#22: Nongshim Ansungtangmyun Noodle Soup


Nong Shim: Ansungtangmyun Noodle Soup
Stars: ***
This stuff was very odd – I enjoy odd things,
so that’s why the 3 stars. It was like an udon
style noodle first off, and came with a
seasoning packet that was enormous. I ended
up having jalapeno bread with it because it comes
out more like a hot flavor spaghetti than anything. ...see full post

#13: Sapporo Ichiban Chow Mein Japanese Style Noodles


Sapporo Ichiban: Chow Mein
Stars: ***1/2
Notes: Now this stuff is quite different – and quite good as well. It definitely
tastes like a greasy, heavily sauce laden noodle. The broth is dark brown
mainly because of all the soy, but it’s not all that salty. It is quite good
and I highly recommend it. One of the more compelling packets in this one is a little cellophane pouch of ‘green laver.’ It’s seaweed powder and adds a delicately mossy green shade to the concoction if added like pepper evenly to the top. This is a must for the adventurous and keen on the weird factor.

#9: Sutah Cup Noodle



Sutah: Cup Noodle
Stars: **
Notes: What a strange little cup noodle… A deep red broth with some strange
little bits of something. Not sure what they are – possibly soto? Not sure. One
of the items I was happily able to purchase across the street at the Markette Deli
on State Street in Marysville, Washington. UPC bar code 8801073101197

#6: Vifon Nam Vang Oriental Style Instant Noodle



Vifon: Nam Vang
Stars: ** 1/2
Notes: This stuff wasn’t bad – basically a typical salty rice noodle snack ramen from Vietnam. It would not do well with an egg though, as the noodles weren’t the most strong and a lot of them turned to an almost gelatinous state – not from overcooking I assure you. Other than the weak fortitude of the noodles, the broth was fine as were the dried vegetables. ...see full post

#5: Vifon Phnom Penh Style Asian Style Instant Rice Noodles



Vifon: Hu Tiu Nam Vang [“Phnom Penh” style] Asian Style Instant Rice Noodles
Stars: ***1/2
Notes: Good bowl of noodles – Rice noodles with floating vegetable things [don’t think they were mushrooms, but they definately were onions] and a clear broth. The broth was quite good and went very nicely with the noodles. Probably the best cambodian style noodles I’ve had. ...see full post
