Eight Field Spicy Peanut Paste Noodle - Taiwan

Here’s one I found at 99 Ramen Market in Edmonds, WA recently. Lots of new Taiwanese varieties popping up there constantly. Spicy. Peanut. Let’s Take. A. Look!

Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). This is the label from one of the packages inside – there are four of them. Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles for 8 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A wet sachet of peanut paste.

A wet sachet of soy sauce.

Looks like a wet sachet of Sichuan pepper oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added black sesame seed, scallions, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and chili oil. The noodles are among my favorite across the spectrum, however it seems to me 8 minutes is  long time and loses the backbone in that extra cooking time. Nonetheless, the flavor and these noodles are such a pair that I really had to do everything to not inhale the plate. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4711467787533.
