#902: Sunlee Pho Bo Instant Rice Stick Beef Flavour

I reviewed another version of this in #502. It looks like this one is somewhat different; different color packet and a different sized rice noodle chunk. Let’s try it!

Here’s detail of the writing on the label (click to enlarge).

Sweet – forks are rad!

Here’s the rice stick. Like a bird nest.

The powder base.

Lots of fine powder.

Seasoned oil.

The veggie packet.

Nice little assortment.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added the dregs of my freezer bag of green bell pepper and broccoli, some Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake and some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles are pretty good – easily broken by the lips with a crumbly texture and fun chew. The broth isn’t bad; it has a bit of beef flavor but mostly is overwhelmed by a strong sweet basil flavor. I love sweet basil in real pho noodles, but this just made me want pho take out. The veggies were okay but I wish there were more here and there were some TVP beef bits that were nice additions. All in all, not too shabby but room for improvement. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 761934016535 .
