#2423: Ve Wong Kung-Fu Instant Oriental Noodles Soup Artificial Onion Flavor

Another one sent by Colin. I haven’t had any of this brand in quite some time! I should also say I’ve not had an onion flavor instant in quite a while too. Very curious about this one – let’s have a look! NOTE – I just was looking for info on this one and as it turned out, I reviewed it in 2010! It was review #99. I’ll still slap a new number on this one though. What’s funny is if you look at the packaging on it from back then, it says ‘New.’ It still says new! I’m sorry, but this isNOT new.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block and sachet contents to a bowl and add 400ml boiling water. Cover for 3-5 minutes. stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The dry base sachet.

A powder flecked with herbs.

An oil sachet.

Has an onion scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion. The nice and comfortable – pretty good. The broth was a definitely onion flavored one – and it really is strong onion. Kind of like I said in a previous review – this is like Funyuns soup! On this go around over six years later, the package still says new and the flavor seems a bit better. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710008211686.

Looks like a drama where one of the characters is enjoying a bowl of instant noodles from Ve Wong.

#513: Dragonfly Artificial Onion Flavor Instant Noodles

I was kind of tripped out by this bowl of noodles: artificial onion? Why would they need to go the artificial route on this one?  Well, why don’t I look at the ingredients. Oh look! Onion powder and onion oil. I’m confused… Anyways, here we go…

Hey a fork! From left to right we have seasoning oil (which has onion oil in it), veggie (which have scallions which are like onions) and the dry powder seasoning (that has onion powder in it).

Ah how they all await the boiling water!

Click image to enlarge. Today I found a new hot sauce at the grocery store – Tabasco Buffalo Style! Kind of like Texas Pete hot sauce with a little extra kick. So what I did was I started frying a couple eggs. When the whites started to congeal, I used a fork and popped the yolks and stirred the eggs just a little bit and added some of the hot sauce. At the end I added a little touch of pepper and Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning.

Okay, with that said I am quite happy with this one. So far with the bigger Dragonfly bowls I’ve had I’ve noticed each really tried to match the flavor that it’s purporting on the label. This wasn’t a super salty painfully onion flavored bowl by any means. The onion flavor was very good and deep. It had a decent oilyness that worked well – and the veggies were very plentiful. The noodles were not above average but just fine. I liked this a lot – 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

This is some awesome oddness you must see!

Can someone please explain what’s going on here?
