#2346: Knorr Chatt Patta Instant Noodles - Pakistan - The Ramen Rater

Here’s another one from Colin – thanks! I did a little research and really came up with very little. I did find there is a kind of spicy, savory snack mix with the same name, but this is a soup noodle and now a snack noodle so I’m a little confused. This one’s being reviewed actually on New Year’s Eve! Let’s check it out.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and white onion. The noodles were good – in quantity and quality with a nice little bounce. The broth was definitely not my cup of tea. It was kind of a sour, tart and acrid affair – maybe like fermented leafy vegetables? I don’t know, but I really wasn’t a fan of the taste. Nonetheless, its unique flavor was compelling. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8961014177510.

#1510: Knorr Quick Serve Macaroni Wonton Broth

Next Friday is Halloween and we’ve got some plans with Andy this weekend! Thought he might like this one for breakfast today! He’s been curious about expanding his palate a little bit lately since our trip to Malaysia – something I really like. It took me a while to get to the age that I wanted to be more adventurous with food, and it’s great to see him starting to explore.

Here we are at a local farm and pumpkin patch. Fed all sorts of animals – was a lot of fun! Andy’s wearing the hat and shirt we found in Langkawi!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, add macaroni to 530ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add is contents of sachet and stir. Enjoy!

Here’s the macaroni.

The soup base sachet.

Has a seafood scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added prawns and Chinese long beans. The macaroni was pretty good – very thin walled. The broth wasn’t bad either, although it was so thin and there was so much of it. It had a light seafood taste which was good. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. Andy really liked it! EAN bar code 4898828051115.

In the United States, something like this is more prevalent. Cheese and bacon do have their definite pluses! Get it on Amazon!

A recipe from Knorr Bangladesh – using macaroni.

#1437: Knorr Quick Serve Macaroni Abalone & Chicken Flavour

Here’s something you wouldn’t find in the United States usually! Macaroni and cheese is a common thing here; almost a national dish! But macaroni and chicken and abalone – in a broth? Nope – not something most would even consider. One thing’s for sure: macaroni is almost always accompanied by cheese here. Let’s see what it’s like cheese free!

Here’s the import/distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). Contains egg and chicken powder.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, boil 530ml water. Add macaroni and return to boil. Cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add contents of sachet. Stir well and enjoy!

Macaroni noodles.

The seasoning sachet.

Has a very well balanced abalone and chicken scent that is interesting.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added red, yellow and orange bell pepper, coriander, sweet onion and grilled chicken. The noodles came out pretty well; they had a slight al-dente chew to them which was alright. The broth has a definite chicken abalone hit to it. Not overwhelming either. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 4898828052815.

Here’s a Knorr advert from Hong Kong. They also make quick serve rotini and penne it seems!

#1301: Knorr Quick Serve Macaroni Shrimp Broth

Here’s another one my lovely wife got for me on our trip to Canada for my birthday last year – thanks! Interesting – tube shaped ramen? A couple of brands make these – kind of a neat twist on it. Let’s check it out!

The distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). Contains crustacean.

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, add macaroni to 530ml water and cook for 3 minutes. Add contents of sachet, stir and enjoy.

This is one bizarre commercial! Check it out!

#1050: Knorr Japanese Pork Bone Flavour Quick Serve Macaroni

I’ve had other macaroni quick serve products before by a different brand. I always thought these were interesting. Usually the only thing you’d find in the United States coupled with macaroni would be cheese, but elsewhere, the options are much different. Let’s check it out.

Distributor sticker (click image to enlarge).

Back of the package (click to enlarge).

Usually I put the noodle block on my table and take a pic, but I figured that could be messy with these.

The seasoning packet.

Has a salty smell.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green onion, black forest ham and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The macaroni is pretty good – a little crumbly but nicely sized with thin walls that hold broth. The broth is quite salty and has a familiar yet odd taste. Kind of like if you boiled a ton of hot dogs in a small sauce pan with the same water for a few weeks with a slight smoky flavor. It’s a weirdness I both find fascinating yet dissatisfying. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 4898829052648.

Not sure if this is the ‘official’ commercial or done by film students, but it’s interesting either way.

#504: Knorr Pizza Instant Noodles

Yes, that’s right – it’s pizza flavored noodles. More interesting? They’re from Pakistan! So here’s yet another show of force in international fusion cuisine! Pizza is Italian, ramen noodles are a Japanese thing, and Pakistan is, well, another country! Well, let’s dig in!

Single packet. The packet itself had an interesting texture to it – kind of soft.

Here’s the seasoning – smelled kind of like a party pizza you’d find in the frozen section at the supermarket.

Click image to enlarge. Here we go with some pizza flavored instant noodles. The noodles aren’t too bad – pretty standard fare like something Maruchan or Nissin would have as far as a domestic US product. Not a lot of noodles though for two cups of water. The broth had a kind of ‘party pizza’ like flavor to it – was quite strange but not bad. Very unique and truly multinational! 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Wow check this out – a ten minute cartoon about Knorr Noodles! Not only that, there are lots more of them!

This guy’s the man – party pizza, ramen, bacon and cheese – oh and hot sauce!

#368: Knorr Chili Pork Flavour Cup Noodles

So here’s a weird looking one – something my sis brought me back from Canada. Chili Pork flavor sounds good in theory, but very curious how it’ll be in practice. Also, This is the first Knorr brand instant noodle I’ve reviewed; kind of surprising to be honest.

So I can’t exactly figure out where this comes from, so I’m going to play it safe and go with the labeling. It says its imported in Ontario, Canada., but upon a web search I found Thailand seemed the most logical of places.

Oil, powder seasoning and veggies / fake meat.

That seasoning oil can look a little nasty at times, can’t it?

Click image to enlarge. So here’s the finished product. Not bad actually. There were a lot of chewy fake pork bits and pieces in there… Some veggies but not a lot. The broth was good and tasty – a good smack of chili flavor. The noodles were as expected – I mean it’s a cup of soup kind of thing so they were a little weaker than a package. Nice that they weren’t spongy. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Is it me or are they chanting “pudding pudding pudding pudding pudding, pudding!”

Best baseball team period.
