Meet The Manufacturer: #1688: Wugudaochang Sea Tangle & Spareribs Flavor Noodles

Now, we again return to the tangle of the sea. This is the package version of the first variety I tried on this Meet The Manufacturer. Is there a difference? Let’s see!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Not sure whether is contains meat or not. To prepare, add everything to 600ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy

The noodle block.

Powder soup base.

A very light powder.

A paste sachet.

Thick like peanut butter.

The vegetables sachet.

Peas, sea tangle and carrot.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added pork, red bell pepper and white onion. The noodles are of a good gauge and light in chew. The broth has a creamy color and nice flavor. The sea tangle also known as kelp was all over the place and glad it was invited – went very nicely. Bits of carrot were also there and of nice quality. As with the bowl version, I was happy about the presence of little cubes of pork which were perfectly hydrated and of excellent quality. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6936986811108.

Meet The Manufacturer: #1681: Wugudaochang Sea Tangle & Spareribs Flavor Noodles

If you’re unsure of what sea tangle is, maybe you’ve heard of kelp. It’s like thick seaweed. When I was a kid, I’d go down to the shoreline and when the tide was out, you’d see these long whip like greenish things every once in a while – big bulbs on the end and long flat leafy looking things. We used to step on the bulbs at the end which were hollow and they’d pop! It was good fun – never thought part of these things would be something I’d look forward to in a noodle dish! Let’s check out this one from Wugudaochang to start off their Meet The Manufacturer!

A paste sachet.

Thick like peanut butter.

The vegetables sachet.

Peas, sea tangle and carrot.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added pork and white onion. The noodles hydrated nicely and have a decent texture. They have a standard instant gauge. The broth has a creamy color and good flavor I enjoyed. The sea tangle also known as kelp was very prevalent and a nice addition. Bits of carrot were also added and of good quality. What I didn’t expect was the presence of little cubes of pork which were perfectly hydrated and very welcome. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6936986813102.

#294: Paldo Korean Noodle Seafood Flavor

Seafood flavor… I wonder if this will be like the Seafood Party? Kind of looks like the same kind of thing.

Veggies and powder seasoning…

Decent amount of veg and the seasoning looks spicy!

Added a couple eggs during the cooking – looked nice so I snapped a pic.

Click image to enlarge. Here’s the finished product, all neat and presentable. So I like this one – I find that the noodles are of good quality this time, and not too chewy or tough like the broad or u-dong. The broth is rich and savory and full of flavor. The vegetables are abundant and tasty. I am giving it 3.75 out of 5.0 stars – really hit the spot. Find it here.
