Went to the 99 Ranch Market near us a few weeks ago and my son Andy picked this as something he would like to try. Well, today is the day to try it out! The first time I tried this one, I made it completely wrong. Here it is in review #68! Not good!
Back of the package (click to enlarge). Check out the instructions – this isn’t a single bowl of noodles, but rather a bowl of broth and a bowl of noodles that are enjoyed separately.
The noodle block.
The smaller packet, which seasons the broth.
Not a whole lot in this one.
The soybean paste which will coat the noodles.
This makes the noodles end up kind of like Jjajangmen but this is a Taiwanese version.
Here, Andy shows the proper technique: eat some noodles, slurp some soup!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Excellent! The noodles are nice – kind of stick together but that’s not a bad thing really. They have a slightly spicy and salty taste that is really nice. The broth cools the heat (Andy noticed that right away) and has a nice rich flavor. Good stuff – if you haven’t tried it, this is something unique people have really enjoyed. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars!

Here’s a Wei Lih commercial!
The paste is also quite popular on its own – get it here.
