#3345: Peyoung Phakchi Lemon Ramen – Japan

#3345: Peyoung Phakchi Lemon Ramen - Japan

Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one -“Pakuchi is what we call cilantro/coriander in Japan. This ramen features pakuchi and lemon together. Wonder how it tastes? Chances are you will be addicted to this! Pakuchi is widely used in the world, but it was not so popular in Japan until around 2015. It became popular since then and has spread to the young and old, especially among women. Big pakuchi fans are called Pakuchisto in Japan. The pakuchi mixed with the lemon peel’s bitterness creates this unique and delicious taste.”

I like coriander… When I took the Ancestry DNA test it said a trait of mine was that I thought it smelled like soap. I never thought so until it said that and now I smell and taste soap often when I used it in dishes. I’m a little annoyed by that. But I still like it.

The noodle block.

A wet sachet of soup base.

A dry sachet of dehydrated coriander.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken, coriander, lemon slices, chili oil, and sesame seeds. Noodles are thin with a slight rigidity and crumble which was almost reminiscent of Thai varieties – almost. The broth was neat – oiliness and a strong lemon flavor abound. Coriander flavor was a little muted by the lemon, but easily detectable. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902885005384.

I figured I needed something scary for this pairing of Halloween varieties and so here’s something scary. I have no clue how truly spicy this one might be. I’m hoping it’s not going to kill my gut. This will have not only the cooking video at the bottom but the mukbang where I scarf the whole thing down if I can. Well, let’s see if I can handle it.

Detail of the outer wraps (click to enlarge). Contains meat. T oprepare, add boiling water to fill line along with clear sachet contents. Cover and let steep 3 minutes. Drain. Add in liquid sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A wet sachet.

A dry sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added plastic eyeballs. The noodles are thin with a bit of a crumble. Not my favorite. The sauce was definitely an extract heat and left me feeling like they just went for that to the exclusion of much else. Highly disappointing flavor-wise. The heat level was decently intense, but nothing the seasoned hothead can’t handle. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902885005247.

#3000: Peyoung Yakisoba GIGAMAX – Japan

I want to start by thank you for having a look at this. 3000. It’s a pretty big number. I would never have achieved it without the help and support of my family- my mother who introduced me to the instant noodle at an early age, my father who introduced me to the world of Asian cuisine, my sister for supporting all of my niche ventures whether they be instant noodles or hot sauces or even robot skinning, my children for trying all these different flavors I’ve foisted upon them over the years. Most of all, I want to thank my wife Kit who has stood by me through thick and thin, been a sounding board for my ideas, waited patiently as I inspect every aspect of the noodle aisle at an Asian grocery, and stood by me through it all. I love you all.

Well, today’s the day. It’s kind of funny – this is probably the largest instant noodle I’ve ever reviewed, exclaiming the massive size in it’s name and then the calories below in huge text as well. I originally thought wow – how could anyone eat something this enormous?? I probably could, but I like yakisoba – but I don’t like feeling how I would probably feel after pounding this huge tray. Not only that, I thought that it would be more fitting to prepare it and share it with family. There’s definitely more than enough here for everyone to get a taste!

Here’s a video including an interview with my mother, Barbara Lienesch, interview with my family and cooking this monstrosity up in a special Instant Noodle Recipe Time episode!

Detail of the outer wraps (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat. Check for yourself. To prepare, add in solid ingredients sachet and fill to line with boiling water (1300ml!). Cover for 3 minutes. Drain. Add in liquid base sachet and stir. Add smaller dry seasonings sachet. Finally, stir and enjoy!

This is an enormous noodle block. I’m going to guess that it equals about four times the noodles contained in a single tray of Peyoung yakisoba.

A huge sachet of yakisoba sauce.

#3000: Peyoung Yakisoba GIGAMAX - Japan

The solid ingredients sachet – mostly cabbage.

#3000: Peyoung Yakisoba GIGAMAX - Japan

A large sachet of what I think to be white pepper on the left and a togarashi on the right.

Here’s everything in a skillet after doling it up (click to enlarge).

Finished (click to enlarge). Added white onion, mung bean sprouts, cabbage, chicken, spring onion and mayonnaise. I’ve sampled this variety in a multitude of forms over the years – and this is just a huge version of it. It was so large that it was a dinner for myself, my wife, my mother, my sister, and my son Andy. The noodles are great – nice quality and chew. The flavor is definitely a sweet and salty one – but it doesn’t have that tangy bite that yakisoba usually has that I missed. That being said, it is still quite good – the included garnish and included cabbage worked well. Was a nice dinner for all. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902885005001.

Hey look at this! This is most definitely the largest yakisoba I’ve seen to date!  This came by way of Hobby Link Japan, a great site that has all sorts of amazing Japanese things including instant noodles! Thank you very much! Here’s what they had to say about this unique variety on their website –

Can’t decide what kind of yakisoba you want? We’ve got you covered with this two-in-one set of instant noodles! You’ll need to split the 820ml of hot water required between both containers — which are kept separate so you can enjoy each flavor on its own.

Peyoung’s Cho-Omori style Yakisoba is packed with double the noodles and double the sauce! The Gekikara variety packs a super spicy punch in a regular half-size serving. Cooks in just 3 minutes!

Unfortunately, the site mentions that this one has been discontinued so you’ll have to go get the regular and spicy versions separately. But let’s have a look!

The second sachet – the spicy yakisoba sauce.

ぺヤングやきそば #2879: Peyoung Cho-Omori Yakisoba Half & Half Gekikara

Another large amount of sauce.

Finished (click to enlarge). Spicy is top right. standard lower left. Spicy: added spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Noodles have a good gauge and nice chew to them. Flavor wasn’t really my favorite – the spiciness lent itself more to a bitterness which was just not enjoyable. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. Standard: Added spring onion and Kewpie mayonnaise. The gauge of the noodle is again very good as is the chewiness. The flavor is a sweet and tasty yakisoba which I enjoyed quite a bit. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. 3.0 + 4.5 / 2 = 3.75 out of 5.0 stars overall.  JAN bar code 4902885003465.
