#1572: Master Kong Artificial Seafood Flavor Instant Noodle

 Far and few between are the Master Kong varieties I find locally. This is one of them I got a couple months ago – a real surprise. I don’t know why so many of them aren’t available in the United States; I’m guessing possibly that many of their products contain chicken or beef, and import of chicken or beef into the United States from Asia is very hard if not impossible. Luckily, fish products are generally accepted for import quite easily and here we are. Let’s check out this  Master Kong Seafood instant noodle!

Here’s the import/distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). What’s interesting is that it’s being called artificial, it does contain shrimp.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). While these products don’t have instructions on how to cook them, I generally do the same thing with all of them. Add noodle block and sachet contents to 500ml boiling water. Cook for 3 minutes and enjoy!

Here’s the noodle block.

Powder soup base sachet.

A very fine powder.

An oil sachet.

Has a strong seafood scent.

A sachet of dried vegetables.

Looks like cabbage, spring onion, seaweed perhaps? Carrot?

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added narutomaki, kamaboko, prawns, sweet onion and mung bean sprouts. The noodles have a familiar gauge and chew – not very thick and not very chewy, but all the same decent. The broth has a nice seafood flavor leaning mostly towards the prawn end of the stick. The broth has a decent richness and slight oiliness which is just right. The dehydrated vegetables were alright. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6920208907991.

The packaging here looks a little different so I’m not sure it’s exactly the same, but I’m sure it’s quite similar. You can get it here!

#640: Master Kong Artificial Spicy Beef Flavor Instant Noodle

Sadly, this is last of the Master Kong varieties sent to me by Chad B. of Highland, Illinois – thanks again Chad – your stickers went out in the mail yesterday!

Package back (click image top enlarge).

Three packets – liquid base at top, veggies lower right and powder seasoning lower left.

Here’s everything waiting for the boiling water.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added two fried eggs with a little Cavender’s Greek seasoning, some bok choy, a slice of processed cheese and a few dashes of Texas Pete hot sauce. Rad stuff. The noodles were of good quality and very nice. The broth was spicy and a hint of sweet – just perfect. The extras added a fullness to the meal. All in all, very excellent! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars!

#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.
