#2012: MAMA Vegetarian Instant Noodles Shiitake Flavour

The last of four varieties especially made for the Nine Emporer Gods festival time of year. During the festival, people take only vegetarian dishes – no meat! Let’s have a look in this one and give it a try, eh?

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Vegetarian. To prepare, add package contents to a bowl. Add 350ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The powder soup base.

Has a kind of mushroomy scent.

The oil sachet.

Has a kind of sesame aroma.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added tofu puffs. The noodles came out just fine – good gauge and chew. The broth… Well, I imagine if you like shiitake mushrooms a LOT, this might be for you. Unfortunately, I’m not a fan. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850987101847.

The tom yum variety is also exceedingly good – 10 Packages Mama Vegetarian Instant Noodles Tom Yum Flavour
