#938: Maruchan Yakisoba Four Cheese Flavor

An absolute surprise yesterday! Found this and two other Maruchan Yakisoba varieties I’ve been hunting for for quite a long time! Let’s give it a try!

Here are the instructions on the lid (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block. Broad, flat noodles.

Here’s the big seasoning pouch.

A very light, fine powder.

Finished (click image to enlarge. Added sweet onion, sliced ham and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are broad and flat and quite nice! The sauce is good too – nice cheese flavor to it. I liked it a lot! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789007682 – get it here.

Here’s a community overview of where these noodles get made.

#400: Nissin Cup Noodles Seafood Curry Flavour (Hong Kong)

So for the 400th review, I went with one I’ve thought should be interesting – seafood curry. These are Cup Noodles that are not for sale usually in the United States. I’ve found two – Crab Flavour and Seafood Flavour, but this Curry Seafood Flavour came from Canada.

I think the packaging on these reflect a little more pride in the product as well as quality. For example, a Shrimp Flavor Cup Noodles for the US doesn’t have such ornate images or shiny gold on them. Of course, what matters is what’s inside.

Look at that – a ton of stuff is in this one! Usually the ones sold in the US have an eighth as much stuff. Was nice – an immediate curry odor filled the nostrils as only Japanese curry can.

Click image to enlarge. Nothing added. The noodles steeped perfectly. The vegetables and little bits of dehydrated fish came out just perfect, and the broth was very curry. My only complaint was that the curry flavor overwhelmed the seafood taste so that there was really none at the end of the day. I really liked this one though. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.

#326: Little Cook Instant Noodles TVP Curry Chicken Flavoured

So here’s another of the big ole Little Cook bowls. I would like to say first that curried chicken is one of the favorite things of mine. Let’s see if it’s good.

Here’s the side – yeah its big.

A little packet with some curry soup base seasoning.

Hooray for retort pouch! Full of sauce and vegetables!

Revolutionary and amazing!

Here’s the block of noodles with the curry soup base.

Click image to enlarge. The finished product. Okay first off the pouch contained some interesting stuff. It looks like those little brown round things are supposed to be chicken chunks, although its gotta be textured vegetable protein. The broth is excellent – nice curry flavor for sure. The noodles aren’t bad – nothing special. The veggies are okay too but kind of wish there had been more. Long story short, I liked it! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.
