381: Saigon Ve Wong Kung-Fu Artificial Beef Flavor Vietnam Flavor

So I’ve reviewed quite a few of these so had to look to make sure I hadn’t already! But nope not yet so here we go!

Three packets – powder soup, seasoned oil and veggies and TVP meat! TVP is textured vegetable protein. It’s some amazing stuff!

Done well, TVP can be really nice – you can see the funky bits in with the veggies.

Click image to enlarge. Added two fried eggs and a little Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning. Shazam! Wow very tasty! The noodles were just right and the broth was a little spicy but also nice and hearty. The Veggies were everywhere and the TVP meat bits were the best I’ve ever had – chewy and almost fatty! I really am quite impressed with this one! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars!

#380: Assi Brand Pho Vietnamese Noodle Soup

So here’s some interesting stuff. It doesn’t say its any particular flavor other than ‘pho.’ Not beef or veggies or chicken. I’m going to guess beef. The picture looks kinda beefy.

Serious labeling here – paste soup, powder soup. Kind of makes my comments here pointless. On the obverse of the powder soup is the list of ingredients.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen that, nor have I see the measurements as on these.

The noodles are cool looking – very uniform. The paste was asking for a little taste – very spicy!

Click image to enlarge. Added two fried eggs and a pinch of Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning.  So this is some awesome stuff! The noodles have a nice freshness to them. They don’t seem like they’re fried. The broth and veggies are really really good – some spicy bit in there that have my tongue burning!!! Good quality going on here. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

#352: Maruchan Chili Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

So my friend Todd hooked me up with this stuff – thanks man! Haven’t seen this one before, so let’s give it a try.

What a standard single packet of domestic made ramen noodle soup seasoning! This should be interesting enough I think; usually I see hot flavored packets of flavoring out of Korea and Thailand but really not so much out of the USA.

Dark red and angry! Wasn’t expecting that… Was very nice to look at the packet ingredients and see chili as the second one! Impressive…

Click image to enlarge. The finished product. Added a couple hard boiled eggs, some Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning and a little Amanfopong chili powder. Was reasonably ‘hot & spicy’ flavored for a domestic product. It kind of ended there though – would’ve been nice if it had maybe more of a veg flavor too. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. Get it here.

#297: Rhee Bros Assi Brand Wellbeing Hot & Spicy Rice Noodle With Kimchi Flavored Soup

So here’s another Rhee Bros. Assi Brand Wellbeing noodle pack comin’ atcha.

I really like how these noodles look – very neat and tidy, as is the flavor packet.

Awaiting boiling water and a record on top.

Added two fried eggs as this was breakfast and also threw a pinch of Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning atop the eggs for a little flavor but mostly aesthetics.

Noodles are good – there’s a decent kick of spiciness going on that is absorbed by them. The broth is quite spicy hot, and the small amount of vegetables aren’t too bad. I really would’ve liked more veggies though. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.
