So I thought why not – a sunny day here in Edmonds. Pork? Yes, pork sir. After my sweety had some Unif stewed pork noodles a couple weeks ago I thought I’d best try some form of pork noodles. Other than Maruchan’s entry into the pork race that is. So here we are. Quite possibly the longest name in noodles so far, Saigon Ve Wong Kung-Fu Artificial Pork Flavor Instant Noodles Vietnam Flavor.
There is really no statement I have come across that I can stand behind and agree with more than this: “Spicery is up to everyone’s taste!” I’m not sure its meant to be so profound as I find it, but more of a direction to season as desired, but I find this little sentence to be stupefyingly profound and pleasant indeed. It really made my day brighter! I also liked a packet of packets – big fun fun there!
So here we find some more interesting things. Dehydrated stuff, powder and oil. But wait! The dehydrated stuff says seasoned oil on the packet! Ooooh! It’s the upside down airplane stamp of instant noodles!!!
So an interesting little mix. Here comes the pain! Bringing it on!
Oh hell yeah this stuff is just plain good. Sweet hair burgers made of ice it’s good! So the dehydrateds: even though it says artificial pork flavor, there were some little bits of something in there that was very very much like some kind of dehydrated meat. On the back of the package I read about some ‘soya protein’ which must be the culprit here. Very well done. I really liked the broth – even with the oil, it was not at all too greasy like its thai counterparts. The broth did actually tasty pork like! The noodles were of an agreeable grade and again the dehydrated fake meat and vegetables were quite good. I was happily surprised with this instant noodle and proudly give it a 3.75 out of 5 stars. I eagerly await trying more of the Saigon Ve Wong line of instant noodle products.
