#1975: Nissin Soba Fried Noodles Classic

The very last one from James B. of the Netherlands – thanks again, buddy! Kind of interesting to note that this review is the same number as the year I was born. I remember when I hit review #500 and #1000 – seems so long ago! Let’s check out some yakisoba from Germany!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block and vegetable sachet to a pan and add 250ml water. Cook until liquid is all but absorbed and add in contents of liquid sachet. Stir and enjoy!

Smells like yakisoba sauce!

A vegetable sachet.

A nice little mixture.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and barbecue pork. The noodles came out pretty well; a little fluffier than I would have liked. The yakisoba sauce was alright, but just seemed to be missing that slight Worcestershire/tamarind bite. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 5997523324278.

Probably my favorite instant noodle documentary.

#1916: Nissin Soba Fried Noodles Teriyaki

Here’s another one James B. sent me from The Netherlands – thanks again! I’ve reviewed these varieties in cup form, but not the packs and I’m really pleased to be able to. These come from Nissin Germary! Let’s have a look!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block and vegetable sachet to a pan and add 250ml water. Cook until liquid is all but absorbed and add in contents of liquid sachet. Stir and enjoy!

Lots of little bits.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and barbecue pork. The noodles cooked up nicely and had a decent chew to them. The flavor wasn’t exactly what I would expect teriyaki yakisoba to taste like; it’s kind of got it’s own thing going on. Nevertheless, it’s tame and has a nice flavor to it. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 5997523324315.

Looks to be mainly green onion.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Shirakiku kizami shoga, mayonnaise and bbq pork. The noodles seemed to be a little on the squishy side, a little more than I prefer. The flavor is your basic yakisoba just with a hit of spiciness. Not enough to make your mouth catch fire, but a nice little taste. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 5997523324292.

The vegetables sachet.

Looks like most spring onion.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added barbecue pork, spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles sucked up the 250ml of water easily and were evenly hydrated. They have a good texture and chew to them. The flavor is a light, sweet curry and has a nice oiliness to the noodles. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 5997523324339.

One of my favorite documentaries about instant noodles.

#1733: Bonasia Instant Noodles Beef Flavour

Here’s another one that was sent to me from Thailand by the Thai President Foods folks. This is made in the EU for the German market! I thought maybe I’d make my son some beef flavored instant noodles today – let’s have a look!

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

A dual sachet of soup base on the left and chilli powder on the right.

The oil sachet.

Has a beef scent to it.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added spring onion, white onion, beef and mung bean sprouts. The noodles had a good consistency and hydrated very nicely. The broth had a very nice beef taste and a good oiliness to it which gave it a reasonable homestyle kind of feel  to it. The chilli powder was a nice little touch and didn’t make it detectably spicy. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4316734068411.
