This one sounds interesting. While not a big fan of mushrooms, I do find that the onion is probably my favorite vegetable next to bell peppers. Well, maybe at par with bell pepper. I really like onions and bell peppers, let’s just leave it at that. Let’s take a look inside and see how it is.

So, I’m seeing a pattern. These are the thinner noodles and they’re the same as with the curry variety. Neither this nor that one come with a soy sauce sachet.

Okay maybe it does have soy sauce. I did see soybeans on the ingredients panel, but the paste sachet definitely smells like onion but onions aren’t mentioned from what I saw so I’m kind of on the fence here.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added crispy fried onion. The noodle cook up nice and fluffy with a decent chew as well. The flavor was really good – not in your face strong and not salty. Flecks of vegetable were here and there and were a very nice touch. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4713106500010.

#1286: Batchelors Super Noodles Roast Beef & Onion Flavour

Here’s one from the UK! Thanks to Joe B. and Sarah B. of Notthingham for sending these my way! Well, let’s check ’em out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 300ml boiling water. Add sachet contents and cook for 4 minutes or until water is absorbed. Enjoy!

The powder base.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Pepper and micro-thin sliced sukiyaki beef. The noodles are pretty good – they gorge themselves on the liquid and soak it up well, leaving them with a nice chew. Unfortunately, the broth is very bland. It does have a stew-like feel to it which is very mice. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 5000354404061>.

Nongshim Jinjja Jinjja For Lunch

Lunch (click to enlarge)!!!So I decided to have some of the Nongshim Jinjja Jinjja that they sent me a while back for lunch. I’ve reviewed it before – here’s the link. I added a slice of cheese, Crystal hot sauce, some Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake, an egg that I boiled with the noodles, some new odeng and onions. Oh – and of course kimchi! This is the first instant noodle that I devoured with the help of chopsticks! Yep – The Ramen Rater is going to be a chopstick eater! Funny; I wasn’t able to use them very well before but I tried them with kimbap, then some yakisoba I had at a restaurant and finally today and I’m stoked! Woot woot!

Here’s the info on the distributor’s sticker.

This is the coolest fork ever – you pull it apart and it clicks!

See? Rad!

#674: Paldo (Korea Yakult) Kko Kko Myun

Here’s something extra special, sent by Chris H. of Westport, CT. This is the extremely popular Kko Kko Myun. What I know is that this is made using chicken broth instead of spicy red peppers. It is based on a recipe created by Korean comedian Lee Kyung-kyu. It has an unusual white broth – everything for the most part coming out of Korea has that bright red chili-infused broth. In the first five months of this stuff being released in Korea, they sold 100 million packs! Very popular! So here we go with a review – this is from Korea and not a regular export so the packaging doesn’t have all of its info, but hopefully you can glean info from the nutrition facts, etc off of the label.

There’s a picture of Lee Kyung-kyu on the back. If anyone could translate all of this, I’d be happy to include it! Click image to enlarge.

The noodle block! Big and solid.

Within is contained the chicken broth based powder seasoning – I’m very curious!

Oh wow – I didn’t expect this. So yesterday, my wife had to go to the hospital and I had a lot of time to spend in the lobby waiting for her to come out safe and sound. Well, I got some snacks – one being a bag of Munchies – Jalapeno flavor. Well, the munchies have various snacks all put together like a mix, one of them being Jalapeno Cheese Cheetos. Guess what? This stuff smells exactly the same. I tasted a tiny speck of it and sure enough – exactly the same! This isn’t a negative by any means; I like Jalapeno Cheetos quite a bit! Just a bit of a surprise.

Here’s the vegetable packet.

A decent amount of veggies in there – looks like a nice amount of green onions too – which I like very much.

Click image to enlarge. Here’s the finished product in it’s unmodified state. First, the noodles – standard and of very good quality for Paldo’s products. The broth: light in color and spicy – Jalapeno spicy! It works very well and is very different from anything Korean that I’ve ever had. The veggies are perfect for the dish and of a good quality. I like this a lot and I can see why those in Korea are going crazy over it. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – excellent quality and flavor. UPC barcode 8801128509770 – get it here!

#370: Fuku Superior Soup Instant Noodle

Wow – Fuku! Pretty awesome name I think! My sister brought these back from Canada. Let’s try em’ out!

Pretty awesome instructions – I think they’re saying 1 – serve with live, happy jumping prawn, 2 – if you eat it without soup, you will start to hallucinate that music is an entity you can interact with like a meal, and 3 – hoard it and eat it raw like a caveman!  Maybe… At any rate, Fuku is an awesome name!

One single packet of flavoring powder.

Not a whole lot of powder, but had some onion in it I think.

Click image to enlarge. Wow – this stuff is impressive. I know exactly what it reminds me of and now I’m very happy to announce it’s getting 5.0 out of 5.0 stars! This stuff is EXACTLY like Nissin Chikin except it has a little extra powder with it! Originally, my favorite noodles were Nissin ‘Roasted Ramen,’ a product they came out with in the USA when I was a kid. They stopped making it so we hunted for it and they were able to help us out at Uwajimaya in Seattle where they clued my folks in about the Nissin Chikin. This is exactly like that stuff and I’m quite happy. Too bad it requires a trip to Canada to find it! Ack!!! So yeah The name, the back and the noodles and broth altogether are wham bam 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here.

First, watch this video commercial…

Then watch this – the making of!

#234: Myojo Udon Shrimp Flavor Japanese Style Noodles With Soup Base

So another one of these. They are hard to pass up at 69 cents each. Shrimp flavor is the game of the day.

A single packet of flavor.

Here it sits in the bowl.

Click image to enlarge. Today the noodles and broth are accompanied by some green onions! Tasty stuff. It was nice weather when I was on my way to the store, but on the way back [as often is the way of Washington state’s December weather] it was dumping rain. Sitting in some dry warm clothing, this is quite enjoyable. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars – very nice, chewy noodles, tasty broth and the green onions up it a notch. Find it here.

Re-Review: Indomie Special Quality Instant Noodles Mie Keriting Rasa Ayam Panggang Curly Noodles With Grilled Chicken Flavor

Okay this is a very special ramenrater review here – if asked what is my favorite meal that is of instant noodles, this would be it. I have been making it and variations on it for years now. Behold the fine Indonesian treat, Indomie’s Mie Keriting Rasa Ayam Panggang!!!

Five seasoning packets. Five. This is just awesome. Going clockwise from the top, the reddish packet is a hot and sweet chili sauce called Manis Pedas and next to it is a seasoned oil. Below, one packet is dehydrated vegetables and next to it is the powdered seasoning. Left and finally, we have a ‘seasoning soup,’ a packet added to some hot water and added at the very end.

Before I added the water, here is the veggies living on top of the noodles in the pot.

Clockwise from top: powdered seasoning, seasoned oil, Manis Pedas.


Once the noodles are drained, they are tossed in the bowl and stirred until everything’s blended nicely. Then…

Three fried eggs – so sue me it’s breakfast and I have a splitting headache. This will fix me right up!

Here’s the seasoning soup powder at the bottom of the Burger King Star Trek glass. I added around 1/3 of a cup of water and microwaved for a minute then stirred and added to the bowl. One thing too – I broke the egg yolks open and poured the soup directly over them – THIS IS IMPORTANT! This causes the little bit of broth to be even tastier and awesome!

Finally, I added a couple more things. In Indomie’s other offerings like their Mi Goreng Satay, there is a packet of fried onions to add. I found fried shallot a nice addition for this variety. They’re cheap and you get a ton of it. The Blazing pink stuff next to it is kizami shoga. Basically its pickled ginger that you would see in yakisoba. I like the little bit of cold crunchiness it adds and the light ginger bite.

I really like this (click image to enlarge). I cannot tell you how much I enjoy cooking it and turning people on to it – it’s simple, exotic and satisfying. Enjoy. A happy 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. Truly magnificent! Get it here.
