#2939: Tapatio Ramen Noodle Soup Original Flavor

Hey look at this! A Tapatio instant noodle! I’ve seen people douse their instant noodles in this stuff for years on Instagram. Here’s a little about it from Wikipedia –

Tapatío is a hot sauce, produced in Vernon, California, that can be found at many supermarkets, pharmacies, and liquor stores in the United States.

Tapatío” is the name given to people from Guadalajara, Jalisco: the company’s founders come from Guadalajara. It is exported to MexicoCanadaCentral AmericaAustralia, and elsewhere.

The ingredients, as listed on the product label, are water, red peppers, salt, spices, garlic, acetic acidxanthan gum and sodium benzoate as a preservative. Tapatío comes in five sizes: 5, 10, and 32 fluid ounces, and 1 gallon (3.785 liters), as well as in 7-gram packets. The sauce overall has a Scoville rating of 3,000, hotter than Sriracha.[1]

The product slogan is “Es una salsa … Muy salsa” (very saucy”).

The Tapatío Hot Sauce company was started in 1971 by Jose-Luis Saavedra, Sr., in a 750-square-foot (70 m2) warehouse in Maywood, California.[6] In 1985, the company moved to a 8,500-square-foot (790 m2) facility in Vernon, California, 5 miles (8.0 km) from Downtown Los Angeles. Although larger than the first location, the new factory had a single loading dock and limited storage space, which created a new series of problems for the company. After a long search, a site was found for a developer to custom-build a new 30,000-square-foot (2,800 m2) facility, which Tapatío presently occupies. The new factory has several loading docks and automated production.

Hey cool – let’s give this one a try!

I found the KOKA products on Instagram recently and thought hey – it’s the 15th anniversary of The Ramen Rater, I thought I should try and reach out and see if they’d like to do a Meet The Manufacturer. They did a while back – they were the first company to do one actually! Back then, I reviewed export versions available in the United States. This time around, they’re varieties sold in Singapore. I had the chance to interview the Marketing Team of Tat Hui Foods Pte. Ltd.

Interview With Tat Hui Foods Pte. Ltd. – Singapore

THE RAMEN RATER> Thank you for taking part in Meet The Manufacturer! To start the interview, can you tell me about the history and founding of Tat Hui?

TAT HUI> The founder of Tat Hui Foods Pte Ltd, Mr Lim Hi Lay laid the first foundations to
KOKA in 1985. He was eager to share the rich culture and unique character of
Singaporean cuisine with the rest of the world through his humble instant noodles. Our
products were first introduced to Asian grocery markets in the US, Europe, and Australia,
followed by mainstream market exposure in Europe and the Middle East.

TRR> What was the first product you manufactured?

TAT HUI> KOKA Original Instant Noodles. This is the range that continues to be the most popular amongst overseas markets.

TRR> Your headquarters are in Singapore. What is life like there?

TAT HUI> The air-conditioning is constantly on in our office, given the heat and humidity in
Singapore. In this office, you’ll find a considerable proportion of employees who’ve been with us throughout the years, the old guard if you will, working with new blood to
constantly keep up with the ever-changing needs of consumers today.

TRR> Can you tell us about the different varieties of noodles you make?

TAT HUI> We have six different ranges available: Original, Signature (No MSG), Delight (Nonfried, No MSG), Silk (Rice Noodles), Purple Wheat and Creamy Soup.

TRR> How many noodle products do you produce every year?

TAT HUI> On average, we produce around 320 million packs every year.

TRR> Do you make varieties suitable for Vegetarians? Vegans?

TAT HUI> Yes, we do have noodles suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans. If you’re interested in a particular flavor, just refer to the packaging or visit our website:
http://www.kokanoodles.com/ to confirm that it is appropriate for vegetarians/vegans.

TRR> Why the name Tat Hui?

TAT HUI> Tat Hui is derived from the company’s name in mandarin : 达辉 which can be translated as ‘to achieve brilliance’.

TRR> Why the name KOKA?

TAT HUI> KOKA is derived from our brand name in mandarin (可口, meaning delicious); it is a
play on the phonetic pronunciation in mandarin – which is pronounced something like
kuh-kouw.

TRR> Many of your products are non-fried. How are they produced then?

TAT HUI> Our non-fried noodles go through a steaming and baking process instead of the
conventional way of deep frying the noodle cakes. This enables us to provide consumers
with an alternative which is much lower in fat content.

TRR> What kind of noodles do you use in your products? What are the differences between
them?

TAT HUI> We have traditional instant noodles, wholegrain noodles, purple wheat noodles and rice noodles.

TRR> What are the benefits of the purple noodles you produce?

TAT HUI> In addition to being lower in fat, KOKA Purple Wheat Noodles provide 3 times more
antioxidants than red grapes. These antioxidants are known as anthocyanins, which is naturally present in purple grains.

TRR> How does your noodle making process differ from other instant noodle
manufacturers?

TAT HUI> The way we do our fried noodles is similar to other brands but we are using a different process when it comes to our fat-free noodles which has a softer and smoother texture. This in turn, will also reduce the cooking time for our consumers.

TRR> Is the purple noodle process different from other instant noodles you produce?

TAT HUI> Our Purple Wheat noodles are non-fried and steam-baked, just like our Delight range.

TRR> A lot of people are concerned with their sodium intake. How would you recommend
people enjoy your product and do you take this into consideration during production/R&D?

TAT HUI> Yes, we have to take this into consideration during R&D. If people want to restrict their
sodium intake, they can further reduce the amount of seasoning they add into the noodles
and we would encourage them to add more vegetables or fish for a well-balanced meal!

TRR> Does your company involve itself with local community or participate in charities?

TAT HUI> Yes, we do sponsor charities and various events every year, like overseas disaster relief, non-profit organizations such as Lions Clubs Singapore, various churches and the less fortunate in Singapore.

TRR> Are there any new products coming soon?

TAT HUI> We launched Koka Creamy Soup not long ago; it comes in 6 different flavours:
Mushroom, Chicken, Hot & Sour, Vegetable, Curry and Sweet Corn.

TRR> In what countries are your products popular? Do people enjoy them differently in
different places?

TAT HUI> Our products are popular in over 40 countries around the world, including Europe,
Middle East, Asia and Australia. We often have people emailing us to let us know how much they love our noodles! Yes, we do notice that everyone enjoys their noodles differently; People in Western countries like their noodles dry whereas in Asian countries, they enjoy their noodles either dry or with a full bowl of soup. We have shared some creative and tasty creations from fans around the world on our Facebook and Instagram as well. Do search for #KokaMoments 😉

TRR> When you make noodles for yourself, what do you like to add to them to make them
extra special (garnish, etc)?

TAT HUI> We asked around in the office and we got some really interesting answers for you!
Mun Hin – Vegetables (especially carrots) and a dash of pepper
Kat – All types of vegetables!
Nat – Vegetables, tofu and eggs
Ms Leow – Fresh vegetables and eggs
Feng Lan – Seafood (Especially with Tom Yum flavor instant noodles)
Sharon – IKEA meatballs and a braised egg

THE RAMEN RATER> Thank you for this opportunity for myself and my readers to learn more about Tat Hui and KOKA products!

#2438: World O’Noodle Mi Goreng Original Flavour Fried Noodles

 

#2438: World O'Noodle Mi Goreng Original Flavour Fried Noodles - Indonesia - The Ramen Rater - instant noodle

I found this one during my November 2016 trip to Taiwan. So this was at a Jason’s Market at the bottom of the Taipei 101. Mi Goreng is a very popular stir nodle dish. Mi Goreng instant noodles are most well known from Indonesia, indeed where this one is from. Let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about Mi Goreng –

Mie goreng (Indonesian: mie goreng or mi goreng; Malay: mee goreng or mi goreng; both meaning “fried noodles”[3]), also known as bakmi goreng, is a flavorful and spicy fried noodle dish common in Indonesia,[1]Malaysia, and Singapore. It is made with thin yellow noodles fried in cooking oil with garlic, onion or shallots, fried prawn, chicken, beef, or sliced bakso (meatballs), chili, Chinese cabbage, cabbages, tomatoes, egg, and other vegetables. Ubiquitous in Indonesia, it can be found everywhere in the country, sold by all food vendors from street-hawkers, warungs, to high-end restaurants. It is an Indonesian one-dish meal favorite, although street food hawkers commonly sell it together with nasi goreng (fried rice).[4] It is commonly available at Mamak stalls in Singapore and Malaysia and is often spicy.

Sounds good – I’ve been a fan of mi goreng for decades now! So let’s give this one a try.

Another one from Colin – thanks! In 2014, I visited Malaysia and found quite a few varieties of Cintan products at a grocery store called Econsave in Butterworth. I didn’t expect to get one from somebody who lives here and sourced here. However, I’m very curious what this original flavor is like. Moreover, what is original flavor? Perhaps their vegetable flavor? I guess we’ll see. Now, let’s check it out!

The broth is interesting, but not at the same time. I would call it chicken flavor since it is definitely more chicken-like. However, it is on the bland side. Finally, if you’re the type who is non-committal to anything involving choice, this is the flavor for you. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 025296932026.

Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: MAMA Instant Rice Vermicelli Bihun Goreng Perisa Asli

Today, we bid a fond farewell to the President Rice instant series with this Bihun Goreng. This product is probably self-explanatory to many, but I’ll give a little more to those who are unfamiliar. Mee goreng is a noodle that is boiled, drained and then seasoned and garnished. Bihun goreng is basically the same, however done with rice vermicelli. Let’s give it a try – and my thanks to President Rice Products for making this Meet The Manufacturer happen!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add vermicelli to a bowl and cover with boiling water. cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. stir and enjoy!

I gave it a few cuts with kitchen scissors to make it more manageable. The flavor is kind of a sweet, salty and spicy affair – just as bihun goreng should be! I really like this stuff a lot – a great change from a fried wheat noodle. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8851876000234.,

Meet The Manufacturer: #1990: Nissin Cup Noodle

I thought I should start things off with the original Nissin Cup Noodle. It’s funny; I’ve never reviewed one of these before (except the Emergency Nissin Cup Noodle from Momofuku Ando Day #4, which is a bit different). The story goes that Momofuku Ando noticed businessmen on flights would ask for cups of hot water instead of coffee. They would put pieces of Nissin chikin Ramen in these cups and eat it that way. He thought hey – why not ma.e instant ramen in a cup form. He did, and now it is a ubiquitous item throughout the world. As you’ll see during this Meet The Manufacturer, there are many, many different varieties of Cup Noodle made by Nissin – from the logical to the surprising and unique. Cup Noodle has it’s own museum as well! In Yokohama, Japan! Find out more about it here. Let’s crack open this one – the original Nissin Cup Noodle.

On the bottom of the cup is a little sticky strip. You can use this to hold the lid down during the cooking process.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 500ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Drain, but leave the noodles wet. Add in liquid and powder sachet contents and stir well. Garnish with chilli flake. Enjoy!
