#1735: Master Kong Tomato Sauce Instant Noodle

There’s a new Asian Food Center on 130th & Aurora – went there hunting for some of the fruit I goty to try in Thailand and found mangosteen – and quite a few instant noodle varieties, this being one of them. It’s pretty far and few between that I find Master Kong varieties – always kind of a treat! I want to thank Bobby Y. from Canada for help in translation on this one! Let’s have a look at this one from China!

An included fork!

The noodle block.

The dry soup base sachet.

An ultra light powder.

A liquid sachet.

Has a strong tomato scent.

The vegetables sachet.

A great quantity!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, scrambled eggs, onion and tomato. The noodles were a little extra broad and flat in nature. They had a good texture and chew and hydrated pretty well. The broth had a very nice tomato flavor and a richness I enjoyed. It also featured a slight thickness which was welcome. The vegetables hydrated well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s Master Kong’s Braised Beef big cup – this is excellent stuff!
