I’ve always found these quite interesting. Why? Well for starters, they seem to always have a pack of seaweed with them, and not a small one but a decent portion. Also, the noodle blocks are unique as well. How? Well, read on and you’ll see. This one is from Hong Kong – let’s check it out!
Here’s the distributor / import sticker. Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.
Here is detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). To prepare, empty sachets into bowl, add boiling water to line, steep for 4 minutes, stir and enjoy.

So what’s the hubbub about the noodle block? The fact that there are two of them! I’ve never seen this elsewhere – lots and lots of noodles in this one!
The powder soup base sachet.
A very fine powder.
The paste sachet.
Has a nice artificial beef scent.
The other unique thing about these bowls are the seaweed sachets.
That’s quite a bit of seaweed there!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef and sweet onions as well as a dash of Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles have a very familiar instant noodle gauge – kind of squareish. Decent consistency although very light. The broth has a very good flavor, and although not extremely hot or spicy, is full and good. The seaweed is everywhere and works well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.
