Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Lucky Me! Supreme Bulalo Artificial Bone Marrow Flavor Instant Noodles

Bulalo sounds interesting – a beefy soup. I think I need more info though – here’s what wikipedia had to say:

Bulalo is a beef dish from the Philippines. It is a light colored soup that is made by cooking beef shanks and marrow bones until the collagen and fat has melted into the clear broth. Bulalo is native to the Southern Luzon region of the Philippines.

Many references have evolved regarding its origin. One of it says that this type of dish originated from Batangas where you find the many versions of Bulalo.[1] Other reference says that it actually came from Tagaytay in which there are a lot of cows.

Nice – sounds like a beefy affair. I’ve noticed that the beef flavors I’ve experienced through this Meet The Manufacturer have been going for a slow cooked simmered beef kind of thing which has been nice. Let’s check it out!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a kind of fatty beef scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, spring onion, sweet onion and carrot I boiled desperately and added later. The noodles were a little on the spongy side at the end of the three minutes, but I found after a minute or two they became a little better. The broth has a nice beefy flavor. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 4807770271175.

#410: Lucky Me! Instant Bulalo (Bone Marrow Soup) Artificial Beef Flavor Instant Noodles

It’s been sitting in my big ramen box for quite a while now and been contemplating trying this one as of late. Got an email this morning from someone who read the article in the Herald about this site and this stuff was mentioned, so I thought no time like the present. Lucky me!

A couple of packets – powder on the left, strange little clove-like things and veggies on the right.

So this one is a ‘no cook’ variety, however I find that silly since it does cook just like a cup noodle. So you put the noodle block and seasonings in the bowl and add 400cc (about 2 cups) of water. Then you cover it. I’m sorry, but to me, boiling water is cooking; you’re making hot water soup right?

So I covered the bowl with the boiling water in it with the Sons of Champlin album and put a Pepsi 2 liter on top so the album might warp a little and the noodles would get their full coverage.

Click image to enlarge. Ok so here’s the deal. I have a bowl of Lucky Me! noodles a while back – Sotanghon I believe, and they came with ‘free crackers.’ This was a good deal and so I thought I’d try this one with some ‘paid for’ crackers. So there are two crushed and neatly arranged Keebler Club Butter Garlic crackers there. Also in the middle underneath the crackers is a single fried egg – it has a little pepper and a little Jane’s Crazy Mixed Up Salt.

The noodles are very good – they almost remind me of the noodles one would find in Campbell’s Beef Noodle Soup. The broth is nice and tasty. The veggies and little fake meatball thingies are really strange but fun. The whole thing ties togethe to make a tasty meal. I liked this quite a bit. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

Sweet – original commercials rock!

This stuff looks really tasty! Easy to cook too.

#312: Lucky Me! Supreme Bulalo Artificial Bone Marrow Flavor Instant Noodles

The last of the Lucky Me!’s I have in my noodle box. Bone marrow? Bring it with the beefiness!

I like the labeling on this one. I would go as far as to consider it a thorough extravaganza.

Powdered seasoning on the left, then a mini fork and a bag of weird veggie and fake meatery.

There you see the powder and the meatery fakery and the brick block cake or chunk of noodles. Refer to them however you prefer.

Click image to enlarge. One fried egg is in there. Broth – has a heartiness to it I found interesting- was like stroganoff. Noodles – well, not too super powered here… Veggies – so the floaty chewy things are back with aplomb. Still kind of unsettling and nonchalant. Overall, this fills the belly but that’s about it. The flavor ain’t nothin to write home about. Don’t smoke me a kipper – I won’t be back for breakfast for this one. 1.75 / 5.0 stars.
