This is another one from the series I did for Apple Daily news of Hong Kong. I haven’t had any of this Doill series in ages and I remember I liked them very much. Vegetarian though; usually a tough sell for me. Let’s give it a try!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. to prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A granular mixture.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, spring onion, chilli flake and baby corn. The noodles are superb here – good backbone and gauge. My favorite Doll noodles are from this line. The broth has a mushroom taste – not at all weak, and almost tastes beefy. A very nice vegetarian variant. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4892333100658.
So I’ve been quite a fan of Doll’s varieties – they’ve always proven to be quite nice. So here’s their beef variety.
One packet of dry seasoning.
Very deep color to this one – looks like cooked beef.
Click image to enlarge. Tossed in a couple eggs. Wasn’t really expecting what I found with this one. The rpos – a nice amount of noodles which were nice and firm and tasty. The cons? Even with 500mL of water and two eggs, the broth was salty – overly salty. I’m not one who usually finds broth to be salty- but this one sure is. Giving this one 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. Find it here.
