Thick imitation shark fin soup noodles
If you’re expecting the thick, flavourful kind of imitation shark fin soup you get from local street food stalls, then we’re sorry, you will be massively disappointed. Soup wise, it is definitely a lot thicker than most cup noodles and somewhat reminded us of shark fin soup, but the taste was nowhere near. In fact, we’re not quite sure how to describe it because it was unlike anything we’ve ever tasted before – and not in a good way. One thing that did surprise us was the number of dried ingredients inside. There were goji berries, wood ear mushroom, egg, and lettuce (not the usual flaky, flimsy kind either). In terms of imitation shark fin, there were some small, broken bits of rice noodle-like things of which we can only assume were supposed to be the shark fin. Overall, the idea was great, but the execution, not so much.
