#2712: Maggi 2-Minute Noodles Masala Spicy (Export)

#2712: Maggi 2-Minute Noodle Masala Spicy (Export) - India

Today, it’s probably the most popular variety in India – Maggi Masala. If you ask anyone in India about instant noodles, they’ve heard of this one. I actually got this one up in Canada at Walmart (yep – they have Walmart in Canada). Here’s a little from Wikipedia about this one – ...see full post

#2704: Maggi Cuppa Chilly Chow

#2704: Maggi Cuppa Chilly Chow

Found this one down in Pleasanton, California during our road trip to visit family in August. Boy – that was a journey! We took Miles (almost 2 years old) and Miri (8 months old). I can say that car seats would be comfy I think but if I were that age I sure wouldn’t want to sit in one for that long – I think the way down was 18 hours and we broke the drive back into two chunks – I think altogether that was about 24 hours with all the stops. ...see full post

#2685: Nissin Cup Noodles Veggi Manchow

#2685: Nissin Cup Noodles Veggi Manchow - India - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

This is one we found at an Indian grocery in Pleasanton, California this Summer. I really like the fact that India has so many different instant noodle varieties and that I’ve not tried so many of them – like every one that I find is a little precious gem. Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about Manchow – ...see full post

#2678: Maggi Hot Heads Barbeque Pepper Noodles

#2678: Maggi Hot Heads Barbeque Pepper Noodles - India - The Ramen Raster - instant noodles

Here’s another from the spicy Hot Heads series from Maggi India. From the picture, it certainly looks tasty – although the picture doesn’t show a barbeque pepper but an onion or shallot. Regardless, I would have to say the onion is my favorite vegetable. I could eat onions on anything – Well, maybe not pie. Unless it’s a meat pie. I’m talking a dessert kind of pie – yeah, I wouldn’t prefer onions on that. But who knows. Alright, enough of this – let us have a look! ...see full post

#2646: Ching’s Secret Schezwan Instant Noodles

#2646: Ching's Secret Schezwan Instant Noodles - India - The Ramen Rater - Ranveer Ching

I remember the first time I heard about Ching’s Secret – I was very curious about this whole concept of Chinese food in India. As it turns out ‘Desi Chinese’ is kind of like American Chinese food insofar as Chinese bringing their food to a foreign country and adapting it to the tastes of the locals in order to sell more of it. This is a four pack and I would now like to make a formal complaint. ...see full post

#2639: Maggi Hot Heads Peri Peri Noodles

#2639: Maggi Hot Heads Peri Peri Noodles - India - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

There are a few varieties in this Hot Heads series and I now have all of them. The first I reviewed was the one that’s the hottest – the green chilli. My wife Kit ordered me one from Amazon as we couldn’t find it locally. Well this summer we took a trip to northern California and found a couple great Indian grocery stores – and they had all of them. Sweet! Here’s a little about what peri peri means from Wikipedia – ...see full post

#2626: Nissin Cup Noodles Mazedaar Masala

#2626: Nissin Cup Noodles Mazedaar Masala - India - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Found this one at New India Bazar while in Pleasanton, California this summer. Probably the biggest Indian grocery I’ve been in which was pretty cool. I spent a little time searching for mazedaar but really didn’t find anything, so if you know what makes this ‘mazdaar masala,’ let me know – that would be great. Anyways, let’s check out this mazedaar masala! ...see full post

#2599: Maggi Cuppa Masala

#2599: Maggi Cuppa Masala - India - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Found this one in California! I’ve been curious about Indian grocery stores lately as each one has had a different variety or two I’ve not reviewed. Honestly, the more reviews I do, the closer I get to doing a top ten India list. A ways to go though! Here’s a little about Maggi instant noodles in India from Wikipedia – ...see full post

#2587: Sunfeast Yippee! Noodles Magic Masala

#2587: Sunfeast Yippee! Noodles Magic Masala - India - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles ramen

Here’s one from a brand I’ve never tried before. I also must say that I really love exclamatory instant noodle names. Yippee! is probably about the happiest name I’ve come across. It seems that the closer to the end of the alphabet they get, the more interesting they are. Not only that, but someone on YouTube recommends I try them and there is one in my hamper, so I think hey – what better time to try? I got these at a local Indian supermarket in Bellevue, Washington. Let’s check ’em out! ...see full post

Well, I found quite a few of these new packaged versions recently at an Indian market in Bellevue, Washington. Now, this is what they call ‘Desi Chinese’ food. What’s that? Let’s ask Wikipedia – ...see full post

#2464: TRDP Mario Masala Noodles - India - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

This is one I found a few weeks ago looking at an Indian grocery in Bellevue, Washington. I’ve never seen nor heard of this one before and thought it looked kind of interesting. I rarely find much if anything new locally and so this was a score. Let’s check it out! ...see full post
