Here’s another one I brought home from Taiwan in November 2017. Thanks again to friends on facebook for helping with the translation.
So this one features a spicy Sichuan pepper heat along with a retort pouch full of pork! Let’s have a look at this one – something you’ll never be able to find here in the United States!

Thick and oily!
The retort pouch, full of meat!
Oh yeah – now you’re talking!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion. The noodles have a nice flat broad shape. RThey have a sturdier chew than others I’ve had as well. The broth is hearty, however, the level of Sichuan pepper spiciness was a little on the lackluster side. Bit of vegetable floated around here and there. The retort pouch added pork and sauce which added an extra heartiness. The pork was surprisingly sweet – I expected a spicier taste. Whether expected or not, it was welcome. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.
