#855: Vina Acecook Bestcook Instant Noodles Hot & Sour With Shrimp Flavour

Here’s a new one – sounds good to me – kind of funny having two instants that are ‘hot and sour’ flavored in a row…

Hey – a new fork!

The noodle block.

Powder seasoning.

Slightly granular in nature.

There are two liquid packets.

Dark and thick.

This is a seasoned oil.

Looks interesting…

The veggie and seafood packet.

I must say – I’m quite impressed with the variety here.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some bell pepper, onion, broccoli, odeng (Korean fish cake), hard boiled egg with Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning and a few squirts of Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles are thin, tasty and buttery – exceptional. The broth has a nice spicy, sour and tasty flavor. The vegetable/seafood mixture wasn’t bad; I would say it adds more to the broth than as something that stands out on its own. This was really quite good – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars – I’m impressed.  UPC bar code 8934563501167 .

#362: Vina Acecook Daily Instant Noodles Mi Canh Chua Hot & Sour With Shrimp

So here’s another of Vina Acecook’s line of ‘Daily’ instant noodles, hot & sour with shrimp. Sounds good to me; the picture on the front is definitely enticing…

Four packets – that’s always nice. Here we have [clockwise from top left] soup paste, powdered soup base, seasoned oil and veggies as well as dehydrated shrimp.

Clockwise from top: veggies ‘n shrimp, seasoned oil, soup powder, liquid soup paste.

Click image to enlarge. So I added a couple of fried eggs, some fried shallot, a little kizami shoga (ginger you’d find in yakisoba) and a little pepper on the eggs. This is one of the better bowls of noodles I’ve had in quite some time. I become quite fond of how Vina Acecook blends its veggies – there’s always some nice sweet basil in there and it really comes through in the flavor of the broth. The noodles were pre-seasoned and so the sesame oil-esque flavor is easily detected in this soup. The noodles themselves are light and plentiful – not chewy but not spongy. The vegetables really boost on re-hydration which is nice. There was a little hot and a little sour; kind of like Tom Yum soup but much lighter. The eggs and other flavors on top made it absolutely perfect. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars for this one! Find it here.

I like how colorful the Vina Acecook commercials are.
