#1663: Vina Acecook King Chef Authentic Kimchi Flavour

Here’s one from Vietnam. Vietnamese instants usually tend to be pho flavors for the most part, but a lot of them are Thai or in this case, South Korean styled. Let’s see why this one’s leaning South Korean, other than the flavor.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free, but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 500ml water and add noodle block. Cook 3 minutes, then add in contents of sachets. Cook another 2 minutes, stir and enjoy!

The noodle block – the noodles look to be thick like South Korean ramyun.

The soup base sachet.

Has a spicy and acidic scent.

The vegetables sachet.

A decent amount!

A chilli powder sachet.

Smells spicy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles definitely bulked up a lot like ramyun. They had a nice gauge and chew and were ample in portion. The broth was quite nice – kind of a creamy and spicy kimchi flavor ala Korean styles. A lot of hydrated vegetable matter was there and quite good. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8934563715205.

Oh! Ricey Instant Rice Noodle Pho Bo Soup (Beef Flavor) – 2.5oz (Case of 24)

#1423: Vina Acecook King Chef Seafood With Kimchi Flavour

Here’s another one we got up in Canada earlier this year during my birthday trip! I wasn’t sure at first if I’d reviewed these; a long time ago I reviewed a series of products by Vina Acecook called King Cook. This is King Chef, so it’s different! I wasn’t sure when I was looking at them up in Canada – glad I went ahead and snagged them. The more noodles, the better. Let’s have a look!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, boil 2 cups water and add noodle block for 3 minutes. Lower heat and add sachet contents and cook for 2 more minutes. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The powder base sachet.

A fine powder.

The vegetables sachet.

Seaweed amongst other things.

A little sachet of chilli powder!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added Midori Farm Kimchi, sweet onion, bell peppers, and shrimp. The noodles have a round shape and a standard gauge. They have a good amount of chewiness despite 5 minutes of cooking – they’re not mushy or spongy. The broth has a kimchi and shrimp flavor. The veggie sachet had a ton of seaweed and it hydrated well – nice big pieces floating around. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8934563714208.
