There's more savoury than sweetness by the look of things. And squid. And octopus. I'm sooo looking forward to these, knowing my love of all things fishy. Not!

Is this the final box?
I can't remember..
A next-box hasn't turned up, so it may very well be.

April/May 2019

(CBA doing a group shot)

Cheat Sheet Side One - Side Two

Noodle One





Looks Like..



Mum : "Eeuw, that smells horrible... Don't eat that!"

Tastes Like..

The little black sardines are .. chewy.. and .. eeeeeuwww!!
.. Unless those were mushroom?
Either way, eeeuuuwww!!

The rest of it wasn't too bad, though. A nice aftertaste, which is unusual for something so fishy.
The noodles were all kinda scraggly and in little bits, though, rather than larger stringy noodles.
Booo!

Rating : 3/5 - Had better.

Fish, mushrooms and pork? What a dosgustingly odd combo. Bleurgh!!

@Jay: Can you add a vomit smiley? It'll come in handy with all these ramen and Japanese foodstuffs!

?

Damn, that was NOT an easy task! Think I might rewrite the way I do smilies..
Actually, could probably also do with upping the res of the smilies, in general.

April/May Noodle Two





Looks Like...



Drowned Noodles. Might've added too much water!

Tastes Like...

IIRC, previous "golden bowl" noodles have been that nice Golden Vegetable Soup soup, but this one's much more meaty.
The soup is really nice and has a slight Oxo taste to it, but is also remarkably oily. .. like kinda a bit too sickly, kinda oily..
Bah..
The noodles are slipping off the fork as I try to spin them around to pick them up!!
They're also kinda chewy. Not tasteless, though. They've done a lot of soakage, but they're still kinda touch and chewy.

Rating : 4/5 - Could do with a bit less oil!

April/May - Noodle Three





Looks Like...



Tastes Like...

Smells very garlicky... and indeed tastes that way, too.
It's the nice "garlic bread from the pizza place" garlic, rather than the overly strong garlic taste that you get when cooking fresh garlic.

The noodles are super thin, but have done an exceptional job of soaking up the garlic flavour.



The broth is also quite garlicky, but also has the nice woody taste from the mushrooms.

Rating : 5/5 - I really did enjoy this one!

... nom nom nom!!!

Rating : 2/5 - alright, but .. just salt, really...

The Japanese definitely seem to love their food sweet and/or salty.

Three to go.
Our journey is nearly over.

April/May - Noodle Five





Looks Like..



Tastes Like...

... Beer...?
There's a little spicy kick to it, but..
... yeah, beer. Definitely tastes of beer!!

Rating : 3/5 - I'm not really a Beer drinker, to be honest.

TWO....

April/May Noodle Six





Looks Like...



Tastes Like...

The broth is quite salty, but not as salty as the one a little while back.
The noodles have plenty of flavour to them, and are nice and soft, yet also chewy.

Rating : 4/5 - The flavour is rather bland overall, but otherwise it's a good noodle.

Sounds OK. Not overly keen on sesame flavour, but as long as it's not too pronounced.

The Final Noodle





Looks Like...



Unsurprisingly, it looks dry!!

Super Sexy Action Shot

Tastes Like..

Has a Worcestershire Sauce vibe going on. Slightly tomatoey, but with a nice spicy kick to it, too.
The noodles are rather thin, but are still nice and firm.

Rating : 5/5 - A pleasant ending.
