#3438: Nissin Cup Noodles Big Extra Spicy Tonkotsu – Hong Kong

#3438: Nissin Cup Noodles Big Extra Spicy Tonkotsu - Hong Kong

I haven’t reviewed something for Hong Kong in a little while and this one was sent by a reader residing over there – thanks again! I remember getting about 56 varieties from Nissin HK when I did the Meet The Manufacturer series – that was pretty intense! Let’s check the temperature on this spicy tonkotsu! ...see full post

#3425: Nissin U.F.O. Chow Mein Noodles Spicy Beef Artificial Flavor – Hong Kong

#3425: Nissin U.F.O. Chow Mein Noodles Spicy Beef Artificial Flavor - Hong Kong

It’s like a parallel universe! Where am I?! WHO CAN EXPLAIN THIS??

Okay so what’s the problem? This is from Hong Kong. It says flavor not flavour. I don’t understand. ...see full post

#3400: EDO Pack Kumamoto Flavor Noodles – Hong Kong

#3319: EDO Pack Kumamoto Flavor Noodles - Hong Kong

Another one from Smart’n’Save in Richmond, BC’s Lansdowne Centre. Kumamoto flavor would definitely point towards tonkotsu; not a clue what else it could be. This is a product of Singapore, but labeling definitely makes it clear to me that it’s just for the Hong Kong market. Let’s check it out! ...see full post

#3346: Sau Tao Tom Yum Kung Flavour Ho Fan – Hong Kong

#3252: Sau Tao Tom Yum Kung Flavour Ho Fan - Hong Kong

Well, what have we here? This one contains a broad flat noodle made with rice. The straight noodle ramen variety from this range is on the 2019 Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time – super tasty stuff! Let’s give it a try! ...see full post

#3342: EDO Pack Sesame Oil Flavour Noodle – Hong Kong

#3242: EDO Pack Sesame Oil Flavour Noodle - Hong Kong

Alright so this one is made in Singapore, but it’s made for the Hong Kong market. It’s funny how products are made elsewhere for other countries, right? Well, you honestly should be used to it by now – Take the myriad of products in your home. If you have a Big Mouth Billy Bass on the wall, it’s made in China. Singing bass don’t seem like something very popular in China – could be wrong but who knows. Anyways, let’s crack this open and see what we have. ...see full post

#3282: EDO Pack Spicy Flavour Noodle – Hong Kong

#3282: EDO Pack Spicy Flavour Noodle - Hong Kong

Okay so now that I’ve been doing a lot of weight loss and walking like a fiend (one might call me a White Walker – Game of Thrones reference, sorry), I’ve been running through shoes like crazy. I really like these $30 pairs I’ve been finding at Walmart up in Canada, but as you can guess, after a week there are holes in them. We went up in search for a new pair for me again (no luck grrr) and and during our time up there we hit Lansdowne Centre, a mall in Richmond. Well, there was a new store (at least I think it’s new but I don’t know how we could have missed it) that has a staggeringly wonderful noodle selection. The place is called Smart N Save and they’ve got some really neat stuff in there, including this one. Let’s check it out. ...see full post

#3171: Doll Bowl Noodle Satay & Beef Flavour – Hong Kong

#3171: Doll Bowl Noodle Satay & Beef Flavour - Hong Kong

Here’s one I found up in Canada at Aberdeen Centre in a shop that was rife with Hello Kitty plushies and exotic candies and snacks next to the food court – I want to say it was called something like Paint Box or Art Box. This one was a nice surprise as it’s been tough to find Doll Brand varieties other than their export pack versions around here. I reall would love to do a Meet The Manufacturer series with Doll, so if you’re listening, please contact me! Let’s check out this Beef & Satay variety from Hong Kong! ...see full post

Top Ten Best Instant Noodles Of All Time 2019

Top Ten Best Instant Noodles Of All Time 2019

This is my list of my all time favorites (compiled up to review #3132). These are the best and most memorable varieties – some you’ll be able to find easily, some you won’t. In the images you see, you’ll see garnished bowls of noodles. Note – reviewing is done BEFORE products have anything externally added by myself, and I follow directions on the package – for better or for worse. I should also note that going forward, the official last day for companies to submit varieties to be considered for the annual top ten will be January 31st. That’s enough – let’s have a look at The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time 2019 Edition! ...see full post

#3143: Sau Tao Tom Yum Kung Flavour Rice Vermicelli – Hong Kong

#3143: Sau Tao Tom Yum Kung Flavour Rice Vermicelli - Hong Kong

Found this up in Canada at Osaka Supermarket at Yaohan Centre in Richmond, BC. I must admit that the first time I tried one of Sau Tao’s Tom Yum Kung varieties I was kind of surprised. Tom Yum from Hong Kong? That’s a way for Thailand! But one of my favorites lately has been their straight noodle variety. This one’s a rice vermicelli – sounds interesting. Let’s check it out! ...see full post
