Ok so I signed up for this service expecting to receive "fresh" noodles from different locations in Asia. I honestly don't know what type of noodles they are, by April 26th, 2017 nothing had arrived. Going back to the website and checking my order looking for a tracking number so I could see where they might be, there was none listed on my order. So I have no clue what happened to them. Going through a month's worth of emails, I didn't find any email from Exotic Noods telling me "Here's your TRACKING NUMBER and you can use it at so and so website address". Looking back onto the entire website, there's no real information telling you what type of noodles you are getting: Fresh, Dry, or Instant. There is nothing on the website that tells you how big/small one of the noodle dishes will be. There is nothing on the website that tells you what the serving size is of a noodle dish is. I checked the website when I first signed up for it at the beginning of April 2017, since then they have now updated their information. Now they have actual pictures and F.A.Q.s that tell you that basically you are getting dried instant microwavable noodles. So they are charging you $20 U.S.D. for 4 noodle bowls, no tax. That means that each noodle bowl is $5 U.S.D. THAT'S JUST WAY TOO EXPENSIVE FOR MICROWAVABLE INSTANT NOODLES! If you live in the U.S.A. we have a store chain called Walmart. At Walmart you can buy instant noodle bowls and packages for $1 U.S.D. or less. I can get about 5 Top Ramen or Maruchan brand instant noodle packages for $1 U.S.D. So effectively I can get 15 to 20 instant noodle packs for a 20 dollar bill depending if I have some extra change on hand to pay the tax. And these 2 instant noodle brands have about 5 different flavours to choose from. And I can do so much more with those types of noodles, the flavour pack comes separately so I can end up making big meals with meat and veggies to go with those noodles and the 2 cups of hot water it says to use. Save your money people. If you want instant noodles buy the ones at the store for a cheaper price and get more packages for the money.
I first got the single standard 4 pack option, just for kicks. I grew up on Top Ramen, so I wanted to see what was out there. To say the obvious, it was really good! Inside was the Tikka Masala curry flavor brothless noodles from Singapore, something called Sujebi, which looked like spicy ravioli, Kitsune "Foxy" Japanese udon and Kimchi Rice Noodles. My favorite for the tikka masala - never tried curry with noodles before! I'm now a big fan of the the combo. The Sujebi's spicy kick wakes you up for sure. If they keep offering new selections every single month, you may have found a new long term subscriber!
My office is a jungle, filled with hungry nasty beasts I call my coworkers. When lunch time comes, its like a free for all in the cafeteria, with the good stuff usually gone before I arrive! That means I get to pick between a badly sliced salad with globs of mayo everywhere, or lame hamburgers that still show freezer burns. Lucky girl! Thankfully for me, I found ExoticNoods. I never knew there were so many instant noodles from Thailand! I really liked the Chanthaburi noodles I got last time. The description in the brochure that came with it made me want to visit when I can! I would definitely recommend this service!
