#2223: KOKA Rice Noodles Fragrant Chicken Pho Ga Flavour

Here’s one that was sent to me from Australian by Jen – thank you very much! It’s pretty rare that I get anything from Australia and her package a while back was a trove of neat stuff! This one’s sold in Australia and elsewhere and made in Singapore by the folks at Tat Hui. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enblarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. to prepare, add noodle block to 450ml boiling water for 2 minutes. Add sachet contents. stir and enjoy!

The rice noodle block in its’ own pouch.

A dual sachet.

Dry soup base with a chicken scent.

A light yellow oil.

The garnish sachet.

Looks like fried onion.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, bird’s eye chillies and sous vide chicken with Lindberg Snider seasoning. The noodles come out well – wide gauge and very soft character. As per usual, I made a few cross cuts with a pair of kitchen scissors to make them more manageable. The broth had a very nice pho taste to it – detectable star anise notes in there and a nice chicken taste. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8888056810000.
