Minimal Regret

Samyang Jjajang Buldak Bokkeummyeon

It's been a long time, I missed thy noodlies. Kam has been teasing me with these ones for quite a while now. From what I'm being told we're all just blaming Josh for getting this one out so late so I'm going to go with that also: fuck you Josh! Anyway, let's get down to this reviewing business. I freakin' love everything ...

Samyang Kimchi Song Song Ramen (Bowl Version)

Well this is odd, Didn't I do the review for the last Song Songs? Seems odd to have me say the similar things about the same noods in different packaging! Here we go though! I prefer bowls for convenience sake, I like not having to source a bowl and just dump what I need into a pre-package and go. I'll always have a place in ...

Paldo King Hot and Spicy Jumbo Bowl Noodle

Here we go again with the bowl noods. I'll admit it; I am a massive fan of them and the flavour they provide into my mouth as well as my stomach region area. This nood was no exception! It was delicious! I loved this meal! I wanted more and more! Why do all good things have to come to an end? Why am I rambling? Look ...

Samyang Kimchi Song Song Ramen

The care package has arrived and we are back in business! Behind the scenes we have low key been freaking out about running out of ramen; I think we had one packet left. Moving on, let's get to the review; Samyang's Kim chi Song Song. Noodle block is HUGE! Tasty, tasty thick gauged noodles, the one flaw ...

Mamee Chef Perisa Tom Yam Thai Creamy Tom Yam Flavour

We love our Mamee. They have yet to disappoint (Ok, it's 2 for 2 but that's still a good run) so I'm super pumped to try these; even better that they are Tom Yam flavour! Noods were a bit busted (my fault, should have checked the packets before I bought) but a lot of additions! Crispy veggies, a few prawns, plenty ...

Samyang Buldak Bokkeummyeon (Cup Version)

We love Buldak; you know it, I know it, the world knows it. It's fantastic. It's fiery and tasty and in (most) cases, not very poo-y. That being said, as we learned from the bowl version of these noods there are always exceptions to rules; that leaves us here reviewing the cup version to see how our bowels fare ...

Mamee Chef Perisa Ayam Pedas Shiitake Spicy Chicken Shiitake Flavour

This puppies have been sitting on our ramen table for quite a while now; well their number is up! Time to review! I'm a fan of Shiitake mushrooms, and an even bigger fan of spicy chicken so here's hoping for a decent meal! Out the gate I was impressed with the amount of roughage provided; ...

Paldo Hwa Ramyun Hot and Spicy Noodle Soup

Well, This sucked. Only because I had a wisdom tooth out over the weekend. These had just enough spice to make my open mouth cavity a stinging throbbing mess. I could feel my mouth becoming progressively more inflamed throughout the afternoon. This was a nightmare. It was tasty, I enjoyed the crap out of these noods. ...

Mi ABC Selera Pedas Mi Instan Goreng Rasa Ayam Pedas Limau (Hot Chicken Lemon Flavour)

Mi ABC, what can I say? You knocked it out of the park. Plentiful bits in bags, fantastic flavour. I would gladly eat these several times over. Your usual mi goreng style nood block, tried and true. I feel maybe a little more heat brought to the table would make this the perfect ramen. Pack galore! Heat was there, dont get me wrong. ...

Tseng Rice Noodle Spicy Flavor

I didn't know 'spicy' was a flavour; looks like I learn something new every day. Seriously, reading the packaging (the English part on the back at least) next to 'flavour' it literally just says 'Spicy'. How mysterious. Look! SPICY flavour! So we have a thing with Taiwanese noodles; they either taste bland or they ...

iMee Creamy Tom Yum Shrimp Flavour Instant Noodles

Decent noodles? Well, the bar has been set albeit, not very high. Noodle block, What is with Thailand and this nood style? It's brittle and it just kind of doesn't hold the flavour as well as I would like. Pretty small block, lots of seasoning I would like to add that Kam is an idiot. The packaging shows ...

Samyang Ramen Spicy Flavour Noodle Soup

So these had been sitting on our review desk a while; I like the bright orange packaging and unoriginal name. "Samyang Ramen, Spicy Flavour"; good work. Says what it does on the pack. So let's eat these! Standard Standard square block -hefty noodle size as is expected - and a packet of roughage and soup base. Bits ...

Nissin Gekikara Ramen Rasa Pedas

Had a great time tasting and reviewing previously so had to come back for more Ramen review action. Not a bad little package here, Nissin delivering a very pleasant culinary experience. Standard sized block, I tend to prefer these with broth noodles. Standard block; nice roughage Taste was ...

Tseng Noodles Spicy Sichuan Pepper Flavor

Premium packaging often leads to underwhelming noods. Gladly, this wasn't the case, the ribbon noodles were fantastic, the premium packaging it appears carried through to its contents. Oooh we have a fancy-pants right here! I was a little disappointed with the lack of roughage but the flavours I ...

Sichuan Baijia Chongqing Noodles Spicy Hot Flavor

So I'm an idiot, I haven't got the ramen table memorized so good and bought this pack twice. I thought it had a great, almost premium, packaging; perhaps it was a great decision. So we opened the packaging the day before to see what we were in for; ribbon noods, NICE! I had to consume mine a little later than my ...

Mi ABC Selera Pedas Rasa Gulai Ayam Pedas

I learned a valuable lesson today; don't always rely on the serving suggestion for making your noods. I mean, look at the packet; that fork on the right is making it pretty clear these are a stir fry nood (the noodles have lots of little chilli specs and slices clinging to them for dear life). I think it's almost close enough ...

Ching’s Secret Hot Garlic Instant Noodles

We had been eye-ing these up for a while; I'd located these via an online merchant prior to my trip gallivanting around Indonesia. "Hot Garlic Flavour" mmmm. I love garlic; and I love heat. Let's see how these hold up. There are two noodle blocks in this bowl; they are tiny The pack says it serves 4; the noodle ...

Nissin Gekikara Ramen Ramen Goreng Rasa Pedas

Look at this fancy nood, tramping round here with all its packets and such. There is a LOT of seasoning with this one - dried veg, chilli/soy oil, flavouring powder and more chilli powder, all bringing you a sodium sensation that dances about your mouth like a hungry stripper. 4 sachets total; this is generous of them The taste is delicious - ...

Ottogi Yeul Ramen

Happy Yeultide everyone, this is our christmas special and last ramen for the year! We're closing out the year with a classic ramen - beef broth and mushroom. Like an old prostitute friend, this dish is welcoming and easy to slip into, with a little fire left to keep you interested. Some tasty dried veggies A familiar look; and ...

Nongshim Neoguri Seafood and Spicy Noodle Soup

Disclaimer: I'm racist against mussels, creepy beardy wee things. And this dish tastes like mussels, quite a bit. The noodles again are a winner, Nongshim have a great recipe going for them, and the shape is so convenient for those of us who don't use square bowls. The noods will need a bit of microwaving if you're going the soak method, but ...
