Another one found at Asian Family Market on 130th & Aurora . I’ve had Lan Zhou noodles before – and a few Shoo Loong Kan varieties (those were good). During my research on this variety, I’m bombarded by images of lovely beef and coriander aplenty, in really great bowls I wish I had. It makes me really want to go to China; definitely want to try Lan Zhou, the food of Henan, the food of Chongqing… Pretty much every province has their delicacies. Someday I hope. But today, I have this interesting box with a taste of China in it. Let’s give it a try.
Shoo Loong Kan Lan Zhou La Mian – China
An import/distributor sticker (click to enlarge).
Detail of the box (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat, but tend to doubt it. To prepare, boil noodles for 4 minutes (put liquid sachets in for a minute or so to preheat). It doesn’t say how much water to use – sounds like it’s on preference – but once the noodles are done add everything in. Finally, stir and enjoy!
A sachet of powder base.
A liquid soup base.
Another liquid soup base.
A sachet of vegetables.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added crushed red pepper, scallion, and sesame seed. Noodle has a great gauge and chew here. The broth was a salty and savory one with a nice spicy bite to it. Really liked this a lot – worth trying for sure. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6974780501337.
