Just to begin with – Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
Someone was commenting about the different between this one and a more recent review of a MAMA hot and spicy variety from Bangladesh. Then they said they ordered some on Amazon and got a different version from either of those – the Oriental Kitchen pack version! Wow – lots of different kinds. This one is more along the lines of ramyun in it’s noodles being much thicker (the kamaboko and peppers are also kind of a dead giveaway). Let’s check it out – last time I had it was for review #159!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add package contents to 400ml boiling water and cook for 4 to 4 1/2 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dual sachet of chilli powder on the left and soup base on the right.
The chilli powder atop the soup base.
The veggie sachet.
A nice little mix.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and spring onion. The noodles are definitely ramyun style – thick and chewy. Also ramyun style is the broth – spicy and red! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 052066002016.
Some hot stuff from MAMA here today. We’ll see if it’s really hot and spicy…
I liked the fuchsia dual pack – that bright pink is the same color of the hottest peppers in the world! We’ve got a veggie packet, a red pepper powder and a soup base here…
I really like the colors on this one a lot – bright and vivid.
Click image to enlarge. So I altered the recipe just a skosh today – added two small fried eggs and some green onion. Yep – this stuff was very hot as far as instant noodles go. The noodles were of a rather uninteresting nature and kind of rude and impersonal. Not what I expected since trying this new line of packaged instant noodles by MAMA – I had the Mi Goreng last month and raved about it. So eggs and green onions perked this stuff up a lot. I’m going to give this a 1.75 stars w/o the alteration and a 2.75 with and combine them for an overall 2.25 stars out of 5.0. Get it here.
