Meet The Manufacturer: #2200: Mr. Lee’s Noodles Shaolin Monk Vegetables

I think I was talking about Kung Fu Theater and David Carradine’s career the other day. He played Grasshoppe – a pupil of the Shaolin on that show. Still bugs he; why didn’t they get, oh – I don’t know… A more fitting person to play a Chinese martial arts student? Maybe someone.. Chinese? Anyways, it’s veggie time – let’s get it on!

Bits from the bottom of the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles hydrated very well. As with the other varieties, they’re flat and medium breadth rice noodles. The broth is light with a slight sweetness to it. The real star of this one are the vegetables, of which there are a multitude. This probably has more real estate taken up by vegetables than any instant anything I’ve ever had – something I really liked with this one. Good show! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 0641243998725.

#2170: Maruchan Ramen Noodle Soup Mushroom Flavor

Here’s another one sent by a reader named Colin – thanks again! Today, I thought I’d cook up something for my wife Kit. Her actual name is Christine, but I’ve called her Kit for years. She’s always been a big fan of mushrooms – in fact, it’s because of her that I’ve started to like them. Oddly, here’s a Maruchan instant noodle I’ve not reviewed yet. I didn’t even know it still existed til Colin sent it over. Let’s have a look at this one.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free. To prepare, boil 2 cups of water and add noodle block for 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!

The soup base sachet.

Smells lightly mushroomy.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added mushrooms and processed cheese. The noodles are your standard Maruchan ramen noodle – nice squarish shape, standard instant gauge and a nice comforty chew. The broth has flavor!@ So often, mushroom broth just seems more on the bland end. This one tastes kind of like it should be as a side dish. One of the most American tasting instant noodles I’ve experience. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789002151.

#2169: Happy Family Vegetable Flavour Instant Noodles

This is one that the folks from Prima Taste sent me when I did a call for instant noodles to review when I was running low a while back – thanks again! I always love to find  new varieties to review – and what surprises many is that I like trying different store brands. Many will say ‘oh – these aren’t special, they’re common!’ Well, they’re often not common where I live – and if I’ve not tried them, they’re definitely diamonds in the rough! Let’s have a look at this one!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 400ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

A granular mixture.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, spring onion and tofu puff. The noodles have a decent gauge and a kind of plumpness to them when hydrated that I liked. What I really liked here was the broth, a kind of vegetable and black pepper amalgam which was very tasty. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888626078540.
