#1220: Nissin Ultraman Instant Noodle Pork Flavor

This was sent by Abbie C. of Hong Kong – thank you! She offered to find a Pokemon cup for my son but couldn’t find one, so this is an Ultraman cup! Awesome! It’s really small – smallest sized noodle cup I’ve tried yet! Let’s check it out!

The lid (click to enlarge). The cup is designed to look like the front is Ultraman’s body and his head is on top – flying!

The import sticker (click image to enlarge). Never seen a nutrition facts exemption before – interesting! Contains pork. You add 170ml water, let it sit 90 seconds and you’ve got yourself Ultraman noodles!

A seasoned noodle block.

Some of the powder seasoning.

I see instant noodle commercials in his future – what do you think?

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some thinly sliced kamaboko. The noodles are very thin. They didn’t do all that great after 90 seconds, so gave em a stir and 45 more. They were a little better, but not great. The broth on the other hand was a nice milky pork broth with rich flavor. Andy gave em 5.0, me, I’m giving them 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4902105217153.

Here’s an Ultraman episode for your viewing enjoyment!

Seasoning on left and veggie block on right.

Knife cut noodles! Aaaah! I dig the little veggie blocks!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Well, I’ve got to hand it to em’ – the knife cut noodles are amazingly good. I think it’s the 90% rice in them. Awesome! A little bit of spicy in the broth and the veggies are great. Very nice – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 087703160781 .

Ahh okay I get it.

Knife cut Kalguksu.

#298: Nongshim Hearty Rice Noodle Soup Spicy Veggie Consommé

So here’s something a little different! Healthy and consomme usually aren’t words I see one packages of instant noodles!

Look at that! Clockwise from top – soup base, sea tangle and vegetables. Sea tangle! It add that wonderful ‘of the sea’ taste!

So inside the package is a tray with the noodles. There are the packet contents and sea tangle on top. Note the nice looking veggies!

Yeah – definitely something I’ve not seen before. Oh wait; isn’t this like macaroni but rice and thinner?

Click image to enlarge. Here’s the finished product. So the noodles are very chewy. I don’t like them much at all. Broth is nice and has some depth to it. Sea tangle is great as are the veggies. Altogether, I can’t get behind it because the noodles just don’t do it for me. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. Unique and different yes, but not my kinda thing. Surprised to be able to find at least the beef version here.
