New Maruchan Gold Ramen & Fire Yakisoba – United States

#864: Unif Tung-I Instant Bean Vermicelli Chinese Spices Tong Tsai Flavor (Bean Thread)

I have absolutely no idea about this one. First off, it’s been quite a while since I’ve had a Unif Tung-I pack. Second, I usually don’t like bean thread. Third, Tong Tsai? What’s that? Well, I’m not sure.

Here’s the back of the packaging. Click to enlarge.

Here’s the block of bean thread.

Powdered seasoning.

Looks like there are bits in there. Upon a little taste I get sweet, salty, onion? Garlic?

Seasoned oil packet.

Looks good and weird. I have somewhat high hopes of this being an interesting one.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Look rather art-like with the curves toward the top and little bubbles towards the bottom. The noodles are thin and funky as bean thread usually is. It is also really long and hard to break off with your lips. I went the kitchen scissor route and cut them. Much easier to eat that way! The broth is salty and kind of greasy with hints of garlic, onion, maybe shallots too. I am surprised; I liked this one and actually ate all of it! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars – fascinating!

If my kid did this, they’d be grounded. Period. Also, it’s ramen – rah-men.

#351: Nissin Top Ramen Picante Beef Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

 

So today I opted for something different from Nissin – Top Ramen Picante Beef. Kind of funny; why don’t they make a teriyaki beef or a stir fry flavor over here? Anyways, here we go…

A single packet of flavor – rather non descript too.

Dark and slightly chunky powder.

Click image to enlarge. Added one hard boiled egg (sliced) and some kizami shoga (pickled ginger).  The noodles are your standard Top Ramen noodles. Tasty, industrial strength and relaxingly expected. The flavor was a little spicy actually and I enjoyed that. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here. UPC bar code 070662010129.

For those keen on regurgitation, here’s some soup.
