A couple little bits of fishcake with Winnie The Pooh on them and other bits of garnish from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles came out alright – very light and a slight slight sponginess. The broth definitely tastes like seaweed – and is augmented with lots of seaweed as well. The little Pooh fishcake bits were a neat touch and bits of spring onion popped up now and again. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8852528000657.

#2250: Nissin Demae Iccho Spicy XO Sauce Seafood Flavour Instant Noodle

Here’s yet another leftover from the Nissin HK Meet The Manufacturer! This is a really large bowl and sounds pretty good! If you’re unsure about what Xo sauce is, here’s an excerpt from Wikipedia:

Developed in the 1980s in Hong Kong for Cantonese cuisine, XO sauce is made of roughly chopped dried seafoods, including scallops, dried fish and shrimp, and subsequently cooked with chili peppers, onions, and garlic. This dried seafood-based sauce bears similarity to the Fujianese Shacha sauce. Spring Moon, the Peninsula Hong Kong‘s Chinese restaurant, is often credited with the invention of XO sauce, although others claim the sauce’s origin in the urban area of Kowloon.[2] The name XO sauce comes from fine XO (extra-old) cognac, which is a popular Western liquor in Hong Kong and considered by many to be a chic product there. In addition, the term XO is often used in the popular culture of Hong Kong to denote high quality, prestige and luxury. In fact, XO sauce has been marketed in the same manner as the French liquor, using packaging of similar colour schemes.[3]

#2245: Nissin Vietnamese Chicken Coriander Flavour Vermicelli

If you follow my daily reviews, you might have noticed not just a lot, but a lot a lot of Nissin reviews lately. This is because I’ve done a few Meet The Manufacturers and they were kind enough to send more varieties than I review in a Meet The Manufacturer (15 maximum). Nissin Hong Kong sent around 50 different product varieties! That’s what we have today. Let’s check out this chicken flavor vermicelli!

The bits included coriander and other vegetable bits as well as what seemed to me like chicken sausage. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878170029.
