I’ve seen these recently at our local 99 Ranch Market in Edmonds, Washington. They’re on the more expensive end – closer to $6USD which is pretty steep, but I wanted to do a Spicy Noodle Mukbang video, was in the mood for something new from Taiwan… This just smacked of something interesting to try. Not only that, it was in a box. I swear, although more expensive, little boxes that are fancy with instant noodles in them are pretty dang cool.
A reader told me that this guy, Nic Xie, is a well-known actor from China. Let’s check these out!
Chef Nic’s Noodles Hot And Spicy – Taiwan
Detail of the box (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles for 3 minutes and drain. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
A tight little noodle block.
A wet sachet. Watch the Instant Noodle Recipe Time video to see contents!
Another wet sachet.
Crushed Sichuan peppercorn.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added barbecue pork, scallions, a tea egg, and black sesame seeds. The noodles have a great gauge and mouthfeel – fat little chewy strands. They pick up the sauce well, which is an amalgam of spicy Sichuan pepper flavor and sweetness and saltiness. Really worked well together – love it. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897069140244.
