Nissin Bowl Noodles Rich & Savory Beef Flavor
Tools Required: Microwave, Spoon
Meal Size (440 calories per package)
(available online through Amazon.com)
Today's noodle is another domestic product--what can I say, I haven't been to Uwajimaya in a while. I'm trying out one of Nissin's "Bowl Noodles" products, which look to be a heartier offshoot of their Cup Noodles. The package mentions that these are "Spoonable Noodles," so presumably that means we won't need chopsticks or a fork to eat these, just our spoon. Something about the packaging makes me expect a western-style flavor, so we'll see what we have.
There is definitely nothing Asian about this product, so it's not really ramen at all; if you were expecting a heartier version of their beef Cup Noodles, I imagine it would be a disappointment, or at least a surprise. If you go into it with the right expectations, though, it really is a pretty good bowl of beef & noodle soup. I approve. :)
