#2728: Vifon Hoang Gia Instant Noodles With Minced Pork

#2728: Vifon Hoang Gia Instant Noodles With Minced Pork Mi Thit Bam Vietnam The Ramen Rater Hen Long Market

We found this one at a place called Hen Long Market up in Surrey, BC on a trip a few months back. Thanks to my friend Ken for telling me about this place! So this one’s from Vietnam and I don’t often have come across Vietnamese varieties like this one. Usually, I see the same thing again and again and this one is definitely different. Let’s have a look at this minced pork variety!

Stewed minced pork.

Finished (click to enlarge). Really bummed out by this one. First off, the noodles didn’t hydrate all that well in t he 3 minutes called for. After doing plating and pictures, they still didn’t seem right. The broth was salty and a kind of pork flavor to it. The saving grace of this one (why it didn’t get a lower score) was the meat sachet which has nice quality minced pork. 0.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8934561250067.

#1156: Vifon Oriental Style Instant Vermicelli Sour Crab Flavour Soup

Been some time since I’ve had a crab flavored noodle from Vietnam, so I thought why not today.. Looks cool – let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains crab.

The rice noodle block.

Soup base powder packet.

A light powder.

The vegetable packet.

Lots of little veggie pieces.

An unlabeled packet. Hmmm…

After a nibble, I’m going to guess this is fried shallot.

Finally, a surprise – a big retort pouch!

This must be the sour soup – looks to have lots of crab.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some imitation crab meat. The noodles are nice – light and plentiful. The broth is very rich and buttery with bits of the shallot floating around and other veggies too. Has a nice flavor and gives a warm cozy feeling. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8934561010043.

#668: Saigon Ve Wong Kung-Fu Instant Noodles Vegetarian flavor

Thought I’d eat this before it got too far out of date. Got it at 99 Ranch Market – my wife spotted it and lo and behold, I hadn’t reviewed it. Here we go…

Close up of the ingredients, directions and nutrition facts (click image to enlarge).

From left to right: seasoned oil, veggies and powdered seasoning.

Everything awaits the boiling water.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added one scrambled egg that I infused with Old Bay Garlic & Herb seasoning and also added a few splashes of Tabasco Jalapeno hot sauce. The noodles themselves aren’t too bad actually – almost a buttry flavor. The broth though was really bland I thought. Really lacked a lot of flavor. I ended up salting the noodles – something I only have done maybe twice. Not my favorite. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 8934684025573 .

#375: Vifon Pho Bo An Lien Vietnamese Style Instant Rice Noodle Beef Flavour

So here’s something new but kind of like a lot of other stuff…

Clockwise from top: powdered soup base, veggies and seasoned oil.

Sitting atop the noodles block. Looks like some broad noodles.

Click image to enlarge. Okay so the noodles are kind of broad, yeah. The broth is quite greasy. The noodles are mushy. The veggies are there but not enough. It doesn’t taste like beef pho. 0.5 out of 5.0 stars. Bummer, Vifon! Find it here.

#259: Vina Acecook Mì Lẩu Thái Instant Noodles Seafood Flavor

Here’s some more of the Vina Acecook stuff me and my lovely Kit found at HT Oaktree market last week. Seafood flavor!

Clockwise from top left: seasoned oil, vegetables, soup base and chili powder.

Clockwise from top left: powder soup base, veggies, seasoned oil and chili powder.

Click image to enlarge. I added an egg to the boiling noodles. This was excellent stuff! The noodles are appropriately decent, the broth was spectacular and the vegetables were very nice. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars – looking forward to reviewing more of this Vina Acecook stuff.

#6: Vifon Nam Vang Oriental Style Instant Noodle



Vifon: Nam Vang
Stars: ** 1/2
Notes: This stuff wasn’t bad – basically a typical salty rice noodle snack ramen from Vietnam. It would not do well with an egg though, as the noodles weren’t the most strong and a lot of them turned to an almost gelatinous state – not from overcooking I assure you. Other than the weak fortitude of the noodles, the broth was fine as were the dried vegetables.
