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.

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.

Today, we part ways with Miandom and their Tasty Asia range. I have a feeling green curry and black pepper crab might not be the only products we see from this new company. This is the green curry cup version. Let’s take a look!

Greenery and peppers.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, tau pok, and a little chilli powder. The noodles are interesting – while they have the tension and chew of something that I would at first glance think a rice noodle, these are indeed wheat noodles according to the labeling. They came out nicely – good chew and gauge. The broth is a luxuriant green curry flavor with a nice crescendo and little peaks of spiciness. Perfect there. The included bits of greenery and augmented with rings of chilli pepper which are pleasing to the eye as well as the palate. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8885014951010.

Singapore A Pictorial History

I really want to visit Singapore someday – technically, I’ve been to Singapore. We spent an hour running across travelators from one end of Changi Airport to the other to get to our connecting flight to Penang. But I’d like to have some time to enjoy the place – maybe outside the airport!

Here we have a black pepper crab noodle cup from Miandom’s Tasty Asia range. Black Pepper Crab is another very popular flavor in Singapore – let’s see how it stacks up!

An interesting mixture.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, fried onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles came out pretty well – on the chewy side of the aisle but worked nonetheless. The broth reminded me more of a hot and sour soup. However, the included bits – especially the egg- were very welcome and of good quality. I really enjoyed how the egg has flavor to it whereas usually egg does not as far as their presence in a noodle cup is concerned. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8885014951027.

Miandom’s Tasty Asia range currently has three options: a green curry shrimp pack and cup and a black pepper crab cup. Today I’ll be reviewing the pack version. You get 4 packs in this large bag. Green curry is good stuff! Let’s see how it does!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added tau pok, hard boiled egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, chilli pepper, fried onion and coriander. The noodles came out very well – strong chew and gauge. The broth was a little disappointing. I think 600ml really was much too much water for this and perhaps 450-500ml would have done this justice. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8885014850013.

This is kind of embarassing. So I Wasn’t exactly sure what this box was when I was opening it up, and so I started recording the Unboxing Time With The Ramen Rater video thinking it was from a different company! Well, it was open! I had to restart the video and pretend to open it! But it all worked out deliciously. Let’s havbe a look!

Alright – yeah so this was a pretty neat package – thanks again for sending these along! Following this post will be the reviews!

Unboxing Time: Miandom Instant Noodles From Singapore

This box arrived by way of my buddy the DHL driver. So I initially thought they were something else and started the video – then I see it’s not so if it seems like I’m a little funny in this one, it’s sheer embarrassment because of that… I had to improvise because I’d opened it – so watch for that. Okay – let’s crack it open!
