#288: Saigon Ve Wong Kung-Fu Artificial Beef Flavor Instant Rice Noodles

Some rice noodles from Vietnam. This was a puffy pack – like a pillow of non-beef goodness!

Clockwise from top left: soup powder, garnish (veg), chili powder and seasoned oil.

The rice noodles were in a plastic bad.

The seasonings sit atop the noodle block awaiting 400cc of boiling water.

I threw it in with the water as it boiled and then poured it and the water over the noodles and seasonings and covered. A quick stir after a few minutes and here we are.  The broth was nice – thick and hearty. The noodles were broad but a little oily from the soup and a little hard to eat. Adding the beef really helped it I think. Anyways, I liked it and throwing it 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.

Best noodle commercial ever.

#138: Unif-100 Furong Shrimp Flavor Instant Noodles

Some shrimp ramen – looked interesting and furong sounded weird so why not.

Veggies and oil and powder – a lot of powder!

Lookit all that powder!

I wonder if this may have been any better if the oil sachet was absent. I’ve noticed the oil seems a little funky to my taste buds with these Unif 100’s so maybe I’ll try it sans oil next time.

Well, I’m giving it a 3.0 out of 5.0 – overall a good bowl of noodles. Noodles were hearty, veggies crisped once in a while and broth was decent.
