This will be my first of probably many reviews on Instant Noodles. Instant noodles has always been a favorite for many people, especially those in college. When I was in college, I use to eat instant noodles almost everyday. It’s cheap, fast and easy to make.
This brand (Sau Tao) makes all types of instant noodles and it’s different in that they use different kind of noodles and their sauce packets come in many different flavors. Their flavors range from wonton, abalone, mushroom, beef, scallop, chicken and many more. They also have different noodles like egg noodles, rice noodles and oat noodles. All of them pretty yummy in their own way.
This particular review I am doing is on the ho fun (rice noodle) wonton flavor. This is one of my favorite instant noodles of all time. I tried it a few years back when my mom bought me some to eat from Chinatown. It contains 3 packets of seasoning and ingredients: the wonton flavor powder, a packet of veggies and meat and another packet that has the good stuff in it like fat and what makes this soup stand out from the rest.
Another thing I like about this brand is their noodles. This is the first time I have had rice noodles for instant noodles. Usually, instant noodles are made out of processed wheat flour. Sau Tau’s are made out of rice noodles and on the package, they claim their noodles are not fried.
After adding all three packets in the bowl, I poured boiling water in it and let it sit for about 4 minutes. After 4 minutes, the noodles had perfect consistency. The soup was very tasty. Nothing like what I have tried before. You can actually see a little bit of oil on top like soups you eat at restaurants. The flavor is very rich and you can taste the prawn flavor in the soup.
As some of you might know, I love rice noodles so I might be biased in that part. However, how often do you see instant noodles that have rice noodles in it?
I would rate this a 9/10 for instant noodles. If you enjoy instant noodles, I would suggest trying this one. You can buy them in Chinatown if you live in San Francisco or you can order them online.
