#2917: Kiki Noodles Mixed With Aged Vinegar

The last time I reviewed Kiki noodles was quite a while agoi. I remember that I really enjoyed them quite a bit – high quality noodles and good tasty flavor. Well, now they’ve come out with two new dry varieties – this one is aged vinegar and the other has a young vinegar. Sounds interesting to me – let’s give it a try!

Dark stuff – slightly lighter than the first dark stuff.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added scallions. The noodles were very good – great gauge and excellent chewiness. The flavor was very much black vinegar with a spiciness. The heat didn’t come from Sichuan pepper, I should add. The flavor was augmented with a soy sauce hit as well. Nicely rounded and tasty. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4713302680042.
