So today we kick off Meet The Manufacturer with a unique variety – pepper and sesame sauce. First, this is black pepper, not hot chill. Second, sesame sauce is completely different from sesame oil. Sesame sauce has a more peanut butter kind of texture and flavor whereas sesame oil has that strong sesame scent and saltiness. Let’s dig into this one and get things started!

I visited Mom’s Dry Noodle back in November, 2016. We traveled south to Tainan to visit a noodle factory – don’t worry, I won’t quit my day job when it comes to folding them, but flipping – that I can do!
