In today’s instant ramen review, we will check out something from Taiwan, the Uni-President Sesame Oil Chicken Flavor Instant Thin Noodles (Chinese: 統一大補袩麻油雞風味細麵). We’ve done quite a few Uni-President reviews in the past and generally they make really good quality stuff. As such, we’ve got really high hopes for today’s sample.
We start off our review with the usual photos of the bowl and its contents.
The contents of the bowl are shown below.
The bowl contains the noodle block, a sachet of seasoning oil, a sachet of seasoning paste and a garnish pack.
Preparation is quite straighforward. Just empty the contents of the sachets into the bowl and pour in sufficient boiling water. Cover the cup and let the noodles steep for 3 minutes. Stir well before serving. Given how good the noodles looked, we only added some coriander as additional garnish.
The wheat flour noodles here are thinner than regular instant ramen noodles. Despite the small diameter, the noodles were not soggy after rehydrating and kept a decent bite to them. The broth is a very light chicken flavored broth that’s infused with sesame oil. There was also a dash of alcohol, perhaps rice wine, in the broth that added a pleasant sour kick.
The garnish pack contained chicken meat, ginger, cabbage and wolfberries. All of which complemented the broth very well.
Overall we are very satisfied with the Uni-President Sesame Oil Chicken Flavor Instant Thin Noodles. We give it a final score of zero chilis and 4 stars. We’re definitely on the lookout for more samples from Uni-President in the future.
