#3109: Wu-Mu Jing Xiang Ban Mian Ramen Soup – Chili Beef Flavor – Taiwan

#3109: Wu-Mu Jing Xiang Ban Mian Ramen Soup - Chili Beef Flavor - Taiwan

Today, we’ve got a nice one from Taiwan’s Wu-Mu. This is a newer variety that uses wide gauge noodles for a soup – something I find really interesting and not done nearly enough. Although these noodles are absolutely excellent in a dry noodle (without broth) setting, I think in soup they really excel too. Let’s see how these end up!

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!

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Taiwanese Instant Noodles Of All Time 2018 Edition

The noodles have a flat and broad gauge and an excellent chewiness I’ve come to expect from the A-Sha line of products. The flavor is very good – a kind of spicy, salty, slightly sweet and then this savoriness to it – lots of spices that I can really only describe as tasking like Taiwan. Original review

#6: Three Meters Noodles Shallot Taste

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Taiwanese Instant Noodles Of All Time 2018 Edition

Nice gauge and light chew. The flavor was just mind-blowingly good and I am thoroughly excited about this one. The shallot flavor is just right – not too salty, not too pushy – just exactly perfect. Original review

#5: Tseng Noodle Scallion With Sichuan Pepper Flavor

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Taiwanese Instant Noodles Of All Time 2018 Edition

A wide noodle with scalloped edges. These have the bonus of a thin edge and thicker center, giving a delicate as well as hearty aspect. The flavor is very good – a soy bump, some onion hit, then the Sichuan pepper oil. It all works together magnificently. Original review

#4: Little Cook Thailand Green Curry Instant Noodle

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Taiwanese Instant Noodles Of All Time 2018 Edition

This bowl, in fact, is two bowls. One you steep the noodles in. The second? Drain the broth from the first by poking holes in the lid and pour into it. The noodle is accompanied by a spicy green curry and chunks of vegetable and real chicken. The broth slurping soup worked well too. Original review

#2: TTL White Wine Carbonara Noodle – Taiwan

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Taiwanese Instant Noodles Of All Time 2018 Edition

Much to my chagrin, TTL keeps coming out with interesting varieties. TTL stands for Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor – and they always have some kind of alcohol with their products. This one comes with a retort pouch will of creamy sauce and pork which is augmented by a sachet of white wine. A sipping soup is made with a separate sachet. The combination is apt and Very delicious. Original review

#1: Mom’s Dry Noodle Dan Dan Noodle

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Taiwanese Instant Noodles Of All Time 2018 Edition

The noodles came out with a very nice chew. They aren’t mushy whatsoever and have a confident backbone. The flavor is very good as well. The notes of sesame, Sichuan pepper oil, Sichuan pepper in the dry mix, sesame sauce as well as soy sauce all work together and play well with each other; nobody’s feet get stepped on. Simple yet complex. Original review

After a long time, it’s finally happened. I’ve thought for ages that a product with these broad noodles and a soup would be really interesting! Here’s what they have to say about it –

●The width of the noodle is perfect-proportioned. The middle of wavy noodles are thick, while the both sides are thin, that is why the sauce is more easily stuck in the noodle itself, creating different layers of the tastes!
●The only soup noodle of the whole series.
●The product is made in the authentic way of making Sichuan spicy beef flavored soup noodle, so that it gives off an unique fragrance.
●Top Sichuan pepper with watercress, laurel, star anise and fennel make the spicy soup which is rich and refreshing but not pungent at all.

Sounds fascinating – let’s check it out!

I remember when I was at the Taiwan International Food Expo 2017 and seeing the Wu-Mu booth. Two gentlemen were sitting and talking and I came over and introduced myself. They gave me a sample of this product and I haven’t had the chance to review it yet – which works perfect as it’s now being reviewed in a Meet The Manufacturer series./ Here’s what they have to say about this variety:

●Exclusively using the Matsu liquor which the factory has made for more than 60 years. The fragrance of the liquor is charming and rich.
●Utilizing the carefully selected fresh ingredients and traditional Chinese medicine such as angelica, ginger, wolfberry, garlic to mix a seasoning packet of medicinal foods flavor.
●Exceptionally fine ramen, which is made for copying the taste of hand-made vermicelli, in order to create a distinctive flavor.

Indeed, this sounds like a fancy variety and I’m very curious about it, that’s for sure! Let’s open up this package and investigate.
