Alright, so I reviewed this one back in October of 2011. This was review #529- well over 2000 reviews ago. Just saying 2000 reviews ago seems crazy. Anyways to be blunt, I really didn’t like this one back then., My wife said it smelled like cooked asparagus. I’m curious whether it’s not going to be something I enjoy; about 7 years later. Hope I do! Let’s take a look.

The soup base has a strong scent or some kind of pepper.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, Salad Cosmo organic mung bean sprouts, spring onion, cilantro and chicken baked with pepper, chilli oil, and Salt For Life. The noodles as usual have that firm and slightly heavier nature I enjoy compared to a standard instant. The broth has a peppery chicken flavor – kind of a ‘south of the border’ kind of taste.  I’m glad I had the chance to give this one a second go. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 076186000127.
