#4471: Nissin U.F.O. Korean Hot Chicken Flavour – Singapore

#4471: Nissin U.F.O. Korean Hot Chicken Flavour - Singapore

This is definitely a challenge to the popular spicy Korean varieties that are so popular right now. I’m really curious if it will also bring a Singaporean savoriness. Logically, this will be formulated to appeal to Singaporeans; like how we have American Chinese cuisine here, perhaps there’s a Singaporean Korean cuisine there? I don’t know but I think I’ll find out shortly! ...see full post

#4431: Indomie Mi Keriting Rasa Ayam Panggang – Indonesia

#4575: Indomie Mi Keriting Rasa Ayam Panggang - Indonesia

A huge thanks to Pher Engi of Australia for sending this among many other Indonesian varieties recently – truly above and beyond. This is one I really loved for a long time when it was an export version to the United States, however it stopped coming our way. This stuff is top notch and really thrilled to be able to review it again. The name translates to curly noodle with grilled chicken flavor. It also comes with a soup to be served alongside. Let’s begin. ...see full post

#4346: Acecook Hao Hao Mi Goreng Shrimp & Onion Flavour – Vietnam

#4346: Acecook Hao Hao Mi Goreng Shrimp & Onion Flavour - Vietnam

Found this one at an Asian grocery on Evergreen  in Everett, Washington recently. I hit them up once a year or so and usually find a few varieties I don’t usually see anywhere else which is very nice! This one I think I’ve seen before online, but never in the ‘wild.’ Well, let’s give it a try! ...see full post

#4160: Lin Jia Ya Tou 2x Spicy Salted Egg Yolk Flavour – China

#4160: Lin Jia Ya Tou 2x Spicy Salted Egg Yolk Flavour - China

I’m getting this post ready to go the day before Lunar New Year – – we went to a big Asian grocery just north of Seattle yesterday and shopped for noodles. They usually have some really neat things in store for the special holiday! This is supposed to be an extra spicy salted egg variety – very curious about it – let’s check it out and see if it’s truly ultra spicy! I should note that I had no clue my lens was so greasy – which is a bummer since I did three shows and a mukbang while it was like this… So, forgive me. It’s clean now, although a little late… ...see full post

#4136: Lost The Pot Noodle Roast Chicken Flavour – United Kingdom

#4136: Lost The Pot Noodle Roast Chicken Flavour - United Kingdom

This one comes by way of my good friend (who actually was Knighted) from the UK I met via the Ramen Junkies group a little while ago. Thank you, bro! I’m a huge fan of British varieties and especially interesting ones from Pot Noodle. Let’s see if this one is as bland as he says it is. Sadly, I have no tinned pangolin to add to this one, Sir JB will be happy to see the absence of corn. ...see full post

Meet The Manufacturer: #4104: Best Wok Mi Goreng Original – Indonesia

#4181: Best Wok Mi Goreng Original - Indonesia

This is one jazzed company. Why? A big time influencer in Indonesia says that she likes their mi goreng better than Indomie’s. That’s truly a big deal – and so here we are with their new recipe for mi goreng to find out whether I agree. I did do the hot and spicy and honestly, that one was great – especially since it has a nicer oiliness oto the noodle and wasn’t as dry as their competition – I’d say I liked Best Wok’s better. Let’s see how this new original mi goreng fares. ...see full post

#3997: Fashion Food Tom Yum Shrimp Creamy Flavour Instant Noodles – Thailand

#3997: Fashion Food Tom Yum Shrimp Creamy Flavour Instant Noodles - Thailand

Yet another one from an Exotic Noods subscription box – use coupon code THERAMENRATER for a discount! These are neat but a pain at the same time. The plastic bowls with lids can be reusable which is cool, however the labeling is impossible to scan, so that poses issues for me – but thankfully not for you. Let’s check it out! ...see full post

#3952: Thai Chef Artificial Duck Flavour – Thailand

#3952: Thai Chef Artificial Duck Flavour - Thailand

It used to be that I would shy away for the odd duck flavored instant noodle that would cross my desk, however these days I see them and a smile crossed my aging face. Duck. It reminds of when I have been in Asia, a place I so wish to see again. These are made by the same company that makes the MAMA range of noodle products, undoubtedly one you’re familiar with if you are a noodle aficionado. Let’s give this duck noodle a try as I look back wistfully at the days of dreams in Asia past and hopefully the future untold they will hold. ...see full post

#3633: Sau Tao Laksa Flavour Ramen – Hong Kong

#3632: Sau Tao Laksa Flavour Ramen - Hong Kong

I had this one a while back but the packaging was a little different, so this one gets a new review. I’ve been incredibly impressed with the laksa and ton yum kung flavor profiles coming from Sau Tao – so much that they’ve been on the Top Ten for 2 years now. What’s more is they pair them with a myriad of noodle varieties. Let’s do up some laksa! ...see full post

Meet The Manufacturer: #3605: Vi Huong Spicy Shrimp Flavour Instant Noodles – Vietnam

Meet The Manufacturer: #3604: Vi Huong Spicy Shrimp Flavour Instant Noodles - Vietnam

I really like this packaging – paper with a protective inner liner. It’s definitely unique and I must say I wish more companies would do things this way. It’s so much easier for me to take pictures of the packaging – much less glare! Let’s give the contents a try! ...see full post

Meet The Manufacturer: #3580: Sau Tao Laksa Flavour Rice Vermicelli – Hong Kong

Meet The Manufacturer: #3580: Sau Tao Laksa Flavour Rice Vermicelli - Hong Kong

There are so many varieties these folks make and I’m glad because this has been one of the most varied Meet The Manufacturer series yet. This is a flavor however I could revisit with a different noodle pairing repeatedly with enjoyment, as well as their Tom Yum Kung. Laksa is a tasty thing! Let’s make this one and see how this pairing goes as we march towards review 4000. ...see full post

Meet The Manufacturer: #3574: Sau Tao Taiwanese Style Sliced Noodle Shallot Oil Flavour – Hong Kong

Meet The Manufacturer: #3574: Sau Tao Taiwanese Style Sliced Noodle Shallot Oil Flavour - Hong Kong

I’ve had a lot of Taiwanese dry noodles in my day, but never any hailing from Hong Kong as far as I can remember. Maybe, but I don’t think so. These noodles are without a broth – they’re from simple ingredients, too. You boil, drain, add in some ingredients, stir and eat. These are also considered mix noodles. Let’s mix it up and see what we get! ...see full post

#3492: Kang Shi Fu Artificial Mushrooms Chicken Flavour – United States

#3446: Kang Shi Fu Artificial Mushrooms Chicken Flavour - United States

Here’s one of a bunch that I found at a 99 Ranch Market near me. I have seen quite a few articles with folks saying that the correct name is Ranch 99 Market. This is incorrect. The store is called 99 Ranch Market. People will debate anything even though they are incorrect, shown data proving they’r incorrect, and just stupid. But year. Let’s look at this one. ...see full post
