A friend send me a picture showing this new variety from Tseng Noodle I’d not heard of before: Spicy Dolar. I thought hmmm… I’d better see if I can get a sample! Well, the box arrived, I’m ready to open it, and so let’s have a look!
The first of two varieties for this Fantastic Noodles Meet The Manufacturer series. From what I gather, Spicy Dolar sounds like a Sichuan pepper infused variety with some extras going on. Let’s find out!
Fantastic Noodles Spicy Dolar – Taiwan
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles in 1000ml water for 3~3 1/2 minutes. Drain. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!

A dry sachet.
A powder of spices.
A liquid base sachet.
An oily combination.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, scallion, fried onion, Chinese sausage, and chili flake. Noodles have a nice gauge and chewiness to them. Great quantity as well. I cooked 3.5 minutes and that were still chewy. The flavor is interesting – has a spiciness and some other flavors going on I found interesting – worked well. I didn’t find it too Sichuan peppery though. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. No bar code.
