Here’s what I had for lunch today (click to enlarge) – not a new review or anything, but thought it was interesting how many international flavors came together on this one. First, FMF Chow Noodles Masala Flavor from Fiji. Added kimchi, a Korean dish, some Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake from Japan, Dua Belibis chili sauce from Indonesia, some ham, stirfry veggies and sweet onion, and a 2 egg omelet with 2 slices of processed cheese and some Tabasco Jalapeno hot sauce – which I presume is all from the United States but might not be. Was pretty good – quite an interesting combo!
Here’s another one from Ramen Place! I’ve tried the cup version which just said 60 Ingredients, but it’s got to be the same thing here, just in a pack. Let’s give it a try!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge).
Here’s the noodle block – a big one.
Powder seasoning pack.
Lots of angry reddish powder! Grrr!!!
Vegetable pack – good sized too!
Loads of nice looking veggies!
Finished (click image to enlarge). I added some Bird’s Eye Stir Fry veggies, an egg which I boiled with the noodles, a little pinch of cheese and some Ajishima Kim Chi furikake! So starting with the noodles: chewy and very Korean. A slightly wider gauge than a regular instant noodle and a better quality noodle. The broth is great – a nice vegetable flavor and a good spiciness to it. The veggies were appropriately everywhere and re-hydrated nicely. I liked this one – and then I added all my stuff to it and it was even better! Good stuff – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 8801073110168 – get it here.
Here’s another Japanese bowl I got at Uwajimaya. The one yesterday was so good, I thought a kitsune udon bowl would be nice today.
Here’s the little sticker on the bottom of the bowl.
One single seasoning packet – pretty common with the Japanese bowls I’ve tried as of late.
Here’s everything awaiting the water. Fried tofu!!!
Finished (click image to enlarge). I added a fried egg with a dash or two of pepper, some kizami shoga (pickled ginger), some Ajishima Kimchi Furikake, some fried shallot and a little bok choy and sushinori (seaweed). The noodle were broad and full of flavor from the broth. Not very chewy but not soggy or spongy. The broth is sweet and salty and quite enjoyable. The udon is nice and sweet as well and delicious. Everything is quite nice here. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPc barcode 4904511604046 .
Here’s a Cooking With Dog where they make Omurice. Omurice is well known amnong ramen junkies as it appears notably in the film Tampopo.
Hey look! Mega-enormous Korean noodle bowl! Found this one at H Mart in Lynnwood, WA. Had the pack and the cup – now we’ll find out Hwa-ssup with this enormous King Cup! Yes we will. Yes.
Here’s all the info you could possibly want to know (click image to enlarge).
A single packet of powder seasoning – feels heavy.
Holy moly – yep, that’s a big mound of red, alien combating powder!
Finished (click image to enlarge); I let the noodles steep in the cup for two minutes and then stirred them and added an egg right smack in the middle and re-covered. Added some Ajishima Kimchi furikake, baby bok choy and a couple squirts of Texas Pete hot sauce. Noodles are pretty good – a little soft. The broth is the highlight here – red spicy heat! The veggies were here and there – decent amount. If you’re looking for a spicy noodle, this is the one, especially if you like Korean noodles. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 648436100620 – here’s the pack version.
This is a really cool video – and this guy in the beginning is really relaxed.
Another pack of Dragonfly brand noodles from China… Onion was great in a big bowl version – how will it be in a pack? Let’s see…
Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).
Three packets – clockwise from top left we have seasoned oil, powder seasoning and veggies.
Here are the seasonings on a plate – the oil was very aromatic and had a very nice onion scent.
Alas, our poor noodle block has been broken in transit from store to home! Here’s a small chunk of it.
Finished (click image to enlarge). I added an egg while cooking the noodles. Got a little baby bok choy to toss in at 99 Ranch Market as well as some Ajishima Kimchi Furikake rice seasoning. The noodles were very nice as usual. The onion flavor was perfectly balanced with the saltiness of the broth; not overpowering and not weak. The veggies were regular but not extremely abundant. Good bowl of noodles – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 721557450949 .
The Texas Onion Festival 2011 – This looks like a rad place to go get onion rings!
Booker T. & The M.G.s doing ‘Green Onions’ – I got to see these guys in the 90’s at Bumbershoot for maybe 20 minutes – was awesome!
