#2292: Sichuan Baijia Chongqing Noodles Spicy Hot Flavor

This is the third of this line of new products from Sichuan Baijia that I’ve tried recently and what’s neat is that there are bowls too so I’m going to have to try those soon too. The others have definitely been spicy hot but this one says spicy hot. I think this may be a contender! Yesterday’s review of the cheese buldak bokkummyun fire noodle challenge noodle was super hot! Let’s give this a looksie and see how hot it is!

#2280: Sichuan Baijia Chongqing Noodles Hot & Sour Flavor

I tried the Burning Dry Noodle variety of this line a few days ago and was quite pleased with it. That one was a brothless variant while this one will have soup. It sounds interesting – a spicy and sour taste to behold… Well, I suppose I’d better give it a try!

#2271: Sichuan Baijia Chongqing Noodles Burning Dry Noodles

Leave to my wife Kit to notice things I don’t. This is art of a series of three varieties that they got in at 99 Ranch Market in Edmonds, Washington that I’d not seen before – but she did! I asked her which of the three to review first and here’s what she picked. Burning! Here’s a little snippet from Wikipedia –

Chongqing (Chinese: 重庆; pinyin: chóngqìng), formerly transliterated as Chungking[a], is a major city in Southwest China and one of the six national central cities in China. Administratively, it is one of China’s four direct-controlled municipalities (the other three are Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin), and the only such municipality in inland China.[8]

All I can say is this sounds spicy – let’s find out!

The dry base.

Powder and herbs.

A liquid sachet.

A thick mixture.

A sauce sachet.

Smells spicy!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, beef, chilli flake and spring onion. Wow – I mean wow! I wasn’t sure of what to expect here but This is really something else! The noodles are extremely plentiful and really soft and floppy. This is perfect and the seasonings and liquids combine with them very well. The flavor is like an almost beefy and tasty lasagna but with Sichuan pepper and other spices going on. The more you eat, the spicier it gets – heat, upon heat, upon heat! The pain! I really expected this to probably be really salty and have a strong vinegar taste but I was completely mistaken. I love this. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 6926410331821.

#2263: Sichuan Baijia Broad Noodle Artificial Beef Flavor Hot Pot

When it says these are broad noodles, its definitely not an understatement. I’ve had mixed feelings about the offerings from this brand in the past – let’s see how this one pans out!

Here is the distributor’s sticker (click to enlarge).

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add everything to the cup and fill to line with boiling water. Let steep for 5 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

An included fork!

The noodle block – see, I told you they were really broad!

The dry base sachet.

When pouring this out of the sachet into the little bowl, the powder was so light and fine that it almost looked like a little bit of vapor came off of it.

A liquid base sachet.

Has a kind of beef scent – I think I detect Sichuan pepper as well.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, spring onion, beef and chilli flake. The noodles are ultra broad – insanely so! I really like the noodles; they have a bit of chew to them and work well with the broth. The broth has a beef and Sichuan pepper hit along with a good oiliness. The included vegetable bits were pretty good too – the peas mostly hydrated very well – only found one that was a little iffy. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars EAN bar code 6926410320252.

#2008: Sichuan Baijia Hot Spicy Flavor Instant Vermicelli

I’m pretty sure this is the first Baijia bowl I’ve reviewed. For the longest time, I was extremely leery of these; I have a couple Baijia products I really disliked. However, after some time, I found that my tastes have really changed (especially after tring different things overseas and reviewing hundreds of instant noodles) and now I’m keen on giving them a new look. Well, let’s check this one out!

The vermicelli, made from sweet potato.

The dry soup base.

Beans and veggies with a copious amount of MSG.

The liquid sachet.

Thick and oily.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added thin sliced beef, spring onion, crushed red pepper and star anise. The vermicelli has a kind of sliminess on the outside with more of a chewiness inside. It’s easier to eat if you use a pair of kitchen scissors and make a couple snips through all of it. The broth has a nicely spicy taste to it. The vegetables hydrated well – the beans went surprisingly well in this one. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6926410321136.
