Here’s another one of the big JML bowls sent by Michelle L. of Tarrytown, New York. Mushroom chicken eh? Alright, let’s give this a try.

An included fork!
One angry and round noodle block – sometimes they’re hard to get out of the containers.
The powder seasoning packet.
I’m not sure if powdered mushroom is the culprit, but this stuff smelled like burnt plastic. I decided to have a taste. It also tasted like burnt plastic. Not good.
Seasoned oil packet.
This one kind of smells like mushrooms and chicken.
Here they are – decent amount.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a hard boiled egg with some Cavender’s Greek Seasoning, some kizami shoga (pickled ginger), some of my veggie mix (ack! time to go back to the produce stand – we’re out!), a little chicken lunch meat and a bit of Texas Pete Hot Sauce. The noodles are okay but not exceptional. The broth has this flavor. I don’t really like it at all; it’s mushroom-like but not mushroom. It’s got this flavor that actually does remind me of the smell of burning plastic. It’s also almost spicy in a weird way. I will finish this bowl of noodles as I am hungry, but I tell you what – this is pretty bad. 1.25 out of 5.0 stars. 6921555583951.
I don’t think these guys would really like this either.
