Hey cool I didn’t realize I still had one of these left! I liked this line of Vifon stuff!
Here’s the back of the package! Click image to enlarge.
Dry powder soup base on left, seasoned oil on right.
So you put boiling water in with it and let it steep.

Here’s a commercial for this stuff.
Not sure what its about but I think its Vietnamese.
It certainly looks like shrimp and very enjoyable in the picture. I wonder how it will taste though. That’s kind of the question I ask myself 50% of the time. The other 50% is kind of a oh look it’s chicken this should be chicken like. This on the other hand is Vietnamese, and sour and spicy and shrimp. So we shall see…
Powder packet and seasoned oil packet. Kind of a dilemma here; was going to possibly go a little easy on the heat this morning as I don’t really want to deal with heartburn later, but the heat’s not in it’s own packet so I guess I’ll just have to go full steam ahead on this one!
Looks interesting… No idea how it will taste though…

I usually use some spray olive oil – that seems like a lot of oil they’re using. By the way for those stateside, groundnut oil is peanut oil.
So here’s another of the Vifon Tứ Quý packs I got on my birthday. Chicken eh? Sounds basic… Hmmm.
Two packets – the soup base on the left and the seasoned oil on the right.
The oil has a very strong aroma but not of sesame as one would imagine.

The broth was okay… It’s just that everything kind of had this almost sweet basil flavor, but it seemed rather fake. I don’t know what it was to be honest but it kind of overwhelmed everything and I believe it was in the oil packet. From looking zat the ingredients there are some interesting things going on such as star anise and chinese yam. Anyways, it seemed to distract from it being a chicken instant noodle. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.
