#1651: Ruski Chicken Flavour Instant Noodles

You might have noticed that I haven’t reviewed a lot of chicken flavor varieties recently. The main reason for this is that Io haven’t had any chicken to go with my noodles – I usually cook some in the over and slice it up nicely and then I’ve got it for a couple reviews. Well, I’ve been lazy – a bag thing. So let’s check out this chicken instant from Ruski – laziness ends here!

 Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. to prepare, add sachet contents and noodle block to a bowl. Cover with 400ml boiling water. cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Meet The Manufacturer: #1472: Ruski Chicken Masala Flavour Instant Fried Noodles

Mi Goreng! It sounds exotic, but it boils down to fried noodles. This is a rather unique one – I don’t think I’ve heard of a masala chicken dry noodle like this before, but it sounds pretty good! It’s been a while since I’ve had any mi goreng, and my son is here today and wants some so I thought why not. Let’s check it out!

As summer winds down, my thoughts return to the days when school’s ugly head would be rearing soon. My son Andy goes back to school September 3rd! Fourth grade… I will definitely say Fourth wasn’t the worst grade I experienced, although it was pretty bad. I’m really hoping he has a much better experience than I did. Here he is doing up a post about his new school stuff. I told him he needed to write some thoughts about his upcoming school year – he tried to weasel out of it, but I bribed him so it should be an interesting post. Quite a setup he’s got in his room – mostly hand me downs, but works for an aspiring blogger. Anyways, onward!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, ass noodles to a bowl and add 400cc boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Drain well. Add in sachet contents and stir until combined. Enjoy!

Meet The Manufacturer: #1467: Ruski Creamy Tom Yam Instant Noodles

As I mentioned yesterday, I was nominated by my sister to do the ALS ice bucket challenge – it’s the thing everyone is doing these days to bring awareness and donations for people with this debilitating condition. You have to have a bucket of ice dumped on you! Well, I did it with a little help from my pal Jason Warden – the video is at the bottom, so be sure to check it out and also have a look at www.ALSA.org and consider donating to help find a cure!

Today, it’s creamy tom yam! What I love about this Meet The Manufacture is the multitude of tom yam varieties. I get to have lots of fishball and seafood! I think all of the reviews I’ve done in recent months centering around Southeast Asia have really awakened my taste buds to how much I like the flavors of this region as well as seafood. I should mention that it looks like this is a variety made in Thailand for sale in Malaysia. Let’s check out this Ruski Creamy Tom Yam!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, you have two options. The steeping method: put everything in a bowl and add 400cc boiling water and cover three minutes, stir and enjoy. The cooking method: add noodles to 450cc boiling water and cook for three minutes. Add in seasonings, stir and enjoy!

#1324: Ruski Instant Noodles Stewed Beef Flavour

I’ve been trying to figure out what I’d add to this one, and how this Thai variety might taste. It’s require digging through the freezer for some good stuff to go with it – beef, of course, but what else? I guess you’ll just have to see down below. Let’s give this one a try.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure if it’s meat free or not. To prepare, boil 300ml of water and add to the noodles. Cover and steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy.

The noodles are thin and have a nice texture and flavor like most Thai instants do – I think they’re considered ‘brown noodles’ in Nepal.
