Here’s another one I received from a University student in Taiwan – thanks again! She’s working on her Master’s thesis and wanted info from me on a few products and what I thought of them – an honor! Let’s check out this variety with a Korean influence.
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add everything but the large retort pouch to 500ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in retort pouch contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dry base sachet.
Powder with bits of vegetable.
Another dry base sachet.
Unsure – white pepper?
A large retort pou ch.
Rich color and lots of beef.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles were just plain weird here. I don’t know why, but they really did not feel right compared to the other varieties I’ve had in this premium range. The broth had a ramyun kind of taste with a decent kick of spiciness. The beef was of good quality, however was also just not quite right. I think the issue here might be that Koreans do Korean food best while Taiwanese do Taiwanese foods best. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s one that came my way from Nissin Hong Kong – thank you! This looks interesting – a Korean variety from Hong Kong. It seems like Korean varieties are popular throughout southeast Asia – saw quite a few in November 2017 in Taiwan. Anyways, let’s have a look inside and give this Korean spicy one a try!
Nissin Demae Ramen Korean Spicy Flavour Instant Noodle – Hong Kong
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, add noodles and sachet contents to a500ml boiling water and cook 4~5 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A light powder – and lots of it.
The vegetable sachet.
Looks like a lot of spring onion and pepper.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and hard boiled egg. The noodles are definitely not your standard Demae Ramen – they’re thicker and definitely chewier – more like ramyun. They work very well with the broth, which has a nice spiciness. The bits of vegetable were decent as well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878000111.
