The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups Of All Time 2020 Edition

Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups OF All Time 2020 Edition

After years of resisting the common practice of naming these lists after the year ahead, I’ve finally decided I’d conform with societal norms and start doing this with this list. So, there won’t be a 2019 edition (although between you and me that’s what this is as it’s coming out in 2019 and not 2020, but whatever). All lists going forward will be this way. My brain will be okay with it eventually, kind of like how I used to lose my mind when people would pronounce sriracha ‘sirracha,’ which IS the correct way to do s. Time heals all chunks of illogic I suppose. But anyways, these are my favorite and most memorable cup varieties from my reviews up to number 3,180. Let’s take a look at The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups Of All Time 2020 Edition.

#10: Maison De Coree x Samyang Ramen Gout BBQ Coreen – France

A collaboration of Samyang of South Korea and Maison De Coree of France bring this neat variety. A thick and chewy noodle is married to Korean BBQ sauce – a sloppy umami bomb which really is quite delicious. Original review

#9: Nissin Cup Noodles Alitas Hot – Mexico

Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups OF All Time 2020 Edition

Part of their Intensos spicy range, Nissin Mexico brings Alitas Hot – ho wings flavor. The heat level is very tame, however the flavor is off the charts with a very tasty grilled chicken taste. A really nice surprise in this one – worth a try. Original review

#8: MyKuali Penang Red Tom Yum Goong Noodle Authentic Taste – Malaysia

A show stopper, this variety has a super savory broth which is thick and flavorful. Strong tomato and lemongrass notes are present and couples with a great noodle and vegetables sachet. Tastes almost identical to tom yum I tried in Langkawi. Original review

#7: Nissin Cup Noodle Nice Rich Pork Shoyu (New Version) – Japan

This low calorie cup is not low on flavor. A different kind of noodle which has a very good mouthfeel is couples with a strong broth and included garnish which are second to none. At 176 calories for the cup, it makes one wonder why they don’t make all Cup Noodle varieties with this style noodle. Original review

#6: Mamee Chef Curry Laksa Flavour – Malaysia

Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups OF All Time 2020 Edition

These noodles are produced using Mamee Chef’s ‘Mi Tarik’ technology which emulates hand pulled noodles. The broth has a rich and luxuriant curry flavor and is augmented by a myriad of garnish including little tofu puffs. Original review

#5: Miandom Tasty Asia Green Curry Shrimp Flavoured Instant Noodles – Singapore

Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups OF All Time 2020 Edition

With a very unique wheat noodle whose mouthfeel is different from any other on this list, this one has a strong green curry flavor. It’s unique from top to bottom and really delivers a nice green curry experience. Original review

#4: Maruchan QTTA Curry Ramen – Japan

Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups OF All Time 2020 Edition

QTTA (pronounced coo-tah) translated to ‘I’m full/satisfied.’ A cup full of rich curry and thick noodles, with a lot of different included garnish. It definitely should fill you up. Original review

#3: Nissin Cup Noodles Very Veggie Spicy Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup – United States

Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups OF All Time 2020 Edition

Here you see the Very Veggie Spicy Chicken variety, but truly the whole range which includes beef, chicken, and soy sauce flavors hold this spot – they’r equally good. The sheer amount of vegetables work with the base to create just about the most savory broth you could imagine. Really something that should be experienced by every noodle fan. Original review

#2: MyKuali Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle Authentic Taste – Malaysia

Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups OF All Time 2020 Edition

If you like prawn like I like prawn, and I really like prawn, you’re going to be exceedingly enthused about this variety. The sheer amount of prawniness is just wonderful – a thick, sweet and spicy broth, great noodles, and included fried onlon just come together so well. Original review

#1: Nissin Cup Noodles Gourmet Sabor A Caldo De Camaron – Mexico

Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups OF All Time 2020 Edition

While other images in this list show the product with additions I’ve made, this one does not. What you see is what you get, and you get a seriously wonderful thing here. A vibrant prawn broth with Mexican flavor, ample garnish (including those reasonably sized shrimp there) and great noodles come together in this one. An absolutely incredible topper to this list. Original review

Well here we are. The last of the French Samyang stuff. I’ve really found these to be really quite good and hope to see more from them at some time soon – maybe packs? Anyways, this is a coconut chicken flavored variety. Let’s dig in!

The noodle block.

A dry sachet.

A light powder.

A bit of vegetables loose in the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). This was nice. A good gauge of noodle with a soft tooth meets a very strong chicken flavor and coconut taste broth. Kind of like ‘chicken noodle plus.’ Not bad. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8805957019486.

#3170: Maison De Coree x Samyang Ramen Gout Carbonara - France

Here’s yet another one from France~ I think many are surprised that France would want instant noodles but I mean, they do enjoy food in France, if you didn’t know. Let’s give this new Carbonara variety a peek and see if it’s tasty!

Loose bits from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, crispy fried garlic, and barbequed pork. The noodle hydrated well enough, although could have ben slightly further along. My thought is that this would occur during the eating. The ‘soup’ thickens quickly and has a kind of mushroom cheese hit to it which is tasty and savory. The carrot bits work well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8805957019462.

Here’s another interesting one from South Korea for a French company. Pretty neat I must say. Korean BBQ is one of my absolutely favorite things. Marinated meats cooked at your table and served with a myriad of banchan; an array of small plates with different pickled and otherwise modified vegetables and tofu. Let’s give this a close look.

A sweet smelling sauce.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, green onion, sesame seed, and bbq pork. The noodles come out well – not spongy and with a decent chew. The sauce really goes the extra mile – taste like the Korean BBQ sauce we’ve used many times for cooking at home. Included vegetable garnish was on point and crisp. I really do hope a pack version of this comes out! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8805957019479.

I was looking on Facebook and a friend from Samyang Foods posted something about developing a range specifically for France. Having never reviewed anything for the French marketplace, I thought this would be really great to try. Well, they arrived recently and so today we start with this interesting variety. What is it? Well, most likely it’s the standard buldak bokkeummyun fire noodle in different clothes. But we’ll find out. Let’s have a look!

Sesame seeds and seaweed.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles were a bit thinner and chewier then the ones in the regular buldak bokkeummyun cup you may have had. Enjoyed them. The flavor was very close but a little tastier. Spiciness seemed less. Honestly, I liked this quite a bit! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8805957019455.
