Recently, I got a box from MyKuali with a lot of products I’d reviewed before with new packaging as well as a couple of completely brand new products. This is one of the totally new ones, MyKuali’s first bowl offering. It’s also their first rice vermicelli (also known as bihun) variety. Let’s pop open a bowl and look inside!

The bihun block.
The dry seasoning base.
Has a strong prawn scent.
The paste sachet.
Has a bright scent.
The garnish sachet.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, pork, squid, mung bean sprouts, egg and spring onion. The bihun did great – as always, I use a pair of kitchen scissors to shorten the noodles or I’ll get broth all over my shirt. The bihun as I said hydrated really well for something steeped. The broth is mind blowing. If you like a thick and serious onslaught of prawny sweetness and heat, this is absolutely for you. It’s so rich and strong and tasty! To top it all off, fried onion bits that are the best I’ve ever had in any instant product – other than the wheat noodle package version of this product. Amazing. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.
