#1422: Nissin Pan Asian Kitchen Spicy Szechuan Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodles

Hey here are some noodle made here in the USA! Interesting – spicy Szechuan… I’m curious how spicy it will be. I’ve had many different takes on Szechuan before – I’m hoping this one is good as usually I don’t tend to like Szechuan variants so much. Actually, I like the ones like this usually more than the ones actually made in China! Let’s see how this one comes out.

The bottom of the tray (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, remove outer wrap and open lid halfway. Take out all sachets. Add peanut and premium ingredient sachets. Add water to fill line and re-cover. Microwave 5 minutes and let sit for 1 minute. Add liquid sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!

Here’s how the lid looks under the wraps (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

A sachet of peanuts.

Little bits.

The premium ingredients sachet.

An interesting mix here – looks like corn peas and bell pepper in there.

A liquid sachet.

A thick and oily liquid.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, red and green bell pepper and chicken I sauteed. The noodles are great – it’s amazing how well they come out in the microwave. The flavor however isn’t really my cup of tea. It reminds me of the flavor you get in microwaveable TV dinners – the low calorie ones – when they’re trying to do an Asian chicken of some type. It is like they’re shooting for teriyaki, but end up with this spicy, citrus Szechuan thing. The veggies did well though and the peanuts were a nice touch. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 070662487273.

This is a demo reel showing off Nissin products. I’m imagining it was played at a trade show, most likely in Hong Kong, as these products look to be part of the Nissin Hong Kong line.

#1115: Nissin Pan Asian Kitchen Sukiyaki Beef Flavor Savory Soy Sauce Ramen Noodles

Here’s another one sent by Scott over at Nissin USA – thanks! Some may be wondering what sukiyaki is – here’s what Wikipedia had to say:

Sukiyaki (鋤焼?, or more commonly すき焼き) is a Japanese dish, of the soup or stew type, prepared and served in the nabemono (Japanese hot pot) style.

It consists of meat (usually thinly sliced beef) which is slowly cooked or simmered at the table, alongside vegetables and other ingredients, in a shallow iron pot in a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin. Before being eaten, the ingredients are usually dipped in a small bowl of raw, beaten eggs.

Curious how this one will be – let’s check it out!

Here’s the bottom of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains wheat, soybean, egg and milk.

Under the wraps, this is what you see on top (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The solid ingredients packet.

An interesting melange of bits.

The liquid seasoning packet.

Has a nice teriyaki-esque scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, broccoli, red bell pepper and Vidalia sweet onions sauteed with a little Worcestershire sauce. The noodles are good – a slight crumble which works well. The flavor is interesting; it is quite sweet with notes of soy sauce throughout. The veggies and other bits hydrated well and give a nice little added texture. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

#990: Nissin Pan Asian Kitchen Spicy Pad Thai Flavor Ramen Noodles

Found this one while strolling through our new Walmart Neighborhood Market just north of here. It’s kind of like you take a Walmart, make it a Super Walmart and then ditch the Walmart part so it’s just groceries. Found this is the Asian foods section and not with the Top Ramen and Cup Noodle. Kind of weird.

Here’s the bottom of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

Here’s the lid.

The noodle block.

The seasoning packet.

Interesting – lots of stuff going on here!

Liquid seasoning packet.

Looks like an oil. Has a coffee-esque scent.

Garnish packet.

Some bits of nuts to put on top!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, green bell pepper, broccoli and shrimp. The noodles are really good here – lots of them and they’re broad. The flavoring is interesting; it’s spicy, a little sweet and then a little off. I thought the peanut flavor wasn’t as expected. The scent of the oil as coffee was actually supposed to be peanut. The sprinkle of nuts on top was a nice littler touch. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 070662487266.

Here’s a recipe to make homemade Pad Thai.
