I’m pretty sure this is the first Baijia bowl I’ve reviewed. For the longest time, I was extremely leery of these; I have a couple Baijia products I really disliked. However, after some time, I found that my tastes have really changed (especially after tring different things overseas and reviewing hundreds of instant noodles) and now I’m keen on giving them a new look. Well, let’s check this one out!
Detail of the distributor/import sticker (click to enlarge).
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add in sachet contents and 500ml boiling water. Cover and let steep 5-6 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

An included fork!
The vermicelli, made from sweet potato.
The dry soup base.
Beans and veggies with a copious amount of MSG.
The liquid sachet.
Thick and oily.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added thin sliced beef, spring onion, crushed red pepper and star anise. The vermicelli has a kind of sliminess on the outside with more of a chewiness inside. It’s easier to eat if you use a pair of kitchen scissors and make a couple snips through all of it. The broth has a nicely spicy taste to it. The vegetables hydrated well – the beans went surprisingly well in this one. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6926410321136.
