#2879: Peyang Cho-Omori Yakisoba Half & Half Gekikara

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!

It’s literally two full sized noodle blocks as you would find in the regular packages.

The original flavor yakisoba sauce.

A lot of liquid.

The second sachet – the spicy yakisoba sauce.

Another large amount of sauce.

Finished (click to enlarge). Spicy is top right. standard lower left. Spicy: added spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Noodles have a good gauge and nice chew to them. 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.

Yakisona and baseball – sounds like a good combo!

#1154: Golden Wheat Korean Style Shrimp Flavour Cooking Noodle

Here’s another one from my birthday trip to Canada in March! Thank, Kit! Thought it’d be nice to have something seafoody as it’s been a little while. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp.

Here’s the enormous noodle block.

The powder seasoning packet.

A very light powder.

The liquid base.

Looks more like a paste.

The veggie and shrimp packet.

A nice little melange of bits and pieces.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, red, yellow and orange bell pepper and Walla Walla sweet onion that I sauteed with a little garlic salt. The term ‘Korean Style’ seems to refer to the gauge of the noodle and not the texture. There are an amazing amount of noodles here with a nice texture and wider gauge than your regular baseline instant. The broth is light with a subtle shrimp taste and a slight oiliness that makes everything bind together well. The veggies did well – lots of seaweed. The shrimp were mediocre. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 6921555584514.

#437: Nongshim Big Bowl Spicy Noodle Soup With Kimchi Flavor

Honestly instead of Big Bowl I think these should be marketed as Huge Bowl, but honestly this is about what you would get if you bought a pack of Nongshim Kimchi noodles in a pack, except you would get better quality noodles there. These noodles are built for fast inflating and absorbency.

Only one packet – but like the bowl, it’s really really big.

So the veggies were already in the bowl and it looks like a decent amount of them. The seasoning is a nice reddish color – spicy usually red. The noodles look a little wide and I wonder how they shall taste.

Click image to enlarge. Finished product with a couple fried eggs with a touch of Lindberg-Snider Porterhouse and Roast Seasoning atop the eggs. Okay so the noodles first: lackluster. They were spongy. Kinda bummer. The broth was a smack in the mouth though – spicy goodness! The veggies were very generous which I liked. So my only complaint would be the noodle quality. I’m going to slap it with a 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here.

#350: Nissin Souper Meal Tomato & Garlic Shrimp with Premium Straight-Cut Noodles

Alright -first off, it’s my lady Kit’s birthday today! Happy Birthday I love you!!! She was just in California and brought me back some noodles.  I thought there were only two varieties of this stuff – apparently I was wrong! So here we go!

Soup powder on the left and veggies on the right.

So I have been annoyed at how a lot of my pictures have come out orangey. I have a full spectrum bulb I use with a swing arm lamp but it seems that that is the issue. So I tried just using the light from above in our main room, but check this bizarreness…

Oh jeez the finishing touch!!! Egad its sesame oil I think…

Click to enarge. Added two fried eggs. Some good stuff! Like a massive bowl of noodle stuffs. I didn’t detect a really shrimpy flavor. I did like the noodles and the broth and the large amount of good veggies. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662007044.

#283: Paldo King Cup Kimchi Pot Stew Instant Noodle

So a big hurking bowl noodle. The only time I’ve ever seen anything this size before when not a fresh udon bowl was the Nissin Souper Meals.  Its 2152mg of sodium and should pack a wallop!

Veggies on the left, soup base on the right.

I’m really pleased – looks like a lot of veggies here! Also the soup base has a nice red color to it.

I have a Prodigy CD that I use to hold down the lids on smallish cup noodles and the like but this required a full 12″ disco Tower of Power vinyl.

Click image to enlarge. Here’s the finished product with two eggs intermingled. I like this a lot. The noodles are firmer and chewier than I expected. The broth is nice – a little spice and a bit on kimchi flavor and the veggies are ample. The two eggs top it off quite nicely. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars on this one – nicely done! Get it here.

#209: Nissin Souper Meal Beef Flavor Minestrone with Premium Straight-Cut Noodles

It’s big, it’s burly, it’s insanity. I really think the USA is the only country that this is marketed to. Super size me ramen! 2960mg of sodium and 560 calories. But hey, that 14g of protein will help on the jog you take after eating this!

So a couple of packets – veggies and soup base. I was pleased to see the amount of veggies here.

Oodles of veggies! I tried a chunk of the uncooked noodle cake and a smidgen of the beef flavoring – wow that could be eaten just like that – very tasty stuff! But this isn’t dry ramen rater so I added the water and microwaved for the four and a half minutes.

One thing they add to these bowls are the ‘flavor enhancer’ otherwise known as the ‘finishing touch.’ I tried it straight and it was like a bit of beef fat and teriyaki and sesame oil. At least that’s what it tasted like. The ingredients were all encompassing and not broken down as to packet.

Click image to enlarge. Here she is in all of her glory. I christen this the USS Ubernoodle. I’m not going to lie – this is pretty good. The noodles are what you’d expect; a little mushy. But the veggies are nice and  a little sweet, there are bit of dehydrated beef [could be soya protein or textured vegetable protein – not sure] and the broth is nice and tasty – I think the finishing touch made it better. So the only issue is whether I can eat the whole thing or not. I tend to doubt it. I’m going to give it 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. I feel that the individual flavors and textures are good but together they kind of run together and don’t make me cheer. I think I would’ve enjoyed it more if it were spicy as well.
