    Several Taiwanese TV stations broadcasted the ‘top 10 instant noodles’ news today. I estimated >90% of the viewers were very surprised none of the Taiwanese brands or models made the list. Instant noodles were invented by Taiwan-born inventor Momofuku Ando in Japan.

    We hope they will make top ten on your list in 2013-2014.

    Below links are some of the top brands in Taiwan:

      Yeah – I’ve been trying to translate what some of the comments people have been making on the Taiwanese sites. From the sound of it, I need to try more local versions – not the export only ones I get here. I’ve done up a special post about this.
