Ve Wong Malaysian Style
I’ve never had Malaysian style noodles before but I was drawn to these because of the design on the package. I don’t know what it says but the splash of blue definitely caught my eye.
After I opened it I started having second thoughts because the packet with the oil kinda seemed like it had gone bad, if thats possible. After I read the ingredients, I decided it was just anise (I’m assuming) and once I added it to the boiling water, it dissolved.
The broth was brown and pretty basic, not spicy. The noodles were nothing special. With nothing else to compare these to, they are average. I would buy these over the basic kinds of instant noodles but if there was something better available, I would pass.
Sorry for the potato pictures, working by trial and error.
Shin Ramyun Noodle Soup
This is honestly one of the better instant noodle packs that is readily available. The broth is good and has a slight spiciness to it, but really isn’t too spicy. The noodles are pretty basic but they are decent for the price.
Nongshim Spicy Miso
Normally I’m not a huge fan of miso soup, but this spicy version was quite satisfying. A good alternative to having just basic instant noodles.
Nongshim Kimchi Old Package
This is the old packaging, I will leave it up because it is kind of interesting.
Mama Tom Yum
I don’t eat a ton of tom yum, but these noodles were good. I would be interested in trying it with some coconut milk in it. Also seems like it would be better if you added some fresh ingredients.
Holy wow! I do not know if it was because I had a hang over when I made these or what. These were some seafood flavored noodles! It was almost so much flavor and smell that it was too much… The noodles were good though.
This is pretty much the most basic kind of instant noodle you could have. Noodles aren’t very good, and the flavoring is nothing to write home about. Unless you are going to add other things to this, there is no reason to bother.
Maruchan Chili Low Sodium
Nothing to see here. I was curious to try the less sodium, but really theres not much of a difference otherwise.
Maruchan Chicken Low Sodium
This is pretty much the cheapest instant noodle that money can buy. It shows by how it tastes, which is like cheap ramen. Pass.
Lucky Me Chow Mein
Okay this is crazy but it really does taste like chow mein, but not that much like good chow mein. It is pretty basic and the sauce packet seems kind of slimey, but it cooks out okay. I could see making this better by even just adding that basic can of chow mein vegetables that is pretty cheap.
Nongshim Real Kimchi
This is definitely one of the better and easier instant noodles you can find. I like this one because it comes with a little packet with kimchi! I am a sucker for kimchi but the noodles and broth are also pretty good.
If I was feeling stuffed up and wanted something that I knew was going to be satisfying, I would grab a package of these noodles.
Nongshim Soon Veggie
The noodles are basic and so is the broth, not spicy at all. I can see this being something that could be used as a base but you would need to add some stuff to make it good.
