Very strong chemical taste - not pleasant at all.
great noodle pots if you pick the right flavours!
The Beef Pho and the Green Curry are the best flavours of the naked noodle pots by far in my opinion. Other flavours are OK (and a couple not so much - looking at you Singapore Curry) but these two stand out for me. They're great for taking to work when you're in a rush as they're reasonably healthy. I always stock up when they're 75p. As someone else has said though, there is a knack for getting them at their best - they need quite a bit longer to stew than suggested and you need to make sure you're getting your fork right into the bottom corners to get all the flavour powder mixed in well as it does get stuck otherwise and you end up with it a bit watery. About 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, does the trick to get the sauce thick and delicious and the noodles soft and they're just the right temperature to eat then as well.
Horrible ate 1 spoonful
threw it away
Nothing Vietnamese inside
Was eating or rather trying to eat it a minute ago. Really poor product with indeterminate flavour that no Vietnamese person would recognise. Tried a range of these noodles and actually the all taste equally same...I mean bad.
Nothing like a beef pho
From a genuine Vietnamese: tastes nothing close to a beef pho. A weird mix of spices and still lacking flavour. Edible though
Take your time prepping this one - great flavour.
Absolutely love these. There is a knack to getting them right though. Turn the pot upside down and shake it / tap the bottom so the flavour comes loose from the bottom. Gently put it the right way up and add water. Give a good stir making sure you get any little bits in the corners. Stir every couple of minutes for around 10 minutes. I find any less than 10 minutes and the noodles are a bit tough. Quite spicy too - I love the soupy bit at the bottom - you get a good hit of spice. Not too impressed with the other flavours but this one is a keeper.
Failed "natural" food"
I would of thought with a name like Naked Noodle it would suggest natural, no real beef flavour. I would think a Pot noodle would be better, for once we should have a natural dish .
