#1816: Vifon Asian Style Instant Noodles Artificial Beef Flavor

This one came by way of Michael over at EastLand Foods – thanks! I haven’t reviewed a Vietnamese instant noodle in ages it seems like – let’s see what we have here!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, put everything in the bowl and add 2 cups boiling water. Cover and let steep 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

An included fork!

The noodles block.

A dry soup base sachet.

A light powder.

A seasoned oil sachet.

Deep orange.

The vegetables sachet.

A neat little array of vegetables.

Finished. Added beef, white onion and mushroom. The noodles hydrated pretty well, but had a slightly spongy texture I wasn’t super keen on. Quantity was alright though. The broth definitely had a decent beef flavor, but still was a little on the thinner side and due to that, wasn’t completely convincing. The vegetables hydrated nicely. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 851683004515.
