#617: Nissin Demae Iccho Sesame Oil Chicken Flavour Instant Macaroni In Soup

Here’s another from the bottom of the hamper! My sister Sue got this one for me on a trip to Canada earlier this year. Looks like this’ll be the last noodle to be reviewed in 2011! But these aren’t your ordinary looking noodles, are they? Instant macaroni! Let’s try it!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge)… They cook really quick – only three minutes!

Two packets: the sesame oil and the chicken flavoring! Nice!

Here are the curly little buggers now. They’re delicate and thin.

There’s the seasoning powder and the sesame oil.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I dropped an egg in too. The macaroni is very very light and thin – probably needs to be that way to cook in only three minutes. The broth and all around flavor is salty, sesame and chicken. Good stuff. I like it – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

If anyone ever would like to donate some Nissin Chikin ramen, that would be most awesome; there would be a mega review and history lesson.



  1. I know this is an old post but if you get hold of this again I would really recommend adding a load of fresh coriander and lime juice. Takes it from tasty to delicious.

  2. Nissin macaroni? disgusting I’ve tried it: tasteless …
    If you ask me this product has nothing to do with the respected brand Nissin at all.
    If I want to eat instant macaroni I buy Knorr or Maggi
    or for the real deal I go to a good quality Italian restaurant.
    Like Vina Acecooks instant porridge I’m out puke…burp!

    1. Naw man this was a nice asian take on macaroni; very different. I liked the Tum Yum I tried a few months ago too – decent stuff.

      Just wait til you see the onslaught of Japanese bowls I’ve got in store – spent $30US on some ramen and didn’t get a lot – this stuff was pricy but I’ve never seen it before – one is ‘My Friend Vic’ brand!

      – TRR

      1. Hey! Im leaving this comment in another year! Happy new year! And happy earth revolving around the sun completing yet another orbit for the several millionth time day! Haha…

        My friend vic? I wonder who vic is. Reminds me of “my cousin vinny”
