Meet The Manufacturer: #2860: Wu-Mu Jing Xiang Ban Mian Ramen With BBQ Sauce

Next up is a BBQ flavor noodle – here’s what Wu-Mu has to say about these –

The middle of wavy noodles are thick, while the both sides are thin, that is why the sauce is more easily stuck in the noodle itself, creating different layers of the tastes!
The sauce is made of 100% pure sesame oil, soy sauce and Mirin, simmer until the Cantonese BBQ sauce is cooked. Sweetness and light spiciness blending harmoniously in the mouth, the BBQ sauce is finger-licking.

Finger licking good? I guess we should find out! Let’s go!

#2801: Myojo Ippei-Chan Yomise-No Yakisoba Barbeque Sauce Flavor With Mayonnaise

Hey look at this! This came by way of Hobby Link Japan, a great site that has all sorts of amazing Japanese things including instant noodles! Thank you very much! This variety is a yakisoba with barbeque sauce and mayonnaise! I tell ya, this sounds really quite good to me! Here’s a little about it from Wikipedia –

Yakisoba (焼きそば[jakiꜜsoba]), literally “fried buckwheat,” is a Japanese noodle stir-fry dish. Although soba means buckwheat, yakisoba noodles are actually made from wheat flour, and are typically flavored with a condiment similar to oyster sauce. The dish first appeared in food stalls in Japan during the early 20th century.[1]

Yakisoba is most familiarly served on a plate either as a main dish or a side dish. Another popular way to prepare and serve yakisoba in Japan is to pile the noodles into a bun sliced down the middle in the style of a hot dog, and garnish the top with mayonnaise and shreds of pickled ginger. Called yakisoba-pan (pan meaning bread) it is commonly available at local festivals or konbini (convenience stores).

Sometimes, Japanese white Udon is used as a replacement of Chinese style Soba and called Yakiudon. This variation was started in Kitakyushu or Kokura in Fukuoka Prefecture.

In Okinawa, Yakisoba is popular with Okinawans and U.S. service members stationed on the island alike. After the 1945 hostilities ended on Okinawa, the US military command supplied American food products to the malnourished residents. The preferred Okinawan version was prepared from spaghetti, spam, ketchup, any available vegetable (usually canned), and mayonnaise for frying. Mess halls and other on-base eateries often serve yakisoba. Chopped hotdogs are a popular addition to yakisoba made on Okinawa, in addition to other meats such as ham, chicken, and pork.

Alright – I’m excited to give this one a try – let’s go!

Here’s another interesting one from Zenpop.JP – thanks! So Zenpop is doing monthly boxes of all sorts of things Japan-related including instant ramen of course.  This is a big tray from Sapporo Ichiban – here’s what the folks at Zenpop have to say about this one –

‘Yakisoba is a popular noodle dish in Japan. When the savory noodles mingle together with the tantalizing flavor of BBQ, the result is an umami paradise. The flavor of beef is zested up with sesame, garlic, lemon and black pepper.’

Finally, here’s a little from Wikipedia about yakisoba –

Yakisoba (焼きそば[jakiꜜsoba]), literally “fried buckwheat,” is a Japanese noodle stir-fry dish. Although soba means buckwheat, yakisoba noodles are actually made from wheat flour, and are typically flavored with a condiment similar to oyster sauce.

Here’s another one of the noodle snack varieties – today it’s a barbeque flavored one. These are pretty neat – you get a long strip of these little packages. Let have a look at this and give the barbeque flavor a try!

I’m really excited about this series – and the fact that I’m getting some help from a local business. Jonathan over at Waroeng Jajanan. The store and restaurant combo is just an amazing place to check out authentic Indonesian cuisine, and you’ll be seeing a lot of (pretty much all) that I add in the end being from there in this series. Alright – let’s check out this one from Mikka as part of Meet The Manufacturer!

Meet The Manufacturer: #1842: Forest Noodles Purple Sweet Potato Noodle With Taiwanese Sauce

I think one of my favorite things are noodles that have something differe – like these. Purple noodles are pretty fascinating – first off, they’re purple. I remember hearing about ‘Space Potatoes’ a while back – somehow crossing the stuff that makes eggplants purple with a potato. I think blue potatoes would be kind of neat, but how would they taste? Well, let’s see how these noodles taste!

The back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add a little salt to a pot of boiling water. Add in noodle block and cook 5.5-6.5 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

Purple noodles!

The sauce sachet.

Has a sweet scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added beef and coriander. The noodles had a very nice chew to them- excellent quality. The sauce coats everything nicely and has a great Taiwanese satay taste to it. Very ‘stick to your ribs’ kind of stuff – nice and hearty. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Re-Review: Indomie Mi Goreng Rasa Ayam Panggang Jumbo Barbecue Chicken Flavour Fried Instant Noodles

So I got a message this morning from a gentleman in Denmark who thought that Indomie’s special fried curly noodles were some of the best stuff he’s ever had. I must agree! Coincidentally, I found a pack of this stuff sitting in the cupboard and thought that the barbecue chicken flavor really could use a re-review. So come on and follow me on a journey into the world of tasty noodles!

Okay – from left to right: powder, veggies, seasoned oil, chili sauce (manis pedas) and sweet soy sauce (kecap manis).

Here’s everything but the veggies sitting in a bowl.

Here are the veggies sitting atop the block awaiting a bath in boiling water.

Click image to enlarge. Added one jumbo fried egg with a soft yolk, some pink pickled ginger (kizami shoga) and some fried shallots. This is absolutely divine. I love giving this stuff 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. It just works so well and tastes so good. I recommend it to everyone everywhere –  especially with the egg! I found a place online to get it but it’s the non-jumbo size packs. They’re here.

Just to remind, I’m giving this 5.0 out of 5.0 – this is one of the best all time noodles I’ve ever tasted. Get it here.
