APRIL FOOLS! After Almost 15 Years, The Ramen Rater Is Retiring



I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has been a part of The Ramen Rater over the past years. Without you, the site wouldn’t be what it has become; a community of people from around the world sharing one common interest: the instant noodle. 

I want to share my vision for the next step. First, The Ramen Rater website will continue to be online, but no further instant noodle reviews will be published after review #2000. This wasn’t an easy decision to make, but one that I feel is the right thing to do. I have a deep passion for another kind of product. Aside from my family, the proudest achievement I have accomplished has been The Ramen Rater. However, the next step will begin shortly, and I hope will exceed what I have been able to do with The Ramen Rater.

Desiccant is an indispensable item; it keeps the shoes we buy free of moisture. It keeps the vitamins we buy free of moisture. In fact, countless thousands of items come with these amazing miracles of science.

Instead of telling you of the amazing shift in my focus, let me give you a taste.

New posts will start to roll out April 14th over at www.thedesiccantrater.com. I and my family are excited and can’t wait to see how the site is received. Again, thank you for enjoying The Ramen Rater blog – but it is time for me to change hats once again.

Meet The Manufacturer: #1473: MAMA Instant Cup Noodles Shrimp Tom Yum Flavour (Extreme)

When I think tom yum, I think spicy, seafood and citrus flavors. When I think extreme thrown into the mix, I’m guessing that it’s going to be ultra spicy. One thing that Thai varieties tend to have in common is that when they say they’re spicy, they really mean it! Let’;s have a look at this new variety for this year by Thai President Foods’ MAMA brand and see what it’s got.

A fiery little concoction!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added lime, shrimp, sweet onion, bell pepper, coriander, lime and BonCabe Level 15 chilli seasoning. The noodles are very nice – the light crumble, sturdy gauge and nice flavor. The broth is definitely extreme – really nice citrus and shrimp flavor augmented with a blast of spiciness that just builds and builds! This stuff means business! The solid ingredients hydrated just perfectly for an added bonus and were of excellent quality. Serious tom yum! – 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850987145070.

Hey all your fans of heat – this is one you’ll want to try!

The Ramen Rater News – Noodle Re-Up Extreme

Yesterday we went to HT Oaktree market. Got a ton of new noodles to review! Gaze upon the massiveness!

Of course the next step was to figure out a storage solution. My ramen box is very small. However with a bit of balancing, I was able to get them all to fit nicely.

If you look closely you can see the record I use to cover the noodles as the steep when it’s bowl noodle time. So that’s the news for now – stay  tuned for more reviews!
