#304: MAMA Phở Bò Rice Noodles With Artificial Beef Flavor Vietnamese Style

Phở bò? Here we go! I like the picture on the lid – looks very inviting and fresh and tasty. We shall see how it tastes! Join me won’t you? WON’T YOU?

The lovely fresh paradise on the lid is represented in reality by two packets – one seasoned oil and a dry packet with powder a rehydratables.

Was surprised there was no ‘just veggies’ packet…

Bam. Two fried eggs. Bam. A little Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Magic Vegetarian seasoning on them.  Noodles? Primo excellente – nice and broad rice noodles, although nothing like you’d find at a local greasy phở joint. Broth was nice and lively too – hints of basil were there and had a nice beef broth flavor. The veggies were slim – a little carrot and onion. I liked it fine, but it could use a little work. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. Find it here.
