#929: Vina Acecook Good Artificial Minced Pork Flavour Bean Vermicelli

Here’s the last of the ones my sister brought me back from Hawaii! Minced pork bean vermicelli… Sounds kind of interesting! A very dark day here – wet, cold and windy.

The back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

The bean vermicelli block.

The powder seasoning packet.

Interesting flavor… Salty and… Not sure!

Seasoned oil.

Has a nice onion and meat kind of scent – should liven things up…

The veggies! I must say that Vina Acecook usually does pretty good with their veggies.

Here’s the veggie mixture – a decent amount and looks nice.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some ham that I minced with a little Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce, some onions and some stir fry veggies. The noodles are decent – plentiful and not too hard to break by pursing the lips. Again as always, I recommend using a pair of kitchen scissors on these while still in the pot – just do a few snips and it’ll make a big difference. The broth is good – has a nice comfort food flavor and the veggies are plentiful and interesting. Good pack of bean vermicelli! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8934563308117

I really like this – a pretty cool overview of Vina Acecook’s company.

I saw an advert in a magazine yesterday for some enormous fans – some 24 feet across! Thought they were pretty awesome – and then the name – Big Ass Fans! How rad! Anyways, here’s a little video story about Big Ass Fans and what they do. Check out the Big Ass Fans website here!

#798: Golden Wheat Korean Style Pork Flavour Noodle Soup

Plenty of it.

Liquid base.

Looks like an oyster – kinda…

The veggies!

Looks like a nice little smorgasbord…

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added onions and a couple dashes of Texas Pete Hot Sauce. The broth was rather greasy and a little lighter of a flavor than I’d expected. The noodles were just plain boring; they didn’t really soak up any flavor. The veggies were okay. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 6921555586235 .

Korean pork belly – there’s really nothing like it!
