The noodle block.

A dry powder sachet.

A wet soup base.

A freeze dried solid block.

A special garnish.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, squid, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, chili oil, sesame seed, spring onion. Noodles were thick and in my opinion, overly chewy after the 5 minute mark . A little more time and they were a little more palatable, but not very much more. Broth had a very tasty seafood and pork overture and myriad additions such as cabbage and seafood. Left me feeling a little flat with the noodle, unfortunately. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901990361293.
