#3185: Sakurai Foods Vegetarian Stir Fried Noodles (Worcestershire Sauce Flavor) - Japan

I reviewed this one on February 10th, 2019. This has been a crazy week – we’ve got layers of snow here and haven’t been able to even move the car since Friday. It’s Tuesday and probably we won’t be going anywhere today, either.

The weather folks say this has been a storm series that I’ll be able to tell mygrandkids about. Yesterday was the best day of it – after days of not making it about freezing and waking up to take the dog out in 13 degrees (-10.5C) cold, it finally warmed up a bit. To the point that it started dumping snow yet again. Huge fluffy wet flakes.

#3185: Sakurai Foods Vegetarian Stir Fried Noodles (Worcestershire Sauce Flavor) - Japan

It was great – it had been so slick and icy everywhere and now you could run in the stuff. We threw snowballs at eachother, Kit built a snowman with Miri which on first attempt Miles ran over to and kicked over. I rolled a pretty big snowball. It was a lot of fun. In the sky we saw flashes from time to time – snow undoubtedly weighing down branches of big Douglas fir trees to the point of snapping and busting power lines which in turn cause transformers to explode.

It’s funny because I know this will end up published about 3 months from now as we’re knee-deep not in snow but in springtime. Let’s check it out!

#3181: Nissin Yakisoba Instant Pancit Savory Beef Flavor – Philippines

#3181: Nissin Yakisoba Instant Pancit Savory Beef Flavor - Philippines

This one was found up in Richmond, BC at the SuperStore. What’s funny about this one? Well, it shows chopsticks on the cup and has a fork inside. I’ve been given a ration of insults and criticism for using a fork. I really don’t understand why; I mean, here’s an Asian variety with a fork. I think it’s common for Westerners to immediately go to ‘Asian people use chopsticks and if you use them wrong you suck’ kind of thing. My logic is that if I’m in Asia, I’ll use a pair of chopsticks. In Thailamd they use a fork to push food onto a spoon and then eat it, so I did that while there. It really doesn’t matter what tool you decide to use, it’s about eating a meal, right?

Anyways back to more important matters. What’s pancit you ask? Here’s something from Wikipedia –

In Filipino cuisinepancit are noodlesNoodles were introduced into the Philippines early on by Chinese Filipino settlers in the archipelago, and over the centuries have been fully adopted into local cuisine, of which there are now numerous variants and types. The term pancit is derived from the Hokkien pian i sit (Chinese便ê食Pe̍h-ōe-jīpiān-ê-si̍t or Chinese便食pinyinbiàn shí) which literally means “convenient food.”[1] Different kinds of noodles can be found in Filipino supermarkets which can then be cooked at home. Noodle dishes are also standard fare in local restaurants. Food establishments specializing in noodles are often referred to as panciterias.

Nancy Reyes Lumen of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism writes that according to food lore handed down from the Chinese, noodles should be eaten on one’s birthday.[1] They are therefore commonly served at birthday celebrations and Chinese restaurants in the Philippines often have “birthday noodles” listed on their menus. However, she warns that since “noodles represent long life and good health”, they must not be cut, as that would “corrupt the symbolism.”[1]

Pancit is a derivative of a type of noodle(s) that originated in China but pancit which is different in its own aspect originated in the Philippines. The fact that pancit is eaten and part of Filipino culture means that it was most likely brought over from settlers originating in China or East Asia.

Well, there you go – pancit means noodles. Let us begin.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added roast beef lunch meat, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, and fried garlic.

The flavor was definitely on the Filipino side of the spectrum – nice beef with other flavors going on. This seemed more pancit than yakisoba and was pretty good. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4800016551871.

Woot woot! It is so rare these days I can get my hands on a variety from the Philippines that I’ve not reviewed yet and so I’m really stoked on this one. What’s interesting is that there are two Nissin companies in the Philippines. Nissin Monde and Nissin Universal Robina. Nissin Monde is actually a company that first started out selling biscuits. Nissin Universal-Robina is an arm of the well known Japanese empire of instant noodles. Nissin Monde is responsible for the Lucky Me! brand. Kind of interesting and odd.

The tough part was getting the liquid sachet content to distribute. But once I did, this was quite enjoyable! A nice sweetness, spiciness, and hint of chicken taste worked well. As for being yakisoba, that was a little stretch but whatever you call it, it was good. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4800016551864.
