So here’s yet another variety from Nissin Foods Hong Kong. Indeed, they sent a massive amount of varieties for Meet The Manufacturer! This one’s a rice vermicelli for the health conscious. Here’s a little info about rice vermicelli from wikipedia:
Rice vermicelli are a thin form of rice noodles. They are sometimes referred to as rice noodles, rice sticks, or bee hoon, but they should not be confused with cellophane noodles, which are an Asian type of vermicelli made from mung bean starch rather than rice.
I’m unsure if anyone would call rice stick rice vermicelli. Rice stick is literally like a stick while the vermicelli is very thin and wispy. Let’s check out this rice vermicelli from Nissin Hong Kong!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork. The rice vermicelli was a little chewier than most. Not in a bad way – just a little surprised. The broth was very nice. It had a good kind of pork taste to it and a creamy color like a form of tonkotsu. The pickled vegetable component’s mustard greens went very well with it. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.
