#459: Gefen Oriental Style Ramen Noodles Imitation Chicken Flavor

So here’s one I got from Ramen Rater contributor Michael M. from Staten Island, NY. He said he found some of these down the aisle with kosher foods at his grocery store. Well,  let’s give it a try!

So one thing that I find interesting – he sent me some that were chicken flavor and some that were imitation chicken flavor. This just says chicken… Another case of ‘how the heck to they tell which is which in the factory?’

Pretty much your standard Top Ramen-esque packet of flavoring.

So not bad – the noodles were a slight bit better than I expected; slightly more backbone than cheap ramen. The broth was kind of watered down though and I think 1 3/4 cups of water might have combated that. Not bad, not something to write home about. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#308: Tradition Imitation Chicken Flavor Vegetarian Ramen Noodle Soup

Here’s something new – was blown away that I hadn’t noticed it before. This is kosher ramen! It’s made in Canada for a company in Los Angeles called Tradition…

A stamped number on the foil but other than that no identifying characteristics…

Yellow imitation vegetarian flavoring!

Click image to enlarge. So I added two eggs while the noodles were boiling. So this reminds me of Nissin Top Ramen but with a less salty flavoring. Not bad – it’s very nice. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. Would be nice to see some veggies. Get it here.

So nothing on YouTube fitting this so I went with dudes showing you how to make top ramen and mispronouncing it. Peace.
