#666: Lishan Food Mfg Co. Ltd. Chinese Instant Noodle

This has to be one of the strangest instant noodles I’ve seen. No instructions. Strange packets. Here we go with #666!

Here’s the little ingredients list – on the front.

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

The noodle pack: strange and ominous.

Okay this is weird. A small packet of powder seasoning on the right year, but on the left, a clear, unsealed plastic cellophane packet with… I’m going with green onions and black pepper but it sure looks suspect.

No instructions… Okay so let’s go with 350cc of boiling water and steep it.

The broth is tasty but kind of ‘off.’ Has a bit of an industrial taste to it. The veggies kind of float here and there and taste a littrle weird. I dunno – it’s interesting, but not great. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 4712275000017 .

Not in this stuff – doesn’t look all that pretty…
