Meet The Manufacturer: #1588: Mi E-Zee Perisa Bayam

This is only the second time I’ve had this flavor of instant noodle a couple of times before. For those of you who are wondering, Bayam translates to Spinach. I’m kind of bummed – I don’t have any spinach to go with it today, but I wonder if it’ll need any. Let’s see if this Mi E-Zee Perisa Bayam delivers some spinachy goodness!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 450ml water and add noodle block. Cook for 2 minutes. Add in seasoning sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!

The soup base indeed has a strong spinach scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, vegetable tempura ball, sweet onion, mung bean sprouts and sliced green onion. The noodles have a good chew and familiar gauge. The broth is interesting – kind of a spinach salt broth. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9557226082415.

#1274: Wu-Mu Shiitake Flavor Spinach Ramen

I’ve just got to face it; I’ve got noodles coming out of my ears here! There’s a big bag of these Wu-Mu noodles next to my bed that I’ve been almost tripping over as of late. They don’t fit anywhere else and each one is a 4 pack! I thought today my son and I would try a couple varieties. I figured I’d give this one a shot. I’m definitely not a huge fan of mushrooms, but the spinach noodles sounded nice. Let’s have a look!

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, boil 600ml water. Add noodle block and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add oil and dry sachet and stir.

Green spinach noodles.

Dry sachet.

Very light and very dry.

The seasoned oil sachet.

I made the mistake of getting some of this on my fingers and then licking it off. Ugh!

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles have a very nice chew to them. Their gauge is good as well, and a nice flavor. They aren’t overwhelmingly spinach flavored in the least. The broth is light in flavor (the flavor of the liquid sachet was very much diluted which was good) and has enough oil to give it some heartiness. The vegetables are highlighted by goodly sized chunks of shiitake mushroom which are decent. I am surprised how much I like this one. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4710175565438.

#973: Springlife Instant Noodles Spinach With Organic Noodles

 

Here’s one of the packs that came from Australia! Thanks go to Melanie I. of Jannali, NSW for sending these and also thanks to Mark K. for getting her to do it! These are from China but sold in Australia. Looks like something different – let’s check it out.

The noodle block – in it’s own cellophane.

A large seasoning packet.

Interestingly light powder.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken, broccoli, sweet onion, green bell pepper, garlic salt and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are very nice – great texture and feel. The broth definitely tastes of spinach, but it ends there. It’s not very salty at all, which can be good and bad. Good is that you can add your own, bad is if you don’t have any. I go with the base product of course on my reviews and this is some bland stuff. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 6931162280921 .

#476: Annie Chun’s All Natural Asian Cuisine Teriyaki Noodle Bowl

My sister got me this one and kindly brought it to me to check out – thank you! So I’ve never tried this brand before, so I guess we’ll have to see how it goes.

Two packets – veggies and teriyaki sauce. One thing – these packets are incredibly large compared to most of the packets I’ve seen in the past.

Here’s the veggie pack resting atop the fresh noodles. What you do is you put the noodles and veggies in the bowl and add a cup of water. Microwave for 90 seconds and then drain off the excess water. After that, put the teriyaki sauce in and stir it up.

Click image to enlarge. I added nothing to this product. Well, I appreciate the hookup sis, but man this stuff is below par! I was excited – the noodles are nice and fresh and the veggies were good looking – the front mentioned spinach and tofu, although I enjoyed the sesame seeds. The thing is that the teriyaki sauce was not very good – very lemony and acidic. I disliked it in the extreme and I feel it absolutely ruined everything. I’m bummed; a better sauce would’ve made this a four star noodle bowl, and sadly it will receive a 1.75 out of 5.0 star score from me. Truly disappointing, but maybe you like it. Find it here.

#300: Wu-Mu Steam Spinach Ramen With Onion Flavor

Okay and here we go with review #300! It’s really getting hard to find ones I haven’t sampled and reviewed yet so if anyone would like to send me some that would be really much appreciated! So here’s #300, spinach onion time!

This pack actually contains four servings. I like how the silver ones say soup bag in English and the seasoned oil says nothing in English. I also like the fact that this packaging doesn’t tell you how much water to use. I figured draining the water off was the best bet.

Kinda green going on – spinach’ll do that!

Seasoning powder and seasoned oil.

Click image to enlarge. I added two fried eggs, some kizami shoga [pickled ginger] and fried shallots. I must say I am thoroughly impressed with this one – wow. The noodles are broad and the perfect texture. The seasonings are exactly what they purport to be and brilliantly done. Adding egg and ginger compliments the dish quite nice, and the shallot just makes sense. Altogether, I think this goes up there in the hallowed ranks of the almighty five stars. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here.
