Happy (U.S.) Presidents Day! This is the day when we Americans pause to remember the long-past days when we actually had a likeable, effective President or two. To mark the occasion, I probably should have chosen a patriotic, Made-in-the-USA domestic product, but instead I'm taking advantage of the day off to take care of some unfinished noodle business. A while back, I did a pair of reviews of curry-flavored noodles, and this one got left out, so we are finishing the curry trilogy today!
S&B's Golden Curry Mix). In addition to the curry seasoning, there is a nice savory chicken flavor in there as well. There doesn't seem to be any chili heat in this at all, it is strictly a savory, mild flavor.
I am actually quite pleasantly surprised; after the first two curry reviews I think I was expecting another rendition of Thai-style curry, and this turned out to be something altogether different--Japanese curry has practically nothing in common with Thai curry except the name. So while the quality of the noodles are probably on par with normal domestic ramen, the flavor was quite nice and seems fairly unique. I'm looking forward to having this one again sometime! :D
