I’ve tried all three of the other Xiao Ban Mian flavors. Their Traditional Shallot & Onion Oil variety hit #2 on the Top Ten Taiwan list last year. I’m stoked to be able to try this one – really don’t know what to expect, honestly. This is completely different from the rest. Let’s dive in!
Xiao Ban Mian Spicy Meat Paste Flavor Noodle – Taiwan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Guessing it contains meat from the name. To prepare, Add a bundle of noodles and cook 6~7 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
This packge has three servings. Note how the noodles are a little broad and flat unlike the other varieties’ noodles.
On of the liquid sachets.
A thick sauce.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added sliced red pepper, soft egg, fried onion and scallions. The noodles are excellent – thicker gauge providing a very hearty chew, yet not over chewy. The flavoring has a nice little punch of Sichuan pepper and it light and a little meaty. All wraps together very well. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4717011150728.
