I’m very happy to announce that the long time that I wasn’t able to step in from of the green screen is over and I’m back to doing top ten videos are back to the way I used to do them.

#10: Super God God Noodles Sichuan Spicy & Scallion Flavor

Super God God Noodles Sichuan Spicy & Scallion Flavor

A newcomer to the list this year. Such an apt pairing of flavor – scallion and Sichuan peppercorn. Cradled by a thick, chewy noodle, this variety is on point and very delicious. Original review

#9: Tseng Noodle Scallion With Sichuan Pepper Flavor

Tseng Noodle Scallion With Sichuan Pepper Flavor

A longtime favorite of mine. A wide noodle with scalloped edges. These have the bonus of a thin edge and thicker center, giving a delicate as well as hearty aspect. The flavor is very good – a soy bump, some onion hit, then the Sichuan pepper oil. It all works together magnificently. Original review

#8: Hi-Lai Foods Lai Noodle

Hi-Lai Foods Lai Noodle

The noodle comes out just perfectly with a very hearty chew and quality. The flavor is wonderful – notes of Sichuan peppercorn intermingle with soy and this charming Vegan mince that has a sweetness that lingers around the palate and then ducks in and out. Everything I love about Taiwanese dry noodle with a unique addition. Original review

#7: Little Couples Chicken Rice Flavor Dry Noodle

Little Couples Chicken Rice Flavor Dry Noodle

Another broad noodle variety – this time paired with sauces that impart an excellent chicken rice flavor. This is absolutely excellent stuff and they’ve also come out with a Fish Head Casserole variety which is equally delicious and unique. Original review

#6: Kung Fu Noodles Premium Goose Oil With Sichuan Pepper & Hot Chili

Kung Fu Noodles Premium Goose Oil With Sichuan Pepper & Hot Chili

I’d never seen a variety of noodle paired with goose oil before, but I’m certainly glad I had the opportunity to try this one. The spicy bump in this one is great, and the noodles are high quality. The goose oil makes the dish very rich and luxuriant – a very unique and innovative experience. Original review

#5: Little Cook Thailand Green Curry Chicken

Little Cook Thailand Green Curry Chicken

This bowl, in fact, is two bowls. One you steep the noodles in. The second? Drain the broth from the first by poking holes in the lid and pour into it. The noodle is accompanied by a spicy green curry and chunks of vegetable and real chicken. The broth slurping soup worked well too. Original review

#4: Mom’s Dry Noodle Sichuan Spicy Duck Blood Bean Vermicelli

Mom’s Dry Noodle Sichuan Spicy Duck Blood Bean Vermicelli

If you’re fan of rich and savory food, this will make you quite pleased. I’m not usually a fan of bean vermicelli, but it’s like they were tailor-made for this variety and work so well. The broth is spicy and very rich – large pieces of coagulated duck blood are ubiquitous and really add a lot in the way of texture and flavor. Adventurous and amazing. Original review

#3: Mom’s Dry Noodle Dan Dan Noodle

Mom’s Dry Noodle Dan Dan Noodle

The noodles came out with a very nice chew. They aren’t mushy whatsoever and have a confident backbone. The flavor is very good as well. The notes of sesame, Sichuan pepper oil, Sichuan pepper in the dry mix, sesame sauce as well as soy sauce all work together and play well with each other; nobody’s feet get stepped on. Simple yet complex. Original review

#2: A-Sha LaoTao Beef & Tendon Noodle

A-Sha LaoTao Beef & Tendon Noodle

I found the red box version of this range to be my favorite – until I tried this one! Just lavish and succulent – beef that melts in your mouth and upgraded with tendon meat, the noodle and broth and meat harmonize in a symphony that peaks with a flavorful crescendo. The other two in the range in the red box and the seasonal Wagyu are also absolutely top nothc and worth a try. Original review

#1: Mom’s Dry Noodle Scallop & Hua Diao Wine Chicken Noodle Soup

Mom's Dry Noodle Scallop & Hua Diao Wine Chicken Noodle Soup

After years of reviewing chicken flavor instant noodles, – and I’ve tried hundreds, this is far and away the finest I’ve had the pleasure to sample. The noodles are thin and of good quality. The broth is rich, flavorful and complex; a very gourmet experience – from the Hua Diao wine, the whole pieces of chicken with large bones present, and scallop flavor, this is just a sumptuous bowl that runs the gamut from a fine dining restaurant to something cooked at home for hours. Absolute perfection. Original review
