#2800: Vedan Original Beef Flavor Noodle

Here’s one I brought back in my suitcase from Taiwan from my November 2017 trip to Taiwan for the Taiwan International Food Expo. I really hope to live in Taiwan someday. No joke – it’s really that neat there. Let’s crack this meaty beast open and see what’s inside. By the way, no, you’re not going to find this in the United States – it’s got a retort pouch full of meat and that kind of makes it off the table for export. Let’s begin.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Good noodles – nice gauge to them . Quantity was fine and chew was good too. The broth was… tasty! A lot of the time these varieties with retort pouches have a lighter broth. This one delivered nicely. Finally, the meat was pretty good, although on the dry side. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710110226608.
