Wow! I have a feeling this tastes somewhat like… chicken! Chicken na Chicken Chicken flavor! Here we go!
Powder seasoning is on the left whilst the ‘garnish’ is on the right. The garnish appears to be some kind of amalgam of textured protein.
I think there’s some onion in with the mixture on the right as well.

The noodles were a little more bulky than the usual fare you’d find in something like Top Ramen, but kind of the same quality. All in all, it tasted like a very salty chicken noodle soup affair. Not bad, but not amazing. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars.
So here’s the third Sotanghon flavored instant noodles I’ve tried – the others weren’t really my thing. Hopefully I like this one a bit!
So here we have a silver packet of dry powder seasoning, a ridiculous little fork – its just far too small to be of any use I think… Then some seasoning sauce (looks like an oil) and maybe fried onions.
Looks like very little onion for all the liquid that’s going to be around it – but let’s giver a try!
The finished product (click image to enlarge). So this is some weird stuff. I definitely like it better than the first two I’ve had but not much. The broth was kind of thick and weird; not what one would normally expect from instant noodle broth; it’s more meaty if that makes any sense. Kind of like the broth you would get from boiling a turkey carcass for hours. The thin rice vermicelli does work here and I liked them. The ‘veggies’ if you want to call them that danced around and kind of looked at my fork like some kind of alien scalpel of mistrust. In the end, not bad but not my fave by any means. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. Find it here.
Again today I asked my lady Kit to pick a couple packs of noodles to eat. The first is this one.
A very small amount of noodles – in fact, only a cup of water is required to prepare them!
Some odd seasonings… Hmm…
Holy crap this stuff is gross (click image to enlarge)! First off, 60mg shy of 2000mg of sodium is just insane for such a small amount of noodles. The taste is way too strong for me and kind of piquantly pungent and very not my style. I don’t like it. I don’t like it. I don’t like it. I give it .25 out of 5.0 stars. Here’s the cup version.
So here’s some unique noodles in a cup from the Philippines! Sotanghon chicken – what’s sotanghon? According to Wikipedia…
In Filipino cuisine, the noodles are called sotanghon because of the popular dish of the same name made from them using chicken and wood ears. These noodles are often confused with rice vermicelli, which are called bihon in the Philippines.
So whaddaya know…
So here are the noodles sitting in the cup awaiting liquids and seasoning. They’re already sitting with some green onion or chives it appears.
Powder seasoning and flavored oil.
Here’s the finished product (click image to enlarge). The noodles are clear and not to my liking. Kinda mucky I think. The broth is extremely salty. I don’t especially like it… I’m going to give it 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.
