#695: JFC Japanese Style Noodle Soup Curry Flavour

Here’s another one from Ramen Place. Japanese curry is always good – curious how this will pan out!

Here’s the side panels (click image to enlarge).

I gotta say, it’d be awesome to have a t-shirt with this one it – just an oval with ‘noodles’ inside…

This packet is seriously full!

Veggies…

Contents ready for hot water and a 2 1/2 minute spin in the microwave.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Wow this is awesome – the udon came out very nicely – chewy and wide-gauge. The soup (if you can call it that; it’s more of a gravy) is full of great sweet and slightly spicy Japanese curry flavor. The bits of veggie flake appear here and there but are almost inconsequential – the curry gravy is front and center here. I loved this – 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 01152194325  – get it here.

I like the Golden Curry stuff – lots of other eye catching brands and flavors as well!

#692: Samyang Savory Vegetable Flavor Assorted Vegetable Ramen

Here’s another one from Ramen Place! I’ve tried the cup version which just said 60 Ingredients, but it’s got to be the same thing here, just in a pack. Let’s give it a try!

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

Here’s the noodle block – a big one.

Powder seasoning pack.

Lots of angry reddish powder! Grrr!!!

Vegetable pack – good sized too!

Loads of nice looking veggies!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added some Bird’s Eye Stir Fry veggies, an egg which I boiled with the noodles, a little pinch of cheese and some Ajishima Kim Chi furikake! So starting with the noodles: chewy and very Korean. A slightly wider gauge than a regular instant noodle and a better quality noodle. The broth is great – a nice vegetable flavor and a good spiciness to it. The veggies were appropriately everywhere and re-hydrated nicely. I liked this one – and then I added all my stuff to it and it was even better! Good stuff – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 8801073110168 – get it here.

#690: Maruchan Yakisoba Savory Soy Sauce Flavor Homestyle Japanese Noodles

Here’s another one from Ramen Place! Thanks! I think this should be a tasty one – let’s see!

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

Here’s what you get after you take off the outer plastic (click image to enlarge).

Here’s what the noodle block looks like. Broad noodles.

The powder packet.

It gets stirred in after the cooking goes down.

Veggies! Quite a bit of them too!

Looking good!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added some Bird’s Eye Stir Fry veggies and a little roast turkey breast lunch meat on the  right. Also tossed in a little kizami shoga (pickled ginger) as well as some Ajishima Kim Chi Furikake. I like the noodles – they did really well for being a microwaved meal component. I added about a sixteenth of a cup of extra water and I think that may have been a good idea to avoid dryness. The sauce is excellent – a very mellow soy sauce kind of flavor. The supplied veggies are good – fresh tasting corn and cabbage going on. I really enjoyed this – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 041789007088 – get it here.

A Massive Donation From Ramen Place!

I got a comment from a place called Ramen Place asking me to check out their web store. Lots of things I’ve not seen before! So I sent an email off to www.ramenplace.com early this week asking if they’d be up for donating some varieties. I got a resounding and very nice yes! Here’s a big box that came from them – As you can see, it’s dwarfing Otis the Pug!

I’m really excited — what’s underneath the bubbles and paper?

Click image to enlarge. Thank you, Jennifer! I will definitely keep an eye on your website for new varieties! A very generous offer!

I think I’ve only reviewed one of these before and the one that I have reviewed would be a great re-review since it was so good! What’s this? A little box?

Oh wow this is so awesome – I’ve always wanted to get one of these!

How rad – he will just hang out and hold the lid down! Awesome! Thanks again to Jennifer at Ramen Place! Can’t wait to start reviewing these noodles! I recommend everyone have a look at the site!
