Wai Wai Beef Casserole Noodles

Published on November 2nd, 2019 Wai Wai

Look at the pictures – that steak was delicious, but I take full credit for that. Noodles were a little overcooked but that’s because I was preoccupied with the steak. This ended up being a really full-flavoured beef broth. But it’s incredibly difficult to review something that takes second stage to that gorgeous steak. All I… [Read More]

Mama Cup Chicken Flavour Noodles

Published on July 20th, 2019 Mama

Good portion of noodles. Amazed that all the water got absorbed – check that fill line! A little bland at the beginning, but a subtle chicken flavour coming through. But salty towards the end. “Textured soy protein”, rather than real chicken. Maybe I’m spoiled by other pot noodles LINK. But they’re really unappetising looking, and… [Read More]

Naked Noodle: The Big One Fiery Chicken Panang Thai Egg Noodles

Published on July 13th, 2019

Given the sheer size of this pot (and the name, “The Big One”, which is a promise it had better well keep), I was disappointed to open the lid and find only a small mound of noodles at the bottom. I had a choice of 3 fill levels depending on how thin I wanted my… [Read More]

Ko-Lee Bang! Bang! Noodles Chicken Feel Good Flavour

Published on June 29th, 2019 Ko-Lee

You know how those Beano and Dandy comics grabbed your eye as a kid? Well, the same trick works on adults, so long as food’s involved. Yes, the packaging is a trifle ‘sudden’, and once I saw the claims of “Feel Good” flavour, I had to give it a go. The prep Battle through the… [Read More]

Tom Yung Goong Spicy Shrimp Soup

Published on June 8th, 2019 Tom Yum Goong

Saw this in my local B&M and had to give it a try. I knew the final product would be a long way off the “serving suggestion” pictured on the lid (they’ve dedicated a whopping 5% of the picture to showing what’s actually in this pot, then slapped a couple of artistically engorged tiger king… [Read More]

You know when you see something on a shelf and you… just don’t know what it is? Most people just keep on walking. Not I. I pick up the packet and shove it in the trolley. Ready Steady Cook! So I have no idea what złoty or łagodna means, but the picture looks fairly innocuous… [Read More]

itsu 3 minute noodle pot Original Thai Flavour

Published on August 2nd, 2013

I couldn’t help licking my fingers after opening the sachet of “heavenly broth paste”, confidently named by the people at itsu. It tasted promising- a strong Thai lemongrass with a chilli kick. Unfortunately, I followed the instructions to the letter, adding boiling water to the suggested fill level. The result is a watery, bland mess…. [Read More]

Morrisons Singapore Chicken Noodles Fresh Ideas

Published on June 12th, 2013

The whole dish is very dry. Thoughtless use of cabbage, which is tough and chewy and does not compliment the meal well. There is a fair quantity of chicken, and the rich, nutty sauce is tasty, even if it mostly evaporates during the cooking process. Expensive for what you get.

Mug Shot Noodles Chinese Style

Published on April 16th, 2013

Looks like tape worm in a mug. Not very appetising. Even after the 5 minute guideline, the noodles are still crunchy. Nice Chinese flavours but a bit weak- though perhaps I added too much water. I had either a massive mug or a tiny mug, and I decided I’d rather be able to fit it… [Read More]

Iceland Snack Pots Sticky Chilli Chicken Noodles

Published on April 4th, 2013

They aren’t kidding with the word “snack”- see the picture to realise the disproportionality between the portion size and the pot it is served in. Do pierce the film lid; I decided to be lazy and peel it back, whereby the sauce exploded all over my microwave. It doesn’t taste bad, but the noodles are… [Read More]
