#970: Meet The Manufacturer: Annie Chun’s Noodle Express Spicy Szechuan

As we are starting to wind down the Annie Chun’s Meet The Manufacturer (there are only two left), we find the last Noodle Express I have – Spicy Szechuan. It mentions that the Szechuan sauce is made with gochujang, a Korean standard as far as spicy fare goes. Let’s check it out.

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

Veggie packet.

A nice selection – lots of shallot which is one of my favorites.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some bell peppers and onions, light ham and some Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are as usual very nice and have a great freshness and firmness. The flavor this time has a strange bitterness and a kind of singularity where I expected more depth of flavor. I do taste the gochujang for sure, but it seems to be missing something, what I do not know. The veggies again are very nice. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 765667200100 – get it here.
