Here’s one of the few I have left that were sent by James B. of the Netherlands – thanks again! I’m real curious whether this will have a strong tandoori chicken flavor or just a nice spicy mixture. I guess there’s only one way to find out! Let’s crack open the pack and have a look!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare without broth, add noodle block to boiling water and let steep for 3 minutes. Drain. Add in sachets and stir well. For a soupy version, add everything to a bowl and add 250ml boiling water. Cover and let stand 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!I’ll try the dry method.
The noodle block.
A seasoning sachet.
Has a sort of earthy scent.
Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles came out really far to the mushy/overly soft end of the stick. What’s a bummer is that the flavor from the sachets was just great – a nice, rich tandoori taste I really liked. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8712100756726.
Here’s one that was sent to me by James B. from The Netherlands – thanks! I’ve had a couple of this brand’s varieties before; they were sent to me by some folks at a Dutch tech magazine after I did an interview for them. That was waaaay back, so it’s pretty cool to be able to review new one! Let’s check ’em out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and sachet contents to 250ml boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The dry soup base sachet.
Has a curry scent.
A seasoned oil sachet.
Has a kind of garlic scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added broccoli florets, corn, white onion, orange bell pepper and grilled chicken. The noodles are thin and very light. They had a comfort food feel to them in their softness. The broth was slightly thicker than expected, but without a large amount as expected. European instants oft times are skint on broth and this is no exception. The flavor was of a salty curry, and went well with the noodles’ texture. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8712100756788>.
Here’s the second of two packs sent to me from The Netherlands by Sister Laoban – thanks again! I thought some Oriental Chicken instant noodles sounded good for Easter.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). I usually scan the backs of packages, but this one’s really shiny and the scanner has serious difficulty with it. Used my camera instead.
The noodle block. Crunchy and tasty!
Here’s the powdered seasoning.
Has a slightly lemony flavor with the chicken taste.
I think it’s just vegetable oil.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added scrambled egg with Jane’s Crazy Mixed Up Salt, baked chicken with El Mexicano Adobo, broccoli, sweet onion, green bell pepper and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are thinand a little crumbly but good crumbly. The broth has a chicken and slight lemon taste I found. Whether it actually has lemon in it is undetermined, but it reminds me of lemon. The broth was quickly sucked up by the noodles. Tasty! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8711200259908.
Unox makes all sorts of things. I’ve heard they’re well known for their wursts.
I got a couple sent to me from Holland by a reader names Sister Laoban – thanks! I’ve tried Good Noodles before when someone sent me some from over there once before. This one looks interesting – satay.
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Shiny silver packets don’t scan so well.
The noodles did pretty good for coming from so far away through the mail!
The powder seasoning.
Has a peanut-like scent.
Not a lot of it.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some broccoli and an almond to garnish. The noodles are very thin and light – they have that ‘comfort food’ feel that a non-gourmet brand would have. The flavor is very interesting; it tastes good – spices and a peanut component. The scant 250mL of water is all but absorbed by the noodles (I used the soup method on the package). Decent noodles! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8711200189106.
Looks like Unox parties hearty here at a New Year’s happening!
Here’s another Dutch noodle from Michael V.N. in Holland! He informed me that kip means chicken – it’s kind of funny as almost every other noodle package that is chicken flavored usually has some kind of image of a chicken on it – this one’s covert!
Two packets – oil on the left and powder seasoning on the right.
The powder and oil intermingle in their savory way.
Click image to enlarge. A couple of scrambled eggs and some carefully placed polka-dots of Texas Pete hot sauce. So I have the vegetable flavor a week or two ago and I followed the same directions and it did the same thing – I try to make it with soup but it just gets sucked up by the noodles so quickly. The noodles are nice enough – and the chicken flavor is quite good – I liked it and would eat it again. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars!
So this is the product that Unox is most well known for.
I really like how after she tosses the stick of butter in the other lady starts talking about healthy foods…
