Ah the fruits of the sea! I wonder if it’ll be a fishy spicy thing going on? I sure hope so…
One packet – I bet its full of angry red flavoring inside!
Yeah, that looks angry alright! The veggies were underneath the noodle block and there was dehydrated fish in there too!
Click image to enlarge. Looks angry! Reddish broth and noodles and lots of seaweed and bit of re hydrated fish… Smells fishy. First bite contained an almost broccoli tone. That lent itself to deep seaweed flavors. Noodles are good. Wow this is pretty spicy… The fish is interesting but it has no chewiness or flavor – everything is overwhelmed in the end by the spiciness. Then the seaweed comes back… Weird stuff… Much like a hot and spicy Neoguri… Found a chewy bit – clam or mussel perhaps. Interesting combination of flavors here and some odd textures. Kind of interesting. I’m going to give it 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here.
Compare to Nissin’s Seafood cup – look at all that stuff!
Ladies and gentlemen, the enormous Ramen Box has been opened and we begin. This one comes from Korea.
A single packet of powdered soup base.
Holy cow look at this one! There’s the big pile of seasoning powder in the middle, but look at all this other stuff! Wow, I’m thoroughly impressed – I wasn’t expecting to see this much stuff going on here. Neat little naruto slices, sliced fish stuff, and fried somethings. I would love to know what all these things are! Lots of veggies too – carrot and onion and more.
Click image to enlarge. Bamm finished product. Mmm… The noodles are nice – chewy and thick… Was nice to find a lot of pieces of fish and veggies with every bite! This is a rarity in the instant noodle world I assure you. The broth had a very nice seafood taste and was very nice. I really was impressed with this one and give it 4.5 out of 5.0 stars! Get it here.
So here’s some Unif Shrimp Fish… What’s funny is that I have had the Super Bowl’s lately and they looked exactly the same as this, but this one doesn’t say Super Bowl on it so go figure.
From left to right: soup base powder, seasoning oil, vegetables.
From left to right: seasoned oil, veggies and soup base powder atop the noodle block. Added some boiling water and…

So this is the 200th instant noodle I’ve reviewed! So bright eyed and vaguely bushy tailed at 6:30am, here we go! I’d like to first thank Kit for picking #199 and #200 for my reviews and also for cruising us around and going to all of these Asian groceries around here. If you like the Ramen Rater, go see her Asian and otherwise snack reviews site at http://www.supertastysnacks.com – she just started it last week and she’s got her first few reviews up! Looking good!
So one packet of powder soup base. Very simple here. I should mention that these noodles are by Nongshim, which makes all sorts of products – mostly in Korea. But these noodles are made in the Unite States.
Quite a bit of that powder; I think it may be some extremely spicy stuff at first glance; usually Korean noodles that have a bright colored soup base like this that say spicy are tongue toasting…

I don’t think that people usually have this stuff with a couple of fried eggs in it – but I thought the chicken could use some egg. I found a couple little round thin pieces that weren’t from the egg in there. I think I figured out what they are from the ingredients: dehydrated pollock! Yes, little pieces of whitefish in chicken flavor noodle soup. Says CONTAINS: EGGS, MILK, FISH, WHEAT AND SOY. So I thought that was kind of weird. Anyways, on to the review. The noodles weren’t the best in the world – much like a Cup Noodles type of noodle. No backbone. The broth was perfect – not too salty and chicken taste was present. It wasn’t spicy at all to be honest as I had expected a death grip of heat I was somewhat pleased by this. There weren’t really any veggies to speak of, but what there were were pretty good. The fried eggs on top sealed the deal and made this one excellent bowl of noodles. I’m giving this one 4.5 out of 5.0 stars – yes really! This is the first Nong Shim Bowl Noodle I’ve reviewed, kind of surprising since it is so commonplace to see. I think I’m going to do more of these soon – as I begin the next 200 reviews! Get it here.
