Q: Is there a vegetarian curating option? I love making asian inspired noodle dishes, but since going vegetarian, I have to be careful of the ingredients in the "instant noodles" I also used to loved.Asked by Zizi A., July 2020
Only small block ramen. 4 of them. Nothing extra, no bowls. And I was charged $20.00
We are sorry your box didn't meet expectations. Let me provide some clarification on our service. While we don't charge extra for shipping, it typically amounts to 50% of the subscription cost. We work with importers of quality products that are rarely found at your local supermarket. These products are not your $0.25 Top Ramen. You may occasionally be able to find some products we feature at a specialty store, however, retail prices can often be as high as $5 per product. We feel our subscriptions are very competitively priced considering the curation value, our pamphlet describing each product, and shipping at no extra cost. If you'd like, please email us and we would love to work something out with you.
I subscribed to this box for about 3 months and it was ok. The ramen noodles are good but they were brands and even varieties that you could find pretty easily at an Asian market, about 1/3 was something I had seen/eaten before so it wasn't exactly 'exotic.' I did like the write ups but they were pretty simple descriptions printed on a laser jet. I suppose it would be of greater value if you lived far from an Asian grocery store but if you live in a city with an Asian population you can find the majority of these products.
Exotic Noods really have something special here. Their selection of noodles are all top notch. The first bowl I tried was the "Pho" by Mama and it tasted pretty much just like the restaurant pho! Spectacular stuff. I never could have expected you could get this kind of quality in instant noodles. Since the pho tasted so good it set the bar pretty high for the remaining noodles. I didn't think the other noodles in the box bring back that initial amazement but boy am I happy to be wrong! Almost every noodle was top notch. I blew through my box on 6 noodles in 2 days. I may have overloaded my body with sodium but it was totally worth it. This is nothing less but the finest selection of instant noodles on the market. I will definitely renew my subscription.
If you're a huge ramen or noodle fan then this crate is perfect for you. I really loved the huge range of selection that each package provided.
The 3 month delivery came on time for me and there wasn't any hassle with the purchase. Not that I needed it to come on time because each package that I received gave me so many different ramen that I didn't have enough time to finish it all till the next one came.
It helped me with my noodle addiction especially when there is some products that aren't available in my city.
I first stumble upon this subscription through Reddit. I decided to sign up because I love instant ramen and it seems pretty cool. I purchase the 3 month subscription for the Green packages. This is the first time I ever purchase a lootcrate sort of thing and I was super excited! One of my personal biggest worries was that they will send me noodles that I already tried since I live next to a Chinese/Vietnamese Asian market and grew up Chinese. When my first box arrived I was not disappointed! All the noodles in there were something I have never seen before. Inside the package came with a menu with a description of the noodles which to me personally, I enjoy. Just a couple nights ago I decided to cook one of the package noodles which was a Myojo Chukazanmai Miso Ramen. 10 out of 10 will recommend! I added some raw New York strip steak, bok choy, boil eggs, scallions and a dash of sesame seeds and it was delicious! I dream about it every night, haha. I highly recommend exotic noods if you're a noodle fan like me!
Signed up because a friend told me about this product and I love noods (of all kinds). It's an excellent variety of packages and flavors. I didn't even know a lot of these existed!
There was one bowl in there that reminded me of a bowl that my family used to buy in my childhood. They've since changed their bowls (damn you, microwaveable market), and it hasn't been the same. The bowl included was as good, if not better than what I remember!
Definitely enjoyed the product and I can't wait for the next set.
Loved the box! I liked the description of each different kind of noodle!
EDIT: Oh my gosh, the customer service is absolutely amazing! They sent me a spicy box by mistake so I emailed them, they replied within a week and sent me my original order for free!!!!!!!!! The noodles are fabulous! Will definitely reconsider getting another box!!!!! ORIGINAL: Super disappointed in these noodles! I ordered no spicy and all I got in my box were spicy noodles! One was so spicy I had to dump half a bottle of yum yum sauce into it but it was still super spicy!
Will not ever be ordering from them again.
Spicy spicy spicy!
We're so sorry that this happened. We've went ahead and contacted you and sent a replacement "no spicy" box for our slip up.
I've had this subscription for a little while now and I'm always impressed by the variety and quality. I love the included pamphlet too. Sometimes these products include little to no English, so the pamphlet does a great job of letting me know what I'm getting. Looking forward to next month's box!
Great gift for someone who loves ramen and likes the idea of adding ingredients!
