#2293: Nissin Nupasta Bacon In Carbonara Sauce Flavour Instant Noodle

Another leftover from the Nissin Hong Kong Meet The Manufacturer – thanks again! Been waiting for the right day to review this one – I should mention today actually is November 8th, 2016 – election day here in the United States. You see, I’m about sixty reviews ahead of myself. How? Well, I usually try to do two reviews a day – and been doing that for a while. I used to only do one a day and if I missed a day I would have to scramble to do a review and post it the same day etc etc. I can hear it ‘oh my god you eat two packs of instant noodles every day?’ Of course not; people reviewing wines don’t chug down a whole bottle to decide what they think of it. I take a couple spoons of broth and a few bites of noodle. In fact, I would say that after reviewing two bowls of noodles, I’ve maybe had the equivalent of 1/3 of a bowl, so there you go. This way if I need to take a couple days off, I can. Well, by now we know who is the new president when you’re seeing this. My daughter Miriam will have been born and Christmas may be over. Crazy. Well, let’s try this one – the cup version was in this year’s The Ramen Rater’s top Ten Instant Noodle Cups Of all Time list – let’s check the pack out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains pork (lard). To prepare, add noodles to 250ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents and cook over medium heat until sauce thickens. Stir and enjoy!

The sauce powder sachet.

A lot of light powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added pork, sweet onion and garlic sauteed in a little butter with some salt. The noodles are great – good gauge and chewiness – they feel like an Italian pasta versus an Asian noodle if that makes sense. The sauce is a luscious white with a bacon taste throughout. Very rich and very tasty. I wouldn’t have pegged Hong Kong to be the source of this in a million years – it’s just wonderful! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878190034.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2079: Nissin Nupasta Carbonara Flavour Instant Noodle

Well this looks interesting – Italian inspired pasta in a take out box style package. Reminds me of the Cup Noodles Pasta Style from Japan a reviewed before – at least in color scheme and design on the package. It looks like it stops there though! Let’s see what we’ve got here!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains chicken and pork. To prepare, remove lid and add in contents of clear sachets. Add cold water to fill line. Microwave at 700W for 6 minutes, 30 seconds (use this tool to convert for your microwave). Add in contents of green sachet. Stir and enjoy!

I did mention bacon, right? Mushrooms too!

The powder sachet.

Has a nice cheese scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). I’ll be honest; after converting the cold water instructions from 800W to 1100W microwaving, I was a little worried that 4 minutes and 20 second in hour microwave would pretty much obliterate this stuff. Fortunately, I was absolutely wrong. The noodles came out very, very well. They have a very fresh quality to them and a decent quantity. The vegetables and meats hydrated and cooked great – little bits of bacon, mushroom and other stuff throughout. The flavor was just great too – the white powder turned into a sauce with perfect thickness and quantity – and it tasted like an alfredo sauce. This was just plain awesome. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4897878660018.
