#3183: Uni-President Imperial Big Meal Super Hot Pot Beef Flavor – Taiwan

#3183: Uni-President Imperial Big Meal Super Hot Pot Beef Flavor - Taiwan

This one’s very interesting. This is from Taiwan but for the Hong Kong Market. Found it up in Canada at Aberdeen Centre at a little gift shop full of Hello Kitty and other stuffed animals in the back – it’s near the food court.

What’s interesting is that there’s no reason this should be in Canada – it’s got about as much business being there as it would in the United States – this beef wouldn’t be allowed. There’s no import/distributor sticker either. Hey – I’m not complaining, don’t get me wrong!

It’s interesting too how it mentions New Zealad and Australian beef is used. I’d love to see this using Taiwanese beef honestly, but that’s a little difficult as that’s more spendy. Taiwanese beef is really good, but I don’t think there’s enough beef there to facilitate the instant noodle industry of Taiwan. Anyways, let’s peel back the lid and try this Imperial Big Meal!

Thick sauce with chunks of beef.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added scallions. The noodles are pretty good; thy have a decent backbone to them. However, they just seem a little crumbly after 3 minutes and just don’t fit the bill; they’re the weakest part of this bowl. The broth on the other hand is rich and luxuriant – full of beef flavor and pieces of beef. A hard one o put down. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710088412089.
