A grip of noodles.

A dry sachet of soup base.

A wet seasoned oil sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu, marinated egg, narutomaki, Lao Gan Ma Spicy Chili Crisp, black sesame seed, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and spring onion. Noodles are great – straight and with a soft tooth. Broth is luxuriant – pleasantly spicy with a nice rich character and amazing oiliness. Love this one. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901726014400.
