Here’s another one I received from a University student in Taiwan – thanks again! She’s working on her Master’s thesis and wanted info from me on a few products and what I thought of them – an honor! Let’s check out this variety with a Korean influence.
Vedan Wei Wei Premium Korean Spicy Beef Instant Noodle – Taiwan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add everything but the large retort pouch to 500ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in retort pouch contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dry base sachet.
Powder with bits of vegetable.
Another dry base sachet.
Unsure – white pepper?
A large retort pou ch.
Rich color and lots of beef.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles were just plain weird here. I don’t know why, but they really did not feel right compared to the other varieties I’ve had in this premium range. The broth had a ramyun kind of taste with a decent kick of spiciness. The beef was of good quality, however was also just not quite right. I think the issue here might be that Koreans do Korean food best while Taiwanese do Taiwanese foods best. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710110232883.
I don’t know much about this guy other than he’s pretty popular – does a lot of promo for Vedan.
