An included fork.

The noodle block.

A dry seasoning sachet.

A grainy powder.

A liquid base sachet.

Thick oily stuff.

The sauerkraut sachet/.

Smells pretty good!

Finished (click to enlarge) Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander and beef. The noodles hydrated well but were a little on the crumbly side. While the broth was tasty, it definitely seemed too thin; not oily enough. The flavor of beef, a hint of spiciness and sauerkraut was throughout. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6925487994021.

#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!

This looks spicy…

Smells spicy too!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, sweet onion, beef and coriander. The noodles are thin and flat with a medium width. They really work well here. The broth is a very spicy beef with a Sichuan pepper hit amongst others. There are sesame seeds throughout and the bits of vegetables in there were great. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6926410330879.

Looks like corn and greenery.

#2275: JinMaiLang Hot & Sour Beef Noodles

Here’s another one sent by Jen from Australia – thanks! Although not an Australian brand, the distributor’s sticker mentioed Australian distribution and so here we are. Sounds good – been reviewing quite a few beef ones lately it seems. 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, add noodle block and sachet contents to 500ml boiling water. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

A fine powder with some herbs here and there.

Maybe the spicy element?

Hey – an old clay pot!

Pickled mustard greens!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, chilli flake, red bell pepper, carrot and broccoli. The noodles came out nicely – and a great quantity as well. The broth was really great – a nice sour and spicy taste to it I really enjoyed. The pickled mustard stems however were an element that kind of mussed it all up though – just think that I would have liked it better without the mustard greens. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 6921555509982.

#2274: Suimin Noodles With Braised Beef Flavour

Here’s one that Jen from Australia sent – thanks again! Braised beef sounds good… I’m mostly familiar with Taiwanese braised beef flavors – excellent stuff! Curious how this one will be – let’s have a look!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add in sachet contents and add enough boiling water to cover noodles. Let sit covered for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Fried onion perhaps?

Finished (click to enlarge). Added beef, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and coriander. The noodles came out very well – the gauge and mouthfeel were nicer than I expected this go around. As far as braised beef, I would kind of say it’s a misnomer; more of a sweet beef. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 9310155303262.
