The Last of My Quarantine Instant Ramen Stash, Nissin Cup Noodle Curry Flavor

For almost one week and nine meals, I went on an instant ramen binge, and out of it all, only Cup Noodle Curry reigned supreme.

I only rely on instant ramen for lunch, so I don’t have a problem because it’s not like I can’t stop or have to have it all the time even though I do admit having it a few times as a late-night snack and no it was not in a back alley or a truck stop parking lot.

Photo Description: a shot of the Styrofoam looking cup of Cup Noodle. The iconic graphics, logo, along with a picture of the finished and heated product is on the front. In bold yellow with black outline is the word "Curry." "No added MSG" is also listed on the packaging.
Curry is like crack, once you had it, you keep on wanting more.

I take back what I said about drawing a line on crappy noodle quality because the curry more than made up for it

Spongy noodles and I don’t care because I’d eat this one again.

Photo Description: another shot of the Cup Noodle curry packaging. In this shot you can see the paper lid with "#1 curry instant noodles in Japan" and "for the creamiest curry, follow the instructions on the cup."
It’s good to be #1, and if only I could tout that.

1 Guy, 1 Cup

In Japan, it’s rude to eat food on the go while walking, but since this product comes in a styrofoam cup that doesn’t get too hot even with a hot broth in it, it’s ideal for us Americans to eat on the go. Plus, it fits your car’s cup holders.

Photo Description: inside the cup looks like little brownish yellow granules and lumps. Along with the curry colored filling, you can see specks of green which is most likely scallions.
Just pour water in, and 3 to 3-1/2 minutes later, you’re good to go.

Hot Water or Microwaved

Unlike a few of the other products that either requires a microwave or hot water to heat your food, this product can use either or. It can go both ways *wink *wink.

Photo Description: oh, those lumps must have been the potatoes. You can't have curry without a few potatoes and Nissin Cup Noodle has a number of chunks included.
There be potatoes here! I was not expecting that, so now I have meat and potatoes with my curry.

I Had Some Leftover Ribeye From Dinner the Other Night

I chopped up the leftovers and tossed it in, along with pieces of fat from the steak that goes great with curry and those chunks of potato.

Photo Description: the product only comes up to about half the cup size.
That cup design is so iconic.

It doesn’t look the greatest prior to being mixed up (it did smell good tho). I also don’t know about you, but when it comes to my Cup Noodle, I am a cup half full (call me negative, or maybe they need to fill that cup up).

Photo Description: once you mix it up though, it does look like there is a little more product in the cup from the noodles being tossed about.
If you have never had Japanese curry, this is a cheap way of trying it.

After I had given it a good mix, I snapped a few pics and downed it all (once again, yea, those tender cuts of ribeye went perfect in here).

Photo Description: golden strands of rectanglish noodles that are crinkly in look fill this cup.
Look at those golden locks of wavy blonde noodles.

Pricing, Barely a Couple of Bucks

Amazon$10.54, 6-pack/$1.75
Tokyo Central (2.7oz)$1.88 each
Walmart$1.24 each (in store only)

Conclusion, This is My Favorite Cheap Instant Ramen

If I wasn’t sick of instant noodles, I might go out and buy some of the original Cup Noodles that I had grown up eating as a kid although getting to try the curry version is good enough, and I am more than content now. *8 hours later* I need more, but I can stop anytime I want although if you want to switch it up, I also suggest you try Japanese instant curry.
