These came by way of James from Lakeside California and looks like Snapdragon has dressed up their packaging yet again. I will admit I’ve never been exceedingly enthralled with their range, save a couple of varieties. Not only that, I’m rarely enthused about any pho instants I’ve tried. But I’m in the mood so these at least have that going for them. Let’s give them a try!
Snapdragon Vietnamese Vegetable Pho – United States
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. TO prepare, add everything to the bowl and boiling water to line. Cover for 3~5 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dry sachet of soup base.
A sachet of oil.
A sachet of vegetables.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Huy Fong sriracha, coriander, and pepper flake. There was an abundance of soft rice noodles in this one. We shall start there. The hallmark of pho is all the attention given to broth. My guess is that when they used a correct amount of broth vs noodle ratio, people were irritated that it wasn’t as filling as they wanted so they just loaded it up. Understandable, however this really didn’t resemble pho. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 815055010078.
