#428: Kamfen E-Men Noodles Artificial Chicken Soup Flavor

So this is something different – E-Men noodles. The ingredients say they’re mad of wheat flour and soybean oil…

Comes with only one packet. This is one large noodle block though and won’t fit in a normal pot. You’ll need something a little bigger to accommodate this thing…

Here’s the soup base.

At the end it said the noodles are ready to be served, but not sure if that’s with broth or not. So I winged it. I added a little boiling water and pulled out the noodles and stirred in the bowl. Some tasty stuff! Thick noodles. The chicken flavor is good. Wide and heavy are the noodles. I’m going with a 3.75 out of 5.0. The noodles were pretty good and the soup tasted chickenny.

#393: Kamfen Dried-Mix Noodles XO Sauce Flavoured

This one looked interesting. I really liked the Nissin Demae Iccho Ramen with XO Sauce, so I thought this would be good too hopefully.

Look! A useful fork! Sauce packet on left, veggies on the right.

I really love it when they don’t include instructions on how to cook the noodles. I decided to attempt to use the packaging to drain them as it looked like that was the idea. Here are the veggies atop the noodle block.

So this wasn’t at all what I expected. It smelled kind of funny when cooking and now upon eating it I don’t know exactly what to think; it’s edible but I can’t really say that I enjoyed it. It’s almost as if I’ve spent too much time pondering it as I eat it… Its kind of greasy and a little bland and the noodles are kind of odd… I’m not sure about this one. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#181: Kamfen Noodle King (Thin) Wonton Soup Flavored

So another one of these big two serving bags. The last one wasn’t all that great so I guess we’ll see how this one fares.

Oil and powder soup base.

The oil was definitely sesame.

#139: Kamfen Noodle King Beef Soup Flavored

So this is one of three packs of noodles I got that are actually two packs. This one was just over a dollar – thought it might be a good deal.

Oil and powder base.

Powder and oil…

Here we are with the finished product (click image to enlarge). It’s got some pretty chewy and thin noodles and the broth is a little funky. Kit doesn’t like it all that much either. “it tastes like dirty water. the noodles were wretched; you know how noodles are supposed to be floppy? They’re way too firm. It doesn’t taste like beef; it tastes like seafood.” I agree. I’m giving this stuff 1.75 / 5.0. Get it here.
