#2877: Super Cup Instant Noodle Seafood Flavour

#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!

A light powder.

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

#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.

#1790: Super Kimchi

Here’s another cup I got during last year’s trip to Penang. As I’ve been mentioning, I’m trying to get everything reviewed before they expire! Not often do I get to go abroad and bring home noodles, so it’d be a horrible waste to lose any. Anyways, this is an interesting one – a kimchi flavor cup noodle from Malaysia. I don’t think I’ve seen many of those. Let’s check it out!

Here’s detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, empty sachet contents into cup and add 350ml boiling water. Re-cover and steep 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

I wouldn’t have expected a Malaysian kimchi noodle cup to be so good! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888240110206.

#1788: Super Curry Flavour Noodles

Another one from last year’s Malaysia trip. Turns out I still have a few more I haven’t gotten to so it’s time to run through them before they expire. Curry. Malaysia. Super. Let’s check it out.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add in the contents of the sachet and add 326ml boiling water. Re-cover and let steep 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Finished (click image to enlarge) Added Dodo fishballs, coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, white onion and tau pok. The noodles hydrated pretty well but could have done a little better. The broth was full of curry taste, but so watery and thin that it just made me feel that less water would be a little better, even if it ended up much saltier. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars..

#1785: Super Instant Noodles Black Pepper Crab Mi Goreng

One of the last ones I got during my trip to Penang, Malaysia last year to visit the folks at MyKuali. This is from a store called Econsave. I had seen this Super brand before but was always curious if I’d end up with any of them; very elusive. Let’s check out the pepper crab mi goreng!

Our power was out for just over an hour earlier – A nice change for some family time.

The black pepper flavor was definitely there in this one, as were elements common to mee goreng like the sweet soy flavor and nice oiliness. The small pieces of crabstick hydrated nicely and worked well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888240110220.

#1495: Super Instant Noodles Mee Goreng

Here’s another poor cup noodle that got beaten up a bit on the flights back from Malaysia. Could’ve been between Penang and Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur and Taipei, or Taipei and Seattle – probably a combo of all three. Poor foam cup! There was a lot of turbulence last Sunday morning over Japan. Luckily, this is a noodle that gets drained anyways, and so it’ll come out fine. What’s funny is that the cup got banged up, but the noodle block is almost completely intact! Got this one at Econsave in Butterworth!  Let’s check this mee goreng out! By the way – you may have also seen ‘mi’ goreng. Mi Goreng and Mee Goreng are the same thing; they both mean fried noodles – there’s also Mie Goreng you may see as well.

Here are detail from the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. to prepare, add 300ml boiling water and steep for 3 minutes. Pour off the water and add in sachet contents and stir well. Enjoy!

I recommend to people who love trying new foods – go to Penang! Read up on it!

The noodle block.

The powder seasoning packet.

Spicy stuff – deep reddish color.

A nice amount.

A paste packet.

Thick, oily paste.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken breast with Cavender’s Greek Seasoning, a fried egg with Krazy Mixed Up Salt and a little Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake.

The veggies are great – especially the corn which re-hydrates very well. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 070662096345

What an awesome commercial.

Wow – I wonder what the little things they’re pulling off the big advert are?

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!

#805: Acecook Super Big Ramen Soy Sauce Flavor Japanese Style Instant Noodle

So the last one of these I had was super salty. hoping this one isn’t going to be like that; I couldn’t really eat the last one because of it.

3,290mg of sodium (click image to enlarge).

A nice looking noodle block.

A big seasoning packet.

Veggies and powder.

A liquid packet.

Smells like sesame oil.

Finished. (click image to enlarge) Noodles are lackluster; they lack decent backbone. The broth is extremely salty but has a nice soy flavor. The oil kind of cheapens the experience as does the heavy saltiness A tad less on both would be excellent. The finest point in this one was the veggies. They’re really decent – corn and other bits like narutomaki. That doesn’t save it from doom though. 1.25 out of 5.0 stars – again, so salty I couldn’t finish it. UPC bar code 074410396701 – get it here.

Looks like a commercial for its Japanese version.

#791: Acecook Super Big Ramen Tonkotsu Flavor Japanese Style Instant Noodle

Here’s one I got a while ago at Uwajimaya in Seattle. It’s big, Japanese and tonkotsu flavor – sounds much better than the last one I had!

Here’s the side panel stuff – click to enlarge.

The noodle block. Looks really nice, I think.

Only one seasoning packet, but it’s really big.

I put most of the packet in this little sake cup – it would not all fit.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some veggies, some chicken lunch meat, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), a hard-boiled egg marinated in Kikkoman soy sauce, some Ajishima Kimchi furikake, some Sushinori (seaweed) and finally a couple shakes of Tabasco Buffalo Style hot sauce. The noodles: not bad – a nice texture and quality to them. The broth however is way too salty for me – so much so I couldn’t handle it. I was really shocked at that but oh well. Bummed. 1.0 out of 5.0 – the noodles were good, at least. UPC bar code 074410396718 – get it here.

I bet this stuff is really really good!

Mr. Noodles and a meat tenderizer. This is bizarre.
