Meet The Manufacturer: #2175: MAMA Instant Flat Noodles Clear Soup

It’s been fun trying these rice noodles – I don’t often have a bunch of them in a row and I was curious how it would be after a couple days but I’ve really enjoyed it thus far. Usually Meet The Manufacturers can honestly be a little trying – the same brand for a couple weeks. But I’m definitely enjoying this one! On with the show!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 350ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

A dual sachet – chilli powder and soup base.

The chilli powder atop the soup base.

A liquid sachet.

Garlic infused oil!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, Dodo fish ball, fried garlic and chilli flake. The noodles are wide and flat with a nice texture. As usual, I did a couple crosscuts with a pair of kitchen scissors to make them more manageable. The broth is a kind of salty, garlicky and spicy affair with a good oiliness. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850987201165.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2171: MAMA Instant Flat Noodles Tom Yum Flavour

I have all the noodles that MAMA sent in a big bag and going to blindly pick them out every day! Today, I pulled out this rice noodle – wide! Plus, tom yam flavor – definitely a good foot to start out with. Tom yam has a spicy and citrussy flavor to it – crisp and refreshing and tasty! Let’s have a look!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, simmer noodle in 350ml boiling water for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block – very wide rice noodles here.

A dual sachet of soup base and chilli powder.

Has a great garlic scent!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, lime wedge, mushroom and Dodo fish ball. The noodles are thin and slick – and wide, and tasty. Well hydrated as well. The taste is very good, but a little different than I expected; the lemongrass taste seems to be a little absent and it has a sweetness here that is very good. Alongside that is a nice bite of pepper and nice garlic oil gives it an great oiliness. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850987201158.

#649: Pot Noodle Chicken & Mushroom Flavour

Well, this is the end of the line. A few months ago, Cindy C. from England sent a nice big box of instant noodles containing many kinds of Super Noodles and Pot Noodle and this is the last of the Pot Noodle! After this, there are two pouches I’ll review called ‘Mug Shots.’ Thanks again Cindy! This has been a lot of fun!

Here we have the side panels (click image to enlarge).

This is so different from anything we have in the states.

Comnes with a single seasoning packet of soy sauce to add.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I’ll say that of all the varieties I tried, this was the best hands down. It was a light flavor, but decently so. The noodles got nice and done in this one. They are flat and broad. The chicken mushroom flavor was decent. I liked it! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars! UPC barcode is 5000118203503 – get some here.

Pretty rad Pot Noodle commercial.

Another really weird Pot Noodle advert.

#548: Pot Noodle Original Curry Flavour

Thanks to Cindy C. of Middlesex, England’s amazingly kind donation, we’ve got a myriad of instant noodles from the U.K. to review now! I’ve wanted to try Pot Noodle ever since I heard of it a while back, and so here we go with the first of many, Original Curry flavour!

Wow – an advertisement under the lid – don’t see much of that usually…

So where are the noodles you ask? Underneath this large amount of powder. Quite different from what I’m used to seeing in a cup noodle!

Whoa this is different too – a packet of garnish? Very curious about this one!

Click image to enlarge. Finished product. So I tried it without the mango sauce and then with it – definitely liked it much better with the sauce. The noodles weren’t bad – wide and flat. The broth was rather thick – I noticed that in the seasoning ingredients that wheat flour was rather prominent and I imagine that may have thickened things up a bit. The vegetable weren’t great but they were good to have in the mix. All said and done, for my first foray into the world of British instant noodles, I’m going to say I liked it and give these a 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  I found that you CAN get them on Amazon here!

Looks like they have pretty funny commercials for this stuff
