Minimal Regret

Paldo HWA Noodle Hot & Spicy Flavor – With Soy Peptide! (Cup Version)

So today I am going solo; I had three packets of these in my drawer at work but someone obviously thought it was a good idea to steal one for a quick lunch-time snack and I really couldn't be bothered to go out and buy another one. So I share some of the responsibility for leaving Josh out. Funny story; ...

Prima Taste Singapore Chilli Crab La Mian Premium Noodle in Sweet & Spicy Seafood Sauce

I will say a few things here; I'm not really a big fan of sweet chilli. OK well that was just one thing. Let's just get on with this. So the noodles themselves were actually pretty fantastic; great gauge, long, nice snap to them, and felt really authentic to a Singapore stir ...

Samyang Carbo Buldak Bokkeummyeon

Oh my! Sometimes I feel like we should just convert to "Samyang Regret Rater" as it seems this is all we review; but no one else in the noodle industry is contributing as much to the cause. Seriously; Samyang drops more consistent hot bangers than Roc-a-fella records in the late 2000's. My body is ready. So these come ...

Indo Mie Mi Goreng Rasa Sambal Rica-Rica

So there are many things I like about living so close, and getting the chance to go, to Indonesia; the scenery, the people, the culture...and of course, the Mi Goreng. I just got back from Central Java yesterday after attending a cousins wedding and I brought back some stowaways! Two new Mi Goreng varieties! We all ...

Samyang Kimchi Ramyun

Another treat from Samyang, I'm more a fried style noodle fan but these reviews aren't going to do themselves (hehe, "do themselves"). I'm not going to lie, when opening the packaging, I found the add-ins a little sparse. One Sachet? I want more goodies! That being said, the ...

Gong Mi Goreng Special Fried Noodles

It's a tough game in Australia's noodle market to come out with Mi Goreng, the masses will always flock to Indo Mie's variant, it's tried and true. The packaging is perhaps a little underwhelming it looks as though the marketing team kind of phoned it in. On first impression, my ...

Nissin Demae Ramen Spicy Flavour

I don't even know what to say. I wanted to give these the benefit of the doubt because Nissin have treated us pretty well with their other noods; these were a lie. A big fat lie. There is no Spicy, there is no Flavour; so how dare you call this "Spicy Flavour"? So we get the standard thing nood block you would EXPECT from ...

Indo Mie Mi Goreng Fried Noodles

Well well well; we made it! We finally got to 100 reviews; you thought it would never happen, heck I thought it would never happen. Shoot, I thought the first 100 we would get to was "It took Steve 100 days to finish his review"; but nope, 100 reviews. And what better way to celebrate than to review the classic Indonesian ...

Nissin Fried Ramen U.F.O. Spicy Curry Flavor Mi Instan Rasa Kari Pedas

Nissin, your UFO ramen are a revelation. From the nood block being most tasty to the abundance of seasoning/sauce Sachets the only subpar contribution of your UFO series is the shitty fork you provide, it's terrible. Everything else though, top notch. I write this, ...

Nissin Cup Noodles Black Pepper Crab Flavour

I think I have been eating shitty seafood flavoured things for a long time. I'm finding the seafood flavoured ramen haven't been as bad as anticipated. I appreciate the cup noodle's. I like that it's the perfect work lunch, everything's already in there, just add water. The flakes of (what I hope is) actual crab is a nice touch. I'm not big ...

Vifon Pho Vietnamese Style Sour and Spicy Instant Rice Noodles

Now I am a HUGE fan of Pho Soup, so when we spun these n00ds I was thoroughly excited. Loving the variety we've been getting as of late. These came in a cup, upon revealing the contents we found everything in plastic bags, nice touch. Rice noodles were bunched up and sealed, another bag contained ...

Choice Mi Goreng Flavoured Instant Noodles

So, Choice is a budget brand here in Australia. They Make cigarettes and they make noodles now (they probably make other things too but these are two things I know for sure). The reason I mentioned cigarettes is because the flavour was extremely lacking, Almost as if I had no taste-buds ...

Indo Mie Mi Goreng Rendang Spicy Beef Flavour Stir Fry Noodles

Aww yisss, rendang and ramen together at last! This delicious combination is brought to you by that old favourite of students everywhere - Indomie, and it certainly lives up to the high-but-not-inaccessibly-bourgeoisie-high bar that they set themselves. The same great nood cake of Indomie standard mixes well with the rendang sauce ...

Nissin Fried Ramen U.F.O. Spicy Mayo Mi Instan Rasa Saus Jepang

Spicy mayo flavour? As a white boy I am so excited about the idea of mayo. The tech thrown into the packaging is fantastic. Dehydrated veg with the noodles so they hydrate with the noods, a generous serving of sachets, this ticks all the boxes. Lets talk about the draining system on the bowl, I think so many ...

Mamee Chef Perisa Laksa Kari Curry Laksa Flavour (Cup Version)

Yes the taglines are terrible right? So we haven't had the pleasure of reviewing Mamee yet; and for our first one we have a delicious sounding Curry Laksa! Opening the package we get a lot of goodies; two seasoning sachets, dried vegetables (and tofu!) and some kind of laksa paste. All up makes for a bit of excitement here. ...

Mi ABC Selera Pedas Mi Instan Rasa Sup Tomat Pedas (Hot Tomato Soup Flavour)

Spicy tomato flavour? Sure, why not? I like tomato soup and a bit of chilli is always a good thing. Let's see how this goes. Firstly, this looks like swamp water after mixing. Why isn't it red? I associate the colour red in broths to both spicy and/or tomato, instead we are left with a murky orange-ish colour. Normal ...

Samyang Nagasaki Champong Red

Holy moly; a red packet! This has gotta be spicy right? We have been churning through many a pack that claims spice, but much like a newspaper escort what we get at the door is not what was advertised (I wouldn't know, I've just heard). Maybe this will change today! Not a lick of English on the packaging; these are ...

Paldo Bibim Men Oriental Style Noodle Mi Kho Dai Han

These were the second cold noodle we've had on our journey I think, and they are an interesting divergence from standard noodle flavours. These have an apple hit to help cool the mouth while also giving a wee nip to the tongue with the spicy profile in the sauce. Now these definitely aren't a spicy noodle, so ...

MyOri Malaysia Penang White Curry Noodle Mee Kari Putih Penang (dengan Ramuan Semulajadi)

For gods sake. No, I'm serious; this name is longer than Jay-Z's money. Do you know how annoying it was to make the feature image for this article? Don't ask. I'm mad. These better be good. So the package does say "Super Spicy" on the side, so I do have somewhat high expectations for the heat level of these; it's been a ...

Paldo Koreno Premium Thuong Hang Mi Vi Kim Chi

So I picked these up from a specialty candy store in Yogyakarta called "Snacklicious"; the place had a whole bunch of candy and snacks imported from various Asian countries. This was one of the many I brought back. Round...it fits in a bowl So we are all aware of Paldo, the Korean noodle company; however what surprised me is Paldo, ...
