Lucky Me Brand Instant Miso Udon Noodles

btw I always associate tempura with the light batter that's used to deep fry meat and veg and not with noodle dishes, it don't really have no flavor of it's own...strange that they would have this to be a noodle flavoring...

Me too!  I didn't know what to expect when I opened it and the flavor surely didn't in any way remind me of tempura!

I never tried the tempura flavor but there was this other flavor something like nasty dirty river noodles that was seriously nasty. That one totally disappeared.

Nothing to do about Lucky Me but a while ago I was in Tesco looking for something different in the noodle section, possibly dried Japanese Udon or soba noodles.  I didn't find either, but on the bottom shelf I found Vietnamese thick noodles.  They are not instant and take about 20 minutes to cook, but if cooked with a good chicken stock they are great.   They are about 1/2 meter long and the only way to eat them is to pick up the  bowl and put a couple in your mouth and slurp away.  Kinda reminds me of living in Japan where after a night of drinking to much sake and beer you stopped at the local soba shop. I think that the challenge was to try to not fall off the stool and make the most noise as you slurped away.

packaged vietnamese pho perhaps? sounds interesting, all I've been able to find locally is instant ramen in a million different flavorings...gonna havta look more closely next time I go up to the big tescos at the changwat...

 

if I do a noodle stir fry using the 1m long dried yellow noodles I usually cut them up with scissors after cooking separately before stir frying with the other ingredients and the sauce to make them more managable in the wok, otherwise they're impossible to work with...

 

I am reckless in the name of common culinary necessity...but what is asian tradition if not for westerners to brutally trample in their clumsy attempts to adapt?

Well things have progressed and apparently Lucky Me's marketing ploy turned out to have not worked all that well.

 

The only flavor I can find now (and not always) is the Tom Yum, which I really don't like that.

 

Haven't seen the Miso flavor in over a month and when I did they were near expiring indicating it was the end of the road.

 

Pattaya stores I've seen these noodles at:

Foodland, Big C, Central Festival

Yeah, I went to Tesco a couple of days ago and there were only three nags left, asll Tom Yum and I bought them.  I don't like any of the flavours so I make my own.  I always have chicken broth so I put a little chicken broth in a pot, some soy, a couple of packets of chillis in fish sauce and the condiment package.  I bring that to a rapid boil and drop in an egg stirring it around ( egg drop soup)  I then drop in the noodles stirring until it comes to a boil.  Tastes great and you can add other condiments such as shrimp, bacon, etc.  I do the same with the udon noodles that are sometimes available in the refrigerated section, but the Lucky Me noodles are better.

I even looked for their noodles on Lazada but they didn't have them. I would order a case of them if there was a way to order.

I once found them on either Shopee or Lazada in a lot of different flavours like adobo and then realized that I was on the Philippines website.

from this thread I got to lookin' at the loose noodles in the refrigerated section at tescos and started to experiment a bit, started with green leafy veges in garlic then added the loose noodles with an oyster sauce mixture and tossed a bit...not half bad...tonight thought of simmering a chicken breast in with garlic with a 'lobo' green curry packet with eggplant then adding the loose  noodles, worth a try...

 

'hey tutsi! let's go surfin'!'...'you guys go on ahead, I gotsta look after me noodles...'
