Johor Kaki Instant Ramen Noodle Grading System

The principles governing the Johor Kaki standardised instant noodle rating system are fairness and transparency. There are no paid instant ramen noodle reviews.


All rating criteria are clearly laid out and standardised to prevent arbitrary rating.

Johor Kaki grades instant noodles according to noodle texture, noodle taste, broth body, broth flavour, MSG thirst, chemical aftertaste and so on.

Each instant noodle is given a net score which is derived by adding the raw scores together (number of factors).

The scale of scores for each factor is as follows.

1. Authenticity

1    - Close to the original dish
0.5 - Somewhat similar to the original dish in the key aspects
0    - Does not resemble the original dish in any or most ways

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints as it makes this blog better :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
