Was given a packet of Nissin Demae Ramen Bar Noodle Aka Tonkotsu Flavour Instant Noodle 出前一丁棒丁麵 from a friend.

Inside, there is a plastic tray which protects the noodle from breakage with two sachets of broth powder.
IMG_20170806_185924.jpg

The instructions instruct you to boil the noodles and broth separately by adding the broth powder to the bowl.

The sachet of spicy sauce is added last.

I was quite impressed by these noodles because the broth was thick just like the broths you get at ramen joints.
The spicy sauce was very hot so I only used half a sachet.

I love trying new things so I was really excited about this Hokkaido ZomRamen because the noodles and broth are blue according to the Hong Kong distributor [Booth 1D-A30 by Red Gold HK 獨家食品香港總經銷] at the 2017 HKTDC Food exhibition.

IMG_20170812_183001.jpg

Inside the pack, there is a sachet of liquid sauce, blue noodles and a leaflet.

IMG_20170812_154018.jpg

It is interesting that the broth sachet is blue liquid and not the usual powder.
IMG_20170812_154436.jpg

Anyway, to cook, you have to use 600ml of water which I thought was too much at first but then the noodles do absorb the water.

VID_20170812_15520_2411.jpg
IMG_20170812_155219.jpg

After they become soft, you add the blue concentrated broth liquid which I tried and it was evidently quite strong so it comes out right when added to the water.

20728832_1414705831977753_868369263953707247_o.jpg

With its unusual blue appearance it actually tastes like any other ramen.
IMG_20170812_160143.jpg

There was a strong alkaline smell when I was cooking it but you can't taste it when you eat it.

I am so glad I tried Ricci's Bikkies Cinnamon sugar from the 2017 HKTDC Food exhibition distributed by Red Gold HK 獨家食品香港總經銷 at Booth 1D-A30.

Pita bread is normally soft and eaten with dips like hummus etc but this is crisp and sweet with cinnamon and sugar.
I found them really addictive and delicious because I love cinnamon and sugar.
The texture is quite different because they are totally crispy which make them ideal served with icecream but now I want to try them with sweet hummus from the UK.
IMG_20170810_194527.jpg
There is a close up so you can see they really are pita breads!

Recently discovered this Instant yoghurt drink called Yogur Train at the food expo because of the colorful packaging.
There are many flavours: original, banana, mango and cheese.

IMG_20170727_155927.jpg

Frankly the cheese yoghurt sounds strange but then I haven't tried it.

I got the original which comes in a box of six sachets.

IMG_20170806_151042.jpg

IMG_20170806_151417.jpg
IMG_20170806_151410.jpg

The instant yoghurt drinks are made by mixing 120ml of mix with one sachet of Yogur Train.
IMG_20170806_151053.jpg

The milk normally comes in 2xx ml cartons so it was a bit troublesome to measure out half so I decided to mix a whole carton and a sachet which turned out really good and the sweetness was just right.

As a food lover, I found out about Cheeky Boy Sauces from Instagram and was honoured to try their tantalizing saucy sauces.

Cheeky Boy Sauces are independent producers of a range of fresh tasting, delicious, all natural sauces and dips created by an adventurer and a food lover, and are beautifully made in Britain.[quoted from their website.]

At the moment they have three stylish sauces:

HRH sauce, L!MEY and Berlin49.

19227853_760035197502326_8425125143390453760_n.jpg

For more details and pairings please see:
http://cheekyboysauces.com/sauces/

Having tried all three, I loved them because they are different and complex.
+++++++++
To summarize HRH sauce is gingery.
19380062_1824835634499098_1973479842640822272_n.jpg
I felt that it paired well with Asian food especially Hainan chicken because you normally get ginger puree sauce with it and HRH is much better since it has more dimension to it.
+++++++++
L!MEY is very refreshingly limey and great pairing with greasy fatty meats like roast suckling pig!!!!
19121166_464229507261209_6309772429199671296_n.jpg
L!MEY at MongKok!!
19424875_440130796359529_2519924000520404992_n.jpg

+++++++++
Berlin49 was actually quite complex, there was a BBQ smell when you opened the bottle but when you actually taste it, there is a spicy curry kick followed by a fiery smokey chili aftertaste that lingers shortly.
It was definitely good paired with meats, fried stuff that has a flour or some form of coating that needs something strong and punchy.
19379313_230855317407655_3734755899625963520_n.jpg

You always get a sachet of sauce inside Potnoodle so it is definitely legit to add sauce to it.
I decided to be #cheeky and purposely chose Cheeky Boy Sauces' BERLIN49 for Bombay Bad Boy which made the curry taste more intense because the sauce has a smokey curry taste to it.
The sachet of hot sauce they give you in the pot noodles are mega hot so I advise trying it before putting it in.
20246026_1422511967783844_4441969188429569117_n.jpg
As with all sauces, I believe you should try and see what it tastes like before using it for best results.

#THANKYOU for all the fun #cheekyboysauces

Tried Nissin Cup Noodles Rich Abalone & Oyster Stew Flavour which is part of their luxury range launched for Cup Noodle’s 45th anniversary.


The Rich Abalone & Oyster Stew Flavour tasted like noodles in a rich Chinese oyster sauce but nicer and it had pieces of oyster mushrooms and black fungas.

The thing I didn't like was how oily my lips were after eating it and the broth became like gel when it cooled down.

Other flavours in this series are: Luxury Shark Fin cupnoodle and Softshell Turtle cupnoodle which were both really good.

As well as a restaurant foodie, I am addicted to cup noodles and instant noodles.
Came across these noodles by Taiwanese celebrity star ShuQi which are noodles tossed in sauce.
There are two flavours: Sichuan noodles or Scallion noodles.

IMG_20170716_153116.jpg

IMG_20170716_153146.jpg

Tried both and they were fantastic because you get quality noodles that are served in restaurants and not unhealthy typical instant noodles.

They are too easy to cook, boil until the desired softness and toss the noodles with the sauce provided and they are ready to eat.
IMG_20170716_154509.jpg

Personally I preferred the scallion but the Sichuan one is quite spicy yet fragrant.
It is good how the chili seasoning is in a separate sachet.

I love black cherries so when Hartley's launched the NEW Black Cherry Jelly, I got my hands on some from the supermarket.

IMG_20170624_140328.jpg

IMG_20170624_180217.jpg

You make them in the normal way by adding boiling water and stirring it until it dissolves then refrigerating it.

The taste of this black cherry jelly was really good and the black cherry flavouring was not too artificial.

You either love or hate durian.
In my case, I love durian but they are big and difficult to open that I can never finish a whole one to myself.
Discovered these cute mini durians so I got one for fun.

IMG_20170620_214314.jpg

It took a few days to ripe and it cracked open naturally so I opened it effortlessly.

IMG_20170624_221317.jpg

The durian meat was sweet and delicate so I loved it but the one I got wasn't developed properly so it only had two sides with flesh inside.

Previously tried the Festive Bakewells by Mr Kipling and they were addictive so this time I got the Trifle bakewells.

IMG_20170618_215727_1.jpg


The Trifle bakewell has a layer of raspberry and plum jam topped with custard topping.
IMG_20170618_215700.jpg

At first, it was quite sweet but then you get accustomed to it and the custard topping texture was a bit sugary like icing.
IMG_20170618_215941.jpg

IMG_20170618_220122.jpg

There is a slight almond aftertaste and these are great with tea or coffee but I think tea is better.

I really liked this can of All Day Breakfast by Morrisons because there was black pudding inside it.

IMG_20170701_191244.jpg

The baked beans were tasty too infused with a sausage and black pudding taste with a hint of herbs from the Cumberland sausage.
The interesting thing is that on the product description it doesn't mention Cumberland sausages but they are Cumberland in the Full product description.
IMG_20170701_191255.jpg

Although it was a little bit too salty, the sausages and bacon egg bites were actually tasty and the texture was good compared to other brands I have tried.
In the can, I found, two pieces of black pudding, two sausages and some bacon bites which I can't remember how many were there.

To be honest the cheese taste was a little different to what I was expecting but it tasted like the rind of Brie cheese.

Anyway, I love Pot Noodles however I wish they could change the lid material from foil because it gets pierced easily.
The lid some how got pierced on the way home so I don't know if that would have affected the taste of the Cheese.

Got these Doll fried noodle seafood oyster sauce flavour with shrimp roe Instant noodle 公仔蝦子蠔油海鮮味炒麵 which had a bright yellow lid with holes for draining the water.


The ones I have seen before come in a square PFC box but I think the design of this one is better for draining water.
This flavour was quite unique because there was a sachet of dried prawn roe to mix it.

 Step 1: add hot water and cover with lid
IMG_20170601_011703.jpg
  Step :2 Drain the water when the noodles are soft.

 Step 3: add the sachets of dried prawn roe and oyster sauce

 Step 4: Shake the noodles with the lid on:

 Step 5: give it a final stir and eat
IMG_20170601_012958.jpg

The taste of the noodles were a bit too sweet for my liking and also quite salty but a fun experience because you have to shake it.

Video of the Bacon, Macaroni and Cheese toastie:


I was surprised to see the toasties so decided to try it.
IMG_20170615_165238.jpg

There was cheese, sweetcorn with mushroom or the Bacon, Macaroni and Cheese toastie.
The sweetcorn would probably taste sweet and weird so I went for the bacon one.
bacon.jpg

The whole thing was quite nice and not too cheesy because the cheese inside is the gooey processed cheese similar to squeezy cheese sauce.
The bacon was a little bit thick and hard but the macaroni was spring and al dente.

[McDonalds, Hong Kong]
Loaded fries with bacon and cheese.

The fries tasted quite nice because of the coarse salty bacons bits but the cheese sauce tasted more like burger sauce with cheese flavouring added to it.

VitaVitasoy has launched two new drinks in the calci-plus series.


The new Coconut Hi-Calcium healthy drink and Almond Hi-Calcium healthy drink are both low in sugar, cholesterol free and high in calcium.

++++++++
Almond Hi-Calcium healthy drink:
IMG_20170509_010000.jpg
The almond is light with a lovely nutty taste and not that sweet just how it is as advertised.
It is said to be good for the skin and cardio.
++++++++
Coconut Hi-Calcium healthy drink:
IMG_20170509_005930.jpg
The coconut is comparatively sweeter than the almond but not that sweet.
I liked it because you could taste the coconut while the taste is not too milky.
According to the carton, it is said to help in weight management.

Tried this new milky soda drink by schweppes.

18341901_1320951114686559_7733307582160382135_n.jpg

Unfortunately, I didn't like it because the taste was weird, if you like Japanese calpis then this is for you.
The labelling says "lactic flavoured' so I should have guessed it was similar to CALPIS!!
