Nissin Demae Ramen - Beef Flavor

The Nissin Demae Ramen are deceptively large, weighing in at 100g. In general, this brand tends to be milder in flavor than other instant noodles. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because Nissin Demae usually pulls of their flavors pretty well.

Inside this ramen are a seasoning powder and a flavored oil. As expected, the flavor was quite mild, but nice and beefy. There were a lot of noodles, but they were thinner and less flavorful than I would have liked. The taste of the noodles themselves is a little bit mealy, although this effect is very subtle.


I have eaten this ramen so often over the years that it is what I instantly think of when I think about instant noodles. It is fine and basic but nothing particularly special. Nissin Demae is a quality brand of ramen, but I would recommend a more exciting flavor such as Hot & Spicy.

This particular Nissin brand reminds me of the cheap ramen in the U.S.

Demae ramen is better than American nissin top ramen (usually 10 for a buck during a sale at local drug store). For truly disgusting American ramen, ever try Campbell's (yes the canned soup company) ramen? Fortunately it's discontinued. I think demae ramen comes from hk. http://www.nissinfoods.com.hk/02_products/02_index.html
The stewed beef flavor misin is quite good . misin = rice noodle

They haven't received shipments of them stateside in quite in awhile. That's what I gather from asking local asian supermarkets.
