#1725: A-Sha Veggie Noodle Black Sesame Noodle

This year, Taiwan made The Ramen Rater’s top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time 2015 edition for the first time with A-Sha’s Veggie Noodle Tomato variety. This one is part of the same line, which also includes carrot and ‘baby grass’ flavors which I’m also hoping to try soon! Let’s have a look at this interesting variety.

Here’s the back of the pack (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to a pot of boiling water and cook 4 minutes. Drain. Add in contents of liquid sachet and stir. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The flavoring base sachet.

Has a sesame paste scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles have a wide and flat character to them and a nice chewiness. The flavor of the dish is of sesame paste; sesame and peanut notes. It had a bit of an acidic hit to it I wasn’t too, kind of like tahini I noticed. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4715635852080.

Here’s another variety by A-Sha: Hakka Flat Noodle Spicy Sesame Oil

After watching this, you might want to travel to Taiwan!
