  • Apong – An Indian rice wine indigenous to the Mising tribe, from the Northeastern states of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
  • Ara – Bhutanese rice, millet, or maize wine
  • Brem – Balinese rice wine

Chunks of chicken and liquid.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and Hachi habanero curry shichimi. The noodles hydrated exquisitely – not at all spongy which I thoroughly appreciated. The broth is complex – wolfberry was prevalent and a nice rich chicken and herbs flavor was throughout. Impressed. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710199077849.
