors from South America lite gallina which is young hen and a little more oily. The vegetables hydrated decently. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310155535267.

#2298: Nissin Cup Noodles Spicy Chile Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup (New Recipe)

Nissin Cup Noodles Spicy Chile Chicken

Finally, after decades of sticking with the same recipe, Nissin has decided to go with something new. On Cup Noodles’ 45th anniversary here in the USA, they’ve changed it to make it healthier. Some changes are no added MSG and no artificial flavors. Furthermore they’ve lowered the amount of sodium in these cups from the previous versions using potassium chloride.  So, let’s give this Spicy Chile Chicken a try!

Seasoning and loose vegetables from the cup. Seems like some bell pepper, corn and chicken bits here.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, sous vide chicken, spring onion and nanami togarashi. The noodles hydrated well and had a better than expected chewiness. In addition, broth has a very good taste – a light spiciness with a kind of cumin hit – maybe chile de arbol pepper? As a result, I think spicy chile chicken is a fitting title. Finally, the vegetables hydrated well. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662030110.

#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!

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.

Lots of bits in there.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Dodo fishball and spring onion. The noodles are really good in this one – nice gauge and the chew – very sturdy and hearty. The broth is definitely leaning more towards chicken than abalone, something I enjoyed. The flavor was rich and the oiliness was very good.  The vegetables hydrated well and worked nicely here. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6920363400702.

#2252: New Touch Sugomen Sano Ramen

Here’s another one sent to me by Javier from Box From Japan. Box From Japan has subscriptions for all sorts of neat Japanese things. I regret to say that I was informed that they won’t be taking subscriptions for their ramen boxes for now – hopefully that will start again soon. He mentioned that you can purchase instant noodles from them here. Here’s what he had to say about this particular variety:

Local ramen of Sano City in Tochigi Prefecture. The noodles that are made in Aotake are genuine. Famous ramen with many fans all over Japan. Noodle: Non-fried noodle that is smooth on the outside and chewy on the inside. Wide noodle. Soup: With a slow simmered chicken bone flavor as a base and added pork and savory herbs, the final taste is full of chicken oil and spices. Soup that is refreshing yet filled with meat and rich flavors. Ingredients: Roasted pork, bamboo shoots, green onion.

Sounds good on this cold day! Let’s check it out!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains pork and chicken. To prepare, add in contents of vegetables sachet. Add boiling water to fill line and let steep covered for 4 minutes. Add in liquid and solid sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

Smells good – and rich.

What have we here?

Roasted pork!

Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles are slightly wide and flat. They have a strong chew and nice disposition; I liked them. The broth is very good – a hearty chicken and pork taste which fills the guttyworks with a satisfying feeling. The included pork and bamboo shoots worked very well and spring onion rounds out the bowl. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4903088004884.
