I found this at a large Asian grocery in Bellevue, Washington recently. It was the last one – I’m guessing part of a special promo for Lunar New Year. My guess is that this is going to be in the vein of the hot spicy stir fried noodles of South Korea, but in a Chinese way? I don’t know for sure, but it sounds interesting. Let’s give it a try!

Detail of the large packaging (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, To prepare, boil noodles for 4-5 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents and combine. Finally, tio with garnish and enjoy!
One of the individual packs.
The noodle block.
A wet sauce sachet.
A dry garnish sachet of sesame seed and coriander.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, chabe sambal, thai basil, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and spring onion. The noodles came out good enough – nice chew. The sauce was more than ample to coat everything evenly. As far as being ultra spicy, it was spicy, but not blowing my mind or making me run for yogurt or tea. It was a nice balance of savory and spicy which I enjoyed for the most part. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6935270641292.
