#2009: Conimex Oriental Noodles Soto Ajam

Okay, I think this is the very last of the ones that were sent to me by James B. of the Netherlands – thanks again! Let’s crack it open and have 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 fill to line with boiling water. Cover and let sit for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

Dry soup base.

Powdery.

An oil sachet.

Very yellow!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander and sweet basil. The noodles were lackluster, although hydrated decently in the aforementioned 3 minutes. The flavor was kind of a neither here nor there kind of thing. Not bad but not much. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8711200585144.

#1923: Conimex Oriental Noodles Teriyaki

Another one sent by James B. from the Netherlands. Thanks! So these Conimex variants have been interesting. The last one I had was a green curry whose only similarity to green curry was, well, a green hue. Let’s see what kind of teriyaki we have here!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. There are two ways to prepare this one and I thought I’d go with the noodles version instead of the soup with noodles since teriyaki soup doesn’t sound very good. Add noodles and veggies to a pot of water and cook. Drain. Mix in sachet contents. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The dry base sachet.

A tan powder with sesame seeds.

The liquid sachet.

Looks like oil and a teriyaki sauce.

A vegetables sachet.

Looks like carrots and corn.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added barbecue pork and spring onion. The noodles were very soft – almost mushy. More like the ‘roni’ in Rice-a-Roni. The flavor was anything but teriyaki; a hint of sweetness and salty. The vegetables came out nicely at least. 0.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8711200585038>.

#1861: Conimex Oriental Noodles Groene Curry

Here’s another one that was sent to me by James B. from The Netherlands – thanks! First off, this one is groene curry, which translates to green curry. These are from The Netherlands and made by Unilever. Let’s check ’em 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 fill to line with boiling water. Let stand 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has an almost pine kind of scent to it.

An oil sachet.

Looks like vegetable oil. Cold in here!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried garlic. The noodles hydrated well enough; they were a little on the al dente side though. The broth was anything but green curry. It was like a green colored corn chowder. It’s wasn’t bad really, it’s just… Well, if you went to the store and bought spicy chicken noodles and got sweet seafood flavor, it would be a bit vexing. This isn’t curry by any stretch of the imagination. 0.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8711200585106>.

#1847: Conimex Oriental Noodles Hot & Spicy

Here’s another one that was sent to me by James B. from The Netherlands – thanks!  These are from The Netherlands and made by Unilever. Let’s check ’em out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and sachet contents to a bowl. Add 250ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A powder seasoning sachet.

Smells kind of like lemon cookies.

A seasoned oil sachet.

Smells like this is where the hot and spicy element is contained.

A vegetables sachet.

Looks like carrot, corn and scallion perhaps.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked salt and pepper chicken and ito toughrasi (pepper strands). The noodles were thin and light. They sucked almost all of the broth, which ended up as kind of a sauce at the end. The flavor was interesting; almost like a slightly sweet lemon along with a little bit of spiciness. The vegetables hydrated well enough. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8711200584970.
