All Time Greatest Instant Noodles

No, Cup of Noodles didn't make the list

1. MyKuali Penang White Curry (Malaysia)

This is the consensus #1 rated instant noodle in the world. Slightly creamy broth, medium spice.

2. MyKuali Penang Hokkien Prawn (Malaysia)

Hot on the white curry's heels, the MyKuali prawn variety is making a strong challenge to usurp the thrown. Seafood flavor and a thicker broth.

3. Prima Taste Laksa La Mian (Singapore)

This is the closest you can get to authentic Singapore Laksa in the US. Spicy in a coconut broth .

4. Myojo Ippeichan Yakisoba (Japan)

Yakisoba noodles are a classic dish in Japan, and unlike most of the other selections on this list, eaten without broth. This variety has a slight sweetness and is on the milder side of spicy.

5. Moms Dry Noodle (Taiwan)

As the name implies, dry noodles are also eaten without the broth. Mom's brand is slightly sour spicy with big broad noodles.

6. Nongshim Jinjja Jinjja (Korean)

A spicy Korean ramen

7. MAMA Green Curry (Thai)

Coconut green curry broth, only a little spicy -- great for the Thai food lover.

8. Habanero Ramyun Super Spicy Ramen

Full disclaimer: this is not the best noodle, it's just the spiciest. If you are looking for some heat, this is what you want.
