#1923: Conimex Oriental Noodles Teriyaki

Another one sent by James B. from the Netherlands. Thanks! So these Conimex variants have been interesting. The last one I had was a green curry whose only similarity to green curry was, well, a green hue. Let’s see what kind of teriyaki we have here!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. There are two ways to prepare this one and I thought I’d go with the noodles version instead of the soup with noodles since teriyaki soup doesn’t sound very good. Add noodles and veggies to a pot of water and cook. Drain. Mix in sachet contents. Enjoy!

The dry base sachet.

A tan powder with sesame seeds.

The liquid sachet.

Looks like oil and a teriyaki sauce.

A vegetables sachet.

Looks like carrots and corn.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added barbecue pork and spring onion. The noodles were very soft – almost mushy. More like the ‘roni’ in Rice-a-Roni. The flavor was anything but teriyaki; a hint of sweetness and salty. The vegetables came out nicely at least. 0.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8711200585038>.

#1905: Pirkka Nuudeli Kana Nudlar Kyckling

This one’s made by Thai President Foods’ Hungarian factory for a supermarket chain in Finland. So kyckling you ask? Chicken. Let’s open it up!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add contents of package to 320ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The soup base sachet.

Powder and looks like some herbs.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander and tau pok (tofu puff). The noodles have an almost egg noodle quality to them. They hydrated well in 3 minutes and have a decent texture. The broth may be why the noodles seem ‘eggy’ and it reminds me of chicken soup. It’s good and works well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6410405144768.

1764: Pirkka Nuudeli Tom Yum Katkarapu

This one’s made by Thai President Foods’ Hungarian factory for a supermarket chain in Finland. As many know, tom yum is a spicy Thai soup with lemongrass. Katkarapu translates to shrimp in Finnish, so this is a shrimp tom yum variant. Let’s have a look inside!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add contents of package to a bowl and then add 320ml boiling water. Cover and steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

A sachet of seasoned oil.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added fishball, mung bean sprouts, coriander, crushed red pepper and white onion. The noodles hydrated just right – flat noodle with nice texture. The broth is shrimp tom yum – so you get a lemongrass, a spicy chilli and a tinge of shrimp to it. All in all a decent tom yum. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6410405144782.

#1193: Nissin Soba Curry Noodles With Japanese Yakisoba Sauce

Here’s another one from Scott over at Nissin USA – thanks! These are neat little cups. They’re made in the EU for the European market. Let’s check it out!

The side panels (click image to enlarge). The product contains gluten (wheat flour) and soy. May contain traces of celery, crustaceans, fish, milk, molluscs, mustard and sesame.

The cup is made of plastic as is this lid. Note the holes.

A foil lid under the plastic one (click image to enlarge). See? You use the lid to drain the noodles!

The noodle block.

Liquid sachet.

Has a yakisoba and curry scent.

Some of the veggies from the bottom of the cup – there’s quite a bit.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, red, yellow and orange bell pepper, broccoli and baked chicken with Lindberg-Snider Porterhouse & Roast seasoning. The noodles came out pretty well – they have that lighter chew that yakisoba noodles often have; not spongy but more of a loose elasticity. The flavor is great – a cross of yakisoba sauce with a nice Japanese curry flavor. The little bits of veg did nicely. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 5997523313173.

[AMAZONPRODUCTS asin=”B0007Q426U”]I discovered this seasoning about ten years ago at a specialty shop. I use it all the time – it’s really good on beef, pork and chicken. A lot of nice herbs going on and I really recommend trying it.[/AMAZONPRODUCTS]

I couldn’t find any German Nissin commercials, so here’s a TV spot from the Philippines.
