#3222: Jinmailang Cup Noodles Vegetable Flavor – United States

#3222: Jinmailang Cup Noodles Vegetable Flavor - United States

This is an interesting one. Made in China for the US market. I found this one at a Fred Meyer supermarket here in Lynnwood – the last place I’d expect to see something like this. Not a complaint by any means – nice to see more diversity at domestic grocery stores. Curious what vegetable this one will taste like – broccoli? Peas? Bell peppers? Let’s find out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, tofu puff, scallion, and coriander. Noodles had a nice little fluff to them. Broth was rich and had a good kind of mixed vegetable taste to it. Warm and comforty for a vegetable variety. The inclusion of lots of vegetables like cabbage really bumped this one out. 4.0 out o 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 6921555527276.

#3218: Nakaki Foods Tomato Ramen - Japan

So here’s what the folks at Japan Crate had to say about this variety -“The typical broth base for ramen in Japan are shio (salt), shoyu (soy sauce), miso (soybean paste), and tonkotsu (pork bone). Known for their konjac noodles, Nakaki Foods’ version adds an unusual twist of tomato flavoring this winter season for a new refreshing taste on the classic ramen dish.’

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, spring onion, Velveeta cheese, and baked chicken with  NuTek Salt For Life. The noodles are so weird I can’t handle it. They’re like chewing crumbly gel wrist rests I think – I dunno. Tubes of overcooked Jell-O gelatin? But they’re fascinating all the same. Tomato broth has a very good taste to it which I enjoyed. A very unique combo here which also is only 84 calories for the whole pack, but still so weird. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4976166014426.

#3157: TIEasy Traditional Scallion Sliced Noodle - Taiwan

I got an email asking if I’d like to try a new noodle and of course I said yes. Turns out the fellow who wants to distribute it is up in Vancouver, BC. So I emailed him while we were up there and we met up at Foodyworld in Richmond. He gave me this and another variety as well as a pack with different kinds of noodles that contain vegetable – like a purple yam noodle, pumpkin noodle, etc. This was really cool – we chatted for a few and two days later, I’m giving these noodles a try. Let’s check them out! By the way TIEasy is short for Take IT Easy.

#3038: Wu-Mu Jing Xiang Ban Mian Ramen with Fried Green Onion - Taiwan

Thought today would be a good day for some fried green onions! The kind folks at Wu-Mu sent these over a little while back and I thought I’d better review it! Here’s what they have to say about it –

●The wavy noodles reach another level, the middle of them are thick while the both sides of them are thin and curly. The sauce is easily adsorbed on the noodles, creating a better taste!
●The carefully selected soy sauce, 100% brewed and no preservatives.
●The sweetness of the sauce and the fragrance of Scallion blend perfectly in the mouth, create a rich flavor.

Sounds nice – let’s check it out!

Today we kick things off on this interesting Meet The Manufacturer series with Vite Ramen’s Vegan option. If you didn’t know, there are three varieties from Vite Ramen – at least initially. Also, just so you know at the outset of this and the following reviews, these are prototypes. From what I’ve been told, this is what you’ll be getting, however the sachets in the final iteration will look different. So let’s give this first one a try!

The broth isn’t extremely salty, and had a kind of chicken mushroom stew feel to it. Bits of cabbage and other vegetables were here and there and of good quality. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. No bar code.

#2972: Bowlfull Vegetable Flavour Instant Noodle Soup

Oh yeah are you ready? Are you? Man, you’re going to think I’m nuts, but I’m a huge fan of store brand instant noodles. Why? Simple – I love the hunt. I really like to go somewhere and say ‘ah ha – I haven’t tried this one,’ put it in the handbasket and move on. Well a few weeks ago we went to Lansdowne Centre, a neat mall in Richmond, BC. We keep finding different places to visit up there which totally rocks. In the mall, there’s a bunch of store of course. The mall really is kind of a blast from the past – very Canadian and looks like it was built in the 70’s – lots of mirrored things abound. What got us there was that we saw this sign saying ‘Dollarama’ when we’d go up to Richmond every time and I thought ‘hmmm… A Canadian dollar store sounds interesting…’ So we check it out and they had their own store brand. They’re made in China for the chain of Dollarama stores and called Bowlfull. Sounds interesting. Yeah – if it sounds interesting, I’, all in. I don’t care if I like it or not – it’s something new, and that’s what my whole instant noodle journey has been about. Let’s crack open this 25 cent pack of noodles and see how things turn out.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander and spring onion. Prepared according to package ‘side dish instruction.’ Basically, cook,m drain, seasoning sachet. The noodles were alright – nothing to write home about really. However I would say the one thing to write home about would be the flavor – and maybe an angry tone to thje letter might be in order. It’s salty and tastes like a drunken teen got a hold of the pizza seasonings. I mean really – I don’t even think the idea of this being drained should be on the package as it turns into a real trainwreck of a thing. I can’t think of a lot of things that would be more of a bummer than looking forward to this, making it this way, then eating it. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 667888102167.

Common Ground

While we were in Canada, the G7 summit was coming to a close and boom – lots of turmoil. President Trump (still hard to type that) just blasts Trudeau with idiotic banter about how Canada is ruining the USA and how Justin Trudeau is such a horrible guy. Well, I’d just like to say here that The Ramen Rater likes Canada a lot. Trump is a jerk – I apologize for his comments.
