We’re still not over C3 AFA Singapore 2017! Previously held at the Suntec City Convention and Exhibition Centre last 24th to 26th November 2017, the event is one of the largest Japanese pop culture events in the world — featuring a massive exhibition hall, a start-studded guest list, and an exciting I Love Anisong concert!
Walking around the convention joining activities and purchasing souvenirs is hungry work, so we were very happy to see the Nissin U.F.O. Fried Ramen booth at this year’s Food Street! Not only was it a quick and delicious hot meal, it was also super affordable — leaving fans with a little bit of pocket money to splurge on even more convention goodies.
Nissin U.F.O. Fried Ramen is different from the typical cup noodles we all know and love. For one thing, it’s eaten dry — you need to drain the hot water from the cup after three to four minutes. While that could be a big hassle (and turn you off eating instant fried ramen completely), Nissin’s patented Turbo Drain technology makes sure you can get rid of the water quickly and efficiently — without losing any of your noodles down the sink!
We gave the fried ramen a go, and purchased both the original and the spicy versions. The Turbo Drain system worked like a treat, and we were able to make our noodles with no muss and no fuss. We mixed in the accompanying toppings, and to make things super rich and tasty, we added a dollop more Japanese mayonnaise. The resulting fried ramen is delicious and satisfying, and we had a hard time stopping ourselves at just one bowl!
As if the yummy and affordable noodles weren’t enough, Nissin sweetened the deal even further by hosting a cosplayer Meet and Greet at their booth! Every purchase of Nissin UFO from the booth gives fans a chance to meet Japanese cosplay superstar Enako, and Chinese cosplay power couple Hana and Baozi. With only so many coupons available for the special activity, some fans went all out and purchased several dozen cups — good thing the noodles keep well!
If you missed out on the fun, no worries — just head to your favorite supermarket or convenience store for more out of this world flavours from Nissin U.F.O.! See you, Space Cowboy!
