I’m really excited about this series – and the fact that I’m getting some help from a local business. Jonathan over at Waroeng Jajanan. The store and restaurant combo is just an amazing place to check out authentic Indonesian cuisine, and you’ll be seeing a lot of (pretty much all) that I add in the end being from there in this series. Alright – let’s check out this one from Mikka as part of Meet The Manufacturer!

Meet The Manufacturer: #2556: Mikka Noodle Snack Roasted Corn Flavour

Whenever I see the word ‘corn’ on anything Southeast Asia, I always think of when I was at the airport in Penang, Malaysia. There was a little snack stall in there and it mentioned ‘corn in a cup.’ I thought this was the most fantastic thing; what could that possibly be? Our host looked at me like I was high and said plainly ‘it’s corn – in a cup.’

That was one of the embarrassing moments in Malaysia I had. The one I remember most glaringly was while we drove around Penang, he had the radio on all the time playing popular music. Well, I figured it was all Malaysian, maybe some European music thrown in.

A song played a lot. It was so damn catchy – I almost wanted to sing along with it. I remember how I thought that the lyrics must have been referencing something foreign; really I did. I asked ‘who is this? This is rad’ and got the worst answer.

‘Taylor Swift.’

See, the things I do for my readers – I admit to being lulled into the complacency of logic by a poppy Taylor Swift tune while in an exotic land. So let’s leave that in Malaysia and head for Indonesia and try some corn noodle snacks. By the way, don’t tell anyone about the Taylor Swift thing, aight?

I’m really excited about this series – and the fact that I’m getting some help from a local business.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sweetcorn and BonCabe original seasoning (supplied by Waroeng Jajanan). Noodles are in small pieces – sort of ‘bite-size’ with most of them loose and some little clumps which work well. They have a definite corn flavor – not like a corn chip, but like sweet corn – and it’s quite nice. For a snack, I give these 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 034126885357.

#2530: Ottogi Ppushu Ppushu Honey Butter Flavor

#2530: Ottogi Ppushu Ppushu Honey Butter Flavor - South Korea - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles snack

What have we today? This is a popular South Korean snack noodle – Ppushu Ppushu – and an interesting new flavor. Ppushu Ppushu means… I don’t know what it means, but it’s pretty neat stuff. Let’s check it out – right now!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, set the package on a hard flat surface. Punch it a few times to break up the noodle block. Open the package carefully, take out sachet and add in contents. Fold closed and shake. Finally, open and eat as a snack!

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles have an excellent crunchiness. They aren’t ‘bust your teeth’ crunchy either so that’s nice. The flavor is a really odd one; a kind of weird artificial honey taste. I like it, yet I don’t. It’s hard to explain; I take a bite and then feel slightly disgruntled, then perplexed, then inquisitive. Hence, another bite. Same thing. Unfortunately I don’t get a ‘hey I really like this’ feeling. For a snack, I give this one 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801045560458.

#2474: Ottogi Ppushu Ppushu Noodle Snack Chilli Cheese Flavor

#2474: Ottogi Ppushu Ppushu Noodle Snack Chilli Cheese Flavor - South Korea - The Ramen Rater - instant noodle snack

Last moth I was looking for a specific variety at a local Korean grocery called Boo Han Market in Edmonds, Washington. Much to my chagrin, they have changed their instant noodle section! It used to be way in the back and kind of lackluster. Now it’s right up front and they’ve got an even better selection than before. That’s where I found this interesting instant noodle snack.

First, chilli cheese crunchy instant noodles sounds pretty good – but coming from South Korea? Hey – why not. What I find actually quite odd is how our little Mexican friend above looks as though he has an angry look on his face while he wields the pepper issuing from his crotch. It reminds me of an album cover – well, I’ll just show you.

See what I mean? Shaft’s got his whacking stick at the ready. I tell you what though – this is a pretty badass album. In fact, I’ll see if I can find it on YouTube and slap it in at the bottom. Perhaps the movie – it’s a good movie too. Anyways, let’s check out this South Korean chilli cheese flavor instant noodle snack!

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodle chunks are nice and crunchy and very snackable. Indeed, they aren’t too hard that they’ll break your teeth by any means. The taste is a spicy chilli cheese – certainly that pepper he’s angrily wielding is a sign he means business. Pretty good stuff. For an instant noodle snack, I’ll give this one 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.

#2472: Wei Lih GGE Noodle Snack Wheat Crackers Seaweed Flavor

#2472: Wei Lih GGE Wheat Crackers Seaweed Flavor - Taiwan - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Okay so first off, what’s GGE? Well, it stands for Good Good Eat. I’ve reviewed other varieties that were simnply called ‘Everybody Loves Good Good Eat.’ The little girl with the big hair is usually on the packaging (I think she’s the mascot) and usually has a somewhat happy expression, although I have seen her looking wistful or depressed at times.

I saw seaweed flavored everything on my trip to Taiwan. A lot of people would say ‘that makes sense – a lot of fishing, Asian people, you know.’ Well, I grew up on an island where fishing and seafood were king. What’s more, there’s an island across from Anacortes called Guemes island. A decade or two back a big brouhaha was made over a company that was going to bring seaweed farming to the north side of Guemest.

Surprisingly, people had a fit. I remember slogans like ‘wrap your sushi in lettuce’ started going around. Silliness. People get angry over things so easily – esdpecially things they don’t understand. Indeed, these stunk of racial overtones I find to be very ugly. Don’t know if they ever ended up having seaweed farming in the area, but one thing’s for sure – there’s a lot of seaweed and kelp around there. Anyways – let’s check out this instant noodle snack from Taiwan!

Here is a trifecta of the snacks. Indeed, they are small, cylindrical bite-size pieces.

#2472: Wei Lih GGE Wheat Crackers Seaweed Flavor - Taiwan - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Finished (click to enlarge). First off, these have a very nice crunch to them without being hard. They’re crispy and very ‘poppable’ due to their size. As for the flavor, they are salty with a seaweed taste and a little sweetness as well. If you like seaweed and crunchy stuff, this should be up your alley. For a snack, I’ll give this 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 074410732004.

#2421: Uni-President Baseball Snack Noodle

#2421: Uni-President Baseball Snack Noodle - Taiwan - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Here’s one I picked up at 7-Eleven in Taipei, Taiwan in November of 2016. So snack noodles are popular in Taiwan – very popular! They eat them kind of like westerners eat potato chips (I should note that chips are also popular in Taiwan as well).

Also popular is baseball. I’m a San Francisco Giants fan. You might ask ‘but hey, you live in Washington – why aren’t you a Seattle Mariners fan?’ Well, I used to be. For years. But they never got anywhere or did anything. When I met my wife, I found out she’s a San Francisco Giants fan. I hadn’t followed baseball in a couple years so thought hey I’ll check them out. I found they’re pretty awesome and in that first year of following them, they won the World Series. Two years later they did it again, and two years after that as well. So yeah – I’m a convert! What’s kind of sad around here is that all people seem to care about is the Seattle Seahawks. It’s pretty insane; they’ve got to be making a ton of money on the licensing of official gear – everything is plastered in the crap. I hate football, so it’s annoying. Opening day is coming soon, thank god. Let’s check out this instant snack noodle from Uni-President of Taiwan!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added some Chex Mix and cashews (both of which I saw in Taiwan by the way). The noodles have a nice crunch to them – not too hard at all, but light and brittle. You’re not going to break your teeth on these. The flavor is a kind of salty and peppery taste. It’s great stuff. For a snack noodle, I’m giving it 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710088410214.

#2330: Ve Wong Little Prince(ss) Brand Snack Noodles Artificial Mexican Pizza Flavor

#2330: Ve Wong Little Prince(ss) Brand Snack Noodles Artificial Mexican Pizza Flavor - Taiwan - The Ramen Rater - noodle snack

As I’ve said in the past, I’m usually about 50 or so reviews ahead of myself. Well, today is the actual day our daughter Miriam will be born and by the time this comes out she’ll be close to two months old. Wow! It’s early in the morning – although it’s just a few hours away. Really excited! This one seemed interesting enough for a day of birth – Mexican pizza from Taiwan? I think a fiesta is in order; although I wish these were called Little Princess – but hey look at the title I think that works at least a little! Let’s check it out!

Update – Actually, she was two months old 2 days ago! I’ve added a few pictures from the day she was born in with this one. She’s really small – she was 6lbs 1oz. It’s funny; Miles is a big kid and 18 months old and took him ages to be able to balance and hold his huge noggin up which Miri was able to just after a few weeks.

Around 7am, the in-laws showed up and everybody piled in the car. Andy and Miles went over the their Aunt’s while we proceeded to the hospital. It was a cold morning and it was snowing – about as lightly snowing as possible, but snowing nonetheless.

We were scheduled for 1030am and by 11am we were holding our new little baby Miriam. Like I said she’s tiny – two months after being born, she’s still wearing newborn clothes. She likes to be held constantly which I’m okay with – she’s pretty darn cute.

But she’s happy (when fed) and healthy. I pout the video at the bottom of when she was born. Oh yeah – so I stayed in the hospital with Kit and Miri of course after she was born. The second day after getting a visit from Kit’s folks and Andy and Miles, I started feeling funny. Turns out the Norovirus has been going around and I’m in a hospital – the best place to catch something like that. Barfing and everything else you can imagine. Got a lift home and was quarantined for the next 48 hours.

Unfortunately, Kit’s mom and dad and folks at her aunt’s house got it too – evil stuff! But yeah I had to stay away from everybody for 2 whole days. Pretty boring hanging out in the bedroom for that long. I watched all three Smokey And The Bandit movies. Anyways, it lasted about 24 hours and went away. Well, let’s get started with this review!

Here’s one I got at the 99 Ranch down in Pleasanton, California a couple of weeks ago. So the GGE stands for Good Good Eat, as in ‘everybody loves good good eat.’ Yeah, I know – kind of weird. But hey – this is a Taiwanese snack noodle and they can be pretty interesting (see Leisure Meatballs). Anyways, let’s crack this bag open and look inside.

Well, this is popular elsewhere as well! Let’s check out my favorite instant noodle snacks from over 1,900 reviews. Enjoy!

#10: Wei Lih What’s That? Leisure Meatballs Spicy Chicken Flavor – Taiwan

They’re crunchy and light. They have a slight sweetness and a spiciness that is very slight but builds the more you eat. Original review

#9: Mamee Monster Snek Mi Perisa Ayam – Malaysia

2016_1_16_tts_003

The noodles are nice and crunchy. They have that lightness you would expect from an uncooked instant noodle, but not really oily as some can be. The flavoring is light and has a salty and almost sesame oil kind of flavor to it. Original review

#8: A-Sha Prince Katsu Snack Noodles – Taiwan

They’re very light and crunchy and have a nice salty and crunchy appeal to them. There’s a bit of a sweet and garlic or onion kind of thing going on as well as a hint of spiciness. Original review

#7: J.J. Snek Mi Perisa BBQ – Malaysia

The noodles are crunchy and have a nice flavor to them – very much reminding me of fried chicken from a well known restaurant chain. These were very good! Original review

#6: Samyang Foods Star Popeye Ramyun Snack – South Korea

It’s very crunchy and the noodles have a very light cinnamon note to them. The sugaryness of the rock candy brings this out in a nice way. Original review

#5: Mama Rangers Snack Noodles Shrimp Tom Yum Flavour – Myanmar

The snack noodle pieces are very short. The have a nice crunch to them. The flavor is that of a sweet tom yum, with a hint of spiciness, an unmistakable hit of lemongrass, and definitely tastes like sugary tom yum. It’s a nice flavor and was enjoyable. Original review

#4: Oyatsu Baby Star Snack Noodle Yakisoba Flavor – Japan

These short lengths of noodle are great. They’re light and crunchy. The flavor is that of yakisoba, so a little Worcestershire and salt and spices. It’s great stuff! Original review

#3: Ve Wong Little Prince Bacon – Taiwan

These little crunchy bits of noodles have a great bacon flavor. The big bag comes with a ton of little bags. My wife and I found these at an Asian grocery near Disneyland during our honeymoon – bacon snacks!  Original review

#2: Komforte Chockolates Savory Ramen – United States

The chocolate was exceedingly good – a really nice 53% dark chocolate I enjoyed thoroughly – premium stuff. It’s not so dark that it will put off the milkies and not so light on cacao that it lacks richness. The bits of noodles were nice and crunchy, and not hard like a rock. The soy, onion and garlic flavors were very much muted by the rich chocolate flavor, but that wasn’t a horrible thing. Original review

#1: Mamee Monster Snek Mi Perisa Pedas – Malaysia

I really like the crunch of the noodles; they seem a little different than the other Mamee Monster varieties; they’re really crispy, but maybe have a little more give to them. They have a nice spicy flavor to them which was great and a little bit of sweetness and more spiciness from the seasoning – excellent snacks. Original review

They sent two of the ten packs, so I got two different dinosaurs!

The front and back of the card. It says you can put the dinosaur in water and it’ll grow really big after a few days!

I’m thinking a Stegosaurus on the left and a Brontosaurus on the right? Not sure – been a while since I was a kid though…

After a full week in water, they got pretty big! Indeed, it was fun to have a look at their growth every day – 5 stars for fun!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added almonds, mango, banana chips and peanuts. I really like the crunch of the noodles; they seem a little different than the other Mamee Monster varieties; they’re really crispy, but maybe have a little more give to them. They have a nice spicy flavor to them which was great and a little bit of sweetness and more spiciness from the seasoning. As far as a snack goes, this gets 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.
