Every once in a while, I dig through all the noodles and other things I have and this popped up. Actually, the other day I found a slew of expired stuff from 2018 and 2019 – like expired I mean well over a year! Tossed about 25 pounds of stuff, sadly. Luckily I’ve still got a bunch of stuff to review. This one seemed like an interesting one to do since although it’s not an instant noodle, it’s something you’ll eventually run into on the instant noodle aisle. So sit back, relax, don’t have a cow because it’s neither ramen nor a noodle, and check out rice porridge from Vietnam.

Finished (click to enlarge). The porridge came out really nice – texture was a kind of lumpy and creamy kind of thing – not lumpy as in prepared incorrectly, but lumpy as in it has a nice texture and isn’t a monotone affair. The flavor of seafood is prevalent and nicely represented with flakes of fish throughout and a touch of heat. I don’t usually review porridge, but I really loved this. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.
