According to “The Ramen Rater,” a professional ramen rating blog by American blogger Hans Lienesch, the Gourmet Braised Beef Noodle Soup by Taiwan brand A-Sha toped fourth in his 2019 Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time.
This is the highest position a Taiwanese brand has ever reached in the ranking in the renowned ramen review website, gaining a 5-star review by the ramen professional who tasted over 400 ramen brands in the world.
Lienesch is quite into Taiwan’s instant noodles and he tries out and rates new products in his bucket list each year. The Gourmet Braised Beef Noodle Soup surprised him with its unique mouthfeel since the Guanmiao Noodle is quite chewy and thick. He also praised the broth to be distinctly rich and flavorful, which even includes real beef that melts in your mouth when you taste it.
Aside from Gourmet Braised Beef Noodle Soup, another Taiwanese brand, Mom’s Dry Noodles’ Dan Dan Noodle also ranked eighth, whose sauce is highly recommended for its intricate flavors. Other varieties made it to the list are also brands from China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia
