Spicy!!
Really spicy!
Up there with a Bombay Bad Boy, in the amount of heat you can feel clawing it's way down your throat.

The flavour is. Um.. not sure.
The thing says Chicken, but I wouldn't say it's chicken'y.

Rating : 5/5 - Who cares about the flavour when there's this much spice. Mmm...

Noodle Six



These descriptions are getting a little lacklustre, aren't they!!?



Looks Like...



Tastes Like...

An odd mechanical taste to the noodles, and the broth is very oniony.
There are quite a lot of the little meaty blobs in there, and they're really quite tasty, but the oniony broth isn't going well with it.

Rating : 2/5 - quite meaty, but not enough to make the onion taste worthwhile.

Noodle Eight. The end of January





Looks Like..



Tastes Like...

A drained noodle lives or dies on the oiliness of the included sachet of oil.
In this case, I've ended up with the NoodleBrain clumped mass, and it isn't exactly "slurping" very well.

Taste wise, there's a little bit of a spice kick, but the actual flavour is that strong Worcester sauce flavour that seems to be occurring frequently in these noodles.

Rating : 4/5 - a little too dry, but otherwise flavourful enough.

Looks Like...



Tastes Like..

A very wine'ish smell coming from the broth.
A rather salty taste... this whole month's theme is "Shoyu" (Soy Sauce) so I imagine there's a lot of salty noodles, coming up.
The mushroom taste is also really quite pronounced. There's very much a "cream of mushroom soup" vibe going on..

Rating : 4/5 - I'm not actually a fan of mushroom soup, but this was alright.

Hmm..
The March/April box has just arrived, and it now contains only 7 noodles.

When I subscribed it was 9.. And yet I'm still paying the same price?!
Nah, don't think so.

I won't be renewing the subscription, so once the current subscription's done, that'll be all the noodles done with.


I've got the Feb one, and this is the next one, then there should be one after that, too.. If I've counted these right!!

It's extraordinarily oniony!!
It tastes quite a lot like Pickled Onion Monster Munch, but with a strange tomato-like tang to it, too.

You know when you walk past the Fish Market, and the smell makes you glad you don't ever go INTO the Fish Market?
Smells exactly like that..

The broth is .. yyeeeuuck!!!

I've not given up on many of these noodles, but today is one of those days.
Cheese Butties for me.

Tastes Like..

Scary fishy things!!
There's a strong combination of Smokey Bacon and Prawn Cocktail crisps..
The little shrimp things tasted exactly like you'd expect. Fishy, and kinda crunch, and .. eeeuwww!!

Other than those, however, it was more the smokey taste that proved to be more prominent, and the broth was quite tasty, with the noodles doing a lot of flavour-soaking.

Rating : 4/5 - Only one little thing let it down.. .. and there were 3 or 4 of the little buggers.
