#3551: Vite Ramen Sichuan Chili Crisp Instant Noodle Soup v1.2 PROTOTYPE – United States

#3551: Vite Ramen Sichuan Chili Crisp Instant Noodle Soup v1.2 PROTOTYPE - United States

Here’s we’ve got something new – a mashup of Vite Ramen and Fly By Jing Sichuan Chili Crisp! It’s kind of funny – I had just discovered chili crisp a week or two before I ended up having a conversation with the guys at Vite Kitchens about it. Turned out they were collaborating with Fly By Jing on this and sent me a bottle of it – good stuff! This is a prototype without packaging (you’re saying then what’s that above) – I snagged the pic and did that top image in Photoshop. So there. Let’s check it out! ...see full post

The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten South Korean Instant Noodles Of All Time 2020 Edition

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten South Korean Instant Noodles Of All Time 2020 Edition

This year has been tumultuous for The Ramen Rater – busy and hectic, and so this, the first of many Top Ten Lists slated for release during the year is delayed – sorry about that. There are my absolute favorite varieties, current as of review #3400, of which 383 are South Korean in origin. I also want to mention – don’t wear a track jacket when recording with a lapel mic – it came out awful and worse than the audio that was used from the camera.  All varieties are manufactured in South Korea. If you are a company interested in having your products showcased, please drop me a line. Let’s begin! ...see full post

Top Ten Japanese Instant Noodles Of All Time 2019 by The Ramen Rater

Top Ten Japanese Instant Noodles Of All Time 2019 by The Ramen Rater

This list usually comes out in January but there was an accident. Basically, I deleted the video I recorded back then! I redid the video earlier this month and so here we are. This list is current as of review number 3058. These are based solely on my personal taste and opinion. Some folks don’t like that and I was recently lectured that a company didn’t want to send samples because they were afraid I might not like their product and that I couldn’t be persuaded to give on company a better review over another. This made me proud I’m doing my job right. Let’s check the top ten Japanese list! ...see full post
