#3232: Tiger Tiger Noodles In No Time Pad Thai - United Kingdom

A plastic cup of sauce.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added barbeque pork, fried tofu, peanuts, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and coriander. The noodles are a little interesting – like egg noodles but rice. Not my favorite but worked well with the sauce. This was as much like pad thai and I’m a native of Thailand, however it was quite tasty. Basically sweet Thai chili sauce you find at the store is the base. It actually works, but it’s not pad thai by any stretch. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 846462142380.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2201: Mr. Lee’s Noodles Penang Chicken Curry Laksa

Penang. It’s a place I really miss, specifically because friends and flavors live there. some of the most amazing things that I’ve ever tasted are from Malaysia and specifically Penang. I decided to save this for last as I wanted to see how everything else was before I tried something that promises to be good. Today we say hello to this exotic variety and goodbye to the Meet The Manufacturer for Mr. Lee’s Noodles. Here we go!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). contains chicken. To prepare, add boiling water to ridge line (just below the lip of the cup) and give a good stir. cover for 3 minutes. stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

Bits from the bottom of the cup. Note the large piece of cauliflower in the upper left.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles hydrated very well – they’re broad and flat rice noodles. the broth has a nice light chicken taste with a kind of curry aftertaste to them. As far as a medium heat level, heat in this one was non existent. The vegetables and chicken were amazing – super good! However, during my days in Penang, I saw nor tasted anything like this. I think a more apt title would be chicken vegetable stew. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 0641243998718.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2200: Mr. Lee’s Noodles Shaolin Monk Vegetables

I think I was talking about Kung Fu Theater and David Carradine’s career the other day. He played Grasshoppe – a pupil of the Shaolin on that show. Still bugs he; why didn’t they get, oh – I don’t know… A more fitting person to play a Chinese martial arts student? Maybe someone.. Chinese? Anyways, it’s veggie time – let’s get it on!

Bits from the bottom of the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles hydrated very well. As with the other varieties, they’re flat and medium breadth rice noodles. The broth is light with a slight sweetness to it. The real star of this one are the vegetables, of which there are a multitude. This probably has more real estate taken up by vegetables than any instant anything I’ve ever had – something I really liked with this one. Good show! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 0641243998725.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2199: Mr. Lee’s Noodles Tai Chi Chicken

Tai chi makes me think of the slow moving exercise many people do in large groups. This is an instant noodle blog though and so you get 3 minutes to do your tai chi! This is the chicken noodle – the basis of where all instant noodles come from. I believe a company’s chicken instant defines them. Let’s give it a look!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. to prepare, add boiling water to ther ‘ridge line’ (just below the lip of the cup). Stir and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Some of the seasoning and bits of vegetable and chicken from the inside bottom of the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles came out as always – well hydrated and of good quality. They’re thin and broad – plentiful too. The broth was a on the bland side. The vegetables were excellent – green beans and corn were well hydrated as well as cubes of real chicken. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 0641243998701.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2197: Mr. Lee’s Noodles Hong Kong Street Beef

The second review will be this beef cup! Very curious what will be in here – beef? To beef or not to beef? Well, only one way to find out!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add boiling water to ‘ridge line’ (looks to be just below the brim) and stir. cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

The rice noodle block.

Looks like there’s a decent amount of freeze dried beef here!

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are flat and broad. They have a light chew and are plentiful. The broth is very nice – kind of a pho taste to it which works here. The bits of vegetable are just perfect – going to go out on a limb and say they’re the best veggies I’ve seen to this date in an instant noodle. The prevalent bits of beef were something to behold as well – good flavor and texture – definitely beef. Very impressed with it. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 0641243998695.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2196: Mr. Lee’s Noodles Warrior Fighting Shrimp

We start today with a seafood variety. I do believe this is the first instant noodle I’ve reviewed with the words ‘kick-ass’ on the front – hopefully a good sign, especiallywhen it comes to how spicy they truly will be. Let’s have a look at this, the first of six varieties I’ll be reviewing for Meet The Manufacturer this go around!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add boiling water up to ‘ridge line’ – looks to be just under the top of the cup. Stir and cover for 3 minutes. stir and enjoy!

Meet The Manufacturer: #2025: Urban Noodle Authentic Street Food Chow Mein

Today, we have the last of this Meet The Manufacturer. I’ve really enjoyed most of these quite a bit – I’ll say one thing – they’re not bland like some UK products I’ve had in the past! Today it’s chow mein – let’s give it a try!

Swtail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, empty contents of noodle pouch into box and separate with fork. Add in sauce sachet and close box back up. Microwave for 2 minutes at 650W (my microwave is 1100W with power levels of 1-10, so I’ll be using 6). Stir and enjoy!

The noodle pouch.

The liquid pouch – very large.

Some of the sauce with water chestnuts.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and kizami shoga. The noodles came out nice, as did all of the noodles in the set. The flavor however was a kind of black vinegar and sugary sweet mix that just didn’t work for me. Now, this could be a British chow mein to a T, but for me it just didn’t work. However, the water chestnuts were absolutely wonderful. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code number 5011673403000.

A few reviews ago, I mentioned a British delicacy that I couldn’t remember the name of. It hit me though – it’s the munchie box; a smorgasbord of all the things a pizza joint will sell and a kind of appetizer tray in a pizza box – and it looks and sounds like amazingness. Here’s a guy eating a pretty big one.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2024: Urban Noodle Authentic Street Food Pad Thai

Okay so here we go. Pad Thai. In an instant and quick prep scenario, pad thai has gone through the ringer. I’ve had pad thai that comes this way be pretty decent, however many I’ve had taste like peanut butter and black vinegar with some chopped nuts on top. It’s not a real tricky one to translate to a processed food, but it seems a lot of the time that companies will draw on certain flavorings and try to mimic the flavor but end up with something completely different. Let’s hit up this one and see how it goes!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, empty contents of noodle pouch into box and separate with fork. Add in sauce sachet and close box back up. Microwave for 2 minutes at 650W (my microwave is 1100W with power levels of 1-10, so I’ll be using 6). Stir and enjoy!

The noodle pouch.

The large sauce sachet.

Some of the huge sachet of sauce.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, extra large shrimp, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and crushed red pepper flakes. The noodles are flat and broad. They come out of the microwave nicely. The sauce has a flavor that is extremely sweet and has bits of what I believe to be carrot and definitely water chestnut. I would not call this pad thai, but more of a sweet and sour noodle. It’s actually quite good, but it’s poor resemblance to actual pad thai docks some score. Worth a try. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 5011673403024.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2023: Urban Noodle Authentic Street Food Black Bean

I’m a little curious on this one. See, Jjajang is really popular in China and South Korea; basically noodles with a black bean sauce. I’m curious as to if this is leaning in that direction, or whether it’s something on the Caribbean side; maybe a little citrus going on? Well, one way to find out – let’s crack it open and cook it up!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, empty contents of noodle pouch into box and separate with fork. Add in sauce sachet and close box back up. Microwave for 2 minutes at 650W (my microwave is 1100W with power levels of 1-10, so I’ll be using 6). Stir and enjoy!

The noodle pouch.

The sauce sachet – very large.

Some of the sauce.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles in this one were flat instead of round. They came out very nicely. The flavoring however was just strange. I expected maybe something of a Korean-Chinese fusion dish, but those are hearty and rich and not savory and sweet. In fact, this one was a little too sweet for me. The thinly sliced bamboo shoots don’t work for me either; leaving them whole would be nicer I think. What’s more, it has a kind of chemically aftertaste; like chlorine or soap. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2022: Urban Noodle Authentic Street Food Thai Red Curry

This sounds like a good one! Red curry i sone I thoroughly enjoy; although I can’t think of a curry I’ve met that I’ve not enjoyed. When I think of curry and the UK, my thoughts immediately wander towards Red Dwarf episodes with Rimmer complaining about Lister reeking of last night’s vindaloo and stale lager. It also wanders to something I saw a couple years ago – in Britain, you can get takeaway boxes full of fried odd and ends – it looks like pure gut bomb amazingness. But I digress – red curry sounds good – let’s dig in!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, empty contents of noodle pouch into box and separate with fork. Add in sauce sachet and close box back up. Microwave for 2 minutes at 650W (my microwave is 1100W with power levels of 1-10, so I’ll be using 6). Stir and enjoy!

The noodle pouch.

The large sauce sachet.

A thick liquid with a nice scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, crushed red pepper, coriander and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles were nice – decent chewiness and thickness. The flavor on this one was a slightly spicy and acidic curry. Long thin strips of bamboo shoots were abundant as well. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 501167340301.
