Sometimes it’s hard for me to pick what I want to review. I mean, I have quite a few options sitting next to me in the high security noodle vaults… So I took the box of samples over to my wife and opened it. There are six in all and the tops have different colors but no mention of what they are on top. I asked her to simply pick three. Well, here’s the first one.
Dry noodles from Taiwan seem to always have one thing in common no matter what company is selling them – a spicy Sichuan variety. Let’s have a look at this, the first review of a six review spotlight series on Mr. Noodle!
Mr. Noodle Sichuan Flavor Spicy Hot Noodles – Taiwan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). I removed color from the picture to make it easier to read on a screen. Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles in 1000ml wa ter for 5~6 minutes. Drain, saving 30~40ml liquid. Add noodles, liquid, and sachet contents to a bowl. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A liquid base sachet.
This looks to be the spicy sauce.
An oil sachet.
Has a sesame scent.
A liquid sachet.
Smells like soy sauce.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, spring onion and fried garlic. The noodles came out nicely – a gauge and chew I’m familiar with. The centerline of the noodle seems slightly thicker while the side are thinner, giving it a multi-textural property which offers excellent mouthfeel. The flavor is of soy sauce, peppery sauce and oil. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4713106500041.
