First packet of noodles from the USA. Yay!
I like big pack of noodles (who doesn’t) and this is indeed a big pack of noodles, weighing around 125g!
Cooking directions –
- Stove Top
- Boil 550ml (about 2 1/3 cups) of water. Add noodles, soup base and vegetable mix.
- Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and serve.
- Microwave (cooking time may vary depending on microwaves)
- Put soup base and vegetable mix into a microwavable bowl, then add noodles on top.
- Pour 500ml (about 2 cups) of room temperature water.
- Cook for 7 minutes. When using hot water, cook for 4 minutes.
A big round, non-destroyed, noodle block and the noodles are thick but not too thick. This should be fun!
The soup base has a faint seafood aroma which works very well for me because I cannot stand the strong fishy smell.
The “vegetable mix” is an interesting combination of – dried fish cakes, seaweed, green onions and carrots.
This bowl is just what I wanted and expected. Pleasant seafood aroma, good quantity of chewy noodles, a flavorful yet slightly spicy broth and well hydrated veggies!
I have to mention; the quality of the noodles is fantastic. Just the right amount of chew and crumble. I couldn’t stop eating them!
Added few Bok Choy leaves (Chinese Cabbage) to the pan along with the noodles while they were cooking. 3-5 minutes is enough time to cook bok choy. I like to keep them slightly crunchy, and this added the much-needed crunch to the noods.
Initially I thought of adding cheese to this, but then chose the healthier option. Now I have one last packet left, looks like it is going to be a cheesy-spicy-seafood-flavor-noodle-soup the next time! #alreadyexcited
Pro tip: once off the stove, the noodles are quick in soaking up the broth, so get a bib and slurp on them quickly!
