Unboxing Time: Send Noods Fast

It’s Unboxing Time With The Ramen Rater!

So I usually wake up at 4am – no joke. I have two kids age 2 and 10 months. It’s kind of a necessity if I want to get anything done before 2pm – which is nap time. So I liked this box – neat assortment and extras. If you’d like to get one or something else on their website, head to Send Noods Fast and use the coupon code THERAMENRATER to get 10% off on your order! Thanks to Send Noods Fast for sending this along!

Awesome Gift From A-Sha Dry Noodle! Hello Kitty!

I saw this neat thing on A-Sha Taiwan’s website and thought hmmm… Wonder if they can find me one…


Wow! Twenty packs of A-Sha Hello Kitty noodles! Thanks! Want to get your own? Well, I hate to say it but you’ll have to travel to Taiwan and get some there – not for sale in the USA. Big thanks to Hann-wei, Young, and everyone at A-Sha for this very kind gift! Will review them soon!

A Gift From The President Of Nongshim America

It’s been a couple months since our trip to Nongshim in Rancho Cucamonga, California. I was sent a very nice gift from the president of Nongshim America to thank us for visiting and for our reviews! Thank you! This is a golden pot, a very standard cooking item in Korea used to make ramyun!

A nice new bowl for noodles!

A nice ceramic bowl.

This one’s interesting – it’s a stainless bowl that has an empty air pocket in the middle so hot soup wont burn your fingers if you’re carrying the bowl! I think a bowl like this was used when I had Naengmyeon once.

This one’s fancy – has a nice pair of fish in the middle and a craquelure that’s glazed over – really neat!

This one has a nice earthenware material and the paint drips are really neat! Can’t wait to try these all out – going to of course break ’em in with Nongshim noodles too! Thanks again! As always, my reviews are based on the quality of the products and the products alone – and I’ve really enjoyed Nongshim’s products a lot!

A Very Big Thank You

A big thank you goes out to Michael M. from Staten Island, NY who sent a nice box of noodles he found down the kosher aisle at his local grocery store. He’s been a fan of the site for a while now and really saved my ass when he noticed that the domain www.ramenrater.com wasn’t doing anything and the site was dead! Thanks!!!
