#3336: Nissin Top Ramen Chicken Flavor Bowl – United States

#3336: Nissin Top Ramen Chicken Flavor Bowl - United States

This one came in a special ‘First Taste Club’ box from Nissin Foods USA – pretty snazzy. So, what’s the big deal? Well, it’s Top Ramen, in a bowl. It also comes with vegetables. It also comes with… teriyaki sauce? I’m very curious about this one – let’s cook it up and ruminate on this…

The noodle block.

A dry soup base sachet.

A dry sachet of vegetables.

A wet sachet of teriyaki sauce.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, carrot, sesame seeds, and shichimi togarashi. Noodles worked well and had a nice character to them. The broth smelled very much like homemade chicken broth – until the teriyaky liquid went in. It eradicated all taste of chicken in there. Vegetables were prevalent. I’m not saying it’s bad – in fact it was quite good – just when I see chicken I expect a chicken flavor. 3.5 out of 6.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662026038.

#3301: Yatekomo Fideos Orientales Barbacoa - Spain

I can’t thank my readers enough. When one went on a visit to Europe and kept updating m on varieties he’d found and asked if I wanted to try hem while I was there – that’s really jumbling. Thank you! This is from Spain. Barbecue chicken flavor. Let’s give it a go!

Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat – check for yourself. To prepare, add 150ml water to a pan and bring to a boil. Add noodles and cook until water is absorbed (about 3 minutes). Add sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A dry sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, spring onion, pepper flake, fried garlic, and dried persimmon. The noodles sucked up 150ml of water in about 3 minutes just as they said it would. They have a soft but not mushy character. Flavor is much like barbeque potato chips, although the smokiness is a little more believable and there’s a bit of spiciness in there. All in all, quite nice. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8410300349983.

#3140: Nissin Cup Noodles Soup'D Up Zesty Chicken Flavor - United States

This came by way of Robert over at www.dadbert.com – thanks! I’ve never seen hide nor hare of this variety ever before – anywhere. Test market in Kentucky? Perhaps. It looks like these are a meat version of the Very Veggie really; lots of meat instead of vegetables. My thought – screw it – I mean put lots of meat AND vegetables in there. In fact, screw that – do a retort pooch with meat and vegetables – now you’re talking! Nissin – you’re here in the United States already – use real meat! Retort pouches are the salvation – they shall bring a whole new age to the domestic instant noodle industry in America! At least that’s my vision. Let’s check it out!

#3118: Nongshim POP Pot Or Pan Chicken Flavor – United States

#3118: Nongshim POP Pot Or Pan Chicken Flavor - United States

It’s been so long since I’ve seen a Nongshim product that’s been in an individual pack I’ve not tried it’s making my head spin. I used to get samples from them all the time, but not in quite a while. I miss them! I found this at a Fred Meyer store in Lynnwood, Washington last night! This looks like an interesting new concept for them – make it wet or dry. The name was a little confusing to me at first – I thought it was just called Pop then looked a little closer and thought Pot Por Pan? Ahhh – Pot OR Pan.. That makes more sense. I think I’m going to try pot today. Let’s check it out!

#3107: Samyang Foods Bowl Noodle Soup Chicken Flavor - South Korea

This one might be a bit of a surprise to you – insofar that I haven’t reviewed it, that is. Well, two other brand have these ‘bowl noodle’ style products from South Korea as well. This is Samyang’s entry into the fray of this form factor and style. Don’t get me wrong – one that’s been popular for years is their Yukgaejang bowls which look almost identical – except the name. They recently sent a bunch of these in different flavors – let’s give chicken a try!

Restaurant: #3060: Jinya Ramen Bar – Chicken Wonton Ramen – United States

Restaurant Ramen: #3060: Jinya Ramen Bar - Chicken Wonton Ramen - United States

So it happened. A date night. These are pretty rare for us and a lot of fun! So we decided to give another ramen joint a try. Tonight, it’s Jinya Ramen Bar in Bellevue, Washington.

Jinya Ramen Bar – Chicken Wonton Ramen – United States

15600 NE 8th St. Suite O-11 Bellevue, Washington 98008 * Website

Restaurant Ramen: #3060: Jinya Ramen Bar - Chicken Wonton Ramen - United States

Here’s their menu for this location.

My wife Kit. She kicks ass – she’s always up to try something new!

The table accompaniments. Surprised that there wasn’t any togarashi to sprinkle.

Restaurant Ramen: #3060: Jinya Ramen Bar - Chicken Wonton Ramen - United States

We’ve tried the izakaya (appetizers) at all the ramen restaurants we’ve been to. This is their ‘Jinya Bun” – ‘steamed bun stuffed with slow-braised pork chashu, cucumber, and baby mixed greens served with JINYA’s original bun sauce and kewpie mayonnaise’

Restaurant Ramen: #3060: Jinya Ramen Bar - Chicken Wonton Ramen - United States

Here are their ‘Mini Tacos.’ ‘slow-braised pork chashu and kimchee in a crispy wonton taco shell’

Restaurant Ramen: #3060: Jinya Ramen Bar - Chicken Wonton Ramen - United States

Decided to try takoyaki this time – ‘battered octopus over egg tartar topped with kewpie mayonnaise, okonomiyaki sauce, fresh cut green onion and smoked bonito flakes’

Restaurant Ramen: #3060: Jinya Ramen Bar - Chicken Wonton Ramen - United States

For the main course, Kit opted for a rice bowl – she said it was pretty good.

Restaurant Ramen: #3060: Jinya Ramen Bar - Chicken Wonton Ramen - United States

Here’s what I ordered (click to enlarge), their Chicken Wonton Ramen (wantanmen). Their menu had this to say – ‘chicken broth: wonton, spinach, green onion » served with thin noodles.‘ The noodles were indeed thin. They married to the broth just perfectly. The broth was extremely good – very rich and gave me that same feeling as having noodles that had a runny egg yolk on them – pure bliss. The wonton were extremely good as well with nice texture and innards. Chicken flavor throughout. I can’t explain how absolutely fantastic this was and can say easily at this point that this bowl eclipses all other bowls of ramen I’ve sampled in the area, putting them to shame. A no-brainer 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

This greeted me at the bottom of the bowl and honestly I was sad to see it. It meant that my ramen was indeed gone and my short, tasty life at Jinya Ramen Bar had ended. Perhaps we shall return and try something else next time.
