There was a lot of them and they were nice. The broth was very good. It had a decent oiliness and great curry taste. I especially liked how the sweet soy sauce entered in with something a little different. The fishcake bits and veggies hydrated very well. A very nice, well rounded bowl. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8888107001807.

The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2014 Edition


If you like it hot, you’re in for a real treat here. These are the spiciest instant noodles you can get that I’ve reviewed from my 1,446 reviews thus far. If you can’t handle spicy foods, these definitely aren’t for you – these are serious! Many of these were so hot, I couldn’t finish the bowl – and I can handle a decent amount of heat! I used to review hot sauces! Anyways, Hope everyone is having a great summer and here are the spiciest instant noodles of all time for 2014!

#10: Nongshim Harmony Korean Spicy Noodle Dish With Chipotle – United States

This unique instant is very new and quite spicy. What’s interesting about is that you can serve it hot or cold, but the spiciness is going to bite you either way! This is the only variety I’ve found featuring chipotle pepper heat. Original review

#9: Mamee Mi Segera SLLRRRP! Perencah Kari Xtra Pedas – Malaysia

The noodles are good – plump with a nice chewiness. The broth is very spicy and hot – not for the faint of heat! It has a good curry flavor to it. If you like spicy curry, check this one out. By the way, Kari Xtra Pedas means extra hot curry if you couldn’t figure that out! Original review

#8: Maggi Extra Spicy Curry Instant Noodles – Singapore

2014_8_4_tts_008Maggi 2 Minute Curry is a nice instant with a little bit of heat, and with the demand for more hotness, they made this new variety. Extra Spicy Curry has a really great flavor to it and a heat that will definitely challenge many. Original review

#7: MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle – Malaysia

2014_8_4_tts_007When MyKuali’s White Curry Noodle hit this list last year, there was a bit of a craze for it in Malaysia! People really wanted to give it a try. Not only is it retaining it’s spot this year on the spicy list, but it is the reigning number one on The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time 2014 list. If you can, you have got to try this spicy marvel! Original review

#6: Indomie Curly Noodle With Chicken & Chilli Paddi – Indonesia

This one’s a lot of fun; kind of like Russian roulette on a plate! You’re eating your noodles and all of a sudden wham! There’s usually a couple of these little chillies in there and they pack an extreme punch. You’ll definitely know it when you find it! Original review

#5: emart Dare You! Habanero Jjamppong – South Korea

Extreme heat is paired with nice bit of seafood broth and lots of bits of seafood. All the fire and flavor melded together with thick ramyun noodles make it hot as well as delicious. This one comes in at 1,960 SHU (Scoville Heat Units). Original review

#4: Paldo Teumsae Ramyun – South Korea

On the list for three years now! Another South Korean ramyun with serious kick to it. This isn’t to be trifled with!  Teumsae has restaurants in South Korea which serve up some seriously spicy fare. I really like the text underneath the word Teumsae which reads, ‘Flavor. Culture. Human’ Original review

#3: Samyang Foods Buldalk Bokkeummyeon – South Korea

I would say that I’ve seen dozens of videos of YouTube showing people competitively eating this one. This stuff is extremely hot. Another brothless variety and it really packs a punch as well as has a nice taste to it. Thick ramyun noodles round everything out nicely and will transmit the spicy sauce to your tongue. Original review

#2: Paldo Bulnak Bokkummyun Spicy Fried Octopus Ramyun – South Korea

See that little octopus on the package with the smile on his face? He’s laughing. Laughing as he watches you sweat as you eat this ultra spicy ramyun! I’m not kidding this one was over the top spicy! Bring a fire extinguisher. Original review

#1: emart Dare You! Habanero Ramyun – South Korea

For the third year running, this stuff tops the list. See the little guy in the top right? Yeah – it’s not one to underestimate; this is violently hot. The broth just keeps delivering the heat and it’s just insane. Try licking a lit candle – I swear this stuff is hotter! Original review

#343: Super Bihun Goreng Instant Fried Rice Noodles

This is definitely the most unique of all the packages of noodles I have ever found. Let’s get started.

Just under where it says Super, notice the little logo? It looks like a falling bomb! I don’t know what else it could be considered to be – so to start off with, that’s pretty awesome. The red banner going across exclaims “Instant Bihun Lezaaat!”  I thought this was weirdness, but I figured I’d better get digging. Google Translate says Bihun means Angerl Hair and didn’t come up with anything for lezaaat, but lezat means delicious.

Okay now in the image of the food, I gotta say that a chicken drumstick chucked in the middle of noodles is something I find most weird.

Finally, bottom right – Ekstra Minyak Bawang – translates to extra garlic oil.

These look really familiar – like the Mi Goreng by Indomie. These also come from Indonesia so I’d imagine that’s why. From right to left, garlic seasoned oil, sweet soy sauce and chili sauce.

Here’s the bomb – I mean the bumbu – I mean the sauce – I mean the powdered seasoning…

I thought a pic of the noodles would be good since they are a little interesting. Also, this is a drain thing – you drain the noodles.

After draining you put them in a bowl that has the seasonings and stir. Clockwise from top: powdered seasoning, garlic oil, sweet soy sauce and chili sauce.

Click image to enlarge. Bam. Two fried eggs, a little fried shallot and some kizami shoga – pickled ginger. This was really really good stuff! It reminded me of some of Indomie’s things – the Mi Goreng line for sure. I liked the noodles and the seasonings were very nice too. Altogether, this was a very enjoyable and satisfying breakfast. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s how to make it homemade!
