This is the first bowl of instant noodles I’m having since our California vacation last week and I must say it’s good to be back to reviewing! This is one I picked up while in Canada a while back. Let’s take a look!
Here’s the import sticker (click image to enlarge). May contain meat.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, add noodle block to 600ml boiling water for 4 minutes. Add contents of sachets and stir well. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A fluffy white powder.
The liquid base sachet.
An oily liquid.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added thin sliced pork, green onion and narutomaki. The noodles are quite good – they have a nice chew and premium feel. The broth is pretty good, but seems to be missing something. It’s not as rich as I’d hoped. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902881052290.
Here’s an older commercial for Myojo Chukazanmai instant noodles.
Here’s an interesting one. Myojo does this premium Chukazanmai line and there are quite a few different varieties! This one has me a little worried though. I haven’t really liked Szechuan style much of anything in the past. Hopefully this will turn the tide! Let’s check it out.

The premium noodle block.
The powder base sachet.
A light, granular concoction.
The liquid sachet.
Has a Szechuan scent. Hmm.
Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles were quite nice – they had some serious chewiness and a feel of higher quality than many. The flavor however wasn’t the greatest. It had a miso side of things and a funky Szechuan soy and chilli flavor that just felt greasy and funky to me. I could see some people liking it, but just not my kind of thing. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 4902881052313.
I’m pretty excited – we’re moving to a new apartment soon! I’ve been going through everything, boxing stuff up. Actually, I’m currently flanked by a stack of boxes that’s getting really high – and they’re pretty heavy, too. What’s going to be insane is that we will be moving to a place on the top floor – only one flight of stairs, but it’s a decent amount of stairs. Should be quite a workout! What’s nice is that it’ll be close to a nice big Asian grocery – an HMart – so there will be easy access to everything I need to add to my noodles. Anyways, yeah – pretty big thing. I thought I’d have one I found while packing – no idea how it got to where it was as I usually keep everything in a couple big totes. Let’s check out this yakisoba – with black pepper mayonnaise!
Here are pics from the bottom and sides (click image to enlarge).
Here’s the lid, under the plastic wraps (click image to enlarge). To prepare, open lid to dotted line. Take out the three sachets. Fill to line with boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Using pour spout, drain. Add the large sachet and stir well. Garnish with the two remaining sachets. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
The uakisoba sauce sachet.
Smells like a sweet yakisoba sauce.
Here are both side of the black pepper mayonnaise sachet.
Here’s another garnish sachet.
Seems to be a combo of seaweed, pepper flake, green onion, and maybe some sugar and slat. If anyone knows exactly what it is, please let me know.
Here’s a little bit of the veggie mix that was in the bottom of the tray. Looks like there’s also a little beef or TVP going on as well.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed sukiyaki beef and sweet onions. The noodles have the gauge and chew of the rest of Myojo’s yakisoba line – nice and soft with a great chew to them. The flavor was pretty good, although I found it to be missing the normal yakisoba flavor of Worcestershire, it did have a light oil sweetness and saltiness. The mayonnaise and other garnish gave it a nice pepperiness that was nice. The vegetable and meat component hydrated nicely. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 4902881403559.
A couple of funny Myojo instant noodle TV advertisements – they look to be a little older.
Here’s another one sent by Annie T. of MyKuali! Thanks! This one sounds interesting, and I have something neat to go with it considering my recent fascination with fish balls – prawn flavored fish balls! These noodles are from Singapore, as are the fish balls! Let’s check it out!
The back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish and crustacean. To prepare, boil noodles in 450ml water for 4 minutes. Take off heat and add all the sachet contents. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
Dry soup base sachet.
A dual sachet – sweet soy sauce on the left and seasoned oil.
Thick, black and sweet.
Man, that’s orange!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added prawn flavor fish balls from Singapore, green onion and BonCabe spicy seasoning. The noodles are good quality – thick and full. The broth is not at all what I expected. It’s got a sweet and spicy balance from the sweet soy and spicy oil and a very nice prawn flavor that really tastes great. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 8888107001012.
I like that line about these noodles being ‘Prawn-a-licious!’
