Found this one up at Hen Long Market up in Canada recently. It was kind of spendy, actually and I remember seeing they had a miso variety too. These are made in Taiwan by Chering Chang- I had a little trouble figuring out what the brand was/what they’re called, but on a bar code search I found them on a Vegan website, so I’m guessing they may be Vegan friendly. Anyways, let’s take a look and give these a try!
LeeZen Hot & Sour Instant Noodles – Taiwan
An import/distributor’s sticker (click to enlarge).
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and sachet contents to 500ml boiling water and cover for 6~7 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
A non-fried noodle block.
A liquid base sachet.
A strong black vinegar scent.
A dehydrated bits sachet.
Vegetables and bits of tofu./
Finished (click to enlarge). Added dehydrated chives, Chinese sausage, and Salad Cosmo organic mung bean sprouts. Noodles came out nicely – nice gauge and chew. They kind of had their own flavor and didn’t take up much during the steeping process; almost buttery which I found fascinating. The broth had a nice hot and sour flavor which was adequately strong. I really like black vinegar and so a little stronger would have been nice. Heat level was there but not deadly. The included veg and tofu did well. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710589440604.
