The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Indonesian Instant Noodles Of All Time 2021 Edition

Ten Indonesian Instant Noodles

To start, I want to take a moment to recognize the passing of Nunuk Nuraini. Many of you haven’t heard of her and so I wanted to tell you a little about her. She was the spice mixer for Indomie and died earlier this year. The flavors she shared with the world are legendary I thought it fitting to honor her with a mention before we start this list. If you’d like to read and article about her life, there is one here ...see full post

#3742: PLN Food Co. Ltd. Sesame Paste Noodle - Taiwan

What a week – just so busy lately! My daughter just started preschool and so another part of the day is taken up by Zoom meetings – not a bad thing and really neat to see her start school! Yet it is a difficult transition for me; I’ve had everything so timed and set up for reviewing that change is difficult – but not impossible. Adjusting had been hard but it’s going well. ...see full post

#3738: O'Taste Habanero Tteokbokki With Noodles - South Korea

Oh boy, oh boy… I did a big sort of all the noodles I had in my hampers and one thing I found was a huge amount were expired – not just a little, but like expires in 2018 (it’s 2020). Now that my noodle hoard has dwindles (I think I tossed a good 50 packs/cups/bowls), I saw someone else touting this one as a new add to their stash. Well lo and behold, this one made the cut – it expires next week, so I’d better get on it. Not only that, this sounds like a mukbang if I’ve ever heard of one. Let’s do it. ...see full post

A happy Valentine’s Day to you all! It’s been crazy here – we’ve been dumped on with a ton of snow in the last couple of days. It’s melting though and hopefully it will be all gone soon. It’s been a rough month – the site got hacked, so I started a GoFundMe campaign – which proved that humanity is kind and I have the best viewership/readership in the world – thank you for your kind donations! The site is happy, and a couple items on the wish list were also got – a couple camera for Instant Noodle Recipe Time were donated, and I was able to get a scanner that measure 11×17 (the one I have has condensation on the inside and the new one should be here tomorrow). Then, this morning I come out to the living room to find my data drive where I keep the bulk of my day-to-day assets like templates etc. was hosed. Wouldn’t spin up. Luckily, there were finds left over from the GoFundMe that covered a new hard drive. I though – hey maybe the old one might still be under warranty and fished it out of the trash bin. No dice on that, but gave it one last try and it fired up! It’s backing up data right this second and should be done shortly! The safe bet is to stay with the new one that is coming since who knows how long this one will work. Anyways, I hope every one is having a great Valentine’s Day – it’s been a rollercoaster over here! ...see full post
