Snapdragon Japanese Sesame Rice Noodle Soup Bowl
Tools Required: Hot Water, Spoon & Chopsticks
Snack Size (220 calories per package)
Price: $1.79 (at World Market in Woodinville)
I mentioned to my sweetie this morning that I hadn't had any noodles since Wednesday, so she suggested I try one of my new bowls she bought for me while we are waiting for the football game to start. (Go Seahawks!)
Upon removing the lid, I was greeted with a strong and appetizing aroma of sesame--it certainly smells good! The noodles stayed very nicely al-dente, and plumped up a bit thicker than I had expected. The veggie bits re-hydrated into recognizable pieces of carrot and sweet pepper, as well as a few green onion flecks. The broth is very hearty and satisfying, but possibly just a little salty. Overall, I really like this one! Unfortunately, the small portion size and 'gourmet' price means that it will be more of an occasional treat rather than a frequent meal, but for today, I will give it a "happy happy Jessie" smiley rating.
