This is one I got when by friend Matt B. was kind enough to take us on a trip to a place called Imran’s Market up the road a ways from here. It’s kind of interesting; this will be the third Pakistani instant noodle I’ve reviewed and they were all got within about 5 miles from eachother! I think it does make me want to Shoop, although I’m not exactly sure how to shoop… Regardless, let’s have a look – today we’re going to a new Asian grocery in Bellevue, so I might have a new post about that place tomorrow. Stay tuned, and enjoy the Shoop BBQ!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block and sachet contents to 300ml boiling water. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring gently. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Has a strong BBQ spice scent to it.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added grilled chicken, sweet onion and Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Pepper. The noodles are of a very standard instant noodle gauge. They have a little crumble to them and have this kind of flour-like aftertaste, almost like I would imagine an uncooked noodle would be like – kind of interesting. The BBQ flavor isn’t like Sweet Baby Ray’s or an American style BBQ flavor. It’s acidic and slightly sour – kind of reminds me of the dipping sauce that was with calamari we had at an Indian restaurant in Penang. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 788821003720.
Here’s another Shoop variety called Bombay Biryani.
