Re-Review: Indomie Mi Instan Rasa Mi Cakalang

2012_11_8_rr2_002

Finished (click to enlarge). I added some sweet onion, a fried egg with some Krazy Mixed Up Salt and Dua Belibis chili sauce. This stuff packs from heat! The noodles are your standard Indomie – nice texture and spring. The broth is spicy and has a nice tuna flavor along. There was a packet of garnish, which was dried tuna bits and was quite tasty. I like this a lot! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 08968604302 .

This is about Indonesian musical intruments – very cool!

Re-Review: Nongshim Jinjja Jinjja (Really Really) Ramyun

You’re probably wonder ‘gee, he sure reviews that Jinjja Jinjja quite a lot – what gives?’ Well, they sent me a lot of it and since I really like it, I want to enjoy it before it expires. Well, actually it expired in September, but I’m just about out of it. Here’s the last full review of it.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a slice of processed cheese, a little peanut butter, kimchi and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. Peanut butter – good stuff! Still calling it a 5.0 – great stuff! UPC bar code 8801043017916.

Re- Review: emart Ramen e Ramen White Broth Noodle Soup

I reviewed this one a little while back – was review #787. Use this link to see everything about it. By the way, emart has informed me that they have a new product that just launched – should be here soon! Can’t wait to review it!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sweet onion, green beans, processed cheese, odeng, kimchi and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. Still as good as I remember – good noodles, great spiciness and good mussel and veggies. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – delicious! UPC bar code 8801045525068 – get it here.

Wow this is really awesome and inventive!

Here’s a guy’s tour of emart. I thought it was kind of funny how he complained that they didn’t have enough American food. I guess that’s what happens when you’re in a foreign country! Man, I would love to check this place out – looks amazingly fun!

#894: Han’s Korea Rice Noodle With Kimchi Flavored Soup

Here’s another one we picked up over at KS Mart in Lynnwood, WA the other day on our regular kimchi supply run. How fitting – kimchi noodle! Let’s hit it!

Here’s a close-up of all the writing on the label (click to enlarge).

The noodles are like a springy accordion – I almost want to take them and see how far they would stretch, but that wouldn’t be right.

The seasoning packet.

Lots of bits of stuff going on in there hmmm.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added kimchi, some baked chicken and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles are plentiful and that’s great, but they were very hard to break when pursing the lips. They reminded me of a kind of rice version of bean thread.  The broth is nice – has a good kimchi flavor and not too salty. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8809037615070 .

#893: Paldo Bowl Noodle Soup Shrimp Flavor

I’d thought I’d had everyone’s bowl noodles by now but lo and behold, a shrimp flavor by Paldo. So let’s give it a try!

Detail from the lid.

The noodle block.

Seasoning powder packet.

Lots of seasoning powder!

Here’s the veggies in the bottom of the bowl.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a two egg omelette, odeng, green bell pepper, yellow onion, broccoli, Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt – and a slice of processed cheese. The noodles aren’t bad – a slight bitt spongy. The broth has a seafood taste – a shrimp flavor is in there. Not overly salty either and a hint of spiciness. The veggies are okay and the little shrimp bits are great! A good lunch although wuold’ve like a little more from this bowl. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 648436100019 – get it here.

#892: ABC Selera Pedas Mi Rebus Hot Tomato Soup Flavour

Here’s one of the last couple packs that my friend from Jakarta, Indonesia sent. ABC is well known for their sweet soy sauce. This looks really interesting though – spicy and tomato! Let’s try it.

Back of the package (click to enlarge).

Here’s one of the pieces of the noodles – this pack didn’t do so well in the mail.

Here’s the powder seasonings: powder on the left and chili powder on the right.

Powder seasoning with chili powder atop.

Seasoned oil.

Has a nice scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added yellow onion, broccoli, green bell pepper, two fried eggs with Krazy Mixed Up Salt, some baked chicken with Soul Seasoning and some Dua Belibis chili sauce. The noodles are pretty good – they went well with the broth. The broth is indeed spicy and has a great tomato flavor. The spiciness goes with it in such a natural and tasty way that it seemed to me that somewhere I should be able to find a spicy tomato plant. Really excellent – 4.5 out of 5.0 stars!UPC bar code 8992388111145 .

#891: Vina Acecook Hao Hao Mushroom Flavour Instant Noodles

More mushroom noodles. They certainly looks nice from the pictures on the package – hao hao about we give ’em a try? Ugh…

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

The noodle block.

Powder seasoning.

Bits’n’pieces in there, too.

Oil packet.

Looks like vegetable oil.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added yellow onions, broccoli, green bell pepper and Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles aren’t too bad – pretty standard Hao Hao kinda stuff. The broth is light and mas a mushroom flavor. This is pretty basic – nothing fancy; if you want something with a mushroom taste, I think this will work for you. I found it kind of lackluster – I really like Vina Acecook’s products usually, but this one was very meh. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8934563106164 .

#890: Unif / Tung-I Mushroom Flavor Ramen Noodles

So today I have two mushroom flavored instant noodles I’ll be doing. First off will be this Unif/Tung-I mushroom pack. What’s interesting about this one is that Unif Tung-I is usually from Taiwan, but this one’s from Vietnam. Anyways, let’s try this one and see how it is.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Notice all of the German on here!

The noodle block.

Dry seasonings.

Powder as well as veggies!

The seasoned oil packet.

Looks interesting.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some baked chicken, yellow onion, green onion, Krazy Mixed Up Salt and Ajishima Kimchi furikake. The noodles are thin and have an almost buttery taste. The broth has a mushroom taste but its not overwhelming; almost like sauteed mushrooms. Pretty good – 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 073217060068 – get it here.

Thanks Beth – great submissions! Hope to see more noodle pictures soon from everyone!

Meet The Manufacturer #889: Yamachan Ramen Rich Shoyu Ramen

This is the last of the samples I got from Yamachan Ramen! Must admit I’m sad to see them go! Very tasty fare and it’s been a lot of fun! This one’s shoyu. Let’s give it a try.

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

Here are the bags of fresh ramen noodles.

The soup base.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added broccoli, yellow onion, green bell pepper, turkey breast, hard boiled egg, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), green onions and Ajishima Kimchi furikake. The noodles are nice – chewy and fresh. The broth is pretty good – has a strong soy taste but also a bitterness and a sweetness – as lot going on there. Good stuff! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 767921011101 .

Meet The Manufacturer #888: Yamachan Ramen Nagasaki Sara Udon Chicken Flavor

Here’s something different. Sara Udon means plate noodles – what you have is a crispy noodle that is thin. You put them on the plate and crush gently, then add the sauce and during the meal, the noodles go from crisp to soft. It’s a texture sensation! Well, let’s check it out!

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

Here are the noodles. Like big nests of thin noodles.

Here are the packets of liquid seasoning.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added yellow onion, broccoli, green bell pepper, chicken, green onion and Ajishima Kimchi furikake. The noodles are of a very interesting nature; when they don’t have sauce on them, they are crunchy. When they do, they absorb the liquid and become increasingly soggy – in a good way! The sauce is a slightly thick lightly chicken flavored concoction. The flavor is very nice – definitely not too salty at all and really tasty. This is a uniquely Japanese dish that evolves as you eat it – from crisp to soft noodle texture. Loved this one – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 767921016809 .

This guy looks pretty happy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added broccoli and yellow onions, green onions, some pork with Spade L Ranch Pork Rub, bamboo shouts, hard boiled egg with Krazy Mixed Up Salt and a little Ajishima Kimchi Furikake. The noodles are really good as usual – nicely chewy and really fresh. The broth has a complex flavor – a strong soy taste. Has a sort of bitterness and a sweet taste as well. Lovely color too. This is some tasty stuff! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 767921011309 .
