#2395: Master Kong Chicken Noodle - China - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

Here’s one sent to me by a reader named Colin – thanks again! So Master Kong has been in the news a lot lately. It seems they’ve closed a factory in Taiwan and people all of a sudden thought Master Kong was going to stop producing their products everywhere. However, this is definitely not the case. For example, here we have a Master Kong variety from China. Master Kang (also known as Kang shi Fu) is produced by Tingyi – here’s a little about Tingyi from wikipedia:

Tingyi (Cayman Islands) Holding Corporation (simplified Chinese: 康师傅控股有限公司; traditional Chinese: 康師傅控股有限公司; pinyin: Kāng-shīfu Kònggǔ Yǒuxiàngōngsī; formerly (顶益(开曼岛)控股有限公司; 頂益(開曼島)控股有限公司; Dǐngyì(Kāimàn Dǎo) Kònggǔ Yǒuxiàngōngsī; SEHK322) is the largest instant noodle producer in China. It specialises in the production and distribution of instant noodles,[1]beverages, baked goods and soft drinks with its brand name, Master Kong (康師傅).[2][3] Its headquarters are in the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area in Binhai, Tianjin.[4]

Yeah, so Master Kong isn’t going anywhere anytime soon – your noodles are safe! So let’s check out this chicken variety!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains chicken. To prepare, add package contents to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy! NOTE: this is the method I’ve used for pretty much all of the Master Kong/Kang Shi Fu variants as the package never have instructions for a cooking method; not even this one in English.

I’m guessing we have vegetables and TVP.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sweet onion, baked chicken, spring onion and hard boiled egg. The noodles are nice and soft and very comfort food like. Moreover, there’s a lot of them. The broth has a very nice chicken taste. It also has a good oiliness. It’s definitely got seriously good chicken flavor. The included garnish was great – cabbage and bits of egg in there. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6941037915995.
