#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?

#629: Master Kong Artificial Braised Beef Flavor Instant Noodle

Thanks again to Chad B. of Highland, Illinois for sending these Master Kong packs! Braised beef eh? Hmmm I wonder how this will be – if the Pork one was any indicator, I’m going to like this!

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge). Kind of hard to read – and no exact amount of water to use – I went with 500cc this time.

Clockwise from top left – veggies, powdered seasoning and finally liquid base.

Everything sitting peacefully awaiting the 500cc of water.

Finished (click image to enlarge)! Two egg omelet with Tabasco Buffalo Style hot sauce and Cavender’s Greek Seasoning. Well, I’m really happy to say 500cc of water was perfect. The noodles are tasty – not real chewy but not mushy or soggy in the least. The broth is really quite amazing; it has a hint of spiciness, some sweetness and is full of deep beef flavor. The veggies are pretty good – really round it out. This was very good – quite impressed with such a ho hum package design. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars! UPC barcode number is 705105920191.

That kid’s freakin’ lucky, man…
