#2387: Nissin Demae Iccho Sesame Oil Flavour Instant Noodle - Hong Kong - The Ramen Rater - instant noodle

This one is a left over from the Nissin Foods Hong Kong Meet The Manufacturer – thanks again for sending so many! So lately I’ve noticed quite a few of the Demae Iccho varieties in local stores around where I live. I’ve also found them in the past in Canada including this one. What’s the difference? Well, it all comes down to meat.

The United States doesn’t allow import of products with pork, chicken or beef from Southeast Asia. It’s a real thorn in my side. I’ve gotten boxes that should be full of noodles before that have been empty, save a slip that says ‘there was a teency weency bit of chicken powder so we destroyed the noodles.’ Hopefully, this will chill out eventually, because I’d love to be able to get my hands on more varieties easier. Anyways, this one contains pork and the ones exportd to the USA don’t. Let’s check it out!

One of the waning few left from the Nissin Foods Hong Kong Meet The Manufacturer – thanks again! Indeed, Nissin Hong Kong was more than generous in sending over 50 different varieties!

Looks pretty good from the picture of the front -. Let’s have a look at this one.

#2300: Nissin Demae Ramen Spicy XO Sauce Seafood Flavour Instant Noodle

Yet another leftover from the Nissin Hong Kong Meet The Manufacturer! What’s XO Saucve? Here’s a little info from wikipedia –

Developed in the 1980s in Hong Kong for Cantonese cuisine, XO sauce is made of roughly chopped dried seafoods, including scallops, dried fish and shrimp, and subsequently cooked with chili peppers, onions, and garlic. This dried seafood-based sauce bears similarity to the Fujianese Shacha sauce. Spring Moon, the Peninsula Hong Kong’s Chinese restaurant, is often credited with the invention of XO sauce, although others claim the sauce’s origin in the urban area of Kowloon.
The name XO sauce comes from fine XO (extra-old) cognac, which is a popular Western liquor in Hong Kong and considered by many to be a chic product there. In addition, the term XO is often used in the popular culture of Hong Kong to denote high quality, prestige and luxury. In fact, XO sauce has been marketed in the same manner as the French liquor, using packaging of similar colour schemes.
