Here’s the second of the Happy Noodle varieties sent to me from Taiwan. The first one was really quite good and so curious about this second one. The box is interesting – kind of looks like a tissue box in a way but definitely nothing like that inside. There are four packages inside and they are accompanied by four sachets. Let’s take a look at this unique variety from Taiwan!

A lot of pretty meaty looking sauce!

Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles are sturdy and have just a perfect chew and mouthfeel. The meat and vegetables were alright. I found myself wishing there was a little more saltiness. Also, and this is kind of nit picky I’ll admit, when stirring everything up, I found things didn’t distribute freely, leaving plenty of gaps in flavor throughout. This still didn’t keep me from thoroughly enjoying this one. Nice flavor and premium quality. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  No bar code.
