This one came by way of the halalfoodblog.com – thank you! I’ve followed them for a while on Instagram and they’ve done posts about noodles before. They were in Uzbekistan visiting and showed some noodles in a shop – and I commented and they offered to send me some – and here is one of them! Very nice of them. So after a little research I’m finding that these are made in Russia – at least I’m 99% sure. This is the first Russian variety I’ve reviewed! Let’s check it out!
Big Bon Spice Mix Hot & Spicy – Russia
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether or not it contains meat. To prepare, add noodles and dry base sachet to a bowl along with 350ml boiling water. Cover for 45 minutes. Add in liquid base sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dry base sachet.
A light powder.
A liquid base sachet.
Thick and red!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, scallions, fried onion and chilli powder. The noodles had a kind of thicker than normal disposition and they had a decent chew to them compared to a standard instant. The broth, although advertised as spicy, wasn’t at all spicy to my detection. It was tasty though – kind of a beef meets spices thing. I think I tasted sage and thyme in there. Definitely had an eastern European kind of profile to it for sure. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4605496012337.
Here’s a guy reviewing a different Big Bon product – a tray with a retort pouch that contains sausages!
