#3488: Cao Is Starving Dried Noodles Chongqing Style - China

Right now it’s about 3 weeks until Lunar New Year aka CNY. This is another neat variety found at 99 Ranch Market. They’ve got lots of treats and specialty items to celebrate the holiday and to be honest, this is one of my favorite times of year. This will post probably 3 months afterwards though. Special thanks to Annie T. for help in translation! Let’s check it out!

A fresh noodle pouch.

A wet sachet.

A second wet sachet.

A dry sachet of garnish.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion. The noodles are good – nice thick gauge and fresh affectation. The flavor is combination sweet and Sichuan pepper bounce with a lot of Sichuan pepperiness. A lot of sesame seeds in this one as well. A lot of Sichuan pepperiness but not to the point of hell. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 6949656160031.
