#2562: Binh Tay Mi Hai Cua Artificial Crab Flavored Instant Noodles - Vietnam - The Ramen Rater - Vietnamese

These came by way of Kimmy N. of Connecticut, USA! Thanks again! It’s rare these days that a new Vietnamese variety crosses my desk – always welcome of course! I know there’s quite a few that I’m not getting which bums me out. Definitely would love to try more of them. I’ve tried a ton of them in the past, but going forward I’d like to do a lot more of these reviews.

Crab is something I’ve liked for a while, although there’s a specific part of the crab I haven’t quite understood yet. While in Malaysia, our hosts took us to a floating seafood restaurant. Fresh steamed crab, mallets, the whole 9 yards.

I was advised to try the crab roe – the crab eggs that can be scooped out of the shell in a particular area. How could I say no; I’m all about trying new things. This was the taste of the sea; deep, strong and just not at all to my liking. I asked people about whether they’d tried it before. Asian people I asked said ‘oh yeah – Asians love this taste.’

I feel that I need to try more of this and understand why. I love Spaghettios, pizza and cheeseburgers and have tried to shed the cursed Western palate and have had a great time trying to do this, but a couple tastes really have eluded me – crab roe and sea urchin. Time will tell. Let’s give this one sent by a reader a try!

A seasoned oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added crab stick, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, fried onion and chilli flake. I really liked this one. The noodle hydrate well in the 3 minutes of time ad have a soft tooth and a nice gauge. There’s a decent amount of them as well. The broth has a nice buttery sweet crabby kind of deal to it. I found that the oil sachet had just enough to give the broth a good body – but not overly oily. I see why my readers like this one! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8934566000674.

#91: Binh Tay Mi Chay Mushroom

Okay, let me explain.I have been going through every review meticulously for the last few days and you will see why in my next post, but I notice that review #91 was skipped for some reason. So, this will be it. Not a big mushroom fan but hey, the vegetable one this company made was alright so let’s give this one a try.

The back of the packaging (click to enlarge)

The noodle block. Tight and thin little noodles.

Not sure, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a clear packet with both vegetables and powder, or a clear packet containing seasoning powder before.

Here are the seasonings and veggie bits atop.

Some seasoned oil.

Finished (click image to enlarge) Added bell pepper, broccoli, onion, Krazy Mixed Up Salt and Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. Noodles are thin and interesting – very plentiful and easily broken with the lips. Enjoyable. The Broth was very earthy and had a strong mushroom flavor. If you like mushrooms, this is definitely something you will like. The mushroom bits are also very earthy and mushroomy. Mushrooms have a flavor that remind me of an old attic window, peering out at a dark and cloudy day in February. That being said, I rate these at 2.75 out of 5.0 stars; just don’t like mushrooms.UPC bar code 8934566000018

#836: Binh Tay Mi Chay Vegetarian Instant Noodles

This is different – usually you don’t see a clear window in on the noodle block inside! Let’s have a try with this one.

Back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

A dense noodle block.

Powder seasoning.

Has a sweet and onionny taste.

Seasoned oil.

Has a nice scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a little Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles are light and quite plentiful. Kind of remind me of the kind you would find in a cup noodle except of higher quality. The broth is pretty good! Has a nice onion and other vegetables taste to it. Decent stuff! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8934566000025 .
