#1462: Wei Lih Steam Instant Noodle Korean Salt & Rib Soup Flavor

2014_8_21_1462_001

Today I opened up my big hamper of noodles and this one popped into view. To be honest, I don’t know exactly when I got this one – Canada trip I think. Definitely has an interesting name – Korean Salt & Rib Soup. The closest thing I can think of that they might be referring to would be galbitang, which is a South Korean soup with short ribs and made with ox bone broth. Sounds interesting – let’s see what we have here.

Here’s the distributor/import sticker (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free, but check for yourself. Yep – definitely got this one in Canada.

The noodle block.

The powder soup base.

A very light powder.

An oil sachet.

Has an interesting scent.

The vegetables sachet.

A nice little mixture.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprouts, sliced green onions and sauteed sweet onion and thinly sliced pork seasoned with Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Seasoning. The noodles came out on the spongy side; not much backbone here. The broth had a very different flavor. It’s like a mild pork broth and had a scent I didn’t enjoy, but it’s not bad. The vegetables hydrated well. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710199077634.


This is probably the most well-known instant noodle from Taiwan. What’s unique is that when properly prepared, you end up with a bowl of broth and a plate of saucy noodles!
