#3217: Bowlfull Beef Flavour Instant Noodle Soup – Canada

#3217: Bowlfull Beef Flavour Instant Noodle Soup - Canada

Found this at Dollarama, a dollar store up in Canada. A cup of beef. See the little microwave icon on the lower right? We don’t have a microwave currently. Our old one was 20 years old, give or take a year and I though ‘hey – we should get a new one.’ It seemed to be cooking things inconsistently so we went and ordered a new one. It was all screwed up so we returned it last night. Found another one which was really neat! Got it home, lugged it in, opened it up to see this –

Cracked front. So tomorrow we’ll be heading to the store again to return another stupid microwave. Thanks, Best Buy. Anyways I’ll do this one the old fashioned way. Let’s give it a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added scallions, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and beef. Noodles are as spongy as can be – maybe instead of 3 minutes these would be better steeped for 5. Soup is incredibly salty. Sorry, no. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 667888287277.

#3072: Canton Instant Noodles Beef Flavour – Bangladesh

#3072: Canton Instant Noodles Beef Flavour - Bangladesh

Here’s one I found up in Richmond, BC Canada at The Real Canadian SuperStore. They had a ton of interesting stuff in there not only in their ethnic section, but their domestic section. Let’s take a look.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, soft egg, roast beef lunch meat and fried onion. The noodles are pretty good – lots of of them and very soft and light. The flavor ended up vaguely beefy but not extremely beefy. No broth here if you use 250ml water that’s for sure. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 846656017791.

#2310: Pran Mr. Noodles Instant Noodles Beef Flavour

#2310: Pran Mr. Noodles Instant Noodles Beef Flavour - Bangladesh - The Ramen Rater

Here’s one sent to me by Colin – thanks again! So this one is kind of interesting – I’ve reviewed lots of Mr. Noodles in the past, however they’ve been from Canada. I think there’s also a Mr. Noodles in India as well – unsure if they’re related to this Bangladeshi brand though. It seems to me that with so many Mr, Noodles out there (lest we forget Mr. Noodles from Sesame Street as well), there’s bit of confusion. In fact, I get comments quite often actually from the Mr. Noodles customers in Canada asking where to go to contact them. Of course as far as the Canadian ones go, all I can find is a distributor and nothing else. So very sorry, Canadians…

These Mr. Noodles are from Pran, a company that makes all sorts of different things. Hopefully soon there will be a Meet The Manufacturer with Pran so we can check out all their varieties. Now let’s see how Mr. Noodles is when he comes from Bangladesh!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, sweet onion, beef and coriander. The noodles came out rather nice; indeed a light gauge and comfort food chew with an enjoyable floppiness. The broth had a very good beef taste I enjoyed especially – and the oil really bumped it up. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 846656008252.

#1558: No Name Beef Flavour Oriental Noodles And Soup Mix

Here’s one I got from Justin M. from Winfield, BC up north of here in Canada! Thanks! This one’s rather fascinating to me as the brand name is literally ‘no name.’ It’s made in China for Loblaw’s, a Canadian grocery store chain. I’m crossing my fingers here; Canadian instant noodles haven’t really been my favorites – but this is a new one so we’ll have to see. With an open mind, let’s delve into No Name Beef Flavour Oriental Noodles And Soup Mix!

Detail from the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge). To prepare, open lid to dotted line, add in boiling water to inside line, close, wait 3 minutes and stir. Enjoy! But wait – I would add in the sachet contents before the water. No mention of it and I think it’d be rather difficult to chew through the packet.

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has an interesting beef scent and a few pieces of dehydrated vegetables in there.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green onion, sweet onion, beef and a little ВКУСНАЯ СОЛЬ ЙОДИРОВАННАЯ (my sister got this stuff for me – it’s called ‘special iodized salt for the first course’ – I sprinkled a little on the beef). The noodles are kind of odd to be honest. On one hand, I find them to be mushy and funky, but on the other, they’re exactly like the noodles in Mrs. Grass’ soup, but instead of short, they’re long. The broth is pretty decent, with a beef flavor. It’s altogether very strange to me though; the texture of the noodle and the beef broth style of the soup; very different from most instant cups as well as very different from most store brand variants. Unfortunately, the issue with this one was in the vegetables. Everything was fine except the peas which has a very bitter and not enjoyable. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 060383049836.

During the holidays, we watched the Will Ferrell movie ‘Elf’ and he drinks maple syrup at one point. Maple syrup is one of the best things that comes from Canada, and so I thought this Loblaw’s brand President’s Choice 100% Pure Syrup sounded like something to check out.

This is awesome – William Shatner for frozen foods at Loblaw’s! This must be quite old!

#1542: KOKA Noodles Beef Flavour

Here’s the last one sent by Charles, a serviceman in Afghanistan – thanks! It’s really strange to know that since my last KOKA review that I’ve been in Singapore; never did I expect to visit Asia in my lifetime and now I have. Albeit a short visit (out experience of Singapore consisted of running through Changi airport from travelator to travelator and transferring our luggage from carrier to carrier), it was a truly fascinating blur! Anyways, got some fresh beef yesterday and needed to package it up so though I’d do a beef noodle review. Let’s check it out!

Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). I removed the color to make it easier to read. Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge). I removed the color to make it easier to read. To prepare, open lid halfway and remove sachets and fork. Add in sachet contents and add boiling water to fill line. Close and let sit 2-3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Included fork!

The soup base sachet.

Has a beef scent.

The vegetables sachet.

Looks like peas, corn and carrot.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, sweet onion and bell pepper sauteed in Worcestershire and a little Lindberg-Snider Porterhouse & Roast seasoning, mung bean sprout, star anise and sliced spring onion. The noodles are thin and surprisingly bouncy in this one. The broth has a pretty good beef flavor to it, and was about as expected. which has a comfort food character to it. The vegetables are another matter entirely. While the corn and carrot did substantially well, the peas’ refusal to hydrate adequately and remain rather hard was a real deal breaker for me. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars., EAN bar code 8888056705603.

I’ve been asked many times about tomato flavored instant noodles. KOKA Tomato would have to be one of my favorites. First, the noodle are non-fried, so lower in fat. Then there’s the excellent tomato flavor. Worth a try! Get KOKA’s Tomato noodles here.

As most people who read my blog might or might not know, I’m legally blind. I can see, but it’s like there’s a sea of frunk always in my field of vision, which pretty much obliterates my depth perception, ability to drive, figure out where a curb is, etcetera. Well, I found this video of a man who is deaf showing how to cook KOKA noodles. I figured it would be pretty cool – all of us noodle aficionados with disabilities got to stick together!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added bell pepper, sweet onion, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), minced garlic, broccoli and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. the noodles are light and have a kind of strange off taste.

#915: Wai Wai Casserole Beef Flavour Oriental Style Instant Noodle

Here’s something new I found at H Mart. Casserole huh? Beef sounds good. By the way – underneath the sticker on the front it says ‘Beef Flavour.’ Let’s check it out.

Here’s the sticker the distributor puts on.

I really had a time scanning the back of the package. Inverting the colors had the best effect (click to enlarge).

Very thin, crunchy and tasty noodles at this point!

Powder on the left, oil on the right.

An interesting beef and slight sugary taste.

The oil has a strong onion scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added some stir fry veggies, onion, thin sliced rib eye, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake and some green onions. The noodles are neat – thin, sort of crumbly and have a nice flavor. The broth is very light; almost bland. Has a good beef taste to it though. all in all, pretty good – 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8850100002488.

#531: Yum Yum Oriental Style Instant Noodles Beef Flavour

Here’s some more from Michael V.N. of Holland! Thanks again! This one’s called Yum Yum – had my son choose whether I should have the chicken or the beef and he told me I should have the beef today and the chicken tomorrow. Sounds like a plan!

Two packets – flavored oil/paste and powder/veggies. Interesting that they didn’t do it up with three packets.

Lots of paste – nothing mentions spicy but I have a feeling it is. This one came from Holland but it is a product of Thailand.

Click image to enlarge. Boiled an egg with the noodles. So I was right – it is spicy. Not overwhelming but very tasty. The noodles aren’t too shabby and the broth is tasty and somewhat beefy! The veggies are kind of different – crunchy little bits of greenery. I like it – 3.25 out of 5.0 stars!

Kitteh sez Yum Yum Yum as it eats!
