#890: Unif / Tung-I Mushroom Flavor Ramen Noodles

So today I have two mushroom flavored instant noodles I’ll be doing. First off will be this Unif/Tung-I mushroom pack. What’s interesting about this one is that Unif Tung-I is usually from Taiwan, but this one’s from Vietnam. Anyways, let’s try this one and see how it is.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Notice all of the German on here!

The noodle block.

Dry seasonings.

Powder as well as veggies!

The seasoned oil packet.

Looks interesting.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some baked chicken, yellow onion, green onion, Krazy Mixed Up Salt and Ajishima Kimchi furikake. The noodles are thin and have an almost buttery taste. The broth has a mushroom taste but its not overwhelming; almost like sauteed mushrooms. Pretty good – 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 073217060068 – get it here.

#864: Unif Tung-I Instant Bean Vermicelli Chinese Spices Tong Tsai Flavor (Bean Thread)

I have absolutely no idea about this one. First off, it’s been quite a while since I’ve had a Unif Tung-I pack. Second, I usually don’t like bean thread. Third, Tong Tsai? What’s that? Well, I’m not sure.

Here’s the block of bean thread.

Powdered seasoning.

Looks like there are bits in there. Upon a little taste I get sweet, salty, onion? Garlic?

Seasoned oil packet.

Looks good and weird. I have somewhat high hopes of this being an interesting one.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Look rather art-like with the curves toward the top and little bubbles towards the bottom. The noodles are thin and funky as bean thread usually is. It is also really long and hard to break off with your lips. I went the kitchen scissor route and cut them. Much easier to eat that way! The broth is salty and kind of greasy with hints of garlic, onion, maybe shallots too. I am surprised; I liked this one and actually ate all of it! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars – fascinating!

If my kid did this, they’d be grounded. Period. Also, it’s ramen – rah-men.

#431: Unif Tung-I Chinese Onion Flavor Instant Rice Noodles

 

I’ve reviewed  a ton of the Unif noodles, but it’s been quite a while. Here’s a Unif rice noodle – Chinese onion.

Two packets – powdered seasoning and seasoned oil.

I got a little of the oil on my finger – boy is it pungent stuff! Had an almost putrid strong smell.

Click image to enlarge.  I was expecting these noodles to be a little slimy and clumpy, but they were not. The broth is salty and very onionny. It’s not bad stuff, and worth having again if you are a crazed cultist of the church of onion. Like Funyun stew. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here.

 

#173: Unif Tung-I Instant Bean Vermicelli Shrimp Flavor (Bean Thread)

Bean thread huh? Hmm – not always my favorite. It tends to be gloppy, mucky stuff that kind of congeals together.

Two packets – powder and oil – smelled like a light sesame oil.

Very light colored seasonings awaiting the boiling nature of bean thread in 3 minutes of pain.

Click image to enlarge. Well, not too much positive to report on this one! Tjhe bean thread was its standard gloppy and funky way. I don’t like it. No vegetables here unless a couple green pieces of something floating around count. The flavor was kind of neutral to me; shrimp? Not extremely. So here’s the score: 1.5 out of 5.0 – just not something I liked. Get it here.

#164: Unif Tung-I Artificial Beef Flavor Ramen Noodles

I must admit I laugh a little when I see this brand – I like the bit of Norwegian on the front. Biff!!! Smak!!! Sounds like the old Batman TV show! Well, Let me whip out my Bat ramen pot and cook this stuff up.

Red oil – I think a good sign!

Looks nice as it awaits the soup and noodles…

Here’s the Biff Smak (click image to enlarge) ! Wham bam! Wow – this stuff is tasty nice. The noodles are nice – not the best in the world but they have a bit of fortitude to them. The broth is slightly thick and has a slight spiciness and really hits the spot for a lunch meal. Also, a lot of noodles here – they pack em tightly. I’m giving this one a 3.75 out of 5.0 stars! Good stuff! Get it here.
