Mr Lee’s Pure Foods, the award-winning company behind Mr Lee’s Noodles, is launching a brand-new range – Mr Lee’s Ramen Noodles. The new savoury instant wheat noodle comes in a range of three flavours: a vegan Golden Veggie Curry, Kicking Korean Beef broth, and Krazy about Katsu, a chicken Katsu curry broth.
Ready in just four minutes after adding hot water, the three different varieties of ramen noodle are made with authentic Asian-style flavours, 100% real chunks of meats and real veggies, all natural ingredients, low in sugar and saturated fats, and as always, absolutely no nasties.
Founded by the late Damien Lee, Mr Lee’s mission is to create market-disruptive on-the-go foods, giving consumers healthy alternatives to junk, convenient products. This is the third product launch (after the breakfast porridges and congees – rice porridges) since Damien sadly passed away in January 2021, his passion for the healthy food industry however lives on in the expansion of the Mr Lee’s product line.
Ramen is a traditional noodle dish that’s been popular since the 1600s and a firm favourite of Damien’s as Andy Chu, Executive Chef at Mr Lee’s Pure Foods explains: “Ramen is a staple in Asian cuisine, it’s been a popular street food in Japan since the 1950s and such an important addition to the Mr Lee’s range”.
“Damien and I worked on these Ramen recipes together making sure we have that all-important authentic heritage while still being a quick and healthy way to eat a snack or meal that packs a punch flavour-wise. That’s why we went with these three flavours, the vegan-friendly Golden Veggie Curry has a really warm and well-rounded taste while still being protein rich, the Kicking Korean Beef does exactly that, it kicks!
“If you love spice, you’ll love this one, and as a broth it automatically has that restorative quality while kick-firing you back into action. And we just had to include a katsu, it’s such a special and unique flavour, and there are so many of us (me included!) who really are Krazy about Katsu!”
