#1918: iMee Instant Noodles Chicken Flavour

Here’s another one that was sent to me by James B. from The Netherlands – thanks! So this one is made in Thailand for the Dutch market. Nothing says compassion like chicken. I think. Well, chicken is kind of that universal flavor that is okay for everyone but Vegans (at least if it has chicken in it). 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 noodles to a bowl. Add 320ml boiling water and cover for 4 minutes. Add in seasonings. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A dual sachet: seasoning base on the left and chilli powder on the right.

The chilli powder atop the seasoning base.

An oil sachet.

Has kind of a garlic scent to it.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and chilli flake. The noodles were stalwart and weren’t super soft or engorged – something chicken instants usually are which was refreshing. The broth had a nice and salty chicken taste with a tinge of chilli powder spiciness (almost undetectable) and the oil gave it a little more gumption. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8858829601098.

#1798: iMee Instant Noodles Vegetable Flavour

Here’s another one that was sent to me by James B. from The Netherlands – thanks! So this one is made in Thailand for the Dutch market. Vegetable flavor can be interesting; there are so many vegetables and so many takes on what ‘vegetable’ flavor is. Some taste like mushroom predominantly while other have a strong broccoli flavor. Some even taste like butter! Very curious to see what kind of vegetable flavor this one has – let’s find out!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added corn, spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, cili padi from Dwayne, broccoli and tau pok. The noodles wer okay – they hydrated well enough and had a kind of standard Thai instant thing to them with a bit less flavor. The broth was uninteresting – kind of a buttery taste to it. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8858829601111.

#1783: iMee Instant Noodles Creamy Tom Yum Shrimp Flavour

Here’s another one that was sent to me by James B. from The Netherlands – thanks! So this one is made in Thailand but definitely for the Dutch market. Tom yum is a classic Thai soup flavor, but what makes creamy tom yum creamy? Traditionally, when a creamy tom yum is made, the ‘cream’ doesn’t come from a dairy product, but from boiling the shrimp heads. It has a creamy look to the broth.

I asked this guy next to me what pack I should review today. Being 3 weeks old, I’m sure he wasn’t really deciding, but he whacked the tom yum before the Japanese one, so I went with that.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains crustacean. To prepare, add noodle block to a bowl and then add 320ml boiling water. Cover and steep for 4 minutes. Add contents of sachets. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block – a little dinged up from it’s long journey.

A dual sachet.

A dry powder with a shrimp scent.

A paste with the familiar spicy and lemongrass scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added red chillies, coriander, shrimp flavor Dodo fishballs, Cosmo Salad mung beans sprouts and lime. The noodles hydrated very nicely – a good texture – soft and giving. The broth was absolutely perfecto – spicy, lemongrassy and shrimpy. Nice look to it as well. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8858829601128.

#1757: iMee Instant Noodles Beef Flavour

Here’s another one that was sent to me by James B. from The Netherlands – thanks! So this one is made in Thailand but definitely for the Dutch market. It’s an interesting one for sure – seen them online for a few years but never been able to get my hands on any – until now! I like how it says ‘decent noodles’ next to where it says iMee – as opposed to indecent noodles! Let’s check ’em out!

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