#801: Gấu Đỏ Mi Tôm Chua Cay (Hot & Sour Shrimp Flavour)

Here’s the last of the packs that Carter B. sent from his time in Mali. Hot & sour shrimp sounds awesome – so let’s give it a try.

The noodle block. The sun has found the cracks in the blinds!

The dry seasoning packet.

Interesting stuff – a lot of crumbly things in there.

Oil and seasonings.

Lots of bits in this stuff… Hmmm…

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added one egg with Huy Fong Sriracha hot chili sauce, some Fresno peppers, some Cavender’s Greek Seasoning and a few Blue Diamond Sea Salt almonds. Hey yum! The noodles are thin and flat and kind of, well, stringy. They have some pre-seasoning going on as well. The broth is great – a nice hot and sour and reasonably shrimpy. Wasn’t expecting I’d like this one as much as the other Gau Do I have, but I like this a lot – 3.765 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 8934679941826 .

Here’s a commercial for this one.

#737: Gấu Đỏ Tôm và Gà (Chicken & Shrimp Flavour)

Here’s another of the ones sent to me by Carter B. of Lancaster, PA – thanks again! He got this one whilst in Africa! Never seen this brand before here. Something interesting – see that little red band along the front? It comes off!

See? Weird huh? Haven’t seen anything like that before! Well, let’s give chicken and shrimp a try! By the way – Gấu Đỏ translates to Red Bear. Also, it looks like the beat is making noodles by pulling them! Awesome!

Here’s the noodle block.

A dry packet.

Contests are powder and a little bit of veggies.

Seasoned oil!

I’m expecting a little spiciness.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added an egg, some chicken lunch meat, a little veggie mix we made, a little Krazy Mixed Up Salt and some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The Noodles were kind of funky – strange texture and not enjoyable. The broth was okay but was missing something. Not my fave – 2.5 ouit of 5.0 stars. Happy Mother’s Day to all!

So in addition to K-Pop and J-Pop, there’s V-Pop!

Oh man what the heck – these guys are Yankees fans?!
