I saw a new variety of noodle at our nearby 99 Ranch Market in Edmonds, Washington. It was a tom yum which sounds great – but it was from Taiwan! That was a little surprising, so I contacted the company producing it. As it turns out, they’re a Thai restaurant chain in Taiwan. Let’s see what they sent over!
Something new I’ve not ever heard of – goose oil? Apparently it really makes foods richer. It sounds good too – I love Taiwanese dry noodle varieties. Let’s check ’em out!

I’m really bummed as this is the last of the three varieties by Shi Zu Ren I have had the privilege to sample. They’re very different – so many sachets it’s mind boggling too. Just look below!

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!
The nice folks at MAMA (Thai President) sends over a big box of samples and more! Let’s check it out!
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!
