Here’s one from Colin of Arlington, MA! He sent a great big box of varieties after I called out to readers for new stuff to review! Thanks! This one surprised me; I haven’t reviewed anything by Doll brand in a very long time and I know it’s a popular brand in Hong Kong. It’s interesting that Colin has access to such a different range of products on the east coast… Anyways, from what I can surmise, mifun might also be known as maifun. These are rice vermicelli. Let’s check it out!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, stir noodle block into 500ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachets. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The dry seasoning sachet.
Has a spicy scent.
A liquid sachet.
An oily paste.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Dodo fish balls and coriander. The noodles are pretty good – 3 minutes did them well. I recommend as always using a pair of kitchen scissors to cut them into a manageable size – two cross-cuts should do the trick. The broth has a very light flavor – a little salty, a little spicy, nicely oily. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4892333100153.
