Re-Review: Meet The Manufacturer – Nissin Demae Ramen With Sesame Oil

Well folks, this is the last one I’ll be reviewing for Meet The Manufacturer: Nissin week. There will be more Nissin reviews coming of course so don’t worry. The ramen hamper runneth over with new varieties to try! So this is a very old one – old as in I reviewed it was back at number #85 – over 600 reviews ago. I think it’s due.

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge). Vertical instead of horizontal like the front… Interesting…

The noodles look almost hungry for some boiling water. I like the ripple on the end.

Here are both side of the seasoning packet.

The contents of the seasoning packet.

This is the sesame oil packet. Fingers not included.

Time to cook up the last of the Nissin week!

Finished (click image to enlarge). A very plain looking bowl of instant noodles, however a deceptively good one. The noodles are nice and have the right balance of width and firmness to them. The broth has a nice soy flavor to it which the sesame oil mixture accents nicely. This is a good bowl of noodle soup and shall always be. I remember having this as a little kid and despising it though; I though it smelled like cat pee. I think I probably added far too little water to it as I thought the taste was extremely strong and horribly pungent – which properly prepared aren’t words I could use for it. I like it. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 489878000012 – get it here.

Here’s a 40th Anniversary commercial for this one!
