#3954: Shinsegae Mamee Daebak Ghost Pepper Cheese Spicy Chicken Flavour - Malaysia

My God yes! New varieties from Malaysia arrived the other day and I’m absolutely thrilled! Do you know anything about Malaysia? If you did, you would know it’s perfection. I can’t think of a more awesome place. Really. Okay, I love Taiwan and Thailand too. Every place I’ve had the fortune to be able to visit has been just amazing – Mlaysia was the first though. I see YouTube folks that go and visit these amazing places all the time and I envy them. I officially BEG YOU – Mamee Doubledecker, bring my family for a visit? I’ll do a ton of videos and everything. It would be so awesome – just fly us over and give us a couch to sleep on! Well, I am speaking for myself; I think my wife and kids would need a little more – but please? Somebody! I will tell you, Malaysia has the flavors you desire if you can’t get enough of bright flavors and innovative taste. This one will be interesting – ultra spicy. Cheese. Let’s give it a go! ...see full post

#3952: Thai Chef Artificial Duck Flavour - Thailand

It used to be that I would shy away for the odd duck flavored instant noodle that would cross my desk, however these days I see them and a smile crossed my aging face. Duck. It reminds of when I have been in Asia, a place I so wish to see again. These are made by the same company that makes the MAMA range of noodle products, undoubtedly one you’re familiar with if you are a noodle aficionado. Let’s give this duck noodle a try as I look back wistfully at the days of dreams in Asia past and hopefully the future untold they will hold. ...see full post

Found this in a Zenpop.jp box – you get seven varieties of instant noodles to try! I would say that almost every time I’ve gotten one of these, I’ve never tried any of them before which is really awesome. Use coupon code THERAMENRATER for a groovy discount! Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Acecook with some more innovation! With an original square-shaped cup, these Acecook yakisoba (焼きそば, fried soba noodles) are a treat for your taste buds. Ready to enjoy after a quick boil, and having drained the water, the noodles reproduce the texture of handmade noodles. It’s just like you’d make a dish of fried noodles at home, but instant! The dashi-flavored sauce together with the bonito is a perfect combination for an enjoyable meal.’ Let’s check it out! ...see full post

#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 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
