#2109: Oni Hot Pot Tuna With Shallot Flavor Noodle

So far, I’ve tried Oni Hot Pot’s Ghost Pepper, XO Sauce and Seaweed and Pepper varieties. This one is a bit of a departure though – I think the only tun aflavored instant noodles I’ve had in the past were the Skipjack Tuna varieties from Indonesia. Well, let’s check this one out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). NOTE – this pack contains 4 packs. Contains tuna. To prepare, add the noodle block to 400ml boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Drain. Add in contents of all sachets. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The first of 3 liquid sachets.

Smells like soy sauce.

Another liquid sachet.

Has a shallot scent.

The third sachet.

Definitely the tuna element.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles were very nice – good chew and quality to them. The flavor was like what it’s called; it has a shallot component which was nice – and then a tuna element which worked too. It seemed kind of Italian to be honest; the oil and shallot along with the tuna went well. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.

Re-Review: Myojo Ippei-chan Yakisoba Japanese Style Noodles

I’ve been going through the reviews I’ve done over the years with a fine-toothed comb lately and thought this one was most definitely due to a re-review. I know a lot of people enjoy this one, so let’s give it an in-depth look!


Here’s a close-up of the side panels (click image to enlarge).

Here’s the lid (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The main seasoning packet – liquid.

Has a very nice smell – I definitely notice a tuna scent.

A nice sized sachet of veggies.

Lots of leafy greens in here!

A little packet of spices.

Interesting – not sure what all it is.

The finishing touch – this stuff gets drizzled all over everything at the end.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added stir fry vegetables, sweet onions, kizami shoga (pickled ginger, narutomaki (fish cake – the ones with the spirals), kamaboko (anoth kind of fish cake – the pink half circles), and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. This is amazing stuff. The noodles come out so nicely (and authentically). The flavoring is great. Tastes just like yakisoba sauce (which I’m sure it is), which has a Worcestshire taste with other flavors mixed in like tuna. The veggies? Crunchy cabbage works very well. The finishing touch of the mayonnaise mustard is epic – gives it a nice moistness that has a crisp spicy bite. This stuff is excellent – definitely something I would consider gourmet or premium. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 011152012469.

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 .

A little bit of color.

#442: Nongshim Kal Guk Soo Korean Style Noodle Soup

Okay so I reviewed Samyang’s Kalgugsu a long time ago and it said it was assorted clam flavored noodle soup. This one just says its Korean noodle soup, however its got mussels, anchovy, bonito, shrimp tuna and mushroom going on too. I wouldn’t call it assorted clam flavor this time around – more like assorted flavor flavor.

Veggies on the left, powder on the right.

Lots of stuff! So this one asked for 2 3/4 cups of water and to be cooked for six minutes!!!

Click image to enlarge. Added two eggs to the boiling noodles while cooking. So first off, the noodles are very nice – high in quality and chewiness. The broth was good and hearty and the veggies were plentiful. I liked the flavor and body of the meal, and rating it accordingly. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#328: Nongshim Big Bowl Udon Japanese Style Noodle Soup

Ladies and gentlemen, the enormous Ramen Box has been opened and we begin. This one comes from Korea.

A single packet of powdered soup base.

Holy cow look at this one! There’s the big pile of seasoning powder in the middle, but look at all this other stuff! Wow, I’m thoroughly impressed – I wasn’t expecting to see this much stuff going on here. Neat little naruto slices, sliced fish stuff, and fried somethings. I would love to know what all these things are! Lots of veggies too – carrot and onion and more.

Click image to enlarge. Bamm finished product. Mmm… The noodles are nice – chewy and thick… Was nice to find a lot of pieces of fish and veggies with every bite! This is a rarity in the instant noodle world I assure you. The broth had a very nice seafood taste and was very nice. I really was impressed with this one and give it 4.5 out of 5.0 stars! Get it here.

#188: Nongshim Udon Japanese Style Noodle Soup

Seen this around for a long time but have never tried it.Always looked kinda plain and boring.

Liquid soup base, flake (veggies) and fresh udon packet.

So here’s the flake and the soup base. There’s a ton of each.

Here’s the done deal (click image to enlarge). The noodles are nice and chewy and very nice to eat. The broth is very tasty – a kind of soy and sweet thing going on with a bit of a fish essence. The ‘flake’ has some interesting stuff in it – I’m thinking some fried tofu and some other weirdities. In short, this was a nice surprise. I’m going to give it a 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. Everything here is just, well, nice and perfect. Get it here.

#148: Myojo Okinawa Soba Japanese Style Noodles With Soup Base

So been really wanting to try this one! Okinawa soba! We needed to spend a little more for the parking validation at Uwajimaya so this looked good! It’s a 5 pack – haven’t see anywhere selling individuals.

Here is an individual pack of noodles…

Two packets – powder and chili flakes.

So the powder contains some fish extract and was quite good – mackerel, salmon, bonito, tuna… Was quite a crowd of fish.

So here’s the finished product (click image to enlarge). I found the noodles to be absolutely superb – chewy and flat. The broth was complex and had a great smell and taste. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. Very good! Get it here.
