This is a longstanding favorite of mine and probably the first cold noodle I came in contact with. First time I had it I wasn’t so sure, but over time it definitely grew on me. This is usually enjoyed in the summer months, but seeing as the folks at Paldo sent it to me recently, I’d give it a go right now. Let’s cook it up!

Finished (click to enlarge). I deleted the regular ‘finished’ pic on accident – I need to get more sleep… Added bamboo shoots, egg, spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and chili oil. Noodles come out nicely and have a great tooth served chilled. The flavor is a hot and spicy, sweet and savory hit – definitely a lot hotter than I remember and it seems my ability to handle heat has greatly diminished over the last few months. But I still enjoy it. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8809296884842.
