#1015: Tradition Oriental Style Ramen Noodle Soup

It’s amazing; can go to a supermarket nearby and find something new! This one’s a Kosher instant from Tradition. It also looks to be vegetarian. I was asked if I could mention if an instant contained meat products or not, so I think I’ll be doing that.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Appears to not contain meat.

The noodle block.

TThe seasoning packet.

Has a slightly sweet and salty soy taste.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added broccoli, sweet onion and green bell pepper. The noodles are pretty good – nothing remarkable though. The broth was kind of bland. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 735375118073 – get it here.

Re-Review: Sapporo Ichiban Japanese Style Noodles & Original Flavored Soup

We went to Walmart on Black Friday! Well, let me explain – it was at 6pm or so, so the amount of crazy people was lower. It seems though that the Walmart we always go to has a surplus of crazy people usually. I imagine the early morning Black Friday folks would’ve been a scary lot. One thing I noticed was that they hadn’t bought all of the noodles, so I thought I’d get a couple to re-review. Here’s one of them last time I tried it, it was revirew #207. Hoping some new things to review come soon – only have one in the hamper that’s needing review… Re-reviews are fun though since they’re not been visited in so long.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block. Decently sized with a little more weight than I usually find in domestic packs. The noodles when sampled uncooked are a little different too – pretty good.

The lone seasoning packet.

The seasoning powder. Kind of has a soy flavor to it; I would think this one’s a soy sauce noodle perhaps?

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added stir fry veggies, hard boiled egg with Cavender’s Greek Seasoning, Thanksgiving turkey (the very last bits of it) and some Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are good – large amoung and decent gauge. The broth is good too – strong soy and salt flavor. Good stuff! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 076186000011 – get it here!

Looks like Sapporo Ichiban Shio Ramen has been around for a while – glad they finally brought it to the US!

#419: Myojo Ramen-Desse-Shio Japanese Style Soup Noodles Oriental Flavor

So here’s another of these great Myojo bowls – hopefully I like this one too!

Two packets – a lot of powder and some kind of oil…

The oil was some kind of soy and sesame combo. Lots of powder!

Click image to enlarge. Finished product. The broth is salty and has a strong taste of sesame oil. The noodles are very thin. They are very good – quite chewy and of excellent character. I could eat this stuff for days. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars! Get it here.
