Here’s yet another I got up in Canada during my birthday trip this last year. This one sounded especially good – chow mein! BBQ pork! How can you go wrong? Well, my hope is that one can’t go wrong! Let’s find out.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil the noodle block for 4 minutes and drain. Add in sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!

The non fried noodle block.

A liquid sachet.

Has a nice BBQ pork scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added barbecue pork, mung bean sprouts and white onion. The noodles had a strong chew to them and were plentiful. The flavor was very much like barbecue pork you would get when you get the Chinese appetizer at an American restaurant; sweet and tasty. It worked very well. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710175570722.

#1541: Wu-Mu Steam Pork Flavor Ramen

Here’s one of these Wu-Mu 4 packs I’ve not reviewed before – steam pork. I think there’s steam, simmered, stewed and maybe another one. That’s quite the array! Anyways, let’s check this one out!

Here’s the distributor/import sticker (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, add one noodle block to 550ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add contents of one oil and one seasoning sachet and stir. Enjoy!

Dry seasonings sachet.

A powder and vegetable mix.

An oil sachet.

Has an onion scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge) Added hard boiled egg, pork, mung bean sprouts and green onion. The noodles are very good. They have a very strong backbone and chewiness is as fresh. Also, they have a wide flat shape which also influences the mouthfell. The broth is excellent as well, with good flavor – just the right balance of strength and mildness that works very well. My only complaint are the vegetable bits didn’t hydrate extremely well, and so some were a little hard to chew. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 4710175565131.

 You can get a couple of these 4 packs here!

#1440: Wu-Mu Dried Noodle With Beef Flavor Sauce

I’ve reviewed quite a few instant by this brand. They’re made in Taiwan and they come with four of everything; four noodle blocks, four of each sachet. The Interesting twist with this one is that it doesn’t use broth; it’s a stir noodle! I don’t think I’ve found one of those yet. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). Look like it doesn’t contain meat but check for yourself.

I with this had a little more oil to lube up the noodles. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710175570333.

#708: Wu-Mu Pork Flavor Ramen Mi Thit Bam

Got this on our recent trip to California at a 99 Ranch down there. I rememebr enjoying the beef one I got the time before in California during our honeymoon, so figured it’d be a good idea to give this one a try!

The package back (click image to enlarge). Notice the directions – they don’t say how much boiling water – except in the microwave part. Actually, if you look at the Chinese, you can see the number 550 in there. Sometimes there are packs or cups with nothing in English and those numbers can be really helpful. Single digits like 3 or 4 can be minutes of cooking. 550 would usually be the amount of water in mL or cc.

These looks to be the standard steamed noodles that Wu-My likes to use.

Hey – get your grubby mitts offa my sauce bag! Actually, this contains dry seasonings.

See? Not real saucy. Dry soup base and veggies.

Here’s some seasoned oil.

Pretty standard seasoned oil.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I scrambled an egg with a little Kikkoman Soy Sauce, added some turkey breast, some store brand stir fry veggies and a little Ajishima Kim Chi furikake. The noodles were a big letdown here. Very chewy – overly so. They also didn’t take on the flavor of the broth. The broth was pretty lackluster as well. A surprise since the beef ramen they make was so good! Well, there’s one more variety to try they make in this line so I’ll have to give that one a shot. Most of their products are really good but not a fan of this one, sad to say. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 673367040448 .

Re-Review: Wu-Mu Beef Flavor Ramen Mi Bo

What’s with all the re-reviews you ask? Well, I’m stalled at review #599 as I’m awaiting the opportunity to review an pack of instant noodles that is pretty generic but has been overlooked. I should have it in my clutches VERY shortly. Decided for this one – beefy and sweet and spicy and I remember…

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge).

Me expenditure feel very well of taken care. Moving along.

Seasoned oil and dry seasoning.

These noodles are steamed, not fried.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added an egg. Used just under 400cc of water – it didn’t say how much water to use so I thought that would work. Work it did! The noodles are chewy and full of flavor, the broth is spicy and sweet and hearty.l Veggies aren’t too bad either. Awesome! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars!

#449: Wu-Mu Beef Flavor Ramen Mi Bo

This package was part of a five pack found at a 99 Ranch near Anaheim, CA. I’ve never seen such a basic variety from Wu-Mu before and it really piqued my curiosity. Wu-Mu prides itself on being a more premium brand and doesn’t fry their noodles but steams them. The result is less fat this whole pack has only 4g fat, compared to something like 14-22 grams in a fried instant noodle. Let’s see how this stuff is for breakfast with a couple of eggs.

Some oil, some powder seasoning. The oil looks like it may be a little spicy – not sure on this one. Taiwanese folks seem to like their noodles hot – especially the beef flavored ones it seems!

A little bit of vegetable in with the powder seasoning – probably some onion or something. That oil looks sinister as it it is ready to pounce on the taste buds with fury! I cooked the noodles in two cups of water for 4 minutes – the packaging didn’t say how much water to use so I went with the just about two cups / 400cc reasoning, since that’s how much 99% of the instant noodles I’ve tried call for.

Click image to enlarge. I added two fried eggs with medium firm yolks. When I put the cooked noodles and broth in the bowl, I was greeted with a nice sweet smell – it  was very pleasant. After some stirring, I added the eggs atop as you see in the picture. First off, the noodles were cooked as per directions on the packaging. They were excellent – very chewy and firm! Also there were an ample amount of them. The broth is spicy and sweet and beefy – very much to my liking. This was really good stuff – 4.5 out of 5.0 stars – surprised to be giving these such a high rating – beyond expectations! I hope to find the other Wu-Mu varieties like this soon!

#270: Wu-Mu Dried Noodle With BBQ Pork Flavor Sauce

So today’s a downtime today. My lady Kit’s not feeling well and we decided a couple days ago that we would chill and watch Star Trek movies and eat noodles together. That being said, I needed to find some kind of new noodle thing that she night like. Well, BBQ Pork flavor sounded pretty good to me and I thought she’d dig it too.

Yeah so its enough for 4 people. Pretty cheap at around $3 for all of this.

Here are the veggies! Holy cow they are colorful and ample!

So here’s the BBQ pork sauce – thick and black.

Click image to enlarge. The noodles were very chewy – very very chewy indeed! The veggies were nice and the flavoring was alright; just wish there was a bit more of it. I think the marks went down because of the chewiness of the noodles. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars on this one. Sorry Kit!
