Meet The Manufacturer: #2197: Mr. Lee’s Noodles Hong Kong Street Beef

The second review will be this beef cup! Very curious what will be in here – beef? To beef or not to beef? Well, only one way to find out!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add boiling water to ‘ridge line’ (looks to be just below the brim) and stir. cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The rice noodle block.

Looks like there’s a decent amount of freeze dried beef here!

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are flat and broad. They have a light chew and are plentiful. The broth is very nice – kind of a pho taste to it which works here. The bits of vegetable are just perfect – going to go out on a limb and say they’re the best veggies I’ve seen to this date in an instant noodle. The prevalent bits of beef were something to behold as well – good flavor and texture – definitely beef. Very impressed with it. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 0641243998695.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2196: Mr. Lee’s Noodles Warrior Fighting Shrimp

We start today with a seafood variety. I do believe this is the first instant noodle I’ve reviewed with the words ‘kick-ass’ on the front – hopefully a good sign, especiallywhen it comes to how spicy they truly will be. Let’s have a look at this, the first of six varieties I’ll be reviewing for Meet The Manufacturer this go around!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add boiling water up to ‘ridge line’ – looks to be just under the top of the cup. Stir and cover for 3 minutes. stir and enjoy!

Loose seasoning from the cup – nice large pieces of shrimp and vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles hydrated very nicely – flat and a little broad. The broth is thin and has a kind of shrimp flavor with a decent heat to it. The flavor is very light. The bits of vegetable are excellent and plentiful as are the shrimp which are of excellent quality and quantity. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 064124399868.

#1299: Mr. Noodles Noodles In A Cup Spicy Chicken Simulated Flavour

Here’s one my wife got for me on my birthday trip to Canada! Thanks, baby! Spicy chicken. Let’s check it out.

The cup.

The side panel from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

Detail from the lid (click image to enlarge). To prepare, empty sachet into cup and fill to 1/2 inch from the top with boiling water. Steep for 3 minutes, stir, and enjoy.

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Vegetables as well as seasoning in one sachet.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken, carrot, peas, sweet onion I has all sauteed with a little El Mexicano Adobo Seasoning and a sprinkle of colby jack cheese. The noodles are so strange; they smell like tortillas. I don’t understand why, but that’s what I get from them. They’re not the greatest in the world either and never seem to be completely prepared to me. The broth in this one wasn’t spicy, but it did seem to have a bit more flavor than the others in this line I’ve tried. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491002550.

Don’t mess with Canada – they’ve got their facts straight.

#1169 Mr. Noodles Noodles In A Cup Beef Simulated Flavour

Here’s another from my Canadian birthday trip! Thanks again, Kit! This one’s for my son Andy (check out his blog at www.andyslegostuff.com). Usually he goes for the chicken varieties, but beef is what he’s getting today! Let’s check it out!

Here’s detail from the cardboard outer (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.

Here’s the cup itself.

Vegetables and seasoning inside.

Andy’s a fan of noodles, but never likes broth. Also, any mention of spiciness has him running as well. Usually I get a little resistance when mentioning adding lots of veggies and meat, but he was open to it this time. Had a nice thunderstorm roll through after this and hung out on the balcony watching for flashes and listening for rumbles…

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added peas, carrots and beef. The noodles were pretty sad – very mushy and had a weird flavor. The broth is lackluster, although has a nice color to it. The veggies are only so-so. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 059491002352.

#1009: Western Family Instant Noodles In A Cup Oriental

Here’s another that we got in Canada on my birthday. Here in the area I live, Western Family is a store brand, but never have I seen an instant noodle of theirs. Honestly, I haven’t seen any store brand instants here – not that they don’t exist. Well, let’s check out these noodles in a cup!

Here’s what’s on the cardboard packaging (click image to enlarge). The instructions on the left are on the top and the Nutrition Facts on the right are on the bottom.

A plain white foam cup.

Here’s a close-up of the lid (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block. But where are the veggies and seasoning?

Well, the seasoning powder is here at least.

\Both the vegetables and the seasoning are in here! Interesting.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added kamaboko, green bell pepper, Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake, sweet onion, broccoli and kizami shoga (pickled ginger). The noodles are crumbly and of slight backbone. The broth has a medium bland taste of salt and vegetables, and the veggies were so-so. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 062639297121.

Tomorrow, we’re driving to Portland, OR. I’ve been given the great opportunity to check out a few hours of the instant noodle workshop offered by the Wheat Marketing Center! I’ll be doing a special post about my trip and let everyone know more about the Wheat Marketing Center and what goes on there. Stay tuned!
