A light powder base.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg and spring onion. Noodles are of a standard gauge and soaked up almost all the 300ml water used. Flavor is of tomato, however the spicy part is lost on me. Nothing spicy about this which is a shame as I think that would have made this one much better. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 846656017807.

I think this is the last of the Canton varieties I found at the Real Canadian Superstore up in Canada a few months back. That’s a neat place – in Richmond, BC – they’ve got all sorts of neat things there! Haven’t been to Canada in a little while. Need to visit again! Let’s check this one out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, sesame seeds, coriander, and fried tofu puff. The noodles were about what you’d expect in an instant with a slight fluffier texture. The flavor – and it just kills me – movie theater butter flavored microwave popcorn. I’m serious. It’s not bad actually and I found it enjoyable, but that’s definitely what I get out of this one. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 846656017784.

#2962: Canton Instant Noodles Chicken Curry Flavour

#2962: Canton Instant Noodles Chicken Curry Flavour

Okay – guess where I got these? Yeah – Canada. At the Real Canadian Superstore. These are made in Bangladesh. So, are they a Bangladesh product, or something geared this way for Canada. This is always a tricky thing for me to figure out and ultimately, I have to just pick. The pack mentions that it’s a product of Bangladesh and has many languages, however the Nutrition Facts are designed for Canada – in English and French. So I’m going to go with this is an export product and labeled just for Canada, but it’s not made in Canada. One thing also to note is the absence of Canadian mentions – made by so-and-so for insert Canadian company here. Usually, this would make it Bangladesh, but then there’s the bar code – it’s a 12 instead of 13 digits. Leaning Canadian again. But then if you look at the commercial at the bottom, this package is in English instead of the local language. I’m slapping a Bangladesh label on it. Let’s check it out.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, chicken, hard boiled egg, fried onion, and grape tomatoes. The noodles sucked up all the broth and ended up with a decent texture to them – just about right. The taste was more chicken and less curry, but it was pretty tasty. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 841165107650.

Okay, so I really had no idea that these were romance instant noodles…

Re-Review: Payless Xtra Big Pancit Canton Original

Oh man I thought this was a new one! I reviewed this at #93! Here’s something from the Philippines! Been awhile since a review from there. Pancit Canton reminds me a lot of Indonesia’s Mi Goreng; the noodles are drained and then stirred with the dry and wet ingredients and served. Let’s try this one out!

The back of the package (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block – big for Pancit Canton instant, but then again this is XTRA BIG!

Powder seasoning.

Lots of it.

Soy sauce and oil.

I like how the soy and oil’s syrface tensions make things look.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some veggies, a couple scrambled eggs with Cavender’s Greek Seasoning, some roast beef and some Dua Belibis chili sauce. This stuff is excellent! The noodles are chewy and the flavoring coasts nice and has a sweet and salty taste. Not really spicy as Mi Goreng usually is. If you want to like Mi Goreng but can’t handle the heat, this would be an excellent alternative! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars – still amazingly good since review #93! UPC bar code 4800016555992 .

#599: Lucky Me! Pancit Canton (Chow Mein) Extra Hot Chili Flavor

Pancit Canton! Ahhh this stuff is so good! It’s a lot like Mi Goreng but a little sweeter. Anyways, Let’s give their extra hot chili flavor a try!

Click image to enlarge. Here’s the back panel of the packaging. Note that Lucky Me! is a subsidiary of Nissin.

On the left we have a double packet of seasoned oil and a liquid sauce of some type.

Here are the noodles before the boil. This is a very small block – the package is only 2.12 ounces – on the small side.

The oil, powder and liquid come together like an artist’s palette of earthy tones.

Click image to enlarge. Finished. Runny yolk fried eggs on top with a little Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning, black pepper and fried shallot garnish. So there was some heat here – not too strong as it was offset by a little sweetness. The noodles were good – slightly chewy and a little sticky. A good quick snack unless you add the eggs to bring it up to meal mode. Very good! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars! They have the hot chili and lime one here.

Pretty good commercial.

Open wide, America! Signs of things to come..

#430: Quickchow Pancit Canton Toyo-Mansi

Toyo Mansi huh? Well, I’m pretty sure that mansi is lime, but toyo? Well, Wikipedia had the answer:

Toyo’t Kalamansi (sometimes referred to simply as toyomansi) – soy sauce with kalamansi lime juice

Even better, I found it on this page of Philippine condiments! Pretty cool!

Dry powder, soy sauce and seasoned oil. I imagine the soy sauce has the lime infused in it.

There they wait the drained cooked noodles.

Click image to enlarge. I added a little Kizami Shoga (pickled ginger) and a little fried shallot for garnish. Well I must say this is stupendous and wonderful stuff and I could eat it every day. Very much like Indomie’s Mi Goreng line. I like the noodles and the flavor and everything. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – delicious!

#366: Payless Pancit Shanghai Oriental Style

 

So here’s something new from Payless – Paincit Shanghai. I’ve had numerous Pancit Canton varieties in the past. Somebody once commented I should try the Shanghai and alluded to it being hot and spicy. We shall see!

So two packets – a funky paste weirdness on the left and the veggies on the right.

Kind of interesting that we have no powdered seasoning with this one like the Payless Xtra Big ones… Hmmm. By the way this is a drain the water off one.

Click image to enlarge. Added two fried eggs. So not too bad but not great. I mean the noodles rocked; I really liked the broad noodles. The seasoning wasn’t  all that impressive though. So basically, I liked it, but I wish there was more and I wish it blew my mind a bit more too. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars.

#357: Payless Xtra Big Kalamansi Pancit Canton

So I have found that I really like this pancit canton – the Payless Xtra Big chilimansi and regular are awesome – so let’s see if the lime one is rockin’!

So a powder packets and some soy sauce and flavored oil…

Here they are in the bowl waiting for the drained noodles.

Click image to enlarge. Added two hard boiled eggs, a little pickled ginger and a pinch of fried shallots. During my first bite I realized the shells hadn’t all been removed from the eggs – the hard way! So I opted to just remove the eggs. So this was some really enjoyable and tasty stuff. I would be happy to eat this every day! Much like Mi Goreng Satay my Indomie. I loved it. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

This is a game played with a kalamansi – the lime on the ground. However I do not know what you call the mallet…

The Banana Splits Show – I remember this when I was a kid…

#339: Payless Xtra Big Chilimansi Pancit Canton

So I’ve been waiting for a good time to try this stuff and today seemed the right time. My 5 year old stuck his headf in the ramen box and picked it out for me. I have so many and its so hard to pick that I often ask family to pick the one I’m going to have – and usually after they pick once or twice I agree to the one the pick the third time.

So the last one I had by Payless was their ‘original’ flavor pancit canton.  Pancit means noodles in the Philippines – they were introduced by the Chinese way way back. I am pretty sure that’s why they’re pancit canton – Canton is a province of China – Cantonese etc… I have a packet which I have been challenged to try but yet to called Pancit Shanghai. There are others like pancit palabok and bihon, but so far I really really like the pancit canton.

Then there’s the chilimansi aspect. Basically it means hot pepper and lime flavor. Now, on with the review!

Three packets of power! The first is a seasoned oil, then a dark soy sauce I think, then a packet with dry powder within.

Ah that looks quite nice! This stuff is prepared identically to a couple of my favorites – Indomie’s Mi Goreng varieties and Special versions. Cook the noodles, drain and stir in a bowl that you’ve put all the flavorings in. If you make this with some broth, it will taste really wrong – strange how water would do that, but trust me – you don’t want to skip the drainage step.

Click here to enlarge. I added two fried eggs, some Kizami Shoga [pickled ginger], fried shallots and a little sriracha sauce. The noodles were awesome and very tasty! A bit of chili flavor, a bit citrus. Kind of sweet and salty too. Everything played off of eachother and it was like listening to some groovy funky music but it was going from the bowl into my facehole, getting chewed and into the great oblivious beyond that is my digestive system. Good good stuff – stuff of poetry and philosophy. 4.5 out of 5/.0 stars. Get some and eat it!

Tagalog’s an interesting language – how it goes from something that sounds so foreign and then bam – english! Pretty cool.

Here’s some of the kind of stuff I’ve been diggin on lately. Lots of 60’s/70’s synthesizer music too – in fact my collection is just too big.

#155: Lucky Me! Instant Pancit Canton Chow Mein

I’ve really enjoyed the chow mein that Sapporo Ichiban put out for years – curious to see how this stacks up…

Oil, sauce and powder.

Awaiting some drained noodles and a stir…

Click image to enlarge. Wow – this stuff is awesome! I wouldn’t call it chow mein per se… It reminds me slightly of Mi Goreng in a way. If you’re looking for a small amount of noodles (the pack is only 65g), this is your best bet. Also, it’d be the perfect match for some fried egg on top! I’m giving this 4.75 out of 5.0 stars – absolutely delightful. Get it here.
