#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.

#783: Nissin Cup Noodles Salsa Picante Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

This one was taking a little punishment in the noodle hamper, so I decided it better see the light of day and become ingested.

Here’s the info from the outer packaging (click image to enlarge).

The lid.

Everything is in the cup – no packets or anything.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a little chicken lunch meat and a couple slices of Fresno pepper. Noodles were pretty standard ‘nothing to write home about,’ but they are rather historic fare. The broth has tones of cumin and chili powder. Not bad. The veggies were okay – marginal at best. All in all, not too shabby. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662031032 – get it here.

Here you go – enjoy this if you have to.

I still think Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s better, but this has some promise on the J-Pop scene.

#717: Nissin Ramen Bowl Spicy Chicken Flavor

Here’s another one of the samples Nissin Foods USA were kind enough to send me. Thanks! Spicy chicken today huh? sounds good to me.

Here’s the info on the side of the bowl (click image to enlarge)…

Details from the top as well (click image to enlarge).

The round block of noodles.

Powder seasoning.

A good amount of this stuff.

A good sized packet of vegetables.

Looks like a nice little crowd of small veggies.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added an egg that I fried in a star-shaped cookie cutter (my second attempt to date), added some Huy Fong Sriracha hot sauce and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt on top of everything and also added some store brand stir fry veggies and turkey breast. The noodles are pretty good – exactly;y what you’d expect in a bowl like this. What I like is the flavor has a nice vegetable taste to it – don’t know that I detect a lot of chicken flavor but it’s got a lot of heat (on a scale of 1 to 10 I’d give it a 7 or 8 as far as heat goes) and the veggies which hydrated pretty well. All in all, not bad. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.
