#3278: Uni-President Imperial Big Meal Beef Flavor – Taiwan

#3278: Uni-President Imperial Big Meal Beef Flavor - Taiwan

This is a big and somewhat heavy bowl from Taiwan. I’ve reviewed the version not made for export (this one usually goes to Hong Kong). What was funny about this one is that I found it up in Canada at a store in Aberdeen Centre – defintely not where this belongs. It’s full of beef and import restrictions would bar it from Canada. What a nice surprise! Let’s check out this one with Australian and New Zealand beef!

A dry sachet (watch these sachets get used on the episode of Instant Noodle Recipe Time below).

A wet sauce sachet.

A large retort pouch full of beef and sauce.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, sesame seeds, egg, and chili flake. The noodle is thick and has a slight brittleness and chewyness at the same time. The broth is a very thick and tasty beef. Included beef is on point and the gravy it comes in really add a lot of rich flavor to the soup. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710088412201.

#3108: Culley's World's Hottest Ramen Noodles - New Zealand

I got an email from Mr. Cullen a few weeks ago asking if I would be interested in trying his new spicy product. I definitely was – but what really piqued my interest what that this was coming from a company in New Zealand. I haven’t reviews many products from New Zealand and this being one with such a lofty claim really was interesting to me. It contains Carolina Reaper pepper mash. I’ve seen many do the challenge where they eat a raw Carolina Reaper pepper in one bite and then endure the consequences. But I have to say that the spiciest on on my top ten spicy list isn’t a slouch by any means, and I’m extremely curious how this will compare. Let’s do this.

A vegetable mixture.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are on the mushy side which is not the way I like them generally. The issue I had was steeping these – 3~4 minutes was most certainly not enough, and the amount of time needed wasn’t conduvcive to them not being mushy. The broth (which was more like a vegetable stew) was very flavorful and very thick. I got the taste of fresh vegetables and not very salty. The heat. This is NOT to be trifled with. At one point, my entire body was tingling violently, throbbing from head to toe and slightly numb. This could have been the cusp of going into shock. Not only that, I had extreme stomach cramping for the next 8 hours. But I conquered the bowl. As far as it’s place on the World’s Spiciest Instant Noodle Top Ten 2019 Edition? Well, you’ll have to wait for that, but I can definitely say it’s definitely in it’s own class. Only one other is in this class and it’s going to be interesting to figure which will be the new number one. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 9421904273924>.

As you probably know, I come out with an annual top ten spiciest list. Well, this product claims to be the hottest – period. It’s made with the infamous Carolina Reaper Pepper – something I’ll admit I’ve not come in contact with. This is my first look at them and I take a little time to check out what comes in the box as well as the ingredients and some nutrition stats.
