Here’s another one sent by a reader named Colin – thanks! He’s sent quite a few! This one’s from Vietnam – haven’t reviewed many from there in a while… Let’s have a look!
The distributor/import sticker.
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add everything to a bowl. Add 400ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
Just letting you know – this is high grade soup.
A fine powder.
An oil sachet.
An orangish oil.
The vegetables sachet.
Looks like spring onion or chives.
A little chilli powder sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, baked chicken, hard boiled egg and coriander. The noodles came out pretty well – a little on the softer side. The broth was a kind of spicy chicken with a note of lemon to it. I’m thinking the chilli powder kind of deadened the lemon taste a little bit. The oiliness was nice. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8934663101038.
Here’s one I got up in Canada in July of last year. Looks like a very basic chicken noodle cup. This one’s from Vietnam, and they usually put some interesting things inside. Let’s have a look!
Here are details from the two stickers that were on the side of this one (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. Not often is there one sticker, but two is pretty rare on a cup.
Here’s the complete side panels (click image to enlarge). Note that the nutrition facts on this label and the ones on the sticker are very different. To prepare, add 350ml boiling water and all sachet contents. Steep 3 minutes. Enjoy!

An included fork!
The noodle block.
Powder soup base sachet.
Looks like corn, carrot and cabbage.
Seasoned oil sachet.
Has an onion scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added grilled chicken, corn, carrots and cabbage. The noodles were very much under par; they were crumbly and just didn’t work for me. Further through eating it, they ended up getting a little softer, but they never seemed done enough. The broth was on the lighter side and had an ‘off’ kind of thing going on. The veggies hydrated in a mediocre fashion. 1.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8934561000716.
