#3030: Nongshim Shin Black Spicy Rich Bone Broth Flavor – South Korea

#3030: Nongshim Shin Black Spicy Rich Bone Broth Flavor - South Korea

Here’s one I found at the new T&T Supermarket in Lansdowne Center up in Richmond, BC. A Shin Black bowl! I knew they must exist; I mean, there’s generally a pack, cup and bowl for everything that comes out of South Korea. Well, here it is. What’s interesting is that this isn’t available in the United States, and up in Canada it’s not a product of the Nongshim China factory, which most bowls up there seem to be.

I don’t know if I’ve seen it referred to as ‘spicy rich bone broth flavor’ either, but as ‘spicy pot au feu’ in the past. Also something interesting to note is that this one’s microwavable. Anyways a neat find and sounds like something neat to try today. Let’s get started.

NL8: Meet The Manufacturer: Nona Lim Laksa Rice Noodles + Thai Curry & Lime Broth

Laksa noodles paired with a curry broth – I can’t really think of anything so well matched. Although I usually think of Laksa a little further south of Thailand in places like Malaysia and Singapore, all the flavors from that area of Southeast Asia play very well together. Let’s give it a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, egg, tau pok, Dodo fish ball and nanami togarashi. The rice noodles were pretty good – decent consistency and very light chew. The broth had an underlying kind of green curry hit, but it felt like the lime really beat it into submission and overwhelmed it. Since these are two separate products, they get their own scores. The noodles score a 3.5 and the broth a 2.5. UPC bar code for noodles 859792002323. UPC bar code for broth 859792002293.

#2610: Meet The Manufacturer: Nona Lim Whole Wheat Ramen + Spicy Szechuan Broth

Meet The Manufacturer: Nona Lim Whole Wheat Ramen + Spicy Szechuan Broth

I thought maybe a whole wheat ramen noodle might pair well with Szechuan flavors. These look really interesting and to be honest, I have a partiality to whole wheat noodles. Let’s have a look!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added pork, nanami togarashi, spring onion, fried onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The whole wheat ramen is just excellent – It has a great chew to it and a nice kind of artisan quality. Very hearty. The broth has a nice spicy level and a rich flavor coming from many herbs and spice. Since these are two separate products, I’m giving the noodles 5.0 out of 5.0 stars and the broth 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code for noodles 859792002613.

#2609: Meet The Manufacturer: Nona Lim Pad Thai Rice Noodles + Vietnamese Pho Broth

Meet The Manufacturer: Nona Lim Pad Thai Rice Noodles + Vietnamese Pho Broth

So Pad Thai might immediately come to mind as that noodle dish with lots of thick peanutty sauce and some meat and veggies popular here in the United States. But you might not know it but pad Thai simply means Thai noodles, and they’re able to be used in anything. Today I’m going to juxtapose them with a Pho broth, broth from Nona Lim. Let’s get started.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Huy Fong Sriracha sauce and sliced jalapeno pepper. The noodles are great – nice gauge and worked good here. They come out very well. The broth is excellent – I would venture to say the best pho broth I’ve gotten not from a pho restaurant. As these are separate products, I give the noodles a 4.5 out of 5.0 stars and the broth a 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code for noodles 859792002309. Bar code for broth 859792002286.

#2606: Meet The Manufacturer: Nona Lim Pad See Ew Rice Noodles + Spicy Szechuan Broth

Meet The Manufacturer: Nona Lim Pad See Ew Rice Noodles + Spicy Szechuan Broth

So for this Meet The Manufacturer, things are a little different. Nona Lim makes noodles and broths, so you can mix and match them. First, we’ll start with these Pad See Ew Rice Noodles. Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about Pad See Ew –

The name of the dish translates to “fried (with) soy sauce” and it is very similar to the char kway teow of Singapore and Malaysia. Phat si-io is normally stir fried dry while another similar dish, rat na (in Thai) or lard na (in Laos), is served in a thickened sauce and generally has a lighter taste.[2][3]

Phat si-io is made with dark soy sauce (si-io dam), light soy sauce (si-io khao), garlic, broad rice noodles called kuaitiao sen yai in Thai (commonly abbreviated to just sen yai meaning “big strip”), Chinese broccoli, egg, and some form of thinly sliced meat — commonly pork, chicken or beef — or shrimp or mixed seafood.

Phat si-io is sometimes also called kuaitiao phat si-io, which reflects the general practice of using flat rice noodle as the main ingredient. However, other types of noodles may also be used.

Today, rather than attempting to make Pad See Ew from scratch, I thought I’d pair these noodles with one of their broth varieties – Vietnamese Pho. Let’s take a look at both of these products.

The Spicy Szechuan is another bone broth, made by stewing bones to release their flavor.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). To prepare, heat in a pot on the stove. Finally, enjoy with some Nona Lim noodles!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, fried onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles are very broad and flat and go pretty well here. The broth has a decent heat to it a rich flavor as well. I like how they did use a little Sichuan peppercorn in there – not a whole lot, but just enough. Since these are two separate products, I give the noodles a 4.25 and the broth a 5.0. UPC bar code for noodles 859792002316. Bar code for broth 859792002538.
