#803: Master Kong (康师傅) Premium Taste Roasted Beef Noodle

Here’s another one of the Master Kong variants sent to me by Bo H.! Thanks again! This one is the the first Master Kong large noodle bowl I’ve tried.

The side panels (click image to enlarge).

Includes a folding fork!

The powder seasoning packet.

This stuff has a very nice beef taste to it.

Liquid seasoning packet.

Thick and oily.

Veggies and bits.

Looks like a lot of veggies and some dried beef perhaps.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a slice of cheese and some kizami shoga (pickled ginger). The noodles aren’t the best in the world but they’re not bad – could have slightly more backbone. The broth is great – very beefy and tasty! The veggies and bits are wonderful – excellent veggies and the bits must be beef – if they’re not, they’re the most convincing pieces of TVP I’ve ever had. Darn good bowl of noodles! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 6903252714036 .

This has to be one of the best noodle commercials I’ve ever seen. Ever.

I’m really curious what they’re talking about here – what do Teletubbies, the Master Kong mascot, alpacas and the police have to do with one another?

#790: GreeNoodle Shiitake and Soy Sauce

Aha the GreeNoodle. I will be the first to admit that I think I’ve only liked one of these that I’ve reviewed. This one’s mushroom too, a flavor I rarely care for. But I’m really hoping I like this one.

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). I should also say that the Vulcan Science Ministry has found no evidence that time travel is possible.

Yes. They’re green!

The powdered seasoning packet.

I am not a big fan of mushrooms and really don’t know much about shitakes, but if they taste like skunky earwax, this powder’s spot-on.

Soy sauce packet.

This is pretty decent soy sauce.

Finished (click image to enlarge). As usual, I’m not really stoked on these noodles. While they are great as far as texture and chewing go, they have this strange aftertaste that reminds me slightly of what a freshly opened jar of vitamins has (kind of funny since they purport their rich vitamin content). The broth is mushroom flavored for sure. I must admit I expected it to taste worse than it does, what with the taste of the powder. Long story short, if you have to eat something that says healthy and you like mushrooms and all things earthy, languishing in health food stores and the like, I would say this is for you. It surprises me how much people really like this stuff; I guess my palate is a bit different. In any case, the more varieties of instant noodles, the better! I however can’t finish it I dislike it so much. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8850987139161 – get it here.

This guy’s been doing ramen reviews from time to time on YouTube and so I thought I’d put his up for this one. It’s a different view on this product.
