Today, we’ve got a nice one from Taiwan’s Wu-Mu. This is a newer variety that uses wide gauge noodles for a soup – something I find really interesting and not done nearly enough. Although these noodles are absolutely excellent in a dry noodle (without broth) setting, I think in soup they really excel too. Let’s see how these end up!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added scallions, soft egg, fried garlic and thin sliced beef. The noodles are broad and have a nice backbone to them. They’re chewy but not overly so. They compliment the broth which has a savory beef taste and just the right amount of spiciness to it. Very delicious! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710175574515.
