#2310: Pran Mr. Noodles Instant Noodles Beef Flavour - Bangladesh - The Ramen Rater

Here’s one sent to me by Colin – thanks again! So this one is kind of interesting – I’ve reviewed lots of Mr. Noodles in the past, however they’ve been from Canada. I think there’s also a Mr. Noodles in India as well – unsure if they’re related to this Bangladeshi brand though. It seems to me that with so many Mr, Noodles out there (lest we forget Mr. Noodles from Sesame Street as well), there’s bit of confusion. In fact, I get comments quite often actually from the Mr. Noodles customers in Canada asking where to go to contact them. Of course as far as the Canadian ones go, all I can find is a distributor and nothing else. So very sorry, Canadians…

These Mr. Noodles are from Pran, a company that makes all sorts of different things. Hopefully soon there will be a Meet The Manufacturer with Pran so we can check out all their varieties. Now let’s see how Mr. Noodles is when he comes from Bangladesh!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, sweet onion, beef and coriander. The noodles came out rather nice; indeed a light gauge and comfort food chew with an enjoyable floppiness. The broth had a very good beef taste I enjoyed especially – and the oil really bumped it up. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 846656008252.

#1299: Mr. Noodles Noodles In A Cup Spicy Chicken Simulated Flavour

Here’s one my wife got for me on my birthday trip to Canada! Thanks, baby! Spicy chicken. Let’s check it out.

The cup.

The side panel from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

Detail from the lid (click image to enlarge). To prepare, empty sachet into cup and fill to 1/2 inch from the top with boiling water. Steep for 3 minutes, stir, and enjoy.

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Vegetables as well as seasoning in one sachet.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken, carrot, peas, sweet onion I has all sauteed with a little El Mexicano Adobo Seasoning and a sprinkle of colby jack cheese. The noodles are so strange; they smell like tortillas. I don’t understand why, but that’s what I get from them. They’re not the greatest in the world either and never seem to be completely prepared to me. The broth in this one wasn’t spicy, but it did seem to have a bit more flavor than the others in this line I’ve tried. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491002550.

Don’t mess with Canada – they’ve got their facts straight.

#1227: Mr. Noodles Chicken Kimchi Oriental Style Noodle With Soup Base

Here’s another one from my birthday trip to Canada. I think this may the first instance of chicken kimchi noodles I’ve heard of. Let’s give it a try.

Here’s a closeup of the lid (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself. To make this one, peel back the lid halfway, dump in the sachets and fill to 1/2 inch from the top with boiling water. Re-cover and let sit for 3 minutes and it’s ready.

The noodle block.

Soup base sachet.

Has a chicken taste.

The veg sachet.

Veg and powder.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and a slice of processed cheese. The noodles are a little crumbly and have a slightly ‘off’ texture. The broth is really ‘off,’ it’s kind of like kimchi but then again not really. It has a kind of tomato and chicken thing going on but really oddly so. The bit of vegetable are there but I don’t know what for really. Everything kind of has this weird flavor throughout – the only thing I can liken it to is the smell of a bag of tortilla chips. Bottom line is that it really tastes neither like chicken nor kimchi and has extremely subpar noodles. 0.5 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 059491009009.

#1169 Mr. Noodles Noodles In A Cup Beef Simulated Flavour

Here’s another from my Canadian birthday trip! Thanks again, Kit! This one’s for my son Andy (check out his blog at www.andyslegostuff.com). Usually he goes for the chicken varieties, but beef is what he’s getting today! Let’s check it out!

Here’s detail from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.

Here’s the cup itself.

Vegetables and seasoning inside.

Andy’s a fan of noodles, but never likes broth. Also, any mention of spiciness has him running as well. Usually I get a little resistance when mentioning adding lots of veggies and meat, but he was open to it this time. Had a nice thunderstorm roll through after this and hung out on the balcony watching for flashes and listening for rumbles…

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added peas, carrots and beef. The noodles were pretty sad – very mushy and had a weird flavor. The broth is lackluster, although has a nice color to it. The veggies are only so-so. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491002352.
