#2500: The Ramen Rater Select Supreme Creamy Tom Yum Noodle

#2500: The Ramen Rater Select Supreme Creamy Tom Yum Noodle - Malaysia - The Ramen Rater - Hans Lienesch - instant noodles - ramen - tom yam - noodles

Well folks, here it is. This is what I’ve been working on for over a year now. As you will see from a lot of the text on the package, it’s still has a couple of loose ends to tie up – a couple typos and the cooking instructions are a little off. It’s my fault really; I wish I spoke Chinese… Really should learn someday. But it’ll get there. ...see full post

#2482: TTL Chicken Noodles With Chinese Shaoxing Wine - Taiwan - The Ramen Rater

This is one I was sent by Daniel of Exotic Noods, a subscription service specializing in instant noodles.

Tobacco and liquor – what?! Indeed, this is a boozy noodle. It contains rice wine, something apparently that goes well in noodles and cooking. Ireviewed the bowl version of this a few weeks back. ...see full post

#2416: Xiuhe Hot & Sour Beef Noodle

#2416: Xiuhe Hot & Sour Chilled Beef Noodle - China - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Here’s another one that was sent to me by Colin from Arlington, Massachusetts – thanks again! This one has really proved to be a touch one to translate this morning. Cooking shouldn’t be an issued, however figuring out what the name/variety is on this one is tough. Searched by image, searched by barcode, hit the company’s website… I see other ones with the little ‘angelic baby’ on the packaging, but none that look just like this one. UPDATE – Thank you to Bobby Y., my friend from Toronto – he figured it out. It was too late for my friends in Southeast Asia so I had to look west! So the noodles are hot but I guess I will put chilled prepared beef in with them. Alright – let’s check it out! UPDATE #2 – my friend Mengzhe Z. who is in China told me actually it isn’t chilled beef – just beef. ...see full post

#2401: Sichuan Baijia Chongqing Noodles Burning Dry Noodles - China - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

I tried the pack version a little while back and really liked it. I’m curious about the bowl – I’m guessing it’ll be exactly the same, but in a bowl. Indeed, it’s got the bonus of portability. So what are Chongqing noodles? Here’s a little about Chongqing from wikipedia: ...see full post

#2395: Master Kong Chicken Noodle - China - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Here’s one sent to me by a reader named Colin – thanks again! So Master Kong has been in the news a lot lately. It seems they’ve closed a factory in Taiwan and people all of a sudden thought Master Kong was going to stop producing their products everywhere. However, this is definitely not the case. For example, here we have a Master Kong variety from China. Master Kang (also known as Kang shi Fu) is produced by Tingyi – here’s a little about Tingyi from wikipedia: ...see full post

Maybe mushroom. Let’s check out this variety from Hua Feng, all the way from China! ...see full post
