Lidl here had a wonderful serious sale on all kinds of Asian things. Not gonna lie, I went berserk. I love Lidl for this, with some cut-arounds, you can fit things into the food budget.
I hate cooking, and I’m happy with anything someone else cooks for me. I prefer cooking instant noodles for myself, that’s all. Snagged three of these, they were .79eu, so on the pricey side of cup noodles. But since there were only three flavors, I figured I’ll splurge this once. On ramen, yes.
So now, on to the good stuff. How it’s made and what’s it like.
The cup is plastic and will burn your fingers. I put it in a bowl before I put water in it. Inside there’s thin noodles, and powder already applied to them. A line indicates to where you gotta pour hot water. Mix well, because it does the thing those insta-cup-soups do – it clumps like hell.
After 5 minutes you get this brownish green thing they call “Hoi Sin Style Duck Flavored & Vegetables“. And while it looks ugly and swampy, it’s actually quite spicy and delicious, and fills you up better than a lot of other instant noodles I tried in the past. So, yes, it’s worth the almost 80 cents.
5/5, will eat again. When I don’t feel like .79eu is too much for a cup of noddles. Because it is. It is a very small meager meal. I learned it may be “cheap“, but volume isn’t proportional to the price, so whenever trying to save on food, you must think how many meals per your buck you’re getting. If it’s one, and not so filling – it better not be the price of a pack of flour or sugar (or salt, for that matter). (So while Lilly Singh will tell you she’s cheap, eating her .99ct mac&cheese, I’ll tell you that’s bullshit, you can surely find them cheaper)
