#866: Master Kong/康师傅 Mianba Instant Noodle Soup

This is the last of the packs that were so kindly sent by Bo H. who works at a University in China. Thanks again! All of these were just amazing – and now… Hmm – not sure what this is! One thing says pork ribs flavor, something else says steak. I guess we’ll see how it comes out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge).

The noodle block.

Powder seasoning.

Light, fine powder – a lot of it.

Paste seasoning.

Smells really good!

Veggies.

Nice looking mixture.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some frozen stir-fry vegetables (yeah need to get to the produce stand soon) and a couple shakes of Krazy Mixed Up Salt. the noodles are good – seem to be a slightly wider gauge than usual and have a nice texture and chew. The broth has a nice spiciness to is and a good meaty flavor. Expected it to be slightly thick and greasy but it wasn’t. A nice pepperiness to is. The vegetables were good too – nice re-gydration. I liked it! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 6903252710564 .
