Here’s another one I found during a November 2016 trip to Taiwan. I found this one at Carrefour in Taipei at the Miramar Entertainment Center. So one thing I found while there was that almost everything (unless you go to a Family Mart of a 7-Eleven) comes in a multi pack. I really didn’t want to get any of those – they take up extra space in luggage and a lot of the time they were really big multi packs. This one’s from Vietnam and looks to be a shrimp variant.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains animal products. To prepare, add everything to as bowl and add 400ml boiling water. Cover for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The dry base sachet.
Looks like bits of vegetable and a powder mixture.
A liquid base.
A seasoned oil.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, 31-40 count shrimp and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles are very soft. They’re definitely a gauge I’ve found in many Vietnamese varieties before and they work well. The broth has a kind of sour and spicy taste to it which I liked. It’s very thin which is logical for the region and tasted good to me. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8936010680128.
