Finished (click to enlarge). Used kitchen scissors to but the vermicelli after cooking. The vermicelli hydrated nicely and was of a good gauge. It was perfectly done and not tough, but had a nice amount of backbone and chew to it. The broth was an oily and spicy concoction – with a nice beef flavor and heat supplied by Sichuan peppers. The meal was augmented by the supplied vegetable sachet which not only contained spring onion but pieces of real beef which hydrated very well and were of a good quality and quantity. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.
