Well, it has been a long time coming but here it is. This is the one I’ve been looking for. For three years. Why so hard to get? It’s really popular in Taiwan – why couldn’t I get it? Simple. Beef. There’s a big pouch of beef in here – not artificial beef, but real beef. I got this in Taiwan and brought it back with me. It’s kind of stupid; if someone sent this to me in the mail, it’d get stopped by the USDA inspectors that check the mail. I go there and pack it in my stuff, it comes through fine. What’s nice too is that it is in perfect condition; like I went to the store here and bought it and brought it home. Let’s crack this thing open and take a gander at this huge pack of noodles.

Here’s the beef!
Finished (click to enlarge). Decided to show this one without garnish. The noodles are nice – flat and a little broad with a soft chew. A decent amount of them as well. The broth has a beef taste to it with a surprisingly light Sichuan chilli taste – I did expect a little more in the fiery department. The broth has a rich beef flavor and oiliness to it, just wish it had had a little more flavor than it did. The beef was very nice – a good quantity as well which really bumped up the game on this one. Not disappointed and thrilled I finally got to review it! 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s another one of the great varieties sent by Joe & Gill of the UK – thanks again! Chilli Beef Pot Noodle. Looks interesting to me!

Powder and noodles. See, British instant noodle cups are different. Instead of a broth that is thin, it comes out more as a thick sauce or gravy.
It comes with a packet of chilli sauce – here’s the front and back.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added broccoli, sweet onion, green bell pepper, fried egg and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are the standard broad and slightly crumbly and thick Pot Noodles. The flavor is a little funky – beef flavor is there. The sauce is impressive – I’ve had other varieties of ‘spicy’ Pot Noodle before and this stuff is very hot. Kind of acidic too. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8712566158386 .
