Wai Wai: Tom Yum Chili Flavor
Notes: Some pretty damn hot noodles! On the back they have put this style’s motto: ‘Softer Noodles,
Quicker To Be Served.’ It was true, these cooked up quickly, but they were insidiously hot, and
this annoyed me.
Westbrae: Miso Ramen
Notes: This stuff ranks very low on my chart of good ramen. It’s marketed obviously to the
‘health conscious’ ramenphile, however, it’s $3.00 a pack price and paltry, weak wheat
noodles lacked character, as did it’s bland tasteless broth. I was very, very, very
So first a bit about one of my favorites and one of my nemeses. First, Indomie Jumbo BBQ Chicken instant noodles. This stuff is a perfect example of well thought out noodles, in that they have a few packets in there for more preparation fun, and there’s a lot of noodles. These are of the five star ilk, but I have but one complaint about them: unless you eat them quickly, after you cook ’em, they dry out and get frumpy and obstinate on the fork.
Over 7 years have passed since the inception of ramenrater.com. For much of the past few years though, I haven’t really done much with it due to other interests. I’m happy to say I’ve decided to spend more time with ramenrater.com again and update it. Above, you can see the A-M and N-Z links – they do as the old site did. Reviews will be done in blog format from here on out, and henceforward will be searchable by brand and flavor, etcetera.
