I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Usually, the first instant product a noodle company will put out will be chicken flavor. In fact, the first instant noodle product that was ever produced was chicken flavor. Chicken is just about universally palatable, and most don’t have a religious rule against it. A chicken instant noodle is the beginning and so that’s where we will start today. Fried garlic chicken sounds really good, and on the package, it promises an ‘insanely rich broth.’ Alright – the proof is in the noodle – let’s give it a try!
Mike’s Mighty Good Craft Ramen Fried Garlic Chicken Flavor Ramen Soup – United States
Detail of the package (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, add noodle block to 1 3/4 cups of boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle blocks – kind of like a lump of noodles.
A dry sachet.
A fluffy powder.
An oil sachet.
Has a sesame scent.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, baked chicken, fried garlic, spring onion and hard boiled egg. Noodles are very good – nice backbone and chew to them and definitely have a ‘premium tooth.’ The broth was exactly as mentioned on the package. It has a strong chicken flavor and an easily distinguished fried garlic taste as well which was a nice start. It did seem, however, that the sesame oil in there was kind of jockeying for position a little bit. Either way, this was impressive for a start for this Meet The Manufacturer series. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 081567702118.
