#3342: EDO Pack Sesame Oil Flavour Noodle – Hong Kong

#3242: EDO Pack Sesame Oil Flavour Noodle - Hong Kong

Alright so this one is made in Singapore, but it’s made for the Hong Kong market. It’s funny how products are made elsewhere for other countries, right? Well, you honestly should be used to it by now – Take the myriad of products in your home. If you have a Big Mouth Billy Bass on the wall, it’s made in China. Singing bass don’t seem like something very popular in China – could be wrong but who knows. Anyways, let’s crack this open and see what we have.

#3282: EDO Pack Spicy Flavour Noodle - Hong Kong

Okay so now that I’ve been doing a lot of weight loss and walking like a fiend (one might call me a White Walker – Game of Thrones reference, sorry), I’ve been running through shoes like crazy. I really like these $30 pairs I’ve been finding at Walmart up in Canada, but as you can guess, after a week there are holes in them. We went up in search for a new pair for me again (no luck grrr) and and during our time up there we hit Lansdowne Centre, a mall in Richmond. Well, there was a new store (at least I think it’s new but I don’t know how we could have missed it) that has a staggeringly wonderful noodle selection. The place is called Smart N Save and they’ve got some really neat stuff in there, including this one. Let’s check it out.

The noodle block.

A dual sachet – powder base on the left and oil on the right (watch the Instant Noodle Recipe Time episode below to see sachet contents).

A dry garnish sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, soft egg, chili flake, black sesame seeds, boiled pork, and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles are quite nice – they’re for Hong Kong, they’re non-fried, but they are manufactured in Singapore. My gut tells me these are made by KOKA S’pore. Excellent noodles, and the broth is no slouch either. It has a nice heat level and the flavor is a nice spicy with a kimchi flavor which is tart and tasty. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4895058312801.
