Paldo Bulnak Bokkummyun

Oh boy oh boy oh boy; this was another hard-to-come-by ramen that had been on our radar for a while! Luckily a workmate - who was busy looking for ramen to replace ones he stole from our review-desk (horrible, horrible man) - spotted these babies at a nearby Korean deli and told me where to find it! Funny that; if he hadn't have been ...

Emart Super Junior Habanero Ramen

So, I have had a few days off from the reviews, moving into a real life house took my focus away from what was important, Ramen Regret. You don't need to know Korean to know this is gonna be bad. What better way to get myself back into the full swing of things than what is claimed to be the hottest instant ramen on the ...

Paldo Spicy Seafood Flavor Noodle Soup

Smells like...seafood...again You know, something I've learned these past few weeks is not to disregard a ramen just because it wreaks of seafood. I love seafood; but when that smell is coming from a packet of noodles you kind of get a bit put off. Can't explain it. That being said these ...

Yum Yum Tom Yum Kung Creamy Flavour

At first I thought I'd f**ked the cooking of this ramen, the packet is.... esoteric in its instructions, and light on friendly pictures for the silly farang. Preparing this is a bit nerve wracking, as the flavour sachets do not appear to be mixing well with the water so you could be excused for thinking this is a 'dry' noodle. However further perusal ...

Nongshim Shin Ramyun Noodle Soup

I was excited for today; I knew it was the day we would be finally reviewing Shin Ramyun! It's definitely one of my all time favourites and one I pretty much always have around the house, just in case (just in case I want a FLAVOUR EXPLOSION IN MY MOUTH...pause). I had already started eating; sorry. They are just so good! ...

Nissin Tom Yam Mee Goreng Flavour

I'm a big fan of Mee Goreng, It's reminiscent of my year abroad and broke. It reminds me of a simpler time, back when bills were minimal, debts didn't exist yet and smoking in pubs was still legal. My cohorts are already quite mad as I had to eat mine a day later than them, so this review is late and it's all ...

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 ...

Nongshim An Sung Tang Myun

I was excited for these ones; who doesn't love Miso Soup? And I definitely love Ramen. So this seemed like a winning combination! A nice hefty block of thin noodles The noodles only came with one sachet; that was a little disappointing. Where is the roughage? Don't I need some seaweed in my Miso ...

Nongshim Chal Bibim Myun

Ooooweeee I was excited for these noodles. i had been eyeing off our table thinking to myself, this is going to be great. When the time came to cook, Kam informed me that they are to be served cold, that's when things got weird. There was no perforation where the arrow was pointing; so we ignored the instructions and opened from the top ...

Ibumie Penang White Curry Mee

Much like the Nazi ideology, this 'white' curry is all show and little substance. From the massive size of the flavour sachets, I was expecting much from this curry - bold flavours, lots of heat, massive regret. In reality there wasn't much to this. While still an adequately tasty broth, it certainly lacked ...

Samyang Sutah Ramen Noodle Soup

Holy Shit-balls these are good! Like...damn...I dig these. The noodles are the perfect thickness (of course, it's Samyang, what did I expect?), the broth is a wonderful deep rusty red, there is a hearty beef taste with a good deal of kick to it, and the vegetable sachet is completely appropriate; loads of spring onion! ...

Mama Instant Rice Noodles Tom Saab Flavour

Well, Maggi week is over (praise Jebus) and this was a nice change of pace; had that spice going on. Flavour-wise, the package claims it's pork (only thing that was in english) but it tasted to me more like a veggie based broth. Spice on spice on spice - this beat my palette around like Chris beat Rhianna - and ...

Maggi Fusian Mi Goreng Hot & Spicy

Not completely shit. That is about the best way I can describe this noodle. While the sesame oil gives this dish a nice mouthfeel, the taste is lacking, there are no vegetable chunks, and even with the visible and plentiful 'chilli flakes' I've seen spicier PG-13 sex scenes. Before it's mixed; look I can see chilli! Good for the spice-shy if ...

Maggi Fusian Korean Spicy Beef

After yesterday I assumed things can only get better; was quite disappointed with Maggi's effort on the Laksa noodles (ramen is clearly not their strong suit...which is quite funny to be honest since they are a noodle company). So today it's their "Spicy Korean Beef"; is it Korean Beef that is spicy? Or is it beef made by a "Spicy ...

Maggi Fusian Laksa

I was excited for this, Maggi being such a reputable instant noodle company and one from my youth, I was excited to try their premium line. I'm not sure if I did it wrong, if maybe my taste buds were broken or what, but I came out from this experience: disappointed. The noodles themselves were good, firm and what I ...

#RAMENLABS – Mama Shrimp Creamy Tom Yum Flavour x Paldo Seafood Noodle Soup

Nongshim Champong Noodle Soup Spicy Seafood Flavour

That noodle block...so glorious Our grand finale to seafood week, this ramen knocked it out of the park with the quality of the noodles and a good show of force with the broth. Just look at those noodles: even before they were rehydrated they looked tasty, and the proof is in the puddin'. The noodles took a while ...

Mama Shrimp Creamy Tom Yum Flavour

I wasn't entirely convinced before opening these up; I always judge a book by its cover and the shiny tinfoil coupled with unoriginal name with questionable word order (Shrimp Creamy Tom Yum Flavour?? Come on guys) had my expectations set very low for these noodles. It also comes with no vegetable sachet (no roughage ...

Samyang Ganchampong

An inviting red mess... Seafood Ramen week for me is a nightmare, I love seafood, but seafood flavoured things are to me the worst. I was pleasantly surprised by these noodles though, the seafood flavour was very mild and more there to add a bit of depth of flavour. I am more partial to ramen that do not have an accompanying broth of liquid ...

Paldo Bul Jjamppong

This broth is certainly striking to the eye, and does little to reassure you that the aftermath will be a pleasant one. However, after overcoming the apprehension, I was pleasantly surprised by the beefy broth, with undertones of squiddy goodness imparted by the freeze-dried squid ...
