#2065: Four Seas Kung Tak Lam Vegetarian Noodle (Mushroom)

I had a bit of trouble figuring out what this variety was called – until I scanned the back of the package and noticed it on the top left corner. This is one that I received from Apple Daily of Hong Kong for a special news feature. Kung Tak Lam is a popular vegetarian restaurant in Hong Kong. Let’s crack it open and give it a try!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add package contents to 600ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base powder.

A granular mixture.

The sauce sachet.

Methinks I see mushrooms.

The vegetables sachet.

A very nice varied mix of vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added tofu puff, spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles have a good gauge and chew to them – a skosh larger than the baseline instant. The broth is a light one, with a mushroom taste throughout. It’s kind of what you would call a delicate flavor – and not salty, however it has a nice oil to it. The supplied vegetables hydrated very well – especially the little pieces of mushroom. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4892616015815.
