I WAS SURPRISED TO HEAR HOW MANY OF YOU I FOOLED! HAPPY APRIL FOOL’S DAY – I’LL BE REVIEWING INSTANT NOODLES FOR A LONG TIME COMING!
Got a box from Malaysia today!
I always look at the packing material – it was all paper from a tradeshow in Tahiland called ThaiFex, and from a Hong Kong show called HOFEX.
Here’s another one that was sent to me by Javier over at Box From Japan – thanks! Box From Japan is a subscription service – you can get a box sent to you every month with some great noodles within! This one says got Chinese cabbage with a sweet soup and a deep flavor which is from something called ‘rajan,’ a strong and spicy red pepper seasoning fermented with rice koji. Let’s check it out!
I knew there was a little store doing this a few weeks back, but now it seems like I’d better say something about it.
So this week there have been a myriad of articles coming out; Eater, HuffPost, TV news websites… All showing this video and headlines like “Stop What You’re Doing: This Is How Ramen Noodles Are Made.”
I got an email a few weeks back from a fellow named Hikaru T. from Courrier Japon magazin. He was interested in doing an article about my Top Ten list and asked if that’d be alright. I usually ask for a couple copies of the finished product and some cool instant noodle from the country where the magazine is. Well, he said okay and so here is the box that arrived today!
As I’m sure many of you have noticed, there are lots of Amazon items on here. When you look at them and buy anything on Amazon, The Ramen Rater gets a small referral credit. This is really helpful as it helps keep the site going. So if you’re thinking of doing some Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or anytime buying on Amazon, check it out from here! Best of all, it costs you nothing. Thank you all for frequenting the site – lots of great new reviews coming!
Got a package from Courtnay N. of Surrey BC today. She traveled to Japan this year and brought something bac to send me. Let’s check it out!
A big box!
These are the new Paldo Namja Ramen King Cups – I’ve reviewed the South Korean ones, but these are the new ones for sale here in the USA. Thanks to Moses over at Paldo America!
