#801: Gấu Đỏ Mi Tôm Chua Cay (Hot & Sour Shrimp Flavour)

Here’s the last of the packs that Carter B. sent from his time in Mali. Hot & sour shrimp sounds awesome – so let’s give it a try.

The noodle block. The sun has found the cracks in the blinds!

The dry seasoning packet.

Interesting stuff – a lot of crumbly things in there.

Oil and seasonings.

Lots of bits in this stuff… Hmmm…

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added one egg with Huy Fong Sriracha hot chili sauce, some Fresno peppers, some Cavender’s Greek Seasoning and a few Blue Diamond Sea Salt almonds. Hey yum! The noodles are thin and flat and kind of, well, stringy. They have some pre-seasoning going on as well. The broth is great – a nice hot and sour and reasonably shrimpy. Wasn’t expecting I’d like this one as much as the other Gau Do I have, but I like this a lot – 3.765 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 8934679941826 .

Here’s a commercial for this one.
