    Could you get curry?
    It's easy to make curry udon if you have curry.

    Found some obscure chinese brand while in Chennai a couple of months back. The mushroom flavoured one cooked soup style was the best I've ever had. Took me quite a while to realise it was the MSG that did it. I didn't think supermarkets were allowed to stock products with MSG in them.

    I had a Korean rice cake and dumpling soup a while back with loads of MSG in it. I don't know why they bothered, it made it taste like crap. Although the old bint who made it wasn't wearing gloves, so maybe it wasn't the MSG.

    Yum Yum brand Tom Yum has been my favourite for a while now. Only in the cup though, doesn't seem to taste the same out of the packet for some reason. Second from left, top row:



    Fan of Mi Goreng as well but I'm not sure how you could eat it with broth, surely would dilute the flavour too much. The thai soup with the flat noodle things that curl up when you cook them are pretty awesome too, brand name escapes me atm.

    Some good flavours there - if I'm sure I can get to enjoy it a long time, the bottom right most is my fave...

    Yeah, too much MSG overwhelms every other flavour in the mix. I think the dilution helped.

    One thing that's always puzzled me is 'oriental'. What flavour is this extraordinarily vague title intended to represent?

    Get some Sharwood's 4 minute noodles, boil, drain, plunge into iced water.

    Heat some oil in a wok until smoking, stir fry the noodles for a couple of minutes until they start to colour slightly, remove. Throw some assorted veg into the wok (mushrooms, pepper, carrot, ginger, garlic) into the wok, stir fry until cooked, throw the noodles back in, add soy sauce, stir to coat evenly, serve.

    Takes about 15 minutes including prepping the veg, much tastier than the processed crap which passes for instant noodles.

    Not a huge fan of instant noodles tbh. Way too many long train rides in China with nothing else to eat. FTR though, if you're hungry, some noodles on some bread with peanut butter doesn't taste anywhere near as bad as you'd think. I found that what you really want for those long train rides is instead an instant rice meal (something kinda like this) - you get a packet of rice and a packet of meat + sauce. Add boiling water to the rice and cover it with the first lid, put the meat and sauce packet on top of that and then put on the second lid and wait a few minutes. The rice heats up and expands, the meat and sauce heats up, pour it over and eat it. Actually fills you up.
