So I learnt my lesson from the last one, and opted for a non-spicy flavour. I honestly just picked it up because it was cheap and didn’t look like it was trying to replicate the breath of a dragon. Oh, and also because I like tanmen (or, at least I liked it the one time I tried it nearly two years ago).
I literally know nothing else because this time, they haven’t cared to even put any English instructions other than a couple of diagrams, so who knows? Maybe I prepared it comepletely wrong.
Upon opening the pot, the seasoning hit me with a kind of nutty smell, like there was a bit of peanut butter in it, or something (again, no idea, since I can’t read the ingredients). The sweetcorn was…suspect but I gave it the benefit of the doubt as I poured hot water into the pot and covered it for about 3 minutes.
So, how’d it taste?
Honestly…I don’t really know how to explain. It was kind of salty and kind of trying to be a little bit spicy, but doesn’t even compare to plain at Nando’s. It did have a flavour though, just not a very strong one.
Despite that, it was pretty good. I’d say that the people at Yamadai did a pretty good job. The extremely mild taste is actually quite refreshing, especially in the heatwave we’ve been experiencing recently in England.
Would I buy it again? Probably yeah, if I can find it. I actually haven’t seen it in the shops near me since I bought it, actually quite a while ago, now.
In a nutshell: Not much flavour, but still refreshing.
I don’t know if this will be the last post for another month, but I do actually have quite a few things I want to talk about on here at the moment. I guess it will depend on how much work I have to do…
