When it comes to instant noodles, there are plenty of options that you can get your hands on in Australia. Today, we’re going to review Nissin Teppan Yakisoba.
The product is similar to the more popular Indomie Mi Goreng in many ways, including the cooking method and the taste. Even though the product is described as “fried noodles”, it is boiled instead of pan-fried. The water is then drained, and the noodles mixed with the soy sauce, seasoning oil and seasoning powder included in the package. The powder contains dried chilli flakes, giving it a spicy touch.
What’s the verdict on the taste? Firstly, the flavour is great – a fantastic mix of sweet, salty and spicy. It’s a bit similar to Indomie, but it doesn’t have that weird aftertaste that you would usually get from eating the Mi Goreng. The texture is also nice and chewy enough. It would be great if other toppings such as dried seaweed or vegetables are included, but the noodle itself is wonderful.
At $0.7-1 per pack, it’s not the cheapest, but it ain’t too bad of a deal. This Nissin variety may be a bit hard to find at mainstream supermarkets – but venture to an Asian mart and you shall find it.
Teppan Yakisoba has 385 calories, which is relatively lower than its other counterparts. However, it also has 1.52 gram of sodium per serving, which accounts for around 30 per cent of WHO’s recommended intake – so, again, enjoy in moderation.
- Great taste
- Reasonable price, although could be a bit cheaper
- Easy to prepare
- Hard to find in mainstream supermarkets
