Interesting mixture.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added barbecue pork, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, crispy fried garlic, and habanero togarashi. Noodles are sadly very spongy. They support a broth which has a very odd flavored broth – well, it’s not bad but the aftertaste is just not very good. Lots of fish cake and bits of vegetable throughout aren’t enough to put this one in my good graces. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901071231552.

Spicy pork kimchi tonkotsu? Okay let’s give it a try!

An interesting melange.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, soft egg, barbecue pork, scallions, sesame seeds, and pepper flake. The noodles came out alright, but I think this one would be better served steeping for 4 minutes instead. A nice kimchi and tonkotsu flavor. Included garnish was alright although the kimchi hydrated and had an almost gelatinous other funk to it. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901071231651.

Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘To celebrate 50 years in business for the iconic chip brand, and 30 years for Japan’s instant noodle brand Super Cup, they collaborate as Sour Cream & Onion Pringles Yakisoba! A mouthful of soft noodles with the crunch of onion crates a fantastic textural sensation that works to enhance all the punchy flavors.’

I’m really unsure what to expect with this one. It seems kind of gimmicky to say the least, but then again fascinating. Well, only one way to find out!

Oily; smells like sou cream and onion.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion. So… Have you ever wondered what sour cream and onion powder and oil would taste like with yakisoba? Well, here you go. It’s pretty boring, really. A monotony of saltiness and wrongness. It was fun to try, I’ll give it that – but it’s just not something I found palatable. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901071207588.

#2877: Super Cup Instant Noodle Seafood Flavour

Found this one at the Hi-Life store at the Nangang Exhibition Center in Taipei, Taiwan. Notice on the image it says ‘improved taste’. Making this claim always gives me a bit of a laugh. You could also call it ‘different taste,’ right? Was it too watery before so the amount of liquid added recommendation changed? more of one ingredient? Less of another? Well, we shall never know because all it says is ‘improved taste.’ Also – improved for whom? Person on the left likes it, person on the right wishes it were like it used to be. Anyways, there’s no person A or B here – there’s just me and my tongue. Let’s give it a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, carved squid, Dodo fish ball and shrimp. The noodles were alright – thin and slight crumble. The broth kind of went a little on the strong side toward the seafood end where shellfish reside. It wasn’t too bad, but it could definitely use some more improvement from where I’m sitting. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8888240100153.

#2808: Super Super Cup Signature White Curry

I was surprised to find this one in Taiwan – had seen it in images online quite a few times before but yeah – Taiwan! I got this at the Hi-Life store at the Nangang Exhibition Center. I really didn’t think Malaysian food would be popular in Taiwan, but actually I went to PappaRich over there – a chain of Malaysian restaurants.  I’m pretty sure nowhere is immune to the White Curry craze! Strong flavors and spicy broth is pretty good anywhere you go. Let’s crack this cup open and look around!

Looks like crab stick and perhaps tofu.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Dodo fish ball, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, hard boiled egg, tau pok and fried onion. The noodles are great – good gauge and chew for a steeped instant. The flavor however. I really think that someone really dropped the ball on this one. You see, in order to have a level playing field, I have to treat each review the same way. This means following the printed directions on the packaging. If someone really thinks that this is good without broth, that’s great, but I sure don’t. It’s a hot mess and way too salty for man or beast. I know this would have been good if it didn’t say to be drained. Extremely disappointed. Somebody should be fired.  0.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555037200592.
