Here’s another one sent by Casey P. from Hong Kong – thanks! I’ve always thought this one looked interesting – the guy tooting his horn, the little cat. I tried this years ago – new package, new review though. Let’s check it out.
The back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether meat free or not – probably contains fish products. to prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in large seasoning sachet. Add in your garnish and sprinkle smaller sachet on. Enjoy!
The Noodle block.
A dual sachet.
A soup base powder.
Smells like pepper!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork, spring onion, hard boiled egg, kiazmi shoga and sesame seeds. The noodles have a slightly thicker gauge than most Japanese instants – not quite South Korea’s ramyun, but thicker than the norm. Nice chew and mouthfeel to it as well. The broth is a very comfortable shoyu – slightly thin but with a good natured yumminess. The pepper adds a nice little bit of goodness as well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902881000017.
This is one of those that I’ve only found in 5 packs and had to go ahead and get it. Been so curious about this one and I mean the packaging is probably one of the coolest I’ve seen yet. I wish this guy would come to my town and toot on his trumpet – I’d gladly buy a bowl of noodles from him! I think I can say happily, “screw the ice cream man – this guy’s way cooler.”
So the guy with the cart and the pet cat brought two packets to the party as you can see…
I’m not sure what’s up on this one – whether it is soup base and shoyu flavor or what.
Click image to enlarge. Boiled a couple eggs with the noodles. It seemed a good idea. So I liked these noodles. They were firm enough and tasty. The broth had a nice shoyu flavor. If I were to give these noodles a single word to describe them it’d be ‘traditional.’ 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.
