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.
Here’s something new I found at H Mart. Casserole huh? Beef sounds good. By the way – underneath the sticker on the front it says ‘Beef Flavour.’ Let’s check it out.
Here’s the sticker the distributor puts on.
I really had a time scanning the back of the package. Inverting the colors had the best effect (click to enlarge).
Very thin, crunchy and tasty noodles at this point!
Powder on the left, oil on the right.
An interesting beef and slight sugary taste.
The oil has a strong onion scent.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added some stir fry veggies, onion, thin sliced rib eye, kizami shoga (pickled ginger), Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake and some green onions. The noodles are neat – thin, sort of crumbly and have a nice flavor. The broth is very light; almost bland. Has a good beef taste to it though. all in all, pretty good – 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8850100002488.

Vifon: Nam Vang
Stars: ** 1/2 Notes: This stuff wasn’t bad – basically a typical salty rice noodle snack ramen from Vietnam. It would notdo well with an egg though, as the noodles weren’t the most strong and a lot of them turned to analmost gelatinous state – not from overcooking I assure you. Other than the weak fortitude of thenoodles, the broth was fine as were the dried vegetables.
