#609: Wei-Wei “A” Series Instant Noodles Artificial Hot Beef Flavor

Here’s another that was sent to me by Michelle L. of New York. This is something I’ve never had before – Wei-Wei brand. Wai Wai yes, Wei-Wei, no. The packaging is interesting – note the guy with the suave hat in the upper right. He’s there; on the scene – purchasing noodles . Let’s see if these noodles rock.  Note the economical 49 cent price tag!

Two packets – a coagulated oil and flavoring liquid on the left and powdered seasoning on the right.

A very tightly woven block of noodles. Also very angular and flat.

Ready for 400mL of water.

The noodles fluffed up an amazingly huge amount – like one of those capsules you put in the tub and turn into a dinosaur. Good noodles actually – fluffy and buttery. The broth is spicy but not to the point of pain. The veggies although sporadic are nice. Quite a good buy at 49 cents – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars – looks like “A” series is decent stuff!

#191: Wu-Mu Steamed Noodle Chinese Herbs Flavor

I’ve had the garlic and sesame flavor noodles by Sing Lin before – they were really great so we’ll have to see how these stack up…

Some liquid, some veggies…

Pretty interesting looking stuff here. Th ingredients as far as the Chinese herbs go are as follows: plum, angelica sinensis, ligusticum wallichii, paeonia lactiflora pail, rehmanninae.

It’s rather interesting, what with the ingredients and all. I like the noodles. The broth is weak, but has some interesting flavor, and the veggies are plentiful. The veggies are some of the weirdest I’ve had – dehydrated cabbage, then vegetarian meat and then Wolfberry!!! Wow, some strange stuff here!  The vegetarian meat actually worked quite nicely and was chewy! I’m giving this one a 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.
