#1288: Sau Tao QQ Scallop Seafood Flavoured Vermicelli

I thought why not have something a little different today. This cup’s been around the bottom of the hamper for a while… So, what does QQ mean? Pretty much really thin noodle. Let’s check it out!

The import sticker (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp.

The side panel (click image to enlarge). I darkened/desaturated the color to make it easier to read. To prepare, empty all the sachets into the cup. Add boiling water to line and re-cover for 3-4 minutes. Stir and enjoy.

A small included fork!

A nest of bean vermicelli.

Dry soup base sachet.

Quite a bit of powder.

The liquid base sachet.

A thick paste.

Solid ingredient sachet.

Vegetables and some shrimp.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added leek, fishballs with crab egg, shrimp, kamaboko and narutomaki. The vermicelli is your standard fare – very thin and needing a few snips before the eating with some kitchen scissors. The broth is pretty good. It has a nice seafood flavor and is reasonably hearty. The vegetable and shrimp bits were really excellent – some of the best shrimp I’ve had in a long time. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 087303862436.
