#1611: Lucky Me! Supreme Seafood Flavor Big Cup

Lucky Me! is a line by Filipino brand Monde Nissin. I thought today sounded like a good seafood day! Let’s see what we have here!

The distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge).

 A very colorful detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add in sachet contents and boiling water to fill line. Cover and let steep 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge).

An included fork!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

A seafood scented powder.

The solid ingredients sachet.

Corn and other bits.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added corn, carved squid, fish ball, sweet onion, shrimp and spring onion. The noodles have a light gauge and chew – there’s a decent amount of them, and they don’t exhibit any mushiness or sponginess. The broth is very luxuriant – kind of a milky and creamy seafood affair. Definitely a comfort food feel to it. The vegetables hydrated pretty well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4807770272936.

They also have a Pinoy Chicken variety.

#1152: Sapporo Ichiban Tomato & Basil Shio Ramen

Check this big sucker out! This one was sent by a guy who runs a store in Japan called Yanaktei (www.yakantei.com). Kind of looks pizza minded eh? Let’s check it out!

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains egg, pork and chicken.

Here’s the noodle block – note that there’s a lot of seasoning interspersed.

A ton of bits and pieces in this one!

A small liquid packet.

Looks to be like a tomato oil – has a very strong fresh tomato scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Sauteed some pork butt with a sprinkle of garlic salt for a few and then added Walla Walla sweet onion, green onion and bell pepper. Garnished with grape tomatoes. The noodles aren’t amazing; but they’re not bad either. They have a standard noodle cup texture. The broth is very nice – the tomato packet really punches home the tomato flavor – and it’s a real taste, but a ketchup smack. The bits and pieces are very nice too – scrambled egg, veggies and some meat round out nicely. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 4901734019503.

#1010: Golden Wheat Korean Style Spicy Beef Noodle Soup

Here’s yet another from my birthday trip to Canada! A big cup of Chinese noodles – let’s check it out!

Side panel details (click image to enlarge)

An included fork! Woot!

Large noodle block.

Powder seasoning packet.

Has a spicy and sweet flavor.

Paste component.

Has a nice beef scent.


Interesting little assortment.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green bell pepper, sweet onion and rib eye steak. The noodles are plentiful and of decent quality. The broth is very spicy – take the name seriously! It has a great depth of flavor and heartiness. Oily. Definitely has a nicely authentic Chinese flavor, which is funny how it’s ‘Korean Style.’ Regardless, I like it. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 6921555571569.

Here’s a machine that packages instant noodles.

#798: Golden Wheat Korean Style Pork Flavour Noodle Soup

Here’s a big cup my sister brought me back from Canada this year. Sounds good on a nice sunny day.

Here’s the side panels – click to enlarge.

The noodle block.

The seasoning powder.

Plenty of it.


Liquid base.

Looks like an oyster – kinda…

The veggies!

Looks like a nice little smorgasbord…

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added onions and a couple dashes of Texas Pete Hot Sauce. The broth was rather greasy and a little lighter of a flavor than I’d expected. The noodles were just plain boring; they didn’t really soak up any flavor. The veggies were okay. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 6921555586235 .

Korean pork belly – there’s really nothing like it!
