#3022: Myojo Japanese Yakisoba Curry Flavor – United States

#3022: Myojo Japanese Yakisoba Curry Flavor - United States

I was in Bellevue the other day and hit Uwajimaya for a couple things. I thought hey – I’ll make yakisoba for dinner! I just got a big huge frying wok and so that should be fun. So I go to the aisle with the cold cases and find the yakisoba. The one I usually pick up was frozen hard as a rock – not cool. I looked for another and most of those were brick-hard. Then I found this one and was happy. Well, I get it home and I’m pissed. It’s curry. Now, everyone knows I love curry; it’s almost a religious thing for me. But not everyone in my place likes curry for dinner. So that was that – no yakisoba for dinner. It’s my fault for not noticing it was curry, but then again I wish the one I wanted wasn’t akin to a cinder block in its solidness. But personally, I know this should be pretty good stuff – let’s give it a try!

Certainly smells like curry.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork, tofu puff, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, egg and Kewpie mayonnaise. Man… Okay so the noodles are slightly thinner than most of the yakisoba I’ve had. Just a perfect tooth and great quantity. The flavor. This is heaven where Japanese curry is concerned. Sweet, salty and CURRY! Probably the best curry thing I’ve had in a Japanese variety thus far – and it’s made in the United States. Get it. Eat it. Marry it. 5,.0 out of 5.0 stars.

The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Philippines Instant Noodles Of All Time 2018 Edition

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Philippines Instant Noodles Of All Time 2018 Edition

As I mentioned at the begginning of the Top Ten Japanese list, I have added a little chat option to the site. If I’m available, I can turn it on on my phone and people can ask me questions or comment while they browse the website. Thus far, the most questions and comments are from the Philippines. I thought hey – why isn’t there a top ten Philippines list? I haven’t reviewed many from the Philippines lately and I kind of hope companies in the Philippines that make instant noodles might be interested in having me review their products – if so, please contact me. I would love to do an annual list for the Philippines, however without more reviews, there’s not a whole lot of reason to do so. So let’s have a look! These are my favorite Filipino varieties from the over 2,500 reviews I’ve posted to date.

#10: Lucky Me! Supreme Seafood Flavor Big Cup

#10: Lucky Me! Supreme Seafood Flavor Big Cup

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. Original review

#9: Lucky Me! Beef Na Beef Instant Noodles

#9: Lucky Me! Beef Na Beef Instant Noodles

The noodles have a nice gauge and good texture to them – nice quantity too. The broth has a very beefy flavor – not one brought about like bouillon does but more like stewed beef. The garnish worked just right. If you like beef, you’ll really love this. Original review

#8: Lucky Me! Special Instant Curly Spaghetti With Yummy Red Sauce

#8: Lucky Me! Special Instant Curly Spaghetti With Yummy Red Sauce

The noodles are definitely large gauge – larger than ramyun even. They also have an excellent chewiness to them. The flavor is a sweet tomato sauce which coats everything quite well. Original review

#7: Lucky Me! Pancit Canton (Chow Mein) Original Flavor

#7: Lucky Me! Pancit Canton (Chow Mein) Original Flavor

The noodles have a great gauge and chew. The flavor is like a salty and garlic kind of thing which is really quite enjoyable. The dry component seems to give it an almost chicken kind of sense whereas the oil and sauce lend to it an oiliness and more garlic flavor which round things out. As I’ve said before, this is much like mee goreng and is very good! Original review

#6: Lucky Me! Pancit Canton (Chow Mein) Sweet & Spicy Flavor

#6: Lucky Me! Pancit Canton (Chow Mein) Sweet & Spicy Flavor

The noodles have a nice standard gauge with a light spring. The chew is right for this application. The flavor is like a nice sweet and spicy with butter and salt kind of thing. Original review

#5: Lucky Me! Special Instant Noodles Jjamppong Flavor

#5: Lucky Me! Special Instant Noodles Jjamppong Flavor

The noodles are thin and have a nice lightness to them – much like one would find in a cup noodle but a little different. The broth has a very good spiciness and seafood flavor which I would expect in a jjamppong instant and works well. The solid ingredients hydrated well and were of excellent quality. Original review

#4: Lucky Me! Special Baked Mac Style Instant Macaroni

#4: Lucky Me! Special Baked Mac Style Instant Macaroni

The noodles have a nice shape and chew to them. The sauce is very good – it has a sweetness and tomato flavor and is frequently augmented with bits of textured vegetable protein which are just like little bits of real hamburger. This was a very pleasant surprise. Original review

 

#3: Quickchow Pancit Canton Toyo-Mansi

#3: Quickchow Pancit Canton Toyo-Mansi

Well I must say this is stupendous and wonderful stuff and I could eat it every day.  I like the noodles and the flavor has a kind of spicy and citrus flavor. Original review

#2: Payless Xtra Big Chilimansi Pancit Canton

#2: Payless Xtra Big Chilimansi Pancit Canton

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. Original review

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

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

The noodles as always in their pancit canton are just right – good gauge and chew. They are complimented this time with a nice coating of salty and spicy flavors that were really good – and the spiciness was definitely more than adequate. Original review

Si#2308: Fantastic Noodles Chicken Chow Mein Flavour - Australia - Instant Noodles - The Ramen Rater

Here’s one sent by a reader named Jen from Australia – thanks again! So chow mein – very curious how this will translate. Indeed I’ve had chow mein that tastes like yakisoba, chow mein that’s just salty and soy, chow mein that’s very bland. But this one looks like it will be chow mein with a small amount of broth and vegetables which sounds odd. But wait – is it odd? As a matter of fact. Australia has it’s own take on Chinese food – here’s a little about it from wikipedia:

Traditional chow mein is made with egg noodles which are boiled then strained and left to dry.[citation needed] They are then stir fried and finally left to sit at the bottom of the wok and pressed down, this crisps the noodles at the edges and underside. Chow mein is made with either seafood, often just prawns, chicken, beef or barbecued pork. Restaurants will serve a combination chow mein or a single type. Chicken and beef are often softened with a little bicarb of soda. The sauce is made from garlic, rice wine, light stock, MSG, salt and corn flour. Vegetables are usually one green such as bok choy or choy sum plus a little chopped carrot, but also other green vegetables are acceptable. This stir fry is poured onto the noodles. Chow mein is unique as its noodles are both soft in part but also crispy.

Well, let’s find out what this chicken chow mein is all about.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and baked chicken. The noodles are standard gauge and hydrate nicely in three minutes, but nothing super special. As far as the broth, the noodles suck most of it up. The flavor was pretty good; indeed, it didn’t remind me of chow mein really but tasted nice and chickenny. Veggie hydrated alright – the peas were kind of meh. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310155002141.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles just didn’t cook right in this one and what kind of surprised me was that I used the exact same microwave settings as the last one of these I cooked. Really bummed. I do know that if these were cooked in a pot normally, they’d be 5 stars. The flavor is great – nice soy sauce and spiciness augmented by a great selection of veggies. Really unfortunate. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4715635852950.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles came out extremely well – beautiful gauge and texture. Again, these are the noodles that when I first tried them cooked I considered to be ‘masterful in their simplicity,’ using very few ingredients and delivering a fine chew and mouthfeel. They don’t disappoint here whatsoever. As for the flavoring, it’s a salty soy which coats everything well. The vegetables are a very nice addition to this product. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4715635852943.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles came out a little on the al dente side but were still quite good. the issue I had with this was the profoundly salty nature of the flavoring. It was just too much and just didn’t work right here; kind of like the sauce was at adds with the noodle. The vegetables did well. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4715635852936.

#1910: Nissin Chow Mein Premium Savory Sauce And Restaurant Quality Noodles Pad Thai Flavor

Today I’m reviewing something new that the folks at Nissin Foods USA sent recently. Pad Thai is a popular dish people get at Thai restaurants – pretty accessible for people in the United States since it’s usually not super spicy and is kind of like an Asian alfedo. Well, technically, it’s nothing like that but I think you know what I mean – it’s something that people aren’t extremely scared of, and a lot of the time, the first time Thai food taster will try it, like it, and decide they like Thai food but only order it when they go out for Thai food. Sad but true, especially when there are so many amazing flavors of Thai food out there. But it’s kind of like Chinese food – it’s Americanized so they get repeat customers. Americanized Thai food is very tasty though – I will definitely say I enjoy it. Let’s give this Pad Thai a try!

Here’s the info from the bottom of the outer wraps (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, open lid halfway and add in room temp water to fill line. Microwave for 5 minutes, then let sit for an additional minute. Remove lid and add in powder and liquid sachet contents. Stir well and enjoy!

Some unidentified small bits from under the noodle block in the tray.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander and barbecued pork. The noodles are flat and came out good in the microwave. There is a large quantity of them as well. The oil and seasoning were ass and I stirred it all up. The flavor was a spicy hit at first, and a kind of sweetness as well. To be honest, this didn’t really strike me as pad thai that I’ve ever had before. That being said, it was pretty tasty – something for the Panda Express crowd. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 070662087268.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken seasoned with salt and pepper. The noodles came out really well; soft and definitely comfort-food textured. The flavor was a strong salty chicken and had an oiliness to it which really did give it the flavor of roast chicken – kind of like rotisserie chicken. Best chicken flavor noodle I’ve had in a ages! Very impressed with this one! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662088210.

#1786: Nissin Chow Mein Premium Savory Sauce And Restaurant Quality Noodles Sriracha Flavor

Here’s a new one from Nissin Foods USA – Sriracha flavor Chow Mein! Sriracha is kind of interesting. First, the way to pronounce is ‘sir-racha’ drove me nuts for the longest time, but I finally have conformed (under protest). Also, Sriracha is a place in Thailand (went there in May), however the Sriracha sauce me know here in the states isn’t a popular condiment there. It’s a bit of a mystery wrapped in an enigma. Wikipedia had this to say:

Sriracha (Thai: ศรีราชา,  [sǐː rāː.t͡ɕʰāː]) is a type of hot sauce or chili sauce made from a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt.[1] It is named after the coastal city of Si Racha, in Chonburi Province of eastern Thailand, where it may have been first produced for dishes served at local seafood restaurants.[2]

Okay I got that.

In Thailand the sauce is most often called sot Siracha (Thai: ซอสศรีราชา) and only sometimes nam phrik Siracha (Thai: น้ำพริกศรีราชา). Traditional Thai sriracha sauce tends to be tangier in taste, and runnier in texture than non-Thai versions.[7] In a Bon Appétit magazine interview, US Asian-foods distributor, Eastland Food Corporation, asserted that the Thai brand of hot sauce, Sriraja Panich, which Eastland distributes, is the original “sriracha sauce” and was created in Si Racha, Thailand, in the 1930s from the recipe of a housewife named Thanom Chakkapak.[7]  Within the United States, sriracha is associated with a sauce produced by Huy Fong Foods[2] and is sometimes referred to as “rooster sauce” or “cock sauce”[8] due to the image of a rooster on the bottle.[9] Other variations of sriracha have appeared in the US market, including a sriracha that is aged in whiskey barrels.[10][11] Various restaurants in the US, including Applebee’s, P.F. Chang’s, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Jack in the Box, Subway, White Castle and Gordon Biersch, have incorporated sriracha into their dishes, sometimes mixing it with mayonnaise or into dipping sauces.[2][12][13][14][15] The name “sriracha” is considered to be a generic term, since the creator of the Huy Fong Foods sauce, David Tran, did not trademark it.[16]

Now one thing that’s for sure is that in the USA, Sriracha sauce is commonly aligned with Vietnamese foods, most notably pho noodles. On most bottles you’ll see here, there’s no Thai on them at all. Trippy. Anyways, let’s see what kind of heat’s in this tray from Nissin Foods!

Here’s the underside of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, open lid to dotted line and remove sachets. Add room temp water to fill line and microwave for 5 minutes. Let sit in the microwave for another minute, then remove the lid and add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

From under the noodle block, some bits that look a lot like Thai chillies.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added barbecue pork, Salad Cosmo bean sprouts, coriander and Thai chillies. The noodles came out great – lots of them and they have a flat and slightly wide disposition. Good texture and chew. The seasoning lends itself well to the noodles. It’s flavor is like a sweet and spicy Thai kind of thing which packs a good amount of heat. It is very reminiscent of gochujang and topokki sauce – both South Korean things I like immensely. The bits of pepper hydrated well. Altogether a nice dish. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662088203.

The New Face Of Nissin Cup Noodles & An Old One, Too

I found out recently that there was a new Nissin Foods USA product or two that was new and asked for some samples – and they arrived today!

Hmmm what’s under the wraps?

So here’s what the new Nissin Cup Noodles look like!

They come in Chicken, Hearty chicken, Beef and Shrimp flavors. As you might first notice, there’s no cardboard outer packaging like they used to have. The container is made of a material that is made with the environment in mind (less plastic and paper wrap waste with 20% reduction in carbon emissions than the old packaging). It’s also microwavable (yeah, you weren’t supposed to microwave the old ones!). What’s also nice is there’s room in them to customize your noodles. For example, you could open the lid, drop in some broccoli, a little milk and some cooked chicken, add the water in and microwave it to make a creamy chicken kind of thing. They’re having a big content on their facebook page – check em out here.

These are Nissin’s Hot & Spicy Chicken bowls – with less sodium!

Here are some new varieties of Nissin Chow Mein trays I’ve not reviewed yet! Pad Thai, Roast Chicken and Sriracha!

A visor!

A big red drawstring bag!

Temporary tattoos!

A neat pen!

A couple of mousepads! I have been using one they sent a long time ago and noticed that it was really foul and dirty last night when I spilled a little gochujang on it… But here’s a new one!

Anyone know who this guy is?

This little chicken is Hiyoko-chan. He’s the mascot of Nissin Chikin Ramen, which was Nissin’s first instant noodle way back in 1958 and the first instant noodle on the market.

A little zipper bag.

A micro-szed noodle pack with a tiny Chikin Ramen noodle block shaped eraser!

Hey what’s this?

Hiyoko-chan can hold your Cup Noodles lid shut! Thanks to Brent, Linda and every one else at Nissin Foods USA for sending this great box along! Also want to say congratulations to Scott on the arrival of his daughter!

#1730: Wu-Mu BBQ Pork Flavor Chow Mein

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil the noodle block for 4 minutes and drain. Add in sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added barbecue pork, mung bean sprouts and white onion. The noodles had a strong chew to them and were plentiful.

It worked very well. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710175570722.
