#1252: Tesco Instant Noodles Chow Mein Flavour

Here’s one that Joe B. and Sarah B. sent me from Nottingham, UK – thanks! Tesco’s a big grocery store chain in England. Let’s try out their chow mein!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 250ml water and contents of seasoning sachet in a pot. Break noodle block into 3 or 4 pieces and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Here’s the noodle block.

The seasoning sachet.

Has an odd scent; almost like Worcestershire but not quite.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added leeks, broccoli, sweet onion, green onions and chicken I sauteed with some light soy sauce. The noodles aren’t bad – your basic instant. Decent texture and chew. The flavoring is really quite good – there’s just not enough of it. These noodles are quite bland. I will say once paired with the additions it went well, but separately wasn’t very impressive. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 5010204862484>.

Looks like they have some neat innovations in the UK – check out how your shopping experience may look some day.
