#1269: Chewy Rice Vermicelli Scallop With XO Sauce Flavour

Thought Andy might like this one with some shrimp in it perhaps. Told him if it’s spicy and doesn’t like it he can have something different. I guess we’ll see! Let’s check it out.

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp, scallop and fish. To prepare, put everything in a bowl. Add 450cc water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy.

A big hunk of rice vermicelli.

Soup base sachet.

Has an odd scent.

Paste sachet.

Looks a little spicy.

Vegetable sachet.

Lots of little bits.

Andy liked it at first, but he started to feel the heat and kind of gave up after eating half – a valiant effort, nonetheless! He walked with me on a very long walk today – at least 3 miles in all. Good job, Andy!


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp. The noodles have a slight graininess to them I’m not very fond of. The broth has a spiciness and seafood taste that works well though. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 6920377218355.
