#430: Quickchow Pancit Canton Toyo-Mansi

Toyo Mansi huh? Well, I’m pretty sure that mansi is lime, but toyo? Well, Wikipedia had the answer:

Toyo’t Kalamansi (sometimes referred to simply as toyomansi) – soy sauce with kalamansi lime juice

Even better, I found it on this page of Philippine condiments! Pretty cool!

Dry powder, soy sauce and seasoned oil. I imagine the soy sauce has the lime infused in it.

There they wait the drained cooked noodles.

Very much like Indomie’s Mi Goreng line. I like the noodles and the flavor and everything. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – delicious!

#429: Quickchow Instant Chicken Mami Chicken Flavor

So here’s some Quickchow from the Philippines. Mami just means noodle soup as far as I know. I like the little ‘Buy Pinoy’ logo on the lower right!

One shiny silver packet of powder seasoning.

Almost fluffy, isn’t it?

They make it a heartier meal. The broth is very nice – very much a chicken flavor. The turkey and egg went nicely with it to make it a really tasty breakfast. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

Nothing says Merry Xmas like a 29 cent package of noodles!

#397: Quickchow Quickie Cup Mami La Paz Batchoy

Something new – a cup noodle from the Philippines!

Two packets – dry seasoning on the left and a seasoned oil on the right.

The dry seasoning was kinda clumpy but that’s normal. The noodles had a neat look to them I don’t usually see.

Click image to enlarge. Finished product. The broth was interesting; like a chicken soup broth but only pork. The noodles were also like what you’d expect in a can of chicken soup, only this is a pork flavor. Not bad. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.
