The DHL guy is my new pal – I hook him up with extra instant noodles I’ve got. He’ll probably end up with a couple from this box too! Kind of neat – he bring me noodles and I share some of the ones he brought! Well, let’s have a look inside!
Here’s another one sent by Colin – thanks, man! I’m a big fan of tonkotsu ramen – I would say it probably my favorite variety of the Japanese dish. Rich pork bone broth with a creamy and milky look and mouthfeel. Ahhh… Let’s check this one out!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, add noodle block to 2 cups boiling water and cook for 3 minutes stirring occasionally. Add in powder seasoning and stir. Add in liquid seasoning. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
Powder soup base.
A liquid seasoning sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and chashu pork. The noodles are of nice gauge and chewiness. The broth is a thinner one for tonkotsu, but it has a very nice and creamy pork taste to it with a nice bit of shoyu. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.
Here’s another one sent by Casey P. from Hong Kong – thanks! I’ve always thought this one looked interesting – the guy tooting his horn, the little cat. I tried this years ago – new package, new review though. Let’s check it out.
The back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether meat free or not – probably contains fish products. to prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in large seasoning sachet. Add in your garnish and sprinkle smaller sachet on. Enjoy!
The Noodle block.
A dual sachet.
A soup base powder.
Smells like pepper!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork, spring onion, hard boiled egg, kiazmi shoga and sesame seeds. The noodles have a slightly thicker gauge than most Japanese instants – not quite South Korea’s ramyun, but thicker than the norm. Nice chew and mouthfeel to it as well. The broth is a very comfortable shoyu – slightly thin but with a good natured yumminess. The pepper adds a nice little bit of goodness as well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902881000017.
Today, we come to the end of this Meet The Manufacturer with Myojo of Singapore. Lots of great new flavors to try in this one! Todaym we end things off with Mee Poh Dry. I did some scrouing of the Internet and found that Mee Poh often is served with fish ball, so I’m pleased at that since I love using fish ball – and the ones I have in my freezer are indeed from Singapore. Let’s dig in!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains crustacean and fish. To prepare, boil noodles in 450ml water for 2-3 minutes. Drain. Add in seasonings sachet contents and stir well. Enjoy!
The noodle block – different noodles than what I’ve reviewed in this Meet The Manufacturer thus far.
The seasoning sachet.
A light powder.
Looks like oil with garlic perhaps.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Dodo Prawn Flavor fishball, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, red pepper flake, crab stick, black pepper and coriander. The noodles in this one were neat – flat and broad. They have a light chew and a definite comfort foodiness to them I quite enjoyed. The flavor is kind of a light buttery, salty and tasty hit – again, kind of like mee goreng in preparation but very different in flavor. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888107000060.
Previously, I reviewed Myojo’s chicken abalone pack version – this is the bowl version. This is the next to last review of this Meet The Manufacturer – been quite nice to try all of these varieties! Let’s check this bowl out!
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains crustacean and fish. To prepare, add in sachet contents and fill to line with boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles hydrated very nicely as with the other yellow bowls they have. Decent gauge and soft chew. The broth is predominantly chicken, with an abalone flavor lingering which was nice but not overwhelming. The addition of the special garnish was really nice. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888107000480.
