#2287: Master Kong Artificial Abalone Crab 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. Anyhoo, this is a new flavor – abalone crab. I’ve seen abalone chicken quite a bit but never abalone crab. Let’s give it a try!

Here’s the back of the pack (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.

The dry base sachet.

A light mixture.

The sauce sachet.

Dark and oily.

The vegetables sachet.

A medium amount for an instant.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added crab claw fishcake, coriander and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles were alright – plentiful too. Nothing to write home about. What is to write home about is the flavor. Write a warning letter home! I mean this was just plain funky; seemed initially like a crab stick kind of scent and essence but it just turned into this not food kind of taste that I just couldn’t stomach whatsoever. Couldn’t pour this down the drain fast enough. Oh and the vegetables hydrated decently. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 6909146402430.

#2244: Kang Shi Fu Artificial Spicy Beef Flavour

Here’s yet another one sent by a reader named Colin from back east – thanks again! It’s funny how we don’t have any of these Kang shi Fu variants out west – at least not at any of the stores I’m near to. Spicy beef sounds awesome – it’s a really cloudy and rainy day here in  the Seattle area. Let’s check it out!

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 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.

The noodle block.

The powder soup base sachet.

Has a granular look to it.

The liquid sachet.

A thick and oily paste.

The vegetables sachet.

Looks like a little textured vegetable protein along with the vegetables.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added beef, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and chilli flake. The noodles came out nice – good gauge and nice soft nature. The broth has a definitely beef and spicy taste that worked very well here. The included vegetables came out nicely. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8526599430292.

#2229: Kang Shi Fu Artificial Beef With Sauerkraut Flavour

Here’s yet another one kindly sent to me by a reader named Colin from back east – thanks! A lot of people think Germany when they think sauerkraut and that makes sense; it’s a German word for pickled cabbage. But pickled cabbage is exceedingly popular in Asia as well. Let’s check it out!

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 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.

The noodle block.

The dry seasoning base.

A light powder.

The secret sauce sachet!

A thick paste.

A sachet of sauerkraut.

Lots of sauerkraut!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and beef. The noodles are plentiful and soft with a nice character to them. The broth has a good tanginess – definite notes of pickled cabbage here. The sauerkraut is abundant and of good quality – all worked together nicely. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8526599430506.

#2186: Master Kong Assorted Seafood Noodles

Here’s another one that was sent to me by a reader named Colin from the east coast – thanks again! Still amazes me how many varieties of instant noodles are available in the United States I’ve not sampled yet. Let’s dig in to some seafoodiness today!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains fish. 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.

The noodle block.

The dry soup base.

A little light powder.

A liquid sachet.

Thick and oily.

A fancy little garnish sachet.

Fishcake and other goodies.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, fried garlic, chilli flake, Dodo fish ball, crab claw fish cake, shrimp and carved squid. The noodles were a little on the thin size but of decent character and great quantity. The broth was kind of a buttery seafood kind of thing; not bad but not exceedingly impressing on the taste scale. The butteryness worked well with the oiliness which was adequate. The included garnish was of good quantity – the narutomaki hydrated well enough and the seaweed was good, although not as prevalent as I would’ve liked. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6900873033072.

#2157: Master Kong Artificial Mushroom Chicken Flavor Instant Noodle

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!

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.
