Here’s one I found at the new T&T Supermarket in Lansdowne Center up in Richmond, BC. A Shin Black bowl! I knew they must exist; I mean, there’s generally a pack, cup and bowl for everything that comes out of South Korea. Well, here it is. What’s interesting is that this isn’t available in the United States, and up in Canada it’s not a product of the Nongshim China factory, which most bowls up there seem to be.
I don’t know if I’ve seen it referred to as ‘spicy rich bone broth flavor’ either, but as ‘spicy pot au feu’ in the past. Also something interesting to note is that this one’s microwavable. Anyways a neat find and sounds like something neat to try today. Let’s get started.

The noodle block.
Loose bits from inside the cup.
A soup base sachet.
A spicy scented powder.
Another dry sachet.
A light powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Chinese sausage, scallion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Noodles hydrated well and had a great texture to them from the microwave. Broth had that standard Shin Black flavor – no surprises here. Tasty! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146042517.
