Here’s one that came by way as a Christmas gift from my friend and esteemed author Matthew Bellah of Port Townsend, Wa. My great thanks and appreciation to you, sir. This appears to be a vegetarian friendly bowl that is made in Vietnam and designed by a fellow here in the Pacific Northwest. Sounds interesting – I’ve seen these locally before, but never tried them. Let’s check it out!
Phonomenal Bowl – United States
Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add in sachets and boiling water to line. Cover for 1 minute. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).
A sachet of dry base.
A sachet of vegetables.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chicken baked with shawarma and paprika seasonings, crushed red pepper, spring onion. The rice noodles are thin and floppy – pretty standard for instant pho. The broth was light on flavor and vegetables about as expected. I just don’t really like instant pho like this all that much but was nice to try something new. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 861525000377.
