#3326: Nissin Miojo Nissin Lamen Hot Sabor Galinha – Brazil

#3326: Nissin Miojo Nissin Lamen Hot Sabor Galinha - Brazil

I was told a while back that Brazilians don’t go all in for ultra spicy and that this range does have varieties that are spicier than others, but not super duper spicy. Either way, this sounded like a good one for today, so here we go.

Nissin Miojo Nissin Lamen Hot Sabor Galinha – Brazil

A dry sachet of seasoning base.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken topped with Melinda’s Hot Sauce, soft egg, spring onion, and fried onion. Noodles have a thicker and chewier gauge than most instants which was nice. The broth is thick as well and had a very tasty chicken taste. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 7891079012864.

#3311: Paldo Teumsae Ramen (9,413 SHU) – South Korea

Paldo Teumsae Ramen (9,413 SHU) - South Korea

I’ve been wanting to try this one for a great while. Happily, they were sent along by my new contact at Paldo! Thank you very much! This one screams mukbang to me but as some of you might know already, mukbang is something that’s getting harder and harder for me these days. I used to eat a LOT mre, and now I exercise and my diet is much more regulated. To put it bluntly, scarfing down a big block of carbs is easy when you do it more often than I do now.But of course, I’ll give it a shot.

I think this one will definitely test my spice handling; that’s another thing I haven’t done a lot of recently. Handling spicy foods seems like it’s kind of like a muscle – if you don’t exercise it at all it gets weak. Let’s give these a try!

Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles and sachet contents in 500ml water for 3~4 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A dry sachet of soup base.

A dry sachet of vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, egg, beef sauteed in soy sauce, narutomaki, spring onion, and sesame seeds. The noodles are thick and luxuriant as always. Thicker than your average instant gauge, a hallmark of Korean noodle variants. The broth has a strong spiciness which isn’t for the casual spicy fan but for those who crave strong heat. Good flavor. Vegetable bits did well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8801128508858.

#3309: Itsuki Spicy Miso Tonkotsu Ramen – Japan

#3309: Itsuki Spicy Miso Tonkotsu Ramen - Japan

This one was in a Ramen Trunk subscription box.These boxes are full of extremely high end varieties that you’ll never find in the United States or anywhere outside Japan! Check out this link and use coupon code RAMENRATER20OFF for 20% off any single box or subscription!

I found some info online about this one and had to use Google translation –

● Miso-tonkotsu ramen where you can feel the taste in the hotness, which is made by adding the spicy taste with the chili pepper and soya bean paste to the pork broth, and the richness with the miso and the flower bud. 

● The soup is based on a hot pepper base with chili pepper and comes out with 2 kinds of rice miso and neri sesame seeds, and it has an exquisite and deep taste with the addition of the flavor of fish and the smell of florets. 

● Excellent compatibility with soup and straight non-fried noodles. 

● For hot taste, I blended several spices and seasonings, and I was particular about not only the hotness but also the quality of hotness. 

-It is a tonkotsu ramen that is unbearable for those who really like hot things. 

● Please note that this is a very hard ramen.

So this kind of sounds like it may be a mukbang – unsure at this point. But very cool either way! Let’s check it out!

Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Guessing it contains meat, but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 500ml boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The straight ramen noodles.

A dry powder sachet.

A wet sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added narutomaki, chashu, spring onion, black sesame seeds, habanero togarashi, chili oil, and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Was impressed by this one as it was very different. Noodles come out nicely – straight noodles are with a good mouthfeel and chew. The broth is very different insofar as it is quite spicy and it has this smoky pepper taste – kind of leaning in the direction of chipotle. It worked well and was fascinating to me. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901726014165.

#3307: O’Taste Pho Rice Noodle HOT – South Korea

#3307: O'Taste Pho Rice Noodle HOT - South Korea

Here’s another one I found over at Boo Han Market in Edmonds, Washington. This new O’Taste brand seems to be cropping up a lot lately. It’s interesting as it’s not exactly a Nongshim variety, but it’s Taekyung Food & Processing, and I’m unsure exactly how they fit in with the Nongshim corporate structure. Maybe I should find out.

Anyways, this isn’t the first Pho I’ve seen from a South Korean company. Nongshim’s Farmer’s Heart range (Farmer’s Heart is a translation of Nongshim) has one. Let’s give it a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added pork, star anise, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, red pepper flake, coriander, and sesame seeds. The rice noodles hydrated perfectly with a soft tooth that worked magnificently with the broth. Broth had all the hallmarks of pho and was believable. Impressed as I’ve never found an instant pho I truly enjoyed. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8809061676429.

#3020: Panco Lamen HOT Sabor Galinha A Moda Baiana - Brazil

Here’s one sent by Daniel from Brazil – thanks again! A new brand I’ve never tried – Panco! So Galinha I have been told is kind of like a ‘young hen’ flavor. I’ve also been told it’s a little oilier. Anyways, spicy chicken is what I’m guessing here – let’s see what it’s all about!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added cilantro, fried onion, spring onion, baked chicken with Cholula, nanami togarashi and Salt for Life. The noodles come out a little fluffy and very comfort foody. The broth isn’t salty, but does have a definite roast chicken flavor to it and it’s pretty decent – but the hot – I’m getting about as much heat as if you looked at yourself in a mirror holding a habanero and expected that would make you experience spicy flavor. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 7891203057723.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo organic mung bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, carved squid, Dodo fishball and coriander. The noodles hydrated a little weird. Thai instants often have a neat crumble to them I like a lot. However in this application, the crumble is paired with a slightly large gauge which kin of kills it for me. The broth on the other hand is great – nice heat level and tasty curry. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8857056004573.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sping onion. The sweet potato thread hydrated well. A couple of crosscuts with a pair of scissors made them more manageable. They have a kind of gumminess and clinginess that makes them a big clump of food – nothing wrong with that; it’s just their way. The broth has a sour taste from black vinegar and a chilli pepper spiciness – I expected Sichuan peppercorn in here but really didn’t come across is. Included pickled sprouts were decent in the end and gave a nice crunch. Beans were well hydrated as well. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 6926410372633.

The noodle is soft but enjoyable as a sturdier one in that they are of good quality and work so well with the broth. Now, the broth neither seems spicy, nor to I get any kind of Sichuan taste. It actually reminds me of the taste and heat level of the Great Value spicy noodles I’ve found in Canada – meaning heat is non existent. Nonetheless, they’re tasty good. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4973044020128.

A big thanks to Daniel down in Brazil for sending this along! It’s been really hard to find varieties from South America over the years. So Daniel told me to be wary of the labelling that this is HOT as Brazilians don’t tend to eat a lot of spicy foods. This kind of surprised me; I would have thought they would have.

ぺヤングやきそば #2879: Peyoung Cho-Omori Yakisoba Half & Half Gekikara

Hey look at this! This is most definitely the largest yakisoba I’ve seen to date!  This came by way of Hobby Link Japan, a great site that has all sorts of amazing Japanese things including instant noodles! Thank you very much! Here’s what they had to say about this unique variety on their website –

Can’t decide what kind of yakisoba you want? We’ve got you covered with this two-in-one set of instant noodles! You’ll need to split the 820ml of hot water required between both containers — which are kept separate so you can enjoy each flavor on its own.

Peyoung’s Cho-Omori style Yakisoba is packed with double the noodles and double the sauce! The Gekikara variety packs a super spicy punch in a regular half-size serving. Cooks in just 3 minutes!

Unfortunately, the site mentions that this one has been discontinued so you’ll have to go get the regular and spicy versions separately. But let’s have a look!

Flavor wasn’t really my favorite – the spiciness lent itself more to a bitterness which was just not enjoyable. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. Standard: Added spring onion and Kewpie mayonnaise. The gauge of the noodle is again very good as is the chewiness. The flavor is a sweet and tasty yakisoba which I enjoyed quite a bit. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. 3.0 + 4.5 / 2 = 3.75 out of 5.0 stars overall.  JAN bar code 4902885003465.

#2878: Samyang Foods Samyang Ramen Hot

When I first noticed these on Samyang Foods’ Instagram feed, I was really curious. I’ve had the hot Samyang Ramen in the past and liked it. But I thought I should give it a look, especially with the new red look to it.

A little background on this one: in 1963, Samyang Foods introduced Samyang Ramen. It was the first instant noodle in South Korea and after a little finer tuning (originally it was chicken, confused to be a textile), it came into it’s own as an iconic product of South Korea. This is the hot version. Let’s pop the top and check it out!
