Edmonds’ own The Ramen Rater hits 400th noodle review

The Ramen Rater (aka Hans Lienesch) is still at it.

Congratulations are in order to Edmonds’ own Ramen Rater, who on May 24 reviewed his 400th cup of ramen! We first featured the Ramen Rater (in real life, Hans Lienesch) in February, when he had reached his 300th review of instant noodles from around the world.

His 400th review was the Nissin Cup Noodle Seafood Curry Flavour from Canada, which received high marks for flavor, noodle character and amount of vegetables and fish, he noted.

The Ramen Rater includes Lienesch’s reviews of noodles — “0.0 is bottom of the barrel” while 5.0 “is perfection”; step-by-step cooking instructions with photos, and related You Tube videos of particular ramen brands. The site also has links to markets in South Snohomish and North King counties that carry the reviewed noodles.

And for those desiring more frequent “Ramen Rater” updates, follow Lienesch’s reports on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. So funny! I love that he can actually have an opinion about the nuances of that many different variations of the same dish. I used to love eating cup-o-noodles as a kid and would get to have one when I visited my dad at his ceramics studio.
