#3947: Nissin Cup Noodles Roasted Duck Sweet Onion Soup – Germany

#3924: Nissin Cup Noodles Roasted Duck Sweet Onion Soup - Germany

I believe this is the last of the German Cup Noodles I was sent from Germany – big thanks to Anna from Nissin DE for sending these along! We arrive at duck. I so wish I could just go to the deli and say ‘yeah, can I have 50 grams of duck?’ Here in the US, nobody sells duck. Only place you’re going to find it is hanging whole duck at Asian grocery stores.I will admit that when I visited Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan, I was treated to some of the finest food in the world – and some of my favorites featured duck. Duck is very popular in Southeast Asia. Wish it were here. Ah well. I dream of someday returning to where I feel I belong. Let’s give this a try! ...see full post

#3945: Nissin 50th Anniversary Top Ramen Chicken Ramen Noodle Soup – United States

#3945: Nissin Top Ramen Chicken Ramen Noodle Soup - United States

I’ve of course reviewed Top Ramen chicken flavor before. However, this is a special release version for their 50th Anniversary. Since 1971, Nissin’s been churning out Top Ramen – and I really appreciate that. The first variety I tried was a Nissin product, which is fitting since they were the makers of the first instant noodle in 1958. Let’s pay tribute and required honor to this, the noodle that introduced the United States to instant noodles. ...see full post

#3643: Nissin Hot & Spicy Fire Wok Molten Chili Chicken Flavor - United States

This one’s the hottest of the three varieties offered in the new Nissin Fire Wok range. The first two were moderately spicy, but this one’s supposed to the the be all end all. Thanks to Nissin’s First Taste Club, this showed up a few weeks back – always appreciated! Let’s give it a try! ...see full post

#3930: Doll Ramen Noodles Shrimp Wonton Flavour – Hong Kong

#3930: Doll Ramen Noodles Shrimp Wonton Flavour - Hong Kong

I must admit, it’s been an interesting stroll down memory lane retrying these about ten years after I had them previously. I remember back then I would walk every day to the Asian grocery store, pick a pack, come home, then review it. Much has changed since those reviews pre-1000, that’s for sure. This one I remember being quite nice. Let’s check it out! ...see full post

#3926: Mamee Monster x Daebak Ghost Pepper Kari Lontong – Malaysia

#3988: Mamee Monster x Daebak Ghost Pepper Kari Lontong - Malaysia

Well, shoot… This is the last of the Mamee Ghost Pepper varieties I’ve got here. On one hand, I am breathing a sigh of relief – these have been spicy! But on the other, I do rather enjoy the whole concept of conquering a spicy noodle by eating the whole thing. Lontong is a kind of pressed rice tube/cake which in itself doesn’t have any flavor, but the sauce it comes with certainly does. I first encountered it with Mamee Chef’s Kari Lontong – a variety I thoroughly enjoy! Let’s give this one a try! ...see full post
