#2061: Kamfen Dried-mix Noodles Scallop Seafood Flavoured

Here’s one I picked up at 99 Ranch Market a couple months ago. I have a couple brands that I have as ‘reserves’ – if I run low on instant noodles, I know certain stores have always had certain varieties and I can get them at any time. This is one of them. At that point I was running low (although now I’m not). Let’s crack this tray open and give it a try!

From the bottom of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

A card with preparation details (click to enlarge). To prepare, add in vegetable sachet and 500ml boiling water. Cover and let stand for 3 minutes. Use cover drain spout to draiun off excess water. Add in liquid sachet and stir well. Enjoy!

The liquid sachet.

Thick and dark.

The vegetables sachet.

A nice mixture.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp and carved squid. The noodles are broad and flat with a very light chew to them. The sauce covers well and gives a nice sweet and salty seafood flavor throughout. The included vegetables were more than ample and really made this one feel premium. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.

#931: Kamfen Dried-Mix Noodles Soya Bean Paste Flavored

Here’s another of these neat trays. This one’s soybean paste flavored. Interesting again how they use upper and lower case all willy-nilly.

Here’s a scan of the bottom of the box (click image to enlarge).

There were two stickers on the bottom of the box (click to enlarge).

Weird – again two little copies of the instructions are inside (click image to enlarge).

Thin, broad noodles – their color is interesting too!

Soybean paste packet!

Has a nice smell – tasty too!

Veggies!

Looks like corn and onions and greenery.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added stir fry veggies, sweet onion, turkey with a little Texas Pete hot sauce and a little Dua Belibis chili sauce. The noodles are good – very enjopyable consistency and lots of them – broad and thin. The flavoring is great – salty and full of flavor – that Chinese spiced taste of anise and ginger is prevalent. The veggies were okay too. I think I like this one almost as much as the minced pork variety – 3.75  out of 5.0 stars !UPC bar code 6920363402225 .

#928: Kamfen Dried-Mix Noodles Artificial Spicy Pork Flavored

Here’s one I got the other day at 99 Ranch Market. Was hoping they had a few more varieties, but they had two – two closer to the #1000th review! I’m not going to stop, just can’t wait to hit it! I think this one would win the prize for interesting use of upper and lower case characters.

Here’s a scan of the bottom (click to enlarge).

Here are the export stickers (click to enlarge).

Here are the instructions on how to make this (click to enlarge). Going to add the mustard stem at the end as they’re not dehydrated.

An included fork!

The noodles look interesting enough.

Sauce eh?

A paste.

Hey – its mustard stem!

Yeah these don’t look dehydrated – I think I’ll add them at the end.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added some sweet onions, Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake, ham and Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles are kind of like slightly underdone egg noodles, but I don’t think they are at all. Plus, they’re really good – broad and thin. The flavor is quite nice – a little spicy and a nice Chinese pork flavor. The mustard stem goes with it quite well. I like this stuff – 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 6920363402218 .
