Nissin Cup Noodles Chilli Crab Flavour

Can never expect too much from cup noodles right? Wrong! These were delicious! Opened up the cup and expected the usual sachets, the chilli powder / dehydrated vege was already present in the packet. Noods looked curly and thin, I was intrigued. ...

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 ...

Indo Mie Mi Goreng Spicy Beef Ribs Flavour

All this Mi Goreng stuff is making me miss the good old classic that we know of and love; gonna be honest not a huge fan of this one; doesn't have the same 5 packets that I've become accustomed too! Only 4 packets? Ye Olde standard nood block size that we all know as the industry norm; The overall look of these ...

Nissin Indomaret Mi Instan Cup Hot Chicken Rasa Ayam Pedas

I must say I looked at these noods in the packaging and i wasn't thinking there was gonna be much heat behind these bad boys, and... Well I was a bit surprised by how much heat was put out by them! The noods were way to thin for my liking, I found they weren't sucking up all of the flavoring. Doesn't ...

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 ...

Wang Korea Hwakkeun Ha Gamaeun Buldalg Bokkeumudong (Hot Chicken Flavor Udon)

So these puppies first came to my attention when Hans over at the Ramen Rater showed me a photo of them; looks a lot like something else we have seen doesn't it? Isn't there something called Intellectual Property? This looks like such a clear stab at imitating Samyang's prize cow that it's insulting. That being said; we are always ...

Master Kong Roasted Pork Ribs Noodle (Hot Spicy Flavor)

I didn't even realize this delicious little fella was on the table, we have entirely too much ramen here at work. The title; roasted pork ribs? Sounds great! We've been lied to by packaging before this wasn't really an exception. "Hot spicy"; we came to the conclusion they meant to say "Not spicy" and it was a poor translation. Look at ...

Ina Pan Mee Goreng Perisa Kari Dried Curry Flavour

So here's another nood I found in my pantry; I don't know where they came from and I only have the one packet so I'm going to have to go solo with this review because I don't like my chances of finding more of these. Sorry boys. Interesting noods The block was interesting; flat noods! We also have three sachets; sweet soy sauce, ...

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 ...

Samyang Hot Yukgaejang Noodle Soup

Well, finally I get a platform to vent my distaste in spicy food!! How exciting; let's get started then. The noodle size could have been a bit bigger for my liking; that being said, if you’re not one looking to have the top button rip off your pants then this is a great size for you! Standard ...

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 ...

Acecook Hang Nga Bun Bo Hue

So this is one I grabbed at a nearby Asian grocer; I can't read a thing on the packet but it had a photo of some chilies so we knew this would be right up our alley. So Bún bò Huế is apparently a popular Vietnamese soup with vermicelli and beef; now we know what it is let's dive in. Packets galore Look at all ...

Ottogi Jin Ramen Mild

I'm going to start this out with saying this is good; good when it comes to taste. If we came to the decision that these were delicious, I would not have argued too harshly. I think this will be my staple base when adding bits and bobs to my at home ramen dishes. The nood block is plentiful, nice and ...

Paldo Bolkeino Kkokko Bokkeummyeon (Volcano Chicken Fried Noodles)

This dish evokes some great memories of eating tinned spaghetti, it just tastes like burnies as well. As soon as I opened the sauce packet for this, I was hit with the familiar pungent scent of some hot,hot sauce. Dark memories of the 2x noodles filled me, and I was filled with an almost instinctual level ...

#RAMENLABS – Cheese Buldak Bokkeummyeon x Some Chilli

Nongshim Kimchi Ramyun Noodle Soup

I'm a pretty big fan of cabbage when it's no longer cabbage, Kraut, Coleslaw, Kim chi. It's a tale as old as time, underwhelming vegetable picked on in highschool grows up to be a big deal: the classic underdog story. I was eying these off for quite a while and could hardly contain my excitement when the ...

Nissin Gekikara Ramen Rasa Seafood Pedas

The smell of seafood on this one was quite pungent; it brought back memories of those boring as hell fishing trips I went on as a kid (I hate fishing). I immediately started to think I may regret todays ramen option. Sufficient block; acceptable. The nood block was sufficient; hefty serving, a smaller gauge ...
