My son and I walked to the store the other day for some flowers and kamaboko. Of course, I can’t resist the noodle aisle and found 6 different styles of these little plastic noodle cups! Thought I’d try this one today. Let’s check it out!
The side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, empty everything into the cup and add boiling water to the top. Re-cover and steep for 3 minutes. Stir and eat!

An included fork! This is an interesting design; folds and snaps?
Here’s the fork in it’s final form.
The noodle block.
Powder base sachet.
Bits of green onion or chive in there.
Looks like a nice little assortment.
Seasoned oil sachet.
Finally, a sachet of very fine powder.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp and leeks. The noodles are a bit rubbery after the initial 3 minutes, but end up better with an extra couple minutes. They’re not bad, but not amazing. The broth is where it’s at in this one – has a nice shrimp flavor and a surprisingly good amount of heat from the chilli powder. The vegetables are alright too. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 8934684029649.
