#2109: Oni Hot Pot Tuna With Shallot Flavor Noodle

So far, I’ve tried Oni Hot Pot’s Ghost Pepper, XO Sauce and Seaweed and Pepper varieties. This one is a bit of a departure though – I think the only tun aflavored instant noodles I’ve had in the past were the Skipjack Tuna varieties from Indonesia. Well, let’s check this one out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). NOTE – this pack contains 4 packs. Contains tuna. To prepare, add the noodle block to 400ml boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Drain. Add in contents of all sachets. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The first of 3 liquid sachets.

Smells like soy sauce.

Another liquid sachet.

Has a shallot scent.

The third sachet.

Definitely the tuna element.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles were very nice – good chew and quality to them. The flavor was like what it’s called; it has a shallot component which was nice – and then a tuna element which worked too. It seemed kind of Italian to be honest; the oil and shallot along with the tuna went well. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.

#2093: Oni Hot Pot Seaweed Flavor Noodle

This came in the mail a week or so ago. Wasn’t expecting it but sure appreciate it! I don’t think I’ve had a seaweed dry noodle before from Tiawan. Sounds like fun – let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure if it contains meat or not. To prepare, add noodle block to a pot of boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

Wide noodles.

The first of three liquid sachets.

Smells like soy sauce.

An orange colored liquid in this one.

Has the scent of Sichuan peppers I think – a chilli oil.

The final sachet.

The final of the three sachets – I’m guessing this is the seaweed component.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added seaweed. The noodles are just great – those sun dried Taiwanese beauties I love. The flavor was spicy. That was it – just spicy. I really didn’t get much other taste going on to speak of. disappointing. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s the second variety I was sent by the folks at Oni Hot Pot of Taiwan – thanks again! The first variety was a spicy one – this sounds a little more on the seafood kick. Let’s have a look, shall we?

Here’s the back of the 4 pack packaging (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat. To prepare, add the noodle block to 400ml boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Drain. Add in contents of all sachets. Stir and enjoy!

#2014: Oni Hot Pot Ghost Pepper Noodle

Okay so it’s been a while since I’ve gotten anything that’s supposed to be really spicy. Well, This one claims to have ghost pepper in it – that’s the Bhut Jolokia, a pepper that’ll rip your head off and then kick it down the road. This one hails from Oni Hot Pot, a chain of restaurants in Taiwan. Never heard of them before – although I have had Taiwanese hot pot here in the US before. Let’s crack this one open and see what’s inside.

The back of the 4 pack (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat. To prepare, add the noodle block to 400ml boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Drain. Add in contents of all sachets. Stir and enjoy!

The noodles – very wide with the ripply edges I like!

The first of three sachets.

Definitely soy sauce.

The second, what looks like an oil sachet.

Definitely has a spicy aroma.

A larger sachet than the others.

Soybean paste perhaps?

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are broad and flat with a nice chewiness. I also like the kind of scalloped edge on the noodles; very chic. The flavor is a serious smack of Ghost pepper; it’s about 20 minutes since I had a couple bites and it’s still burning my lips and tongue pretty good. What’s neat is that it tastes good as well, something many that are extremely hot don’t offer; sesame and soy sauce notes come through despite the fiery Ghost pepper blaze. Serious stuff and not for the weak hearted! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.
