Best instant noodles?

48 replies

ImFree2doasiwant · 20/10/2020 20:49

I know, they're generally junk but I used to love a bowl of chicken super noodles. I saw a post a while back about hoodies, tried a couple of packs but they were lacking.

Any recommendations?

Koka noodles. Spicy stir fry and Tom Yam (I think that’s the one it’s a pink packet) are the best noodles ever. Both very spicy but very delicious. They’re about 29p a packet in home bargains.

Best instant noodles?

Ko Lee noodle pots are my guilty pleasure Blush

Koka listed above are easy to find, cheap and really delicious if you like ‘soup’ noodles.
Soba pot noodles (Tesco etc) are pretty tasty, though Japanese inspired flavours only.

The best are Mi Goreng (indomie brand, original flavour). But they are crack noodles, so you’ve been warned.

Thanks! Just had some "Kolee", bland, watery, disappointing!

I love the Nissin instant noodles. Best is the black garlic one but can be hard to find

@rottiemum88 cross posted! The Kolee ones I had were in a packet, not a pot.

I came here to say Koka noodles too. They're delicious!

Without a doubt the worst I've had were Tesco's own brand. Any one had those? They were disgusting!

Nissin Soba pot noodles are lush. You tip the water out once they're done cooking so they're not all sloppy like other pot noodles. Best instant noodles ever.

I’ve tried the cheaper ones and always go back to chicken and mushroom super noodles.

I was coming to say Nissin Soba too, especially the Teriyaki flavour!

Or if you want spicy, Shin Cup. But they're more like a soup.

Koka noodles, my guilty pleasure.
Probably so so unhealthy but they are so tasty.

Nissin ramen, the green packet is nice as are the beef, and sesame ones. The spicy ones are all really bloody hot though!

Nissin ramen are very good IMHO

Indo mie are amazing! www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/293459118

They have more texture than a lot of instant noodles and are delicious

Without a doubt, it's Indomie Mi Goreng!

These two. I can’t remember why but we had a family taste test of instant noodles one weekend, possibly boredom, and tried loads of brands. The cheap chicken one (Koka, Maggi) and the Nissin ones scored way higher than all the premium brands.

The Tiger noodles in a pot. They used to do a Thai curry inspired one which was pretty addictive.

Ok, my line up, in order,
Nissin pot, chicken then teryaki followed by nissin packet, sesame flavour.
Ko-lee pots, chicken then spicy. Don't even bother with the vegetable flavour.
Koka noodles, chicken. Recently found them in a pot version, great. Used to LOVE supernoodles but don't rate them since they changed the recipe. Hated soba pot noodles, bizzarely as I really really love noodles lolol Nissin pots are cheaper in amazon than supermarket but aisian supermarket much cheaper again than amazon.

Nong shim if you can find them. So good. Spicy.

Ooooh love this thread. Really appreciate a cheap noodle. Not an ounce of nutrition in them Grin another vote for Koka Spicy noodles, 29p in Home Bargains. Also partial to the chicken & mushroom pot noodle occasionally
