Smells like pepper.

#1964: MAMA Instant Noodles Coconut Milk Flavour

When I tried the cup version of this, I liked it so much it got on the Top Ten Cups List for 2015. I’ve been waiting for the right time to try this one; since there’s probably only one in all of the United States I’m guessing, I really wanted to make it the right day. Well, since it is soon to expire, it’s the right day. Let’s have a look and see if it’s as good as the cup.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. to prepare, add noodle block to 250ml boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Add in contents of sachets. Stir and enjoy!

The dry soup base sachet.

Has a coconut scent.

A seasoned oil sachet.

A bright colored oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, baked chicken, coriander and seared sweet onion. The noodles are slightly different from the normal MAMA fare – slightly less crumbly – something I found fascinating and enjoyable. The broth was just as good as the cup variety – it has a nice coconut flavor and almost a haunting sweetness to it that’s not overwhelming, but just right. The oil has a tinge of spiciness, but it’s way in the background. This stuff is so intriguing; and I have fallen under it’s spell. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8951987101906.

#1215: GaGa Mi Instan Cup Milk Chicken Soup (Rasa Sup Ayam Susu)

Another one from my friend in Indonesia! Milk chicken soup – sounds interesting. I had another milk chicken soup variety awhile back which I enjoyed, so maybe this one’ll be good too. Let’s see what’s in this cup.

The side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself; contains milk. For this one, you open the lid, add all the packets, add 300cc boiling water and let sit for 3 minutes. Then stir until everything is combined and it’s done.

Here’s the lid (click image to enlarge).

Very fine powder.

A dual sachet of chili sauce on the left and seasoned oil on the right.

Here they are swimming together.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken with garlic salt and sweet onion, hard boiled egg and lime. The noodles are thin and light – they hydrated perfectly and have a gentle chew. The broth is fantastic – it’s a creamy flavor full of chicken goodness, some onion hints, and a slight spiciness. The vegetables hydrated, but the peas were a little crumbly. 4.75 out of 5.,0 stars.

Meet The Manufacturer: #1021: Samyang Foods Beef Flavor Ramyun (South Korean Version)

Beef flavor – you might be wondering what the difference between this and Samyang Ramyun is. Well, I think this one’s not as spicy possibly. Also, the key that Samyang Foods sent show this as having added milk. I’ve reviewed the export version before – this has only one packet as opposed to the export having veggies too. Well, let’s give it a try!

Back of the package (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

Powder seasoning packet.

Nice beefy flavor!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added rib eye steak sauteed with Worcestershire sauce and minced garlic, green bell peppers, broccoli, a slice of cheese, and sweet onion. The noodles are great as usual – thick and satisfying. The broth has a very slight spiciness – very slight. A nice rich beef flavor abounds. I really like this one! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8801073106222.

Recipe: Kit’s Cheesy Mac ‘N’ Udon

My wife was under the weather last month and I thought I’d make her something special. She liked some Saimin I made recently and she really likes udon. Another of her favorites is cheese. Well, I decided to bring all of that together and make cheesy udon with SPAM in it. Here for you is the method to the madness.

Kit’s Cheesy Mac ‘N’ Udon


  • 1 Box any brand Macaroni and Cheese
  • 1 portion of fresh Udon noodles (again, any brand)
  • 1 can of SPAM
  • Milk
  • Butter or Margarine


First, you have to prepare things…

  • Yep – pull out the cheese flavoring and toss the elbow macaroni, unless you have a use for it such as making artistic renderings or even eating it later.

  • Cut up some SPAM. There’s no fixed amount – just go with as much as you think you’d like.
  • Next, take your udon noodles and add them to a boiling pot of water. Cook until they are all loose and floating about. The great thing about udon like this is that its extremely quick – about a minute.
  • Drain the udon. Add SPAM. Add a little milk – maybe 1/4 cup. Add 3/4 tablespoon of butter. Add powdered cheese packet. Stir with vigor!

The finished dish (click to enlarge). My wife really likes it and we hope you do, too!


#371: Nissin Chow Noodles Alfredo Ramen Noodles

Chow Noodles Alfredo? Really? Aight, let’s do this.

Click image to enlarge. Five minutes in the microwave?! Holy cow man, this isn’t a steak this is instant noodles! Five minutes for anything other than a pot pie in a microwave borders on the scary!

Three packets? Wow this is exotic for the domestic stuff! Nissin and other companies usually don’t trust Americans to be smart enough to handle more than one packet!

Onion mixture straddling the premium straight-cut noodle block like a malicious pompadour. Added water to fill line, recovered and then microwaved for FIVE MINUTES!

So this is after the five minutes. The water got so crazy it sploshed out a little and made a little mess. Here’s the powder seasoning with the liquid seasoning on the left, violently moistening the noodles with aplomb.

Click image to enlarge. So these noodles taste great! Kind of dry to be honest, but that’s why I don’t usually get Alfredo, instant or otherwise. This has onion and cheesiness and greasiness and noodles. I this its a very close one. I bet itd be good with some chicken in it. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here. UPC bar code 070662087428.
