#1226: Master Kong Artificial Braised Beef Flavor Instant Noodle

Here’s one that’s been kind of confusing in the past, and it still is. A guy who said he worked for Master Kong said these aren’t actually Master Kong. When I check the UPC code, it comes up with Kailo Brand Abalone Chicken flavor in a similar sized big cup. Whatever it is, let’s check it out!

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Says it’s meat-free. Says to add 700ml boiling water and all the packets and cover for 4 minutes.

Here’s the lid detail (click image to enlarge).

An included fork!

The noodle block.

Powder soup base sachet.

Has a sweet beefy scent.

Liquid soup base sachet.

Has a nice meaty beef scent.

The solid ingredients sachet.

A smattering of veggies.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added thin sliced beef and sweet onion that I sauteed. The noodles are thin and slightly weak of character, but not too bad. The broth is sweet and beefy and salty. It’s quite nice, actually! The veggies were meh. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s a track from the album mentioned above. Good stuff.
