Meet The Manufacturer: #1353: Mamee Instant Noodles Vegetarian Flavour

Today we have a bright green package – vegetarian flavor. It seems most product lines have at least one variety that’s vegetarian. The approximations of what a general ‘vegetable’ tastes like however has differed from brand to brand, from the vile to the exalted tasty treat. This one’s made with the ‘Mi Tarik’ technology at Mamee’s factory. This is where they emulate the technique of hand-pulling noodles with their equipment. Hand pulling noodles is interesting; the chef starts with a long thick roll, doubles it up, flours it, then swings it around a bit. This is repeated, doubling the amount of strands every time until there are a couple hundred noodles. I’ll put a video at the end showing someone doing this. Anyways, let’s give these vegetarian noodles a try!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be vegetarian. To prepare, cook the noodles in 400ml boiling water for 2 minutes. Stir in contents of both sachets and enjoy!

The noodle block.

Soup base sachet.

A light powder.

A liquid ingredient sachet.

Corn oil.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added Chinese long beans, corn, carrots, peas, sweet onion, chives, fried won ton chips my sister brought me back from Hawaii and BonCabe Level 10 chilli seasoning. The noodles are nice and fat and springy. Very good. The flavor broth has a kind of buttery taste to me but with maybe a broccoli or green vegetable aftertaste. It’s quite good – better than expected, what with my experience overall of vegetarian varieties. 3.75 out of 5.0.
