Today I’ll be reviewing a thinner gauge noodle by Amianda. I thought it was funny that they were called ‘homely,’ as here in the US homely usually means ugly, but I think this time it’s meant to be more along the lines of homemade or home-style.

The noodle block. A very thin gauge.
The liquid sauce packet.
In the provided literature, it says ‘the most classic flavor of all, sauce with hand-made soy sauce can serve you the original sweetness of noodle.’
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a fried egg and some ham. The noodles are very thin and have a nice elasticity and texture. The flavoring while light has a very nice soy flavor and sweetness. These are excellent! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.
The differences in soy sauces around Asia are discussed, centering in Taiwanese soy sauce.
Today it’s a spicy sauerkraut – kind of interesting to see sauerkraut as a popular addition in Taiwanese noodles, but this isn’t the first time I’ve seen it – I think it’s about the fourth. Anyways, let’s give it a look!

The noodle block. They look about the same as the Tachia variety I reviewed for #1088.
A sauce packet.
Has a nice sesame oil scent.
Another liquid packet – the spicy component perhaps?
Yep – has some heat!
The sauerkraut pouch.
A decent amount and has a nice scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green onions. The noodles are excellent – nice texture and chew. The flavoring is a little oily and bland. There’s a bit of spiciness there. The sauerkraut’s kind of interesting – a nice crunch to it but not a strong flavor. Left wanting a little more flavor. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.
