An included fork!

The noodles.

A dry soup base sachet.

A powder with herbs mixed in.

An oil sachet.

Lots of little bits in there!


Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, basil, baked chicken, fried garlic and chilli flake. The noodles hydrated nicely and were of good nature. The broth was alright – kind of on the lighter side. I noticed a lot of floating bits that were much like TVP and seemed rubbery – I’m guessing fake chicken. This just didn’t work for me and really bummed me out. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8851876001316.

#873: Vifon Viet Rice Noodles Pho Ga Chicken Flavor

Something tells me this will taste just like chicken! Let’s see!

Here’s a closeup of the little red thing on the package – looks like a laughing flame demon of sorts.

Here’s the back (click to enlarge).

The rice noodle block.

Powder seasoning.

Yep – strong chicken taste.


Wow this is some spicy stuff! Kind of like Sriracha.

Veggie packet.

Lots of nice veggies!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a hard boiled egg with Cavender’s Greek Seasoning and some baked chicken with some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles are nice and light – flat and easy to break with the lips. The broth has a strong chicken flavor with a little heat from the sauce packet that came with it. The veggies are tiny bits and add a nice flavor. Good stuff! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 851683004027 .

#534: MAMA Pho Ga Oriental Style Instant Chand Noodles Chicken Flavour

So here’s something new – pho. Chicken pho. I think this probably won’t live up to its name but we’ll see.

One pouch…

Houses two packets… One powder one oil.

The oil is dark but I m not sure what it is – don’t think its sesame oil. The ingredients list on the back is definitely short quite a bit…

So yeah before anyone yells about it, the put sat on the stove for a couple more minutes than it should – I was putting dishes away. So it has the nice aroma of pho you’d get down the street from here. It’s got that basil and bean sprout melange scent and the basil taste is there just enough. List chicken flavor. I think it all goes together quite nicely. The noodles were a bit mushy but that was my fault and I know these noodles aren’t bad as they’re the same as in the Pad Thai and Nam Vang. This was good but it was really lacking something… A vegetable packet. What’s more, the vegetable packet would need the fresh stuff and I don’t know how they’d do that. I’m giving these noodles a 3.1 out of 5 stars. The highlight here was the broth and the noodles weren’t bad but I really would like some kind of vegetable packet here. Get it here.
