Chinese Chicken Soup Bowl
Good attempt for udon but there’s definitely room for improvement!
i like it! a lot!
One thing lacking in this soup is the veggies. There’s not a whole heck of a lot but that is to be expected i guess. I always find that I wish for more veggies in these instant noodle soups no matter the brand. So I recently bought bags of freeze-dried “just peas” and “just corn” to throw into my instant soups and they are proving to be a great investment. It’s great because you can control the amount you add, i can really “beef-up” my soups with lots of corn n peas if i choose to. I plan on getting carrots next….anyway, I added a little extra corn in this soup before preparing & it was great 🙂
Get any other bowl but this!
Perfect For Lunch
I love this soup!
The Best Instant Noodle Meals You Can Buy!
Note: The seasoning comes in a sealed pouch so if you tend to prefer yours less salty or less strong in taste, don’t use it all to start. You can always add more in later.
Note: Since the bowl is made partially from cornstarch, it will biodegrade completely so toss it in the trash when you’re done without feeling guilty. (For this reason you should NOT attempt to reuse this bowl like you may have done with other brand instant noodle meals that came in plastic bowls.)
Note: Of them all I believe this to be my least favorite flavor. Why? Because it is the blandest. I think this was intended to be the one that entices ordinary Americans unfamiliar with Asian foods into sampling their products, but in the process they overdid it, producing a rather boring extremely mild tasting chicken soup with of course their excellent thick, soft, Hokkien noodles. I’d agree with other reviewers that this is the one you are most likely to want to add things to in order to spice it up.
Reliable lunch to keep at work
Also good for earthquake and emergency kits, though they need some water to rehydrate.
Pleasant ginger taste, soft non fried noodle, but a bit bland. An ‘on sale’ purchase only
I didnt think this was bad but I wasnt that impressed. This would probably be improved with a little soy sauce or spice. I know they are trying to limit the salt but i’ve had other soups with 1000mg of sodium (the amount in this soup – they claim 2 servings but thats a joke and deceives many people) or less, and it tasted better. Also, when cooking, do not use more water then specified. 1 cup is enough; any more will substantially dilute the taste. I would recommend trying this once but after that, unless its $1.50 or less, I dont think its a repeat for me.
I saw this at my local publix for – get this – a whopping $4.79. Its certainly NOT worth that price. With annie chun you are partly paying for the gimmick – the cornstarch recyclable packaging, charity donations, organic ingredients, no msg (although does contain yeast extract which has free glutimates I believe..), etc.
My recommendation is to only pick this up if you see it on sale, and then add in something extra – maybe even more ginger. If you are able, some diced chicken would really improve this soup. If you are on the go, you could also add canned chicken breast since its shelf stable. I think the overall consensus is that if you were to try any one of these annie chun soups, try the udon.
