Umai Crate: Japanese Instant Ramen Box – December 2018 – Unboxing Time

The January Box From Exotic Noods!

Exotic Noods is a monthly subscription service where you can get a few neat varieties of instant noodles shipped to your door! This is really great for those who are nowhere near an Asian grocery – or those of you who are but have no idea where to start or what to try. Their picks are usually pretty good – stuff most people will enjoy. Let’s crack this box open and see what’s inside!!

Here’s what I found under the lid (click to enlarge).

A little pamphlet outlining the varieties within.

A nice assortment (click to enlarge)! Clockwise from top left, we have Samyang Ramen, a South Korean bowl which was originally introduced in 1963. Next is Nongshim Kimchi Noodle Soup – one I real;ly liked. Beneath that is a past The Ramen Rater’s top Ten List pick – Nissin Yakisoba. Finally, Maruchan Kitsune Udon and a few pairs of chopsticks. Note – the Nissin Yakisoba is upside down, as my assistant was ‘helping…’

I had to take this picture really fast as he ran around the apartment shaking this one and yelling at it happily. Thank to Exotic Noods for the sample box – check out their website today!
