During my 2017 trip to Taiwan, I visited a 7-Eleven in Taipei. I pointed out a variety and my friend corrected my speech. I thought for years this brand was Ve Wong – pronounced vee wong. Actually, it’s more like way wong. It appears I was way wrong on this. But now I know! Yeah, poor joke. Roll your eyes and let’s have a look at this neat variety!

The noodles came out very well – good gauge and feel and really worked well with the soup. The soup was surprisingly rich and had a thickness t it I didn’t expect but thoroughly enjoyed. This one was very true to name – it tasted like garlic and pork that had been stewed and I enjoyed that. In addition, a nice amount of vegetables in there including cabbage was very good. From the package, I didn’t expect this to be very good, however I’m thoroughly impressed. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710008217558.
Two things I really enjoy are pork and garlic. Two more are curry and bacon. But hey – today it’s garlic and pork and I’m pretty happy about that. Now the question is: can a product made to have lots of protein and vitamins and be made to be healthy taste good. I’m really hoping so! Every once in a while there are game changing products in the instant noodle world and this could very well be one of those. But no way to find out until it gets a taste. Well, let’s hit it!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, nanami togarashi, spring onion, umemaki, soft egg and chashu pork. Noodles are flat and very soft – but have a very hearty tooth without being gritty. The broth was very light but had a decent taste to it. Vegetables included cabbage which was great. Was surprised also as with the last review how filling these are for being on the lighter and healthier side of the coin. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. No bar code.
