#4076: Nissin Cup Noodles Stir Fry Rice With Noodles Thai Yellow Curry Flavor – United States

#4076: Nissin Cup Noodles Stir Fry Rice With Noodles Thai Yellow Curry Flavor - United States

Big thanks to James from Lakeside, CA for sending this over! At first I was curious how they would go about doing this and then I opened the lid. Crushed noodles. I had a quick ‘a-ha’ moment and remember way back I reviewed good old #1506. 1506 was Nissin Mug – which was a variety from India and almost the same thing – instant noodles that are in rice sized lengths. This however has both the short crushed noodles AND rice. I’m very intrigued and curious about this. This right here is the kind of innovation and unique thing I have been talking about – and seeing something like this in the US market is a thrill, honestly. Let’s take a look and give this one a try! ...see full post

#4064: Ramen Express By Chef Woo Hotter & Spicier Chili – United States

#4064: Ramen Express By Chef Woo Hotter & Spicier Chili - United States

To be honest, this makes me very happy. I’ve really found the Ramen Express varieties to be quite good, and now they’re easily found at Walmart. I’m not extremely keen on the cup versions (although I haven’t had the new shrimp variety so maybe they’ve changed; I will soon), but the packs have a great noodle and very nice flavors. I’m unsure if this is different than the origininal hotter and spicier variety; this one tacks ‘chili’ on the end and has different packaging. Saw it at Walmart a couple of days ago. ...see full post

The Definitive Guide To Indomie Mi Goreng

Definitive Guide Series – Samyang Buldak * Nongshim Shin Ramyun * Indomie Mi Goreng

Before I started reviewing instant noodles on a regular basis, I fell in love with a product that was cheap, exotic, and relatively easy to access. That product was Indomie Mi Goreng. I remember when we would venture out of the small town of Anacortes, Washington in the northwest of the United States, I would hope that I would get the chance to visit an Asian grocery store in search of something new to try. I remember after I discovered Indomie Mi Goreng products being just head over heels about their Satay variety. I would get tons of it – 20 or 30 packs. My parents didn’t mind; it was inexpensive. I would share with my friends who hadn’t tried. This is one seriously popular product around the world and just perfection with a fried egg. In this guide, I’m going to go over the history of Indomie’s flagship Mi Goreng, how I prepare it, and some little known facts about it. Sit back, put on your reading glasses, watch me make some, and prepare to learn a little about one of the wonders of the instant noodle world. ...see full post

#4062: A1 Mi Kari Laksa Curry Laksa Noodle – Malaysia

This is a special one I’m posting today – it’s the subject of a short film I’m doing as I type this about how I review! I want to thank a fellow instant noodle enthusiast named Andres who was kind enough to donate this to me yesterday – he’s a local who has visited a lot of places in search of instant noodle varieties! This one was found up in Canada. ...see full post
