I saw these A-Sha Taiwan Style Noodles last time I was at Costco and thought they looked pretty good so picked them up to try!

Taste

The A-Sha Taiwan style noodles are basically like plain ramen noodles that come with a packet of soy sauce. Very plain! Not amazing and definitely need something added or else you’re just basically eating soy sauce and noodles. The noodles themselves after cooking are tasty enough, the sauce is great if you love straight up soy sauce. Don’t expect these to be super flavorful or unique tasting.

Cost

I paid $12.89 Canadian for the box of noodles which comes with 12 packs of noodles which are 95 grams each.

Convenience

These are convenient for lunches or dinner. You basically cook the noodles in boiling water and add the sauce and they’re done. In my opinion, they definitely need a little something extra added to them. I added butter-basted shrimp and green onions to mine.

Nutrition

Look at that sodium!! One package is 300 calories, four grams of fat, 56 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, five grams of sugar, 10 grams of protein and a whopping 1320 mg of sodium! That’s a ton of sodium. I’m actually surprised by the amount of protein. The ingredients list is short and sweet and the box states these are not fried. No MSG, no preservatives and no trans fat.

These weren’t great, they’re okay but I probably wouldn’t buy them again. I’d probably use the rest of my noodles in a stir fry or try to make a ramen soup.

Taste: 6/10

Cost: /10

Convenience: 9/10 (you definitely need to add stuff to make them taste good)

Nutrition: 2/10

Would you try these? What would you add to them to make them tastier?

  2. A-Sha brand noodles can be really good. I’ve gotten a lot of good varieties at local Asian markets, but this variety was definitely underwhelming

  3. I too was underwhelmed by these since I was looking forward to having Taiwan style noodle. Since I buy lots of noodle types directly from Japan, I am familiar with air dried noodles which most of instant ramens found in Japan are too. I am glad to read these should have been served chilled with cucumber, etc much like ramen salads. I plan to dress these up with more topping next time And chilled.

  4. My sister gave me a couple of packs of these to try and I actually found them to be quite tasty. I don’t often eat instant noodles because most are quite unhealthy, so maybe that’s why I liked these. They are not deep fried and don’t have MSG so these noodles may not be as flavourful as other instant noodles. I ate my noodles with the Bibigo chicken & cilantro mini wontons.

  5. Well this product was not my favorite. Noodles are pasty, tried to cook them four different ways same result.
    I would not recommend. I am donating the last 8 bags in my box to charity.
