#487: Kailo Brand Big Bowl Noodle Instant Noodle Artificial Chicken Flavour

Here’s a new brand – Kailo! This is a big bowl of noodles too – and what an odd image on the front. But hey, how can chicken be fouled (it’s already been fowled HAHAHAHAHA – bad I know but I’m full of noodles now) it’s such a basic flavor.  So here we go! UPDATE – This stuff is actually ABALONE CHICKEN – that explains a lot.

Clockwise from top left: seasoned oil, powder soup base, veggies.

What surprises me here is how much water this thing wants… I guess we shall see what happens…

Click image to enlarge. Added two eggs (fried). Wow – this one ended up with a lot of noodles – a LOT of noodles! The noodles aren’t bad; a little mushy I spose but not bad. The veggies are interesting; not bad but taste a little odd. The broth is strange; I don’t know how to explain; maybe chickens taste different in Hong Kong but it’s kinda weird. But not bad. It’s different. Yes, different. So for a rating… Hmmm… I think a 2.75 out of 5.0 is about right here. It’s got its pluses and minuses. Get it here.

Couldn’t find a commercial but this looked cool.

    The flavor on the package clearly says Chicken, but strange enough there are LARGE ASS words saying Abalone in Chinese right on the front…with an abalone on the side..Maybe that’s why the broth tastes a little strange? For all the years I’ve lived in Hong Kong I’ve never had this brand, NIssin is the key to good instant noodle…and Shin ramyun.

      Wow I bet you’re right! Yeah that’s really strange that they wouldn’t make it say abalone chicken… Shady!
      Unfortunately we don’t have the greatest selection of Nissin around here… Very sad; I’d love to try the seafood cheese or cheese…
