#2157: Master Kong Artificial Mushroom Chicken Flavor Instant Noodle

Here’s one sent to me by Colin – thanks again! So these have been a real conundrum for me for quite a long time. The little chef on the logo is definitely different from the regular Master Kong chef, but I can’t get to the bottom of the exact name of this brand and so it’s Master Kong?

I dunno – I’ve gotten hold of the distributor via the phone number on the back of the package but really haven’t gotten a straight answer. If anyone’s in New York – check this place out perhaps? Would love to straighten it out once and for all. Anyways, mushroom chicken. Let’s do this!

Detail of the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. The package doesn’t list an exact amount of water to use, so as with other Master Kong varieties I’ve reviewed, 500ml will be used. Add everything into a bowl and add 500ml boiling water. Cover for 4 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block. – a very large one.

Dry soup base powder.

Such a light powder than when I puored it out, there was almost a vapor coming from it.

The paste base.

A thick concoction.

The vegetables sachet.

Cabbage, carrot and onion.

Finished (click to enlarge). A lot of noodles – and they’re pretty good. The broth has a nice chicken mushroom taste and has a good oiliness to it as well – nice and hearty. The vegetables hydrated well enough. A nice bowl of chicken mushroom noodles. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6909146402393.

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