#2896: myramen Japanese Vegan Noodle & Soup Soy Sauce

I haven’t seen my friend Matthew Bellah in quite a while and he’s stopping by today to hang out. So he’s a writer (you can read some of his stuff at www.matthewbellah.com) and also an odd sort as far as food goes. He’s a vegetarian, however I’ve known him to enjoy bacon and Jack In The Box tacos regularly. Anyways, I thought this myramen would be a good one to let him try.

myramen is a range of Japanese instant ramen that are Vegan, HALAL, animal free, dairy free, shellfish free, fish free, alcohol free, and dairy free. Matt’s also an accomplished guitar player and is bringing an acoustic over to play for the kids – Miles in particular is really into music so I’m curious to see what he thinks of it. That’s a lot of bases covered. Let’s take a look at this one.

myramen Japanese Vegan Noodle & Soup Soy Sauce – Japan

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Vegan and HALAL. To prepare, add noodle block to 2 cups boiling water and cook for 3~4 minutes. Take off heat and add sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A soup base sachet.

A lot of powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, sesame seeds, and nanami togarashi. The noodles are broad and flat with a nice tooth. The broth has an alright soy sauce flavor however I found it to be overly salty and slightly less so would have been preferable. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4589468000013.

#1395: Snapdragon Singapore Laksa Curry Soup Bowl

Found this in a local grocery store the other day. It’s definitely made of the United States market, but made in Thailand, which seems kind of funny as it’s Singapore Laksa Curry. Any way you slice it, it’s a Singapore Laksa Curry that made for the United States market which is something that truly piqued my interest. What’s different here also is that it uses rice noodles instead of wheat, so it’s gluten free. I’ve only had a Laksa that used rice noodles once before. Let’s have a look at this one.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains milk and crustacean. To prepare in a microwave, remove lid and empty all sachets into bowl. Add cold water to fill line and microwave 2-3 minutes. Let stand for 1 minutes and stir well. Enjoy!

When you remove the cardboard outer box, you are greeted by a plastic bowl with a clear lid.

The rice noodle block.

A dual seasoning sachet: base on the left and oil on the right.

Has a nice laksa scent.

Canola oil infused with paprika.

A coconut powder sachet.

Fluffy stuff!

The solid ingredient sachet.

Cabbage and carrot abound.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added vegetable fish ball, sweet onion, red and green bell pepper and seafood flavor tofu. The noodles were definitely not done after a 3 minute spin in the microwave and a minute of sitting. This surprised me as rice noodles tend to steep rather quickly. They were chewy and not really edible until a 2 minute extra ride in a pot on the stove. The broth had a nice rich laksa flavor, but it could have been a little thicker. The vegetable bits hydrated nicely. The rating based on microwave preparation as per box is 3.0 out of 5.0 as the noodles weren’t done (1100w oven to boot). However, if the noodles had been done, I would have given it a 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 815055010009.

This looks like the place to go in singapore!

#1117: Thai Pavilion Spicy Pad Thai Instant Rice Noodles & Sauce

My wife mentioned she saw this brand at her work and I was curious, so she brought a couple varieties home! Thanks, Kit! I’ve never heard of this brand before. It’s an interesting one as it’s made in Thailand but set up for sale in the United States. Let’s check it out!

The side and back panels (click image to enlarge). Says it’s all natural, gluten free and vegan. Contains peanuts and soy.

After you remove the cardboard outer packaging, this is what you find underneath.

An included fork!

Rice stick noodles.

The dry powder packet.

Has a nice peanut scent.

Shallot oil!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added red bell pepper, green onion, Vidalia sweet onion and beef. The noodles are your typical rice stick – they come out nicely after sitting is hot water for five minutes. The flavor is really great – spicy and rich with peanut, sweetness and other flavors going on. As far as instant pad thai goes, this is top notch. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars UPC bar code 734492823013.

Here’s a vendor at the Pattaya Floating Market in Thailand making pad thai.

#355: Nongshim Noodle Lite 275 Lite Udon Flavor With Mushroom & Agar Jelly

So here’s something interesting. This is for the health conscious noodle fan – from Korea, we have Nongshim’s Noodle Lite 275.

A couple good sized packets

Like I said, a lot of seasonings.

Click image to enlarge. So an easy and quick prep in the microwave. It’s nice that it’s so low in fat, but one would think that they would mention that the flavor of the red pepper shouldn’t overwhelm any taste of mushroom. In fact this was very disappointing. No issues with peppers mind you, just a bummer as we were hoping for some tasty mushroominess. Funky but healthy… 2.5 out of 5.0 stars.

#305: Lucky Me! Supreme Special Beef Carne de Vaca Instant Mami Noodles With Free Crackers

So I’ve reviewed another Supreme with the free crackers before. This time it’s special beef flavor! The tops are all the same on this line it appears…

So here’s the ‘front’ I suppose. I found it interesting that they put a sticker over something so I peeled it off. It looks like they covered up the Filipino text with Spanish for sale in the US; which seems strange since there are a lot of folks from the Philippines here!

Drove my Chevy to the levee and then ate a bowl noodle… Very interesting side image…

So they seem hell bent on letting you know ‘hey, these crackers are free – gratis – and you will like them!’ Powder and some kind of seasoned oil on the right and a veggie pack on the left.

Waiting for a bath…

Click image to enlarge. Added two eggs with a little seasoning on them. So the noodles aren’t bad – not really firm. The broth is interesting – a beefy flavor. I’m still unsure of the vegetable here but they’re fun and the crackers add a nice touch. A good bowl of noodles – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.
