#905: Tradition Vegetable Flavor Instant Noodle Soup

Not sure, but I don’t think I’ve ever had a green cup of noodles. Oh wait – I think the Mushroom & Chicken Pot Noodles was green… anyways, here’s a green colored, Kosher cup noodle by Tradition.

The noodle block. Has seasoning infused.

Some veggies poking around at the bottom.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added stir-fry veggies and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are pretty darn good – very light and soft. The broth has an interesting vegetable medley kind of taste to it. If you’re looking for something groundbreaking here, you won’t find it – however you will find an a-ok comfortable cup noodle. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 735375603258

I was thinking, what would be a good video for these noodles. Look what I found on YouTube – This is awesome!

#902: Sunlee Pho Bo Instant Rice Stick Beef Flavour

I reviewed another version of this in #502. It looks like this one is somewhat different; different color packet and a different sized rice noodle chunk. Let’s try it!

Here’s detail of the writing on the label (click to enlarge).

Sweet – forks are rad!

Here’s the rice stick. Like a bird nest.

The powder base.

Lots of fine powder.

Seasoned oil.

The veggie packet.

Nice little assortment.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added the dregs of my freezer bag of green bell pepper and broccoli, some Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake and some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles are pretty good – easily broken by the lips with a crumbly texture and fun chew. The broth isn’t bad; it has a bit of beef flavor but mostly is overwhelmed by a strong sweet basil flavor. I love sweet basil in real pho noodles, but this just made me want pho take out. The veggies were okay but I wish there were more here and there were some TVP beef bits that were nice additions. All in all, not too shabby but room for improvement. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 761934016535 .
