#2416: Xiuhe Hot & Sour Chilled Beef Noodle - China - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Here’s another one that was sent to me by Colin from Arlington, Massachusetts – thanks again! This one has really proved to be a touch one to translate this morning. Cooking shouldn’t be an issued, however figuring out what the name/variety is on this one is tough. Searched by image, searched by barcode, hit the company’s website… I see other ones with the little ‘angelic baby’ on the packaging, but none that look just like this one. UPDATE – Thank you to Bobby Y., my friend from Toronto – he figured it out. It was too late for my friends in Southeast Asia so I had to look west! So the noodles are hot but I guess I will put chilled prepared beef in with them. Alright – let’s check it out! UPDATE #2 – my friend Mengzhe Z. who is in China told me actually it isn’t chilled beef – just beef.

Thick and oily.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and roast beef cold cuts. The noodles are thin and have a really light characteristic to them. In fact, they’re not chewy by any stretch of the imagination, However, they do have a nice quality and are prevalent. The broth is strong but not overly so. Moreover, it’s got a good oiliness and taste kind of spicy beef. The included veggies (the bean looking things) hydrated extremely well and were good. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 69241132533297.
