#445: iNoodle Taiwan Style Chow Mein

So anyone who’s seen the top ten list of my all time favorite noodles knows that Sapporo Ichiban’s Chow Mein is up there. I had a fresh noodle – Souper Brand – that was a chow mein variety and liked it very much. This is a Taiwanese version – curious what the difference will be.

Okay so there’s a lot going on for this one. There’s a paste, a dry seasoning and a veggies. These had to be stir fried.

There were a couple really hard bits in there that were like tree bark, but there was also a lot of sesame seeds which I enjoy. 2.25 out of 5.0 – just not feeling it; a let down.

#424: Q Ai Men Tsu Noodle With Sesame Sauce (Luxe Enterprises Ltd)

So my lady decided these looked good to her and woul dlike them for lunch today. They’re fresh ones from Taiwan – I’ll snag a bite and give em my opinion here.

Okay I’m sure that’s sesame on the right – what’s that on the left?

Whatever that thick stuff is, there’s sure a lot of it. She looked at the thick brown paste with a bit of fear as to what it was…

So I get to not only review it but eat the whole bowl! So it’s thick and very pasty and surprisingly, a little bland. I did like it though and think it’d be nice with a little meat and veggies. Also I would like to note that it was slightly reminiscent of pad thai – slightly. I’m going to give it a 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.
