Momofuku Ando Speaks: The Book I’ve Searched Years For

I’ve been looking for this book for years. Why? Because I not only enjoy instant noodles, I enjoy the history and lore around it. It fascinates me. Some people like comic books, other sports. For me, instant noodles are where it’s at. ...see full post

The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodle Bowls Of All Time 2020 Edition

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Instant Noodle Bowls Of All Time 2020 Edition

Bowls, cups, , trays, packs, and boxes. Well, I haven’t done a list of boxed or tray-style instant noodles – maybe that will come soon. But I think that separating these is important. The experience that a cup is meant for is different than a cup or bowl. Cups are more for a snack on the go, packs for when you’ve got a stove, and bowls are, well, for lunch. Although in the finished shots of these you’ll see them plated here, generally people will be looking at the bowl they came in, possibly using the plastic fork they came with, and tossing everything once they’re done. These are my favorites, current as of review #3545. Let’s have a look at The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodle Bowls Of All Time 2020 Edition. ...see full post

#3547: Nissin Miojo Nissin Lamen Sabor Galinha Caipira – Brazil

#3470: Nissin Miojo Nissin Lamen Sabor Galinha Caipira - Brazil

This one came from Mr. Saturn – thanks again! I know galinha is a kind of young hen – a little oilier than standard chicken, but not exactly up on the whole caipira. I’m getting ‘bush cutter’ which seems a little odd. Maybe one of you will know. Not only that, this is review #3470 and I think 3470 was a standard of terminal emulation from back in the finer days of computer stuff. Let’s give it a try! ...see full post

#3538: Miojo Nissin Lamen Sabor Costela - Brazil

Costela translated in Google to ‘rib.’ I don’t know if this is pork or beef rib though, that is something I would like to know. I looked on google and found more pork than beef, so going with pork. Fingers crossed. ...see full post

#3513: Nissin Demae Ramen Original Soy Sauce Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup – United States

#3513: Nissin Demae Ramen Original Soy Sauce Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup - United States

Last night, we had to do a Walmart Neighborhood Market run. It’s basically just a grocery store Walmart – kind of nice – wide aisles, lots of stuff… Anyways, I always look in the noodle aisle. There are two areas actually; domestic and ‘ethnic.’ Well, this was in the ethnic category. What is very interesting is that this is made in California. What’s kind of funny is how it says ‘#1 Ramen Noodle Soup In Hong Kong.’ This version is much different. The Hong Kong version includes fishcake with the little delivery guy’s face on it. Also, the bowls are more like the king cups – much taller. ...see full post

Yep. So let’s check it out! ...see full post

#3431: Nissin Raoh Grapefruit Shio Ramen – Japan

#3431: Nissin Raoh Grapefruit Shio Ramen - Japan

I’m getting grapefruit from a Google translation, but it might be yuzu. Got this up in Canada at a rad store called Smart’n’Save – it’s my personal Disneyland I think. They’ve got a lot of varieties I’ve not seen elsewhere – like a specialty shop for snacks, noodles, and treats from Hong Kong and China and Japan. Let’s give this one a try! ...see full post
