I remember when I was at the Taiwan International Food Expo 2017 and seeing the Wu-Mu booth. Two gentlemen were sitting and talking and I came over and introduced myself. They gave me a sample of this product and I haven’t had the chance to review it yet – which works perfect as it’s now being reviewed in a Meet The Manufacturer series./ Here’s what they have to say about this variety:
●Exclusively using the Matsu liquor which the factory has made for more than 60 years. The fragrance of the liquor is charming and rich.
●Utilizing the carefully selected fresh ingredients and traditional Chinese medicine such as angelica, ginger, wolfberry, garlic to mix a seasoning packet of medicinal foods flavor.
●Exceptionally fine ramen, which is made for copying the taste of hand-made vermicelli, in order to create a distinctive flavor.
Indeed, this sounds like a fancy variety and I’m very curious about it, that’s for sure! Let’s open up this package and investigate.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chicken with pepper and NuTek Salt For Life, and spring onion. The noodles are very good – like premium instants,. Liked the texture and chew on them very much. The broth had a very tasty and complex taste – I really liked the chicken taste augmented with the wolfberry and wine – it worked together in perfect harmony. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.. EAN bar code 4710175574409.
I really like this – I have so many binders full of noodle packaging and every once in a while, I will open one up and look through it. What’s interesting about food is that it has a way of entering your mind as well as your belly – a very strong sensory experience. I’ll look at packages and remember where I got it, things surrounding its preparation and so on.
