#2257: Fuku Tom Yum Soup Instant Noodle

This one sounds really good. I really like tom yum and this looks like it’ll be good – I’ve liked most of the Fuku products I’ve tried so far and hoping this will be a continuation of that trend! Let’s dig in!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains crustaceans, chicken and fish. To prepare, add noodles to 350ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add contents of soup base sachet. Stir and enjoy!

A granular powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, Dodo fishballs and a little chilli flake. The noodles are the nice ones as usual with that kind of chicken and sesame taste. The broth has a tom yum kind of flavor to it; lemongrass and heat. The thing is that I don’t think sesame and tom yum goes together all that well and it leaves my taste buds a little confused and wishing I had two separate dishes to taste. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4897878650057.

#2250: Nissin Demae Iccho Spicy XO Sauce Seafood Flavour Instant Noodle

Here’s yet another leftover from the Nissin HK Meet The Manufacturer! This is a really large bowl and sounds pretty good! If you’re unsure about what Xo sauce is, here’s an excerpt from Wikipedia:

Developed in the 1980s in Hong Kong for Cantonese cuisine, XO sauce is made of roughly chopped dried seafoods, including scallops, dried fish and shrimp, and subsequently cooked with chili peppers, onions, and garlic. This dried seafood-based sauce bears similarity to the Fujianese Shacha sauce. Spring Moon, the Peninsula Hong Kong‘s Chinese restaurant, is often credited with the invention of XO sauce, although others claim the sauce’s origin in the urban area of Kowloon.[2] The name XO sauce comes from fine XO (extra-old) cognac, which is a popular Western liquor in Hong Kong and considered by many to be a chic product there. In addition, the term XO is often used in the popular culture of Hong Kong to denote high quality, prestige and luxury. In fact, XO sauce has been marketed in the same manner as the French liquor, using packaging of similar colour schemes.[3]

Alright – let’s check it out!

#2243: Nissin Cup Noodles Black Pepper Crab Flavour

Here’s the last of the varieties that Prima Taste sent a while back – thanks! You might be wondering – why would they send a product they don’t make? Well, I asked for anyone who could help to send me noodles – I was down to three or four varieties in my hamper – a bad situation! Well, lots of people sent noodles – even Prima Taste! So let’s check out this one from Hong Kong with a Singaporean taste!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains seafood. Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, add cold water to fill line and microwave at 800W for 3 minutes (use this tool to convert wattage for your microwave – not an exact science though. I have an 1100W microwave with a ‘power level’ button – changed it from 10 to 8 and it works great). Stir and enjoy!

#2240: Wang Rice Noodle Anchovy Flavor

Here’s a flavor I don’t usually have all to often – anchovy. Salty little fishies! I am hoping it’s tasty but not too fishy; there’s a fine line between yes and yecch when it comes to such things I believe. Let’s give it a go!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains anchovy. To prepare, add sachets into bowl and add boiling water to fill line. Cover for 3-4 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

A wide sachet.

A freeze dried block – these spring to life when boiling water is introduced and usually contains lots of flavor and vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, Busan fishcake, kimchi and chilli flake. The rice noodles were decent – nice gauge and well hydrated in the time allotted. I gave them a couple cross cuts with a pair of kitchen scissors to make them more manageable. The broth was a little fishier than I would have liked, but it is anchovy. It had an alright flavor and the vegetables were of good quantity. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 087703111158.
