Today is another Noodle Day--I am home waiting for our new appliances to be delivered! I am pretty excited; the last time I had brand-new appliances was when I got a brand-new house that came with them, and that was quite a few years ago. Because I don't want to get a bunch of cookware dirty right before installing a new cookstove, I am going to have this Bowl Noodle I picked up last time I was at Uwajimaya. I hadn't heard of the brand before, but the flavor sounded interesting so I thought I'd see how they were!
I have to say, I really enjoyed this! I liked the use of the retort pouch to include some actual meat toppings in the product, and I thought the flavor was very interesting. I like that it is spicy in a different way than just adding chili powder for heat like so many other ramen products. The serving size is quite generous too, so it makes a good meal without having any chips or sides to go with. I wish I had gotten other flavors to try too! I guess it will give me something to look for next time I go noodle shopping. :D
UPDATE: The last time I saw this in the store (after my experience with the TVP Curry 'Chicken' flavor), I checked the ingredients list and saw that there was in fact no actual duck meat included in this product. I'm unsure whether this is a change, or if the TVP 'meat' was just that much better in this one. Maybe someday I'll build the courage to find out.
