Here’s a new one to me on a couple fronts. First, special thanks to Joseph H. of Sacramento, California for this great donation. so what’s interesting about this one? Well, it’s the first FMF Chow I’ve ever even seen. Secondly, this stuff is made in of all places Fiji! Yup – Fijian instant noodles! Awesome! Let’s give it a try!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).
The noodle block.
Kind of interesting how this one is folded over like this.
The seasoning powder packet.
Here’s the powder itself. Has a nice masala scent to it.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a hard boiled egg with Cavendar’s Greek seasoning, yellow onion, broccoli, green bell pepper and baked chicken with Lindberg-Snider Red Baron BBQ spice. The noodles are slightly different; they are a lot like your domestic instant noodle except that they have a slight crumble to them and an almost chewiness. They are rather plump as well which is nice as far as the comfort-food element goes. The masala flavor is really nice – a little spicy and a good hearty broth. One thing that was interesting with this one is that the directions mention between 375 and 500mL of water – it might not seem like it, but a 1/2 cup is quite a bit when it comes to noodle making. This one had probably 450mL of water added. Anyways, this is good – a nice eastern taste from Fiji. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 9416470238606 .

I’m glad to hear they came in one piece, and that they are pretty good. I was actually quite afraid they would have been nothing but crumbs, and/or they wouldn’t have tasted good.
Also, I’m going to probably go back there one of these days with your list downloaded onto my phone and just look them up, see if there is anything there you haven’t had yet.
Thank you very much – Fijian instant noodles – who knew! – I reviewed the tomato one today! Wow that would be awesome! I’ll be updating the Big List pretty soon too – bout to crack into the 900’s! Thanks again!
