Meet The Manufacturer: #1689: Wugudaochang Tomato Beef Brisket Flavor Purple Sweet Potato Noodles

When I first saw this one, I knew it sounded interesting. Beef brisket and tomato? Sign me up! Then the purple sweet potato – I’ve been a fan of those since back when people called them Space Potatoes! This looks like a nice premium one – let’s give it a look as we start to wind down this great Meet The Manufacturer series.

Here’s the back panels of the box (click image to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add noodles to 600ml boiling water for 2 1/2 minutes. Add in contents of sachet and cook an additional 1 minute. Enjoy!

The noodle block is in one of these packages within the box.

Indeed, these are purple noodles!

An extremely large sachet/retort pouch.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added coriander. The noodles, made from purple potatoes have a nice texture to them – a little sturdier than your garden variety instant and they were very nice to chew. The broth is a thick beef and tomato affair, with a very luxuriant and rich texture to it – almost creamy in a way. The inclusion of large pieces of tomato and real beef brisket in there was admirable and very enjoyable. Premium bowl of noodles. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6936986858233.

The Spirit of the Chinese People: The Classic Introduction to Chinese Culture

This is a great documentary about the struggles industrialization can bring. It poses the question, “can the ancient indomitable will of the Chinese people save the heaven that is food?” I think so – we see some truly amazing people with strong will in this documentary and I think if anyone can, they can.


  1. I’ve really enjoyed this meet the manufacture series. Those look like very premium stuff. Hopefully I will be able to find some of those soon. Great post as usual Hans.
