#3322: Ve Wong KUNG-FU Instant Oriental Noodle Soup Artificial Soybean Paste Flavor – Taiwan

#3322: Ve Wong KUNG-FU Instant Oriental Noodle Soup Artificial Soybean Paste Flavor - Taiwan

Over 3000 reviews ago, I tried this, so it’s getting a fresh new review. 3000 reviews – holy cow. This was review #274 – before I’d been to Taiwan, before I really knew about varieties like this. Remarkably, I cooked it correctly due to the decent cooking instructions. But this is a diamond in the rough; one of the very few varieties exported to the United States from Taiwan that are cooked in this unique manner. You might be thinking ‘unique manner?’ Well, this is to be enjoyed as a dry noodle AND a separate soup.In the mood for something interesting? Let’s do this.

Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle to 400ml boioing water and steep 3-4 minutes. Drain water into a different bowl. Add the dry sachet to the bowl with water and add paste to the noodles. Finally, stir both and enjoy as a soup and noodle separately!

A dry soup base sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, sesame seeds, and soft egg. The soybean paste noodle is quite good – with pieces of what I’m guessing are textured vegetable protein. A softer noodle (probably not so soft with the low end of 2~3 minutes). The broth is a salty pariing for the noodle with a nice flavor. As a pair, this is a nic flavor and texture and one is eaten while the other sipped. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710008211884.

So this is something I have been meaning to try for a while and have been scoffed at for doing wrong in the past, so here goes. You’ll see quickly that this isn’t your standard pack of noodles…

Packet of paste, packet of powder…

Yeah pretty different huh? Cook the noodles, drain but keep the water, add seasoning to the soup and stir and paste to the noodles and stir.

Indeed, here are the two bowls!

The soup.

And finally the noodles. Well, I was pretty blown away by the results. Good stuff! The noodles were tasty with a bit of a salty and hot bite and almost tasted like bits of pork in there. I found myself instinctively going to the soup to cool off the intense paste flavor. The soup was a salty affair – thin and mellow. It cooled the heat and all in all, the two complimented each other quite nicely. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars – wasn’t expecting to be giving this such high marks, but it deserves them.

Ninjas rock! Big time!
