#3762: Kim & Kim Easy Pho Rice Noodle Soup – Vietnam

#3762: Kim & Kim Easy Pho Rice Noodle Soup - Vietnam

Saw this one at Boo Han Market in Edmonds, WA and was like – what? If you notice, there’s a South Korean AND a North Korean flag thing going on here. UPDATE: Ah – I’m wrong it’s a Vietnamese flag and a South Korean flag… At least that is what I’m getting out of it – I could be wrong. This looks to be an export product – very interesting imagery. Well, let’s give it a try! ...see full post

#3746: Vifon Asian Style Instant Noodles With Crab Paste – Vietnam

#3746: Vifon Asian Style Instant Noodles With Crab Paste - Vietnam

Here’s one that was sent in by reader James from Lakeside, CA! Thanks! He’s sent quite a few neat varieties over the past year and this follows suit. It contains a retort pouch, kind of the high bar when it comes to instants as it’s like a flexible can with fish or meat in there which makes everything better. This one’s got crab – let give it a try! ...see full post

#3725: Vifon Instant Seafood Porridge – Vietnam

#3725: Vifon Instant Seafood Porridge - Vietnam

Every once in a while, I dig through all the noodles and other things I have and this popped up. Actually, the other day I found a slew of expired stuff from 2018 and 2019 – like expired I mean well over a year! Tossed about 25 pounds of stuff, sadly. Luckily I’ve still got a bunch of stuff to review. This one seemed like an interesting one to do since although it’s not an instant noodle, it’s something you’ll eventually run into on the instant noodle aisle. So sit back, relax, don’t have a cow because it’s neither ramen nor a noodle, and check out rice porridge from Vietnam. ...see full post

Those crab claws there look really nice. Man, that sounds so good right now! I remember when in Penang, Malaysia, sitting around a table which was on a little dock – one of many that were roped together and you picked the seafood you wanted and they prepared it. It was amazing – and we got crab. The meat was so good! We also had duck and sea cucumber – that’s an interesting thing. They work well together, but sea cucumber by itself wasn’t my favorite thing. Anyways, I digress – black pepper crab it is! ...see full post

Meet The Manufacturer: #3607: Vi Huong Instant Noodles Artificial Pork Flavor - Vietnam

As I ready this, the first post of the week, I’m a little worried. You see, I don’t have any ground pork. I hope they have some at the store tomorrow morning. I’m kind of unsure what kind of garnish to do on this one other than that. Hmmm… I don’t think eggs really are suitable… I’ll have to figure this one out! Let’s begin. ...see full post

Meet The Manufacturer: #3606: Thien Huong Food Lemon Chicken Flavour Instant Noodles - Vietnam

Lemon chicken sounds good! This isn’t one I’ve seen a lot of. Lemon usually isn’t a pairing with instant noodle flavor profiles. Uniqueness! Hooray! Sure, there’s lemongrass, but this is different. Unique varieties pique my interest – let’s delve into this one. ...see full post

Meet The Manufacturer: #3604: Vi Huong Spicy Shrimp Flavour Instant Noodles - Vietnam

I really like this packaging – paper with a protective inner liner. It’s definitely unique and I must say I wish more companies would do things this way. It’s so much easier for me to take pictures of the packaging – much less glare! Let’s give the contents a try! ...see full post

Meet The Manufacturer: #3604: Vi Huong Pho Bo Artificial Beef Flavor Rice Noodles – Vietnam

Meet The Manufacturer: #3604: Vi Huong Pho Bo Artificial Beef Flavor Rice Noodles - Vietnam

I thought it fitting to start things off with probably the variety most familiar to people – pho, and in particular, pho bo. There are a ton of pho restaurants nearby me – haven’t been in a while and as I type this in after reviewing this one, I’m thinking I need to visit one. It’s been too long! Unfortunately, no restaurants open at this point – luckily, I’ve got a series of Vietnamese varieties to review! Let’s check this one out! ...see full post
