The end of an era.

Noodle Nine



Looks Like...
> Reveal 🔎

Tastes Like...
A rather bland taste. Either that or my tastebuds are dead...!
I was hoping that final noodle in the box would’ve been exciting, but it isn’t.
Not even the slightly thicker noodles can save this one.

Rating : 0/5 boring and dull.. A sad end to a fun box.

So there we have it.
A trek through Japan, tasting a variety of noodles.

It was ok.
A little lacking in spice, though. But I guess that’s the different themes they do.
Going to have to hope for a Spicy box, next month!!!

Yeah, there's no point in bland, insipid foodstuffs. Give me flavour. Give me spice. Give me excitement. I want to feel that there's a party going off in my mouth and I'm actually invited!

So these boxes are monthly then? Hopefully the next one will be better

I subscribed to 6 months worth.. which wasn’t cheap. I don’t like paying in advance for things like this, so hopefully it was worth it, and I don’t end up not getting one, or something..
Hmmm..

In the battle for money vs sense vs boredom vs Noodles.... Insanity wins!!

Noodle One

Tastes Like...

You’re probably thinking "hey, Jay, WTF are those little cats..?"
So was I.
I expected a weird slimy thing, but it was more like a meaty texture. Maybe Tofu or Soya or something? No idea.

As for the overall taste of the noodles, they smelt EXTREMELY fishy, but the taste was more that of the sheer insane amount of pepper that must've been in there.
By the time I got to the slurpy soupy bit, it felt like I was drinking liquid pepper.
Not a complaint, though, as it actually tasted really quite nice, and left only a mild fishy aftertaste.

Rating 5/5! Really enjoyable, with tasty cats!!!

Noodle Two

Tastes Like...

Very oniony.
My Post-op tastebuds aren’t very keen on Onion, and this is the wrong side of the "too oniony" fence, for my liking!!
Also, those noodles are horrible and .. the description says they’re not fried, but they barely taste like they’re fully cooked at all! They have the same chewiness that not quite cooked pasta does.

Additionally the whole thing was very very soupy, and left a whole lot of drinkable onion soup at the end.
Really didn’t enjoy this one.

Rating : 1/5 - At least it was different.. :/

Looks a bit dish-watery, but I'd give it a go. I'm not over keen on onions, either, but hey-ho.

Noodle Three

Tastes Like...

Chicken soup with tons of pepper in it.
That’s three rather peppery tasting noodles, so far. Seems to be the theme, this month.
Not so keen on all the cabbage, but otherwise it's a nice enough broth.
Also, the noodles, although thin, are still managing to soak up a lot of the flavour, so extra points for that!

*big gulp of pepper, right at the end of the slurping session*

Rating : 3/5 - Another good noodle, but could’ve done without all the cabbage.
