I tried chili noodles from a box

A few months ago, I was browsing the noodle aisle at the Asian grocery store and I came across this interesting looking box. If I remember correctly, the store description called them chili noodles so I wanted to give them a try. I wasn't able to read the instructions but luckily you guys came in clutch. Inside the box there are 2 servings of noodles and a bunch of sauce packages. One of them looked like pickled veggies. When I tried it, it was salty, sour, and delicious. While the noodles were cooking, I mixed the sauce packages all together and I got really excited because it was already smelling great.

I drained the noodles and the instructions said to add some noodle water so I did that. I mixed it all up and added the dry package, that looked like it had some little peanuts in it. I mixed it up again and felt like adding protein to the noodles so I decided to add an egg. The noodles were fantastic and my mouth got a pleasant numbing effect from the Szechuan peppercorns. Once I finished the egg, the noodles did become a little too rich for me so I decided to add kimchi. I would definitely try this again. Well, I guess I kind of have to because I have another serving to cook.
