#2259: Farmer’s Heart Pho Beef Flavor Vietnamese Rice Noodle Soup

Let’s start with the brand name of this one – Farmer’s Heart. I think many of you will be surprised that it’s a translation of a brand that’s very well known – Nongshim. Usually Nongshim’s flavors lean towards Korean flavors – logically. But this one’s definitely Vietnamese. I’m really curious about it also because not only are these rice noodles, but they can be made in the microwave. Let’s check it out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, beef, Huy Fong Sriracha chilli sauce, chilli flake and fried garlic. The rice noodles did very well from the microwave. Fully hydrated and a nice way about them. The broth has a nice pho taste -much better than I expected honestly. The supplied sriracha had a nice heat and taste but a bitter finish. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 031146033980.
