#1628: Azami Kimchee Flavour Noodle Soup

Here’s one I got from Justin M. from Winfield, BC up north of here in Canada! Thanks! Let’s see here: the instant noodle cup was invented in Japan. This one is sold in Canada under the name Azami and sold by Loblaw’s, a supermarket chain. It’s manufactured in China. The flavor is of kimchi, which is South Korean. Wow. I’ve got hopes that this will be a good one! Let’s check these Azami noodles.

Has a strong kimchi scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added spring onion and mung bean sprouts. The noodles were at the lowest end of the spectrum. The ended up crumbly and almost rubbery with no character or flavor whatsoever. The broth was also wasn’t to my liking; very bland in taste with at least some spiciness but other than that it was akin to spicy water. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 057197990263.

Noodles…

The solitary packet.

Hooray for curry! Smells good.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some onion and a little Daesang Gochujang. The noodles are pretty bad. The curry flavoring was pretty good in the broth, although it left me wanting more – much more. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 9555022301228 .

That looks like a long fall – kids, don’t try this at home

#302: Samyang Bowl Noodle Soup Yukgaejang Ramen Picante Beef Flavor

Well, I’d sworn I’d had this before but nope! That was the Nongshim stuff. Curious if this stuff is as good…

A single packet of powder…

A lovely deep red color – very nice to see!

Click image to enlarge. Added one fried egg and a pinch of Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning. So this stuff’s great – adding an egg makes it nice and tasty too. Decent heat, noodles are good and broth is red! Also, spied a couple little pieces of that spiral naruto stuff at the bottom of the bowl and they were good and fun to look at. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

#292: Paldo Korean Noodle U-Dong Flavor Noodles

Some more of these Paldo noodles. Let’s see how they taste and especially what I’m curious about – if these are thicker noodles.

Nice looking packets – nice to see lots of veggies and things going on.

Red powder and nice looking veggies!

Click image to enlarge. Two fried eggs and here we go. So not exactly as I imagined – which isn’t a complaint. The noodles are a little bigger than your average and much chewier. I like them. The broth is hot and spicy and tastes good, and the veggies are awesome. Altogether quite good! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars! Get it here.
