She forgot…

My girl bought some instant ramen once and she was praising it to the skies and of course, she finished it in no time at all. I remember the packet was white but she went and bought another pack, the packets were black. Unfortunately, this time around, it was kind of disappointing – the one she bought earlier was sold out.

Well, the mum came home from the supermarket at the mall near our house one day with these…

Nissin Ramen

…and I thought they looked like those that my girl bought once. I asked her if those were the ones she bought before but she said she could not remember.

This is a Singapore product but made in Indonesia and inside, you will find the noodles and three sachets…

Nissin Ramen, noodles & sachets

– one with the seasoning, another with the oil and the last one with some dried garnishing.

I chose the white and red packet to try – the Tokyo Shoyu – premium bonito blend and once cooked, I served it with some char siew I had in the fridge and paper-thin dried seaweed sheets…

…for a more authentic Japanese touch and garnished it with some chopped spring onion from my garden. LOL!!! It turned out that there were some minute slices of narutomaki alongside some dried spring onion in the sachet with the garnishing…and other than that, this one’s probably fish (bonito) flavoured.

I sat down to eat and I must say I was impressed. It was very nice! A tad salty for me though (especially since we hardly eat much salt and msg at home) so I would want to add more water next time…or use only half of the sachet of seasoning. I’d most probably do the former since I thought the soup was very nice.

  1. Wow! You added the char siew and seaweed and it looks so nice, nicer than those sold in restaurants. With those added ingredients, definitely will taste very delicious!

    Thanks for the compliment! I was thinking of adding an onsen egg too but I was too lazy to cook. In the end, I decided to do without it.

  2. That bowl of noodles looks absolutely great. Your presentation with the added ingredients and garnishing brings it out to another new level. Yummy!!!!….πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹. I bet it takes quite a bit of time to boil the noodles as it looks so firm.

    No, pretty much the same as usual unlike a Korean one I bought a long time ago…or pasta – that takes like forever!

    I did not cook the add-on’s in the soup so the taste was more or less original and it was very nice.

  3. Used to buy charsiew from the pasar tani but since it closed down for months due to Covid-19 I did not have supply of char siew at home. Use it in fried rice and fried noodle. Hardly in instant noodle soup.

    The ladies in the house do not like char siew, my girl is not a fan of its sweetness so I will buy and eat myself or keep and use as topping for my noodles for breakfast in the morning, dry or soup. It is a topping…NOT an ingredient so I do not boil it in the soup. Same as the kampua mee soup aka ching th’ng mee here in Sibu – you cook the noodles and place the meat in top, prior to serving.

  4. The instant noodle was normal…but your cooking, the ingredients and the garnish…make the bowl of noodle looks so much tastier. πŸ™‚

    Not quite normal, Singapore product…a lot more expensive. Thankfully, it was very nice, worth the price.

  5. Those are my favourite instant ramen, almost tastes like the real thing

    You have these over there? I’ve not had a lot of ramen at Japanese restaurants here but I actually enjoyed these more.

  6. Drooling at your ramen with added toppings of char siew and seaweed, i think i saw these ramen packs selling in our supermarket.

    I’m sure you did. They’re products of Singapore…but made in Indonesia.

  7. Instant noodles are such a convenience. So nice when you dress them up with extras.

    I have the tendency to add a little something everytime, will make those packet noodles more palatable…and not all carbs.
