Here’s another one I found in Taipei – this one was the last instant noodle I bought there.
Here (click to enlarge) I am with the bowl in my backpack. I think I got just about every variety they had at this 7-Eleven, one of the over 2,000 7-Elevens in Taiwan. They’re everywhere – moreso than we have Starbucks in the USA (oh and they have Starbucks in Taiwan as well). Big shout out and thank you to James Lee for translating this one – I thought it might be a stewed pork variety but I was way off! Let’s crack it open and have a look!
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat. To prepare, add in sachets and boiling water to fill line. Cover for 4 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.
A dry soup base sachet.
Has a kind of vinegarr scent.
The vegetables sachet.
Looks like kimchi!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, fried tofu, beef, sweet onion, spring onion and chilli flake. The noodles came out very nice – a lot of them and they’ve got a flat and slightly broad characteristic. The broth was a little thinner than I’d expected, however it brings a nice pickled vegetable flavor to the table which works very well with the bits of kimchi which hydrated nicely. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.
