An included fork!

The noodles.

A dry soup base sachet.

A powder with herbs mixed in.

An oil sachet.

Lots of little bits in there!


Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, basil, baked chicken, fried garlic and chilli flake. The noodles hydrated nicely and were of good nature. The broth was alright – kind of on the lighter side. I noticed a lot of floating bits that were much like TVP and seemed rubbery – I’m guessing fake chicken. This just didn’t work for me and really bummed me out. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8851876001316.

  1. I thought these were pretty good myself. It is not “Knock your socks off” strong with Pho flavor, but there is a reason Pho takes a LONG time to make. The flavor is right, just not super strong. An approximation of Pho that is very tasty.
