按照惯例，每一年该网站都会评选出“全球十佳泡面”（TOP TEN INSTANT NOODLES）。
His father took them on a trip to Seattle to visit a large Japanese grocery store. Then, Hans got his first introduction to the world of instant noodles. He recalls,
“I saw lots of different varieties [of noodles] from exotic countries as well and was immediately fascinated.”
The Godfather of Ramen
Since the last The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time list came out , I’ve reviewed 383 different varieties. Let’s have a look at the top ten for 2018 – the finest and most memorable instant noodles I’ve tried.
Gookmul really made their mark with their special lobster variety last year. But I think this eclipses the taste of those by a lot.
The noodles are perfectly chewy and of high quality with a great mouthfeel. What’s amazing about this one is the noodles get ensconced in a luxuriant sauce with lots of real pork – it’s kind of like having barbecue pulled pork noodles and it’s simply delectable and memorable.
The noodles are thin and straight with a very nice chew. The broth is a melange of spicy and milky tonkotsu that had a deep and rich flavor. The heat isn’t so strong you’ll be running for the hills, but it’s respectable insofar as it is spicy but doesn’t overwhelm the underlying tonkotsu flavor.
We start with a thin noodle, one that is not fried but dried in the hot sun – no sun, no noodles.
The flavor is a combination of chilli oil, sesame paste, soy sauce and a dry combo of Sichuan peppercorn hulls and garlic. Finally, the end result is a multi-laye red balance of flavors that harmonize perfectly.
Innovation is something I hold in high regard – I’ve tried almost 3,000 kinds of instant noodles from around the world – new flavors are definitely ones that catch my eye and taste buds. The broth is strong and kind of reminds me of a cross between a Malaysian tom yum crossed with green curry spiciness. It is very tasty.
The noodles are thick and chewy – and while they are wholegrain they aren’t coarse on the chew.
The broth comes from two large sachets – one full of curry paste and one of coconut powder. The richness and depth of flavor here is sensational and delights the palate with flavors that are balanced and superb.
This Malaysian variety catches the eye and delights the senses. A noodle with a great gauge and chew sets the scene. A broth with a nice rich and creamy flavor augmented by coconut milk powder and a special ‘dipping sauce’ that has a sweet and spicy shrimp hit just makes everything so good.
A good level of spiciness is here as well and works with the broth rather than overwhelms it. The broth is thick and oiliness is on point. Rounding things out is a sachet of fried onions – good sized ones that add a very agreeable crunch. Authentic and wonderful.
Its chewy wholegrain noodles are hearty and artisanal – never gritty and just a pleasure to chew with a cosmic mouthfeel.
Moreover, the broth is a combination of a laksa paste sachet which is large and full of premium ingredients. The broth is made fuller and creamy with the second sachet, a large one filled with coconut milk powder.
All in all, if I had only one noodle to eat on a deserted island, this would be the one. it’s just exquisite in taste and to the eye.
