Fung Bros and Sean Evans Review International Instant Noodles | Sean in the Wild

  • Published on Apr 24, 2018
  • Instant ramen is one of the world's most ubiquitous cheap eats. But which international noodle brand reigns supreme? To help Sean Evans unpack the increasingly intricate world of mass-market noodle bowls, he's enlisted the help of Andrew and David Fung, the stars of the wildly popular TVclip channel Fung Bros. While taste-testing noodles from across East Asia, Sean, Andrew, and David slurp up instant soba from Japan before sampling Samyang's hot chicken flavor ramen-a dish made famous by last year's viral "Korean Fire Noodle Challenge." Finally, the guys taste-test Ichiran's ultra-luxe ramen kit before stepping into the Japanese chain's legendary solo dining booths. Does complete isolation really enhance the noodle-slurping experience? Is it ever worth dropping $39 on a three-pack of instant ramen? Is the Fire Noodle Challenge really all it's cracked up to be? Find out the answers to these important questions-and more!-on an all new episode of Sean in the Wild.

    No scientific evidence that MSG is bad. Its also a naturally occurring like salt.

      Well, everything in excess is bad, so i would say msg is not bad in reasonable amounts.

    Not to crush their dreams, but instant noodles is NOT a thing all over the world. You can't buy Cup Ramen, everywhere. And even if you can, it's still not a thing normal people buy. It's still in the subculture sphere I guess. Personally, I like it, but where I live we don't have instant noodles of the kind these guys talk about.

    In case you don't know it's considered good manners to slurp in Asian countries because it lets them know you enjoyed it also never completely empty your bowl that's basically like disrespect because the chef will think he didn't provide you with enough food it makes him sad

    I actually agree with what the Fung brothers said. I do think Ramen is, at this point, an American staple and perhaps even a global staple food. It's something that most people have had and everyone knows...whether it's the cheap ramen or the better ones. Ramen is a big thing in America. I know I love ramen and I do pick up several when I go to the asian super markets in order to try other brands and types.

    Sad fact but be careful of Chinese noodles. Just like their rice, it’s known to be made from partial plastic.
    I always go for Korean or Japanese.

    $40 for a 3 pack of instant ramen. sure it was good, but i'm sure that restaurant ramen was about $12 per bowl and a bigger serving. bottom line, why bother!? if you want that premium shit go to the source. otherwise just make regular instant ramen. the good stuff of course, just not that $10+/packet shit. also i bet it's cheaper to make proper homemade ramen then that "premium instant ramen"
