This is one I brought back with me from Taiwan! Happy Cook is a brand that one of the factories in Taichung makes.
Hanging out and taking tea after touring the factory with the guys from Hung Guang. noodle company! I put the video I made while touring the factory at the bottom of the post so check it out! Let’s give the finished product a try!
Happy Cook Sichuan Spicy Flavor – Taiwan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to a pot of boiling water and cook for 5-6 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The first of two sauce sachets.
Has a soy scent.
The second sachet – oil this time.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Chinese sausage and sweet onion. The noodles are very wide and thin with an excellent chew – light and giving. The sauce is the fiery breath of Mala, whose Sichuan pepper heat means business. I like how the peppery oil has a kind of pinelike note to it – very good! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4717904326025.
Here’s the factory I ‘m talking about. They use fans and heat to dry out the noodles.
