Here’s what they had to say about this particular variety – “Ebisoba Ichigen  is a ramen restaurant originally founded in Sapporo City, Hokkaido. Due to their very distinct taste and their success they have even expanded to Tokyo opening 2 shops in the capital city.

Ebisoba Ichigen’s unique feature and taste can be attributed to its use of shrimp broth into their soup base. The shrimp broth is delicately boiled with some of the freshest Hokkaido shrimp (including the heads!), to create this flavor which is highly sought after and truly one of a kind. This combination creates a very rich and savory broth with a hint of sweetness fro the shrimps. This box is the miso based broth perfectly combined with the shrimp flavor.

This is truly a ramen you don’t want to miss. Oftentimes some patrons believe the shrimp flavor to be too strong but the chefs have perfected the shrimp flavors in the pursuit of the perfect seafood broth.”

Wow – so this sounds really fancy – I’m enthused as I love shrimp – let’s see what we have!

Okay, so the noodles have an excellent chewiness and a great gauge – probably the thickest ramen I’ve had that hasn’t been considered udon. The broth has a tasty miso flavor – rich and deep. But that shrimp oil is just showy and giving; it’s like Warren Buffet at an orphanage giving. IT’s tasty – makes everything taste like an umami bomb made of prawns just was detonated in your mouth. Loved this and actually ate the whole thing. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.JAN bar code 4533446001059.

#3221: Samyang Foods Buldak Topokki Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen - South Korea

Spicy stuff! So this one is the latest of the standard pillow pack varieties of the ‘fire noodle’ series. For those of you who don’t know what topokki is, here’s a little something from Wikipedia –

Tteok-bokki (떡볶이) or stir-fried rice cakes is a popular Korean food made from small-sized garae-tteok (long, white, cylinder-shaped rice cakes) called tteokmyeon (떡면; “rice cake noodles”) or commonly tteok-bokki-tteok(떡볶이 떡; “tteok-bokki rice cakes”).[1][2] Fish cakes, boiled eggs, and scallions are some of the most commonly added ingredients. It can be seasoned with either spicy gochujang (chili paste) or non-spicy ganjang (soy sauce)-based sauce; the former being the prototype,[3] and the latter often called gungjung-tteok-bokki (royal court tteok-bokki). Today, variations also include currytteok-bokkicream saucetteok-bokkijajang-tteok-bokkiseafoodtteok-bokkigalbi-tteok-bokki and so on. Tteok-bokki is commonly purchased and eaten at bunsikjip (snack bars) as well as pojangmacha (street stalls).

Ingredients such as seafoodshort ribsinstant noodleschewy noodles are also added to the dish.

Haemultteok-bokki, (해물떡볶이; “seafood tteok-bokki“) uses seafood as a sub ingredient.

Galbi-tteok-bokki (갈비떡볶이; “short ribs tteok-bokki“) is a tteok-bokki uses short ribs as an ingredient.

Ra-bokki (라볶이; “instant noodles tteok-bokki“) and jjol-bokki (쫄볶이; “chewy noodles tteok-bokki“), are quite similar. They both add noodles to tteok-bokki. ra-bokki and jjol-bokki differs from the kind of noodles added to tteok-bokki. ra-bokki adds ramyeon noodle, and jjol-bokki adds chewy noodles which are used to make jjol-myeon.

I would say that topokki is one of the tastiest things I’ve had – whether a spicy one or cream cheese topokki – oh man that’s good too. Anyways, let’s check out this newest variety!

Check out this link and use coupon code RAMENRATER20OFF for 20% off any single box or subscription!Here’s what they had to say about this particular variety – “Kagoshima prefecture is located towards the souther part of Kyushu Island and is defined by it’s proximity to the sea.

Kyushu island, which also contains Hakata and Fukuoka, is the birthplace of tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen. Thus, Kagoshima ramen is predominantly tonkotsu based as well. This pack of Kagoshima Black Pork Ramen contains noodles from a non-fried and non-steamed recipe to maintain as much of the original flavor and texture as possible and the noodles are straight and slightly thicker picking up more of the broth.

The tonkotsu broth contains broth made from Black Pigs from Kagoshima and has a distinct vegetable taste which is slightly sweet. There is also a distinct “burnt onion” taste unique to Kagoshima ramen.”

Wow this one sounds awesome; let’s give it a try!

#3211: MyKuali Penang Gaeng Som Noodle - Malaysia

Well look here  something brand new from MyKuali! I think the last new thing they introduced was their fried noodle – their mee goreng. This one though – I’ve never heard of this before. Let’s look at Wikipedia and see what we can find –

Kaeng som or gaeng som[1] (Thaiแกงส้มpronounced [kɛ̄ːŋ sôm]) or Thai sour curry[2] is a sour and spicy fish curry or soup with vegetables popular in central Thailand.[3] The curry is characteristic for its sour taste, which comes from tamarind (makham). The recipe uses palm sugar (Thaiน้ำตาลปี๊บnamtan pip) to sweeten the curry.

Following the popularization of the dish, currently the favored vegetables include cauliflower, white radishcabbagechinese cabbagecarrotlong beans and asparagus, as well as cha om omelet.

The versions using shrimp instead of fish are more popular; kaeng som with shrimp and cha-om omelet is now a standard dish in Thailand. Other types may include pineapple or seafood. The common point, however, is that coconut milk is not used in this sour curry.[7]

Wow this sounds very interesting – a sweet and sour kind of curry – I’m definitely interested. Let’s check out this new cup from MyKuali!

Red Chef Pandan White Curry Noodle (New Recipe) - Malaysia

I was contacted by Red Chef and told they have changed their recipe for this one and that they’d like to send samples. Well, here’s one of them! Really curious how it will be. But first thing s first – what’s pandan? Here’s a bit from Wikipedia –

In India and Sri Lanka it is called Rampé and in Bangladesh it is called pulao pata (পোলাও পাতা ), along with the other variety of pandan there (Pandanus fascicularis), and is used to enhance the flavor of pulao, biryani and sweet coconut rice pudding, payesh if basmati rice is not used. It acts as a cheap substitute for basmati fragrance as one can use normal, non-fragrant rice and with the help of pandan the dish tastes and smells like basmati is used. It is called Ambemohor pat in Marathi; Ramba in Tamil, Biriyanikaitha in Malayalam, pandan wangi in Indonesian, hsun hmway (ဆွမ်းမွှေး) in Burmese, pandan in Visayan languages and Tagalog, ใบเตย bai tooey in Thai, rampe in Sinhala, ស្លឹកតើយ sleuk toi in Khmer, Daun Pandan in Nonya cooking,[3] Dứa thơm/lá nếp in Vietnamese, 七葉蘭 (Pinyin: Qi Lan Ye) in Chinese and बासमतिया पौधा ([bɑːsmət̪ɪjɑː pɑʊd̪ʱɑː]; “fragrant plant”) in Magahi and Bhojpuri due to its fragrance.

The leaves are used either fresh or dried, and are commercially available in frozen form in Asian grocery stores of nations where the plant does not grow. They have a nutty, botanical fragrance that is used as a flavor enhancer in Indian, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Burmese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Khmer, Laotian, Thai, Singaporean, Bruneian, Malaysian, Indonesian and Filipino cuisines, especially in rice dishes, desserts and cakes.

The leaves are sometimes steeped in coconut milk, which is then added to the dish. They may be tied in a bunch and cooked with the food. They may be woven into a basket which is used as a pot for cooking rice. Pandan chicken, (Thai: ไก่ห่อใบเตย, kai hor bai toei), is a dish of chicken parts wrapped in pandan leaves and fried. The leaves are also used as a flavoring for desserts such as pandan cake and sweet beverages. Filipino cuisine uses pandan as a flavoring in buko pandan fruit salad, as well as rice-based pastries such as suman and numerous sweet drinks and desserts.

Alright – let’s give this pandan white curry new recipe a go!
