Alright – this is the last of the reviews for the Uni student in Taiwan – thanks again for sending these – it’s been fun and quite truly an honor that someone going for their Master’s degree is asking me for help!
Wondering what’s up with the name? Well, 449 sounds like the word for slurp in Chinese (thank you Kyle K for helping me out with this)! I’m guessing this one will have a Sichuan pepper flavor to it. Let’s find out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat – check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 450ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Drain, saving water. add sauce to noodles and silver sachet to drained water. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The liquid base sachet.
A thick sauce.
The soup base sachet.
A light powder with little bits in there.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried salted beef (salted with Salt For Life) and scallion. The noodle has a great Sichuan pepper spiciness. Not extremely salty flavor. The noodle itself is a little on the regular instant side – would have been nice to see an upgrade there. The broth had a very good flavor and worked well with the noodle back and forth. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710110233194.
