#1226: Master Kong Artificial Braised Beef Flavor Instant Noodle

Here’s one that’s been kind of confusing in the past, and it still is. A guy who said he worked for Master Kong said these aren’t actually Master Kong. When I check the UPC code, it comes up with Kailo Brand Abalone Chicken flavor in a similar sized big cup. Whatever it is, let’s check it out!

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Says it’s meat-free. Says to add 700ml boiling water and all the packets and cover for 4 minutes.

Here’s the lid detail (click image to enlarge).

An included fork!

The noodle block.

Powder soup base sachet.

Has a sweet beefy scent.

Liquid soup base sachet.

Has a nice meaty beef scent.

The solid ingredients sachet.

A smattering of veggies.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added thin sliced beef and sweet onion that I sauteed. The noodles are thin and slightly weak of character, but not too bad. The broth is sweet and beefy and salty. It’s quite nice, actually! The veggies were meh. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s a track from the album mentioned above. Good stuff.

#770: Kailo Brand Chicken Flavour Instant Noodle

Here’s another one that was sent to me by Carter B. – he bought it in Mali but it originally comes from Hong Kong. Chicken time!

The instructions remind me of the ones on the back of the Fuku packs – 3 ways of eating. I like the ‘snack for all time’ reference. Click image to enlarge.

The noodle block – very tight and thin noodles.

Seasoning powder.

Mmm – chickenny!

Seasoned oil.

Pretty thin looking stuff.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a couple of fried eggs, some veggies, some Krazy Mixed Salt, Ajishima Kimchi Furikake and a couple dashes of Tabasco Jalapeno hot sauce. The noodles are pretty good – a little less firm than I’d like. The broth has a ‘real chicken broth’ taste which doesn’t seem completely real. Not too bad though – 3.5 out of 5.0 starsUPC bar code 3379140106987 .

Places in Hong Kong where ‘Enter The Dragon’ was filmed – really cool!

#488: Kailo Brand Big Bowl Noodle Instant Noodle Crab Flavor

So here’s another one of these big bowls! Crab flavor sounds nice!

Again three packets of seasoning – clockwise from top: veggies, seasoned oil and dry powder seasoning.

The powder and seasoned oil had a really funky odor to it… Hmmm…

Click image to enlarge. Finished! I added a couple of fried eggs and some Texas Pete Original Hot Sauce on it. Wow!  Lots of noodles just like with the chicken flavor. The soup was tasty and lots of veggies. I liked this one a lot – it had a nice crab flavor to it and wasn’t funky like the chicken flavor. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars!

A live crab vending machine!

#487: Kailo Brand Big Bowl Noodle Instant Noodle Artificial Chicken Flavour

Here’s a new brand – Kailo! This is a big bowl of noodles too – and what an odd image on the front. But hey, how can chicken be fouled (it’s already been fowled HAHAHAHAHA – bad I know but I’m full of noodles now) it’s such a basic flavor.  So here we go! UPDATE – This stuff is actually ABALONE CHICKEN – that explains a lot.

Clockwise from top left: seasoned oil, powder soup base, veggies.

What surprises me here is how much water this thing wants… I guess we shall see what happens…

Click image to enlarge. Added two eggs (fried). Wow – this one ended up with a lot of noodles – a LOT of noodles! The noodles aren’t bad; a little mushy I spose but not bad. The veggies are interesting; not bad but taste a little odd. The broth is strange; I don’t know how to explain; maybe chickens taste different in Hong Kong but it’s kinda weird. But not bad. It’s different. Yes, different. So for a rating… Hmmm… I think a 2.75 out of 5.0 is about right here. It’s got its pluses and minuses. Get it here.

Couldn’t find a commercial but this looked cool.
