A long time ago, I tried the package version of this one. It was really great and I am quite pleased to be able to try the bowl. Nissin HK sent quite a few different varieties – always hear people saying things about Fuku – nice things. Let’s check it out!

Finished (click to enlarge). The vermicelli hydrated perfectly (I did two crosscuts with a pair of kitchen scissors to make the vermicelli more manageable). It’s soft but not at all mushy. The broth is really nice; it’s salty but with a garlic and sesame oil taste. It also has this kind of pepperiness to it which I really liked – it begs you to slurp it and warms your innards. The corn was sweet and seaweed prevalent – they really complimented the whole experience. Really great vermicelli soup! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878650088.
