So here’s the second of the Gomex noodles. I’ve never seen them other than the two I’ve rated – pretty interesting. They’re from Vietnam and sound interesting, so let’s give em’ a try…
Some powder and some seasoned oil – rather murky…
Oh yeah this one looks a little funky. Spicy and sour shrimp sounds good though.
Click image to enlarge. I dropped an egg in with the boiling noodles. So here we are. The noodles took on the broth’s flavor, which was a little on the odd side. It’s almost kind of sweet, but spicy and salty too. I don’t really detect a really shrimp-like flavor here. It’s edible but not great. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars.
Here’s a commercial for these…
…and here’s my 3 minute noodle timer I made. Just cover your Cup o Noodle and hit play. when it’s done – bam! You’ve got a cooked Cup o Noodles!
My favorite is Maruchan Oriental flavor. I also like sweet and sour soup. So one day I decided to get creative. I added rice wine vinegar (to taste) and Olek Sambal (I like mine spicy) to my bowl of cooked ramen. Now it’s one of my favorite ways to eat ramen. If you haven’t tried it, give it a try. I’d like to know how you rate it.
I can tell you right now – shazam! That Sambal Oelek has a mean punch! Hot stuff! Would love to try that recipe someday soon!
