An oil sachet.

Definitely detcting a sesame oil scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sous vide chicken (immersion cooked at 146 degrees Fahrenheit for two hours) seasoned with Lindberg-Snider seasoning. The noodles hydrated nicely and have a good texture – the three minutes allotted gives them body and a soft chew. The broth has a nice chicken and sesame taste which works well with the noodles. Finally, the corn and seaweed hydrated very well, but the chicken had a slight toughness to it still which resolved during the meal. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878650095.

#2139: Fuku Superior Soup Instant Noodle (Made In Thailand)

Here’s a special one sent by Apple Daily news of Hong Kong. They asked if I’d do a comparison between this, the Thai version and the Vietnamese version of the Fuku Superior Soup for a special news story. Now these are both made in different places, but they’re for the Hong Kong market. anyways I figured hey – why not? This sounds interesting – let’s take a look!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free. to prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

A granular powder with flecks in it.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion in the shape of a letter ‘T.’ The noodles in this one have a nice gauge but are on the softer side; not a bad thing, but a little more chewiness would have been nice. The broth has a very tasty kind of salty, eggy, sweet and garlic taste to it. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878650019.
