#891: Vina Acecook Hao Hao Mushroom Flavour Instant Noodles

More mushroom noodles. They certainly looks nice from the pictures on the package – hao hao about we give ’em a try? Ugh…

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

Powder seasoning.

Bits’n’pieces in there, too.

Oil packet.

Looks like vegetable oil.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added yellow onions, broccoli, green bell pepper and Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles aren’t too bad – pretty standard Hao Hao kinda stuff. The broth is light and mas a mushroom flavor. This is pretty basic – nothing fancy; if you want something with a mushroom taste, I think this will work for you. I found it kind of lackluster – I really like Vina Acecook’s products usually, but this one was very meh. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8934563106164 .

#861: Vina Acecook Hao Hao Mi Chay Vegetarian Flavour

This looks like something good. The last one I reviewed wasn’t the best, so hopefully ol’ number 861 will be kinder and gentler.

I am going to say at the outset here that I find it really interesting that twice now I’ve had Vietnamese vegetarian noodles, but there’s no veggie packet. Seems kind of odd! I looked and out of four that I will have done now, only one will have included veggies. Also, this will be the second instant noodle review of the day that will be steeped!

Noodle block – pre-seasoned and crunchy.

The powdered soup base.

This is a seriously light powder. Tried a little taste and kind of got a flavor reminiscent of fettucine flavor Noodle Roni!

Seasoned oil.

I’m gonna figure it’s the black pepper and chilli that are the solid bits.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added the rest of my bag of bell pepper and broccoli (that’s what all those little green bits are), a little onion, a two egg omelet with 2 slices of fat free processed cheese, Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles are pretty good – although really nothing amazing. The broth is very mellow and subtle. Not bad. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8934563163150 .

#816: Vina Acecook Oh! Ricey Phnom Penh Style Instant Rice Noodles

Back in Washington! We had a great trip down to the Bay Area – saw the San Francisco Giants play (and win) at AT&T Park, went to Six Flags in Vallejo, CA and lots of other fun things. On the way home, we stopped at the Uwajimaya in Beaverton, Oregon. Found ten new varieties I’d never seen before and here’s one of them. Sounds good! Gonna give it a try.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks like you steep this one.

Rice noodles in here…

A packet of dry seasoning.

Has a kind of sweet taste to it. Upon looking up Phnom Penh Style on google, I found this story – mentions using rock sugar.

Seasoned oil.

Lots of little bits and pieces in there.

Veggies are usually quite good from this brand.

Lots of little straight pieces.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some veggies. The noodles are great – soft and seperate easily. The broth has a nice sweet flavor along with a lsight spice. The supplied veggies compliment very well – not only as a garnish but are appealing to look at. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8934563453145 .

Here’s a demo of ‘steeping.’
