Found this one at the new Win?Co Foods store in Edmonds, Washington. I thought ‘ooh – rice noodles and curry’ and so I got it. 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, puncture noodle pouch and microwave for one minute. Add 1-2tbsp oil to a pan and add in noodles, seasoning, and 1/2 cup water. Cook 1-2 minutes while stirring. Enjoy!
The noodle pouch.
The seasoning sachet/.
Has a coconut curry scent and a neon glow about it.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added barbecue pork, coriander and tofu puff. The noodles are wide and thick. They look more like egg noodles and have a kind of chewiness to them with a hint of crumble. This one smells a bit better than it tastes; it’s kind of curry, kind of coconut, has a hint of spiciness and exudes sugariness. It’s just weird and doesn’t seem right to me. As a curry lover, this disappointed expectations. Kind of like Thousand Island dressing gets heated up, a pinch of chilli powder is added, and some overly thick and chewy rice noodles are in the mix. Long story short, this hurt my feelings. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070492033848.
So this is the last of the Fortune Udons. Was waiting for the right time to make it for my beloved Kit and right now I’m going to say that she finds it to be absolutely excellent.
Again with the packets with no labelling! How do they know…
Tan powder from the single packet….
Finished product. The broth is mushroomy – not really my favorite thing but it isn’t too funky. I’m actually surprised how much I liked it since I’m not usually any form of a fan of mushroom flavorings – unless they’re fresh mushrooms – like real ones… The noodles were pretty good quality and I liked them. I think my lady would give them 5.0 out of 5.0 but I’m going to give these noodles 3.0 out of 5.0. I guess if you really like mushrooms, this might be right up your alley.
So let’s see if this is as good if not better than yesterday’s udon.
Again I am flummoxed; how do they tell the packets apart? This one is exactly the same as the beef packet.
Definitely chicken flavor!

So I’m thinking add some chicken, some onion, some bok choy (ya know, we went out for Chinese food last week and ordered broccoli beef – they used bok choy instead of broccoli; like we were stupid and couldn’t understand our vegetables – geez!) , some other stuff. Alone, it’s kind of like the beef udon – kind of boring. The huge noodles are fun though. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.
