NongShim Bowl Noodle Soup - Hot & Spicy Flavor

Yesterday's lunch was privded by Jakki's latest trip to the Asian market. The package was convenient and mostly recyclable, except the metalized paper "lid". Preparation was as easy as expected, and as an added bonus, you can do them in the microwave without boiling water. This makes them a good choice for trailer camping.

The flavor was a little "meh" but it was plenty spicy, inducing the requisite pepper-sprayed protester coughing fit. The veggie content was expectedly light; there seemed to be more carrot pieces than anything else.

The "shrimp" was an interesting addition: It appeared to be a large, thick sheet of surimi with a top-coat of a pinkish-orange dye, rolled up jellyroll-style and then sliced thinly across. This produced smallish rubbery spirals with a colored "vein" that added a note of the sea.

The noodles themselves had a good flavor and an excellent consistency. Overall, I would rate 3.5/5 - something to stick in the trailer as a foodstuff of indecision.

P.S. - I would like to meet these "Professional Chefs" that endorsed this product.
