#297: Rhee Bros Assi Brand Wellbeing Hot & Spicy Rice Noodle With Kimchi Flavored Soup

So here’s another Rhee Bros. Assi Brand Wellbeing noodle pack comin’ atcha.

I really like how these noodles look – very neat and tidy, as is the flavor packet.

Awaiting boiling water and a record on top.

Added two fried eggs as this was breakfast and also threw a pinch of Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning atop the eggs for a little flavor but mostly aesthetics.

Noodles are good – there’s a decent kick of spiciness going on that is absorbed by them. The broth is quite spicy hot, and the small amount of vegetables aren’t too bad. I really would’ve liked more veggies though. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.

#280: Rhee Bros Assi Brand Wellbeing Rice Noodle with Katsuo Flavored Soup

Well well well… More of the Assi Brand boxes. Wellbeing. We shall see!

Wow! Uber packet! My curiosity is piqued!

Welcome to trippy looking rice noodle land! What are all those things in the powder? What is Katsuo flavor??? Is that it? Well, Wikipedia says Katsuo flavor is… Skipjack tuna flavor! Katsuo is Japanese! Okay so this is getting more and more interesting… So what we have here are some seafood flavor noodles with funky bits going on…

Welcome to the social (click image to enlarge). So what we have here aree some interesting rice noodles with a lot of friends invited. First, let’s start with the noodles. Angel hair thin and seperate, these noodles are some of the best I’ve had in a box or bowl noodle hands down. The broth was seafood taste (rather nice of the sea) and groovy on the flavor receptor. The interesting friend of noodle here were quite excellent – looks like bits of naruto, some seaweed and some funny little things that remind me of jellyfish or some Korean rice cakes that I saw used in a cooking video. Regardless, this has been a fascinating, new and fun tromp through the garden of weird. I’m giving this one 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. Magnificent.

#118: Paldo Bibim Men Oriental Style Noodle

So sometimes I’m looking for some new ramen and see it but it only seems to come in a 5 pack. Nowhere else in the noodle aisle do they have it… That’s really annoying! This was one such variety but I finally found it at a new Asian market I found today out of nowhere across from 99 Ranch Market in Edmonds. Anyways, here’s Paldo brand Bibim Men Oriental Style Noodle

So only one packet. The directions are to cook the noodles and then drain them, wash them under cold water and then put the goopy contents of this packet with them and stir.

See the goopy contents? On the package it mentions now with 8% more apple juice and also has a pic of a hot pepper.

Finished stuff (click image to enlarge). Well, I’m certainly glad I didn’t get 5 of them. It’s interesting a very different; it’s cold noodles with a slightly apple tasting and spicy flavor. Still, not really my thing. I might like them better hot but still not sure. The end result is 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. It’s really neat and cool to see something so different than what I usually get, but really not that great or terrible.
