#1446: Myojo Ippei-Chan Jumbo Night Market Style Yakisoba

To start off, thanks to Raissa T. and Andre L. for their help on translating! Today feels like a yakisoba day. I really like yakisoba! It’s a pretty versatile dish; you can add anything to it and it’s still good! Well, strawberry jelly probably isn’t the best add-in… Then again, with that mention perhaps someone will try it and make it the new craze? The latest weird add-in craze was adding those little pudding cups or flan into a Cup Noodle. Bizarre… Well, let’s see how this comes out – looks good on the package! Especially with the amazingly cool little recommendation to…

Enjoy Mayo Beam! Japanese mayo is pretty awesome stuff! I used to rave about Best Foods/Hellman’s, but that Kewpie stuff is top-notch. I thought that Japan was the biggest consumer of mayonnaise, but it turns out the Russian love the stuff – they eat more of it than any other country in the world! What’s interesting too is that a component of yakisoba sauce is Worcestershire sauce, which also is a European thing. Trippy. Let’s dig in!

Her’s the distributor/import sticker (click image to enlarge). Not sure if it contains meat as the label is very light, but it probably does.

The lid (click image to enlarge). To prepare, remove sachets. Add in boiling water to line and re-cover for 3 minutes. Use the orange spout to drain. Add sachet contents and enjoy!

The noodle block.

Bits of cabbage and maybe meat from the bottom of the tray.

The yakisoba sauce sachet.

Has a sweet and Worcestershire scent.

Furikake is mentioned on the front, so I’m guessing that’s what this is.

Furikake is a seasoning often added as a condiment for rice with sesame seeds and seaweed and other tasty bits.

All hail the mayo beam!

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green onion, bean sprout, sauteed beef and sweet onion. The noodles were your standard tray yakisoba noodle – but with a huge quantity. I would say this was the most food from a noodle tray I’ve seen yet! Unfortunately, although tasty, it didn’t seem that there was enough yakisoba sauce really; the flavor could have been a little stronger. The furikake was a nice touch though, and the mayo beam gave the meal a ray of light! The cabbage and meaty bits hydrated perfectly. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4902881404532.

Yakisoba! Yakisoba!

#1428: Myojo Chukazanmai Beijing Style Salt Ramen

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.

#1416: Myojo Chukazanmai Szechuan Style Miso

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 distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). Contains chicken and shrimp.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, add noodles to 600ml boiling water for 4 minutes. Add contents of sachets and stir. Enjoy!

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.
