#3174: TIEasy Sesame Sauce Handmade Noodle – Taiwan

#3174: TIEasy Sesame Sauce Handmade Noodle - Taiwan

I got an email asking if I’d like to try a new noodle and of course I said yes. Turns out the fellow who wants to distribute it is up in Vancouver, BC. So I emailed him while we were up there and we met up at Foodyworld in Richmond. He gave me this and another variety as well as a pack with different kinds of noodles that contain vegetable – like a purple yam noodle, pumpkin noodle, etc. This was really cool – we chatted for a few and two days later, I’m giving these noodles a try. Let’s check them out! By the way TIEasy is short for Take It Easy.

Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one –

‘This may be the first soy milk noodles in a ZenPop ramen pack. Plus this one’s name is fun to say. Sesame and soy milk make the soup a bit more mild than normal tan tan noodles. Moreover, a little bit of ginger gives a nice accent to the soup. Enjoy your (probably) first mild spicy wantan noodles!’

Will do! Let’s give it a go!

When I think of rice wine, my mind immediately goes to sake from Japan. I was surprised to find that there are many different kinds of rice wine – here’s a pretty extensive list from Wikipedia –

  • Apong – An Indian rice wine indigenous to the Mising tribe, from the Northeastern states of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
  • Ara – Bhutanese rice, millet, or maize wine
  • Brem – Balinese rice wine

  • Huangjiu – A Chinese fermented rice wine, literally “yellow wine” or “yellow liquor”, with colors varying from clear to brown or brownish red.
  • Lao-Lao – A clear rice wine from Laos
  • Lihing – Kadazan-Dusun rice wine from Sabah, Malaysian Borneo
  • Makgeolli – a milky rice wine from Korea
  • Mijiu – a clear, sweet Chinese rice wine/liqueur made from fermented glutinous rice.
  • Mirin – a Japanese rice wine used in cooking.
  • Rượu cần – Vietnamese rice wine drunk through long, thin bamboo tubes
  • Sake – A rice wine from Japan. The most widely known type of rice wine in North America because of its ubiquitous appearance in Japanese restaurants.
  • Sato – A rice wine originating in the Isan region of Thailand
  • Shaoxing – A rice wine from Shaoxing, Zhejiang province, China, probably the best known Chinese rice wine
  • Sombai – Cambodian infused rice wine with sugar cane, fruits and spices still inside the bottle
  • Sonti – Indian rice wine

  • Tapuy – Clear rice wine from the Mountain Province in the Philippines
  • Tuak – Dayak rice wine (Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo); Sarawak (Malaysian Borneo)

Today we’ve got a green package. I’ve kind of tried to review them in the order of the spectrum (red, orange, yellow, green, indigo, violet) and while there’s no blue I think it’s going pretty well in that respect. Hey! Here’s a little info from Wikipedia about pesto –

Pesto (Italian: [ˈpesto]Ligurian: [ˈpestu]) or, in extenso, pesto alla genovese (Italian pronunciation: [ˈpesto alla dʒenoˈveːze; -eːse]), is a sauce originating in Genoa, the capital city of LiguriaItaly.[1] It traditionally consists of crushed garlic, European pine nuts, coarse salt, basil leavesParmigiano-Reggiano (Parmesan cheese) and pecorino sardo (cheese made from sheep’s milk), all blended with olive oil.[2]

For me, the scent of basil is what comes to mind when I think of pesto. Let’s see what this one has to offer!

Today, we bid adieu to Red Chef with this, the last review. I’ve had quite a few clear soup varieties in my day – and they’ve always kind of confused me, to be honest.
