Nissin - HK- Sesame Nissin - HK- Sesame Cooked

Review: These Nissin ramen are licensed by Nissin Japan, and while the quality is good, it doesn’t compare to the original. The noodle cake looks a lot different with thinner strands, but the bonus of having two sachets; one containing regular seasoning and the other sesame oil, tries to make up for it. Once the sesame oil hits the boiling water, a strong scent emanates from the pot. Having sesame as a main flavour is a unique and works well.

The noodles are definitely not up to par when compared to Nissin Japan. The thinner strands mean that not as much flavour can be absorbed into them, hence they don’t carry much taste. The broth consists of a strong sesame flavour with high soy overtones, it didn’t seem as though the chicken powder was strong enough and was drowned out by the previous two ingredients. I also would expect more dried vegetables, as there is very little green onion flakes in the soup base. Overall it is a quality ramen, however there are far better choices in the market.
