#737: Gấu Đỏ Tôm và Gà (Chicken & Shrimp Flavour)

Here’s another of the ones sent to me by Carter B. of Lancaster, PA – thanks again! He got this one whilst in Africa! Never seen this brand before here. Something interesting – see that little red band along the front? It comes off!

See? Weird huh? Haven’t seen anything like that before! Well, let’s give chicken and shrimp a try! By the way – Gấu Đỏ translates to Red Bear. Also, it looks like the beat is making noodles by pulling them! Awesome!

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

Here’s the noodle block.

A dry packet.

Contests are powder and a little bit of veggies.

Seasoned oil!

I’m expecting a little spiciness.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added an egg, some chicken lunch meat, a little veggie mix we made, a little Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The Noodles were kind of funky – strange texture and not enjoyable. The broth was okay but was missing something. Not my fave – 2.5 ouit of 5.0 stars. Happy Mother’s Day to all! UPC bar code 8934679943325 .

Gấu Đỏ TV commercial.

So in addition to K-Pop and J-Pop, there’s V-Pop!

Oh man what the heck – these guys are Yankees fans?!

    Yea thought the same about the noodles, that was my second favorite out of that batch I sent you (couldn’t get my hands on the hao hao [at least I think that’s their name] though 🙁 those were my favorite on that trip…) but hey you don’t get the best in west Africa :P. There is a large population of Vietnamese there though (well, there WAS a large population… They have since all left the country >.> since the recent coup…)

      I’ve had a few of the Hao Hao – Vina Acecook makes ’em – they were decent – I liked the veggie/herb packet – makes for a nice flavor. Yeah this one was a little funky – curious about the other Golden Mie’s – the first wasn’t bad. Thanks again!
