I love stir fry, so I am always looking for easy-to-prepare options. When I came across this refrigerated pack of Teriyaki Udon Noodles at Costco it seemed like they would be easy to cook and the photo on the package looked so good!

I had high hopes, but after trying these noodles there were some things that I enjoyed and also some things that I didn’t like. In this review, I’ll be sharing my honest thoughts about and full review of the Pulmuone Teriyaki Stir Fry Udon Noodles.

  • Costco item number 1103763
  • Found in the refrigerated section near the deli. 
  • $8.59 per pack 
  • My rating: 6/10 

The package says that the Udon noodles include a mixed vegetable topping. That they are ready in minutes, and can be prepared in the microwave. These looked delicious and so easy to cook.

Cooking the Teriyaki Udon Noodles 

I prepared my noodles using the stovetop method. I followed the instructions and first added 1 tbsp of oil, 4 tbsp of water, vegetable topping, and udon noodles into a large pan and cooked over high heat for 1-2 minutes.

I then added one pack of teriyaki seasoning and cooked for another minute.

I wanted to love the stir-fried noodles. I have tried some other foods such as the Orange Chicken and the Yakisoba Noodles from Costco and I was hoping to like this stir-fry just as much. 

While it was fairly easy to prepare, after tasting it I was honestly a bit disappointed. While it didn’t taste bad, it also just didn’t taste that great. 

The actual noodles were very good. I liked the texture and consistency and they were fairly filling. Overall, I just didn’t love the dish because I thought that the flavor from the teriyaki seasoning packet was a bit underwhelming. 

Also, I didn’t care for the dehydrated vegetables. The vegetables (especially the peas) were still a bit hard after cooking them for the recommended amount of time. 

Before trying these noodles, I was a bit worried that it might be too spicy. After tasting it I was surprised that it wasn’t spicy at all. Overall, I felt there was just not enough flavor to make the stir-fry taste like I had expected it to.

What I loved 

While it was a bit too bland for my liking, I do think that these noodles have some potential. I like the actual noodles, and you get four large servings for just $8.59. I thought that this was a great deal. 

Also, the noodles are easy and fast to prepare. I might consider buying this again in the future and just preparing it differently. 

I would probably leave out the teriyaki and vegetable packs, and instead, just stir in some real vegetables and regular teriyaki sauce or soy sauce.

It would also be great with some chunks of grilled or sliced chicken. You could even buy some rotisserie chicken from Costco, cut it up, and add it to the dish. 

I think that using real vegetables, regular teriyaki or soy sauce, and adding in some chicken or steak would make this a great dish. 

I feel that normal sauce would give it a bit more flavor, the real vegetables taste so much better than the dehydrated ones, and the chicken would make it a well-rounded and more nutritious meal.

Final Thoughts

I wouldn’t purchase the Stir-Fry Teriyaki Udon Noodles to prepare “as is” with the included ingredients in the pack. 

However, I would consider using the noodles as a base and then adding my vegetables and sauce to give it more flavor. 

While I didn’t personally love this dish, many people have said that they do like it. I think it just depends on your taste and the flavors that you prefer.

Overall I rated this 6/10 and would recommend anyone to try it. Just keep in mind that if you don’t like the included flavors, you might want to have some extra ingredients on hand to spruce it up a bit.
