I’ve always found that sesame seeds get stuck in my teeth. Yeah, they do. However, I still like them. I think I like pretty much anything sesame – especially sesame oil. I also like spicy things. Sounds like a slam dunk here but I suppose we will have to see.

This is one of the Delight varieties. No palm oil, no added MSG and the noodles are baked, not fried. What’s interesting too – usually baked or air dried noodles are not ones you can take out of the package a try straight. Indeed, they’re usually quite hard and would possibly bust your teeth! These however are not that way. You can try them and chew them up raw. Also, they’re significantly lighter in weight than a fried noodle block. Let’s check out this Spicy Sesame variety!

Cabbage, chilli flakes and coriander.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, shredded chicken and sesame seeds. The noodles in this are great – plump and robust. Indeed, they have a slightly stronger backbone than your average instant, but not so much chewier it’s unwelcome. The broth is excellent – a very detectable sesame oil taste with a good punch of heat. The included garnish worked well. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8888056000241.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles hydrated well and were of the good standard quality of Japanese Cup Noodle – flat, soft, lots of noodles. The broth was a rich creamy one with a beef kind of taste to it. As for the garlic taste, I found it kind of absent and the egg yolk must have been part of the thickener for the broth. The garnish bits were nice – Jew’s ear mushroom, bell pepper and bits of meat were abundant. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105236390.
