Today we’ve got the last of the four varieties sent by Three Meters Noodles. It’s been a tasty ride! Let’s give this final variety, a sesame paste noodle a try.
Three Meters Noodles Sesame Paste – Taiwan
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 1000ml boiling water. Boil for 4 minutes and drain. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added scallions, fried onion, shichimi togarashi and sesame seeds. The noodle came out very nicely and has a nice gauge and mouthfeel. The flavor… Well, like all the other sesame paste varieties I’ve had, there are pluses and minuses. The plus is that it’s tasty and has a kind of peanut butter flavor and is tasty. The minus is that the noodles are really really dry. I personally like broth free noodles to have at least a little slickness – which these have absolutely none of. Not their fault; that just how the dish is usually served. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. No barcode.
