#3230: Ve Wong Dah Wei Wang Instant Noodles Artificial Premium Garlic Pork Flavor – Taiwan

#3230: Ve Wong Dah Wei Wang Instant Noodles Artificial Premium Garlic Pork Flavor - Taiwan

During my 2017 trip to Taiwan, I visited a 7-Eleven in Taipei. I pointed out a variety and my friend corrected my speech. I thought for years this brand was Ve Wong – pronounced vee wong. Actually, it’s more like way wong. It appears I was way wrong on this. But now I know! Yeah, poor joke. Roll your eyes and let’s have a look at this neat variety!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added boiled pork, sesame seeds, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, scallions, and Kiki Restaurant spicy seasoning. The noodles came out very well – good gauge and feel and really worked well with the soup. The soup was surprisingly rich and had a thickness t it I didn’t expect but thoroughly enjoyed. This one was very true to name – it tasted like garlic and pork that had been stewed and I enjoyed that. In addition, a nice amount of vegetables in there including cabbage was very good. From the package, I didn’t expect this to be very good, however I’m thoroughly impressed. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710008217558.

Happy Bithday Miri! Repost: #2330: Ve Wong Little Prince(ss) Brand Snack Noodles Artificial Mexican Pizza Flavor

So I did this review the morning that my daughter Miriam was born two years ago today. Happy Birthday, Miri! I thought I’d repost it with a little update.

#2330: Ve Wong Little Prince(ss) Brand Snack Noodles Artificial Mexican Pizza Flavor - Taiwan - The Ramen Rater - noodle snack

As I’ve said in the past, I’m usually about 50 or so reviews ahead of myself. Well, today is the actual day our daughter Miriam will be born and by the time this comes out she’ll be close to two months old. Wow! It’s early in the morning – although it’s just a few hours away. Really excited! This one seemed interesting enough for a day of birth – Mexican pizza from Taiwan? I think a fiesta is in order; although I wish these were called Little Princess – but hey look at the title I think that works at least a little! Let’s check it out!

Update – Actually, she was two months old 2 days ago! I’ve added a few pictures from the day she was born in with this one. She’s really small – she was 6lbs 1oz. It’s funny; Miles is a big kid and 18 months old and took him ages to be able to balance and hold his huge noggin up which Miri was able to just after a few weeks.

Around 7am, the in-laws showed up and everybody piled in the car. Andy and Miles went over the their Aunt’s while we proceeded to the hospital. It was a cold morning and it was snowing – about as lightly snowing as possible, but snowing nonetheless.

We were scheduled for 1030am and by 11am we were holding our new little baby Miriam. Like I said she’s tiny – two months after being born, she’s still wearing newborn clothes. She likes to be held constantly which I’m okay with – she’s pretty darn cute.

But she’s happy (when fed) and healthy. I pout the video at the bottom of when she was born. Oh yeah – so I stayed in the hospital with Kit and Miri of course after she was born. The second day after getting a visit from Kit’s folks and Andy and Miles, I started feeling funny. Turns out the Norovirus has been going around and I’m in a hospital – the best place to catch something like that. Barfing and everything else you can imagine. Got a lift home and was quarantined for the next 48 hours.

Unfortunately, Kit’s mom and dad and folks at her aunt’s house got it too – evil stuff! But yeah I had to stay away from everybody for 2 whole days. Pretty boring hanging out in the bedroom for that long. I watched all three Smokey And The Bandit movies. Anyways, it lasted about 24 hours and went away. Well, let’s get started with this review!

Update 12/17/2017: Well, as I said in the beginning, Miriam is now a whole year old! She’s a funny little girl – quick to smile and laugh but also quick to get grumpy at times. She’s had a pretty tough go with teething – unlike Miles who got through it pretty fast.

It’s fascinating to watch her grow and interact with her broth Miles who’s knee-deep in the terrible twos. It’s funny; she’s very little and Miles is very big for his age. He is very picky about food, however she will eat anything you put in front of her. My favorite sound I get to hear is when they’re laughing and playing together – it’s definitely music to my soul. It’s not always that way with them, but they’re growing up and learning all the time. Happy birthday to you, Miri! We love you so much!

Update 12/17/2018

In the past year, Miriam has become quite a talker and Elmo fan. She’s really got a great sense of humor and keep us all laughing.

I think in addition of being a fan of Elmo, she’s a huge fan of Miles. She likes to bring him treats we’ve noticed and reciprocally, we’ve noticed him being kind of protective of her – if we leave the room he corrals her and tries to get her to come with us. It’s nice to see. They also butt heads a lot when it comes to toys, but they usually get over it.

Now that Miles has all day preschool a few times a week, I take Miri out for a stroll early in the morning. I decked out her stroller with Christmas lights too. She really likes it and so do I. I talk to her about all the little things we see when we walk around. We stop at the supermarket where the people at the bakery give her a cookie. It’s current day, but Iknow in the future we’ll look back at this as the good old days.

#2830: Ve Wong Dried Instant Noodles Assorted Hot Chili Flavor

Here’s another one I hauled back from the wonderful land called Taiwan. God, I love it there. It’s generally hot and sticky humid, but I don’t care – I would happily acclimate to live there. Anyways enough emoting over that wonderful place. This is a variety I found in RT-Mart, which is a gigantic grocery store I visited in Taipei. In fact, it’s an everything store. Let’s crack this open and see what we have in here.

#2752: Ve Wong Instant Noodles Braised Beef Flavor

Here’s one I dragged back to the United States from Taiwan. I know I’ve seen close to the same thing here in the USA, but I wanted to see if the non-export version could be better. I have a feeling it will be. Here’s a little info about braising from Wikipedia –

Braising (from the French word braiser) is a combination-cooking method that uses both wet and dry heats: typically, the food is first seared at a high temperature, then finished in a covered pot at a lower temperature while sitting in some (variable) amount of liquid (which may also add flavor). Braising of meat is often referred to as pot roasting, though some authors make a distinction between the two methods, based on whether additional liquid is added.[1][2]

Braising relies on heat, time, and moisture to break down the tough connective tissue (collagen) that binds together the muscle fibers collectively called meat, making it an ideal way to cook tougher, more affordable cuts. Many classic braised dishes (e.g., coq au vin) are highly evolved methods of cooking tough and otherwise unpalatable foods. Both pressure cooking and slow cooking (e.g., crockpots) are forms of braising.

Familiar braised dishes include pot roastSwiss steakchicken cacciatoregoulashCarbonade Flamandecoq au vinsauerbratenbeef bourguignonbeef brisket, and tajines, among others. Braising is also used extensively in the cuisines of Asia, particularly Chinese cuisine[6] and Vietnamese cuisine, where soy sauce (or in Vietnam, soy sauce and fish sauce) is often the braising liquid.

Okay so braised beef that I’ve had is truly wonderful stuff; tender and tasty with a bit of sweetness to it usually. Well, let’s give this a try!

Ve Wong Instant Noodles Braised Beef Flavor – Taiwan

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, I see that it just mentions just add water. I referenced a couple sites and going with 500ml boiling water is the standard to follow. So, add noodles and sachet contents  to 500ml boiling water and cook for 2~3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The soup base sachet.

Powder and vegetable.

A seasoned oil sachet (aka the ‘sauce bag’).

Oily!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and beef. The noodles are great – fluffy and springy and happy. The broth has a kind of braised beef taste with a decent level of oiliness. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710008211129.

#2746: Ve Wong Fried Noodles With Mexican Chili Flavor

This was one I couldn’t leave Taiwan without. I saw this at RT Mart during my trip and passed it up since it was a 4 or 5 pack. But when I saw it again at Carrefour, I realized I’d better snag this one.

It’s been quite a morning – my scanner got screwed up which it does once every three months or so. When I went to reboot, Windows decided to do an update – which took almost two hours! Ugh. So much for the efficiency of waking up at 4am to get work done./  Well, let’s check out this Mexican Chili flavor instant noodle! Oh and by the way – I found out it’s not pronounced with a V sound but a W like ‘way wong.’

#2423: Ve Wong Kung-Fu Instant Oriental Noodles Soup Artificial Onion Flavor

Another one sent by Colin. I haven’t had any of this brand in quite some time! I should also say I’ve not had an onion flavor instant in quite a while too. Very curious about this one – let’s have a look! NOTE – I just was looking for info on this one and as it turned out, I reviewed it in 2010! It was review #99. I’ll still slap a new number on this one though. What’s funny is if you look at the packaging on it from back then, it says ‘New.’ It still says new! I’m sorry, but this isNOT new.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block and sachet contents to a bowl and add 400ml boiling water. Cover for 3-5 minutes. stir and enjoy!

Kind of like I said in a previous review – this is like Funyuns soup! On this go around over six years later, the package still says new and the flavor seems a bit better. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Re-Review: Ve Wong Instant Oriental Noodle Soup Artificial Sesame Chicken Flavor

Here’s another one that I haven’t had in an extremely long time. I remember I did like it, but that’s about all I remember. Just found it – review #101 – from August 8th, 2010! Yeah almost 6 years ago. I started reviewing instant noodle in 2002, but I only got to around the 60th review by June of 2010 – that’s when I really got back into it and started reviewing again. Let’s have a look!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add package contents to 2 cups boiling water and cook 2-3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The dry soup base sachet.

Has a chicken scent.

Has a strong sesame oil scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken and sesame seeds. The noodles seem a touch thinner than the standard instant and they have a light chew to them. The sesame and chicken flavor broth is very good – rich flavor and tasty. I see why I gave it high marks before – it’s simple yet very satisfying. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710008211365.

#1952: Ve Wong Kung-Fu Brand Instant Oriental Noodle Soup Artificial Beef Flavor

Here’s one I thought would be a re-review. I was on the 99 Ranch Market noodle aisle and though ‘hey this would be an interesting one to check out to test my new camera setup.’ Well as it turns out, I’ve never reviewed this one – very strange! As for my new camera setup, it’s been a rough go. I’ve never used DSLR in the past – only point and shot. It’s a pretty steep learning curve and the first day I had this thing I was ready to chuck it out the window! But after some time I’m starting to get the hang of it. Lightbulbs, lenses, f-stops, ISO settings and shutter speeds. It’s a lot to juggle and I still don’t think I’ve found the sweet spot yet. But I’m still working on it! Anyways, let’s check out the interesting looking beef variety from Taiwan.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, there are two methods: the instant method and the cooking method (I’ll be using the latter). The cooking method says to add everything to a pot with 2 cups boiling water for 2-3, stir and enjoy. The instant method says to add everything to a bowl and add 400ml boiling water, cover for 3-5 minutes, stir, and enjoy.

The noodle block.

The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodle Snacks Of All Time 2016 Edition

Instant noodle… snacks? Yeah! Snacks of all kinds have come from instant noodles – candy, crunchy bits, you name it. They’re popular all over Asia and also the United States; have you ever taken a pack of instant noodles, crushed them and added in the seasoning and shaken the bag up and eaten them like potato chips or popcorn? Well, this is popular elsewhere as well! Let’s check out my favorite instant noodle snacks from over 1,900 reviews. Enjoy!

#10: Wei Lih What’s That? Leisure Meatballs Spicy Chicken Flavor – Taiwan

They’re crunchy and light. They have a slight sweetness and a spiciness that is very slight but builds the more you eat. Original review

#9: Mamee Monster Snek Mi Perisa Ayam – Malaysia

2016_1_16_tts_003

The noodles are nice and crunchy. They have that lightness you would expect from an uncooked instant noodle, but not really oily as some can be. The flavoring is light and has a salty and almost sesame oil kind of flavor to it. Original review

#8: A-Sha Prince Katsu Snack Noodles – Taiwan

They’re very light and crunchy and have a nice salty and crunchy appeal to them. There’s a bit of a sweet and garlic or onion kind of thing going on as well as a hint of spiciness. Original review

#7: J.J. Snek Mi Perisa BBQ – Malaysia

The noodles are crunchy and have a nice flavor to them – very much reminding me of fried chicken from a well known restaurant chain. These were very good! Original review

#6: Samyang Foods Star Popeye Ramyun Snack – South Korea

It’s very crunchy and the noodles have a very light cinnamon note to them. The sugaryness of the rock candy brings this out in a nice way. Original review

#5: Mama Rangers Snack Noodles Shrimp Tom Yum Flavour – Myanmar

The snack noodle pieces are very short. The have a nice crunch to them. The flavor is that of a sweet tom yum, with a hint of spiciness, an unmistakable hit of lemongrass, and definitely tastes like sugary tom yum. It’s a nice flavor and was enjoyable. Original review

#4: Oyatsu Baby Star Snack Noodle Yakisoba Flavor – Japan

These short lengths of noodle are great. They’re light and crunchy. The flavor is that of yakisoba, so a little Worcestershire and salt and spices. It’s great stuff! Original review

#3: Ve Wong Little Prince Bacon – Taiwan

These little crunchy bits of noodles have a great bacon flavor. The big bag comes with a ton of little bags. My wife and I found these at an Asian grocery near Disneyland during our honeymoon – bacon snacks!  Original review

#2: Komforte Chockolates Savory Ramen – United States

The chocolate was exceedingly good – a really nice 53% dark chocolate I enjoyed thoroughly – premium stuff. It’s not so dark that it will put off the milkies and not so light on cacao that it lacks richness. The bits of noodles were nice and crunchy, and not hard like a rock. The soy, onion and garlic flavors were very much muted by the rich chocolate flavor, but that wasn’t a horrible thing. Original review

#1: Mamee Monster Snek Mi Perisa Pedas – Malaysia

I really like the crunch of the noodles; they seem a little different than the other Mamee Monster varieties; they’re really crispy, but maybe have a little more give to them. They have a nice spicy flavor to them which was great and a little bit of sweetness and more spiciness from the seasoning – excellent snacks. Original review

#1317: Ve Wong Little Prince Brand Snack Noodles Original Flavor

In Taiwan, there is a huge market for snack noodles, among them Little Prince. You don’t cook them; they’re seasoned and crunchy and in little snack baggies. Here’s a great example of them – you get a big bag with 20 little bags inside. Noodles oodles! They come in a range of flavors – original, seaweed, kimchi and bacon. Yes, bacon! Here’s a link to my review of the bacon variety. Let’s delve into this snack insanity from Taiwan! Noodles oodles from Little Prince!

Here’s info from the back and from of the large package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, open a little bag and eat it. Pretty simple.

Here are what the little bags inside the big bag look like. I wonder who the Little Prince is?

Here’s the back of one of the little individual packs (click image to enlarge).

Finished (click image to enlarge). There really isn’t all that much to say about these. The noodles are very crispy and crunchy and are rather light. The flavor is salty and kind of like a generic chicken taste but then again everything tastes like chicken so you might get a different thought when tasting this one. I can taste sesame and ginger in there which is nice. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 4710008211099.

I think the dog wants to eat the noodles and have the lady stop talking.
