The bowl – full of broth.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and jalapeno. Noodles are wheat and have a nice chew honestly – they work well with the soup. The soup has a nice beef and tang to it – maybe from the ginger? Slightly acidic – works very well. The included vegetables are nice and the beef is excellent. As far as being what I would compare to a pho I would get at a local restaurant? Worlds apart. But it’s quite good – happy about this one. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 077658313049.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2454: KOKA Silk Beef Pho Flavor Instant Rice Fettuccine - Singapore - The Ramen Rater - rice noodle

Today we have a rice noodle variety. Pho is a noodle soup that hails originally from Vietnam – here’s a little about it from Wikipedia –

Phở or pho[1] (pronounced variously as /fʌ/, /fɜːr/, or /f/;[2] Vietnamese: [fəː˧˩˧]) is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, rice noodles called bánh phở, a few herbs, and meat, primarily made with either beef or chicken.[3]

Pho is a popular street food in Vietnam[4] and the specialty of a number of restaurant chains around the world. Vietnamese people usually consume it at any time of day. It is often served with sriracha sauce. It originated in the early 20th century in northern Vietnam, and was popularized throughout the rest of the world by refugees after the Vietnam War. Because its origins are poorly documented,[5][6] there is significant disagreement over the cultural influences that led to its development in Vietnam, as well as the etymology of the word itself.[7] The Hanoi and Saigon styles of pho differ by noodle width, sweetness of broth, and choice of herbs. A related noodle soup, bún bò Huế, is associated with Huế in central Vietnam.

Around these parts, we have a multitude of small shops selling pho. Some places have adopted clever names like Pho Shizzle or What The Pho! Westerners tend to promounce o in pho like the end sound in mellow. The correct way is like promouncing it like ‘uh’ – people get kind of hot about this which I find to be funny. In my experience, as long as you are communicating what you need to communicate, as long as the person receiving the communication understands what you’re talking about, then it’s all good. Anyways, let’s peel back the lid on this bowl.

The noodles are wide and flat. The broth has a nice beef taste and the notes of cinnamon and anise I’d expect. The bowl’s included garnish went well and hydrated well. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.   EAN bar code 8888056510016.

#2259: Farmer’s Heart Pho Beef Flavor Vietnamese Rice Noodle Soup

Let’s start with the brand name of this one – Farmer’s Heart. I think many of you will be surprised that it’s a translation of a brand that’s very well known – Nongshim. Usually Nongshim’s flavors lean towards Korean flavors – logically. But this one’s definitely Vietnamese. I’m really curious about it also because not only are these rice noodles, but they can be made in the microwave. Let’s check it out!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains beef and fish. To prepare, add in powder sachet and fill to line with room temperature water. Microwave (1000W) for 3 minutes. Let sit for 1 minute in the microwave. stir and enjoy!

The sriracha sauce sachet.

Tasty stuff!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, beef, Huy Fong Sriracha chilli sauce, chilli flake and fried garlic. The rice noodles did very well from the microwave. Fully hydrated and a nice way about them. The broth has a nice pho taste -much better than I expected honestly. The supplied sriracha had a nice heat and taste but a bitter finish. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 031146033980.

#766: Fashion Food Beef Pho Flavour Instant Noodles

I’m going to go through three of these as they’ve been in the bottom of the hamper for a while. The come with their own bowl! Kinda neat but in the past, I’ve found them to be sorely lacking…

Here’s the noodle block.

Powder seasoning.

Seasoned oil.

Everything’s ready for some boiling water and some time.

Finished (click image to enlarge). First, the noodles. They’re not too bad – they’re slightly preseasoned. The broth is nice – has a somewhat beefy flavor and a little heat to it,. I’m surprised I like this one – this seems to be an exception to the rule as I don’t believe I’ve liked FF varieties before. Awesome! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 8850412371906 .
