#509: Ve Wong Kung-Fu Shrimp Flavor Instant Oriental Noodle Soup

Shramp! Nothin’ like shramp! Ami I wrong? AM I??? Well, I like shrimp and so today I will ingest a bowl of Ve Wong Shrimp flavor instant noodle soup from Taiwan. ‘Nuff said.

Seasoning on the left – as well as veggies and nice little shrimps! The seasoned oil was quite pungent – sesame and maybe fish sauce.

You can kind of make out the oil on the right upper middle – it’s the shiny stuff.

Just enough noodles, a broth that wasn’t too salty and definitely not fishy. The veggies were of a good quantity and quality, and the little shrimp re-hydrated nicely and tasted great. Well, all of these things put together give it a 4.0 out of 5.0 stars – wasn’t expecting it would get such high marks but hey, a surprise like this is always nice! Look for it here.

#380: Assi Brand Pho Vietnamese Noodle Soup

So here’s some interesting stuff. It doesn’t say its any particular flavor other than ‘pho.’ Not beef or veggies or chicken. I’m going to guess beef. The picture looks kinda beefy.

Serious labeling here – paste soup, powder soup. Kind of makes my comments here pointless. On the obverse of the powder soup is the list of ingredients.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen that, nor have I see the measurements as on these.

The noodles are cool looking – very uniform. The paste was asking for a little taste – very spicy!

They don’t seem like they’re fried. The broth and veggies are really really good – some spicy bit in there that have my tongue burning!!! Good quality going on here. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.
