#3322: Ve Wong KUNG-FU Instant Oriental Noodle Soup Artificial Soybean Paste Flavor – Taiwan

#3322: Ve Wong KUNG-FU Instant Oriental Noodle Soup Artificial Soybean Paste Flavor - Taiwan

Over 3000 reviews ago, I tried this, so it’s getting a fresh new review. 3000 reviews – holy cow. This was review #274 – before I’d been to Taiwan, before I really knew about varieties like this. Remarkably, I cooked it correctly due to the decent cooking instructions. But this is a diamond in the rough; one of the very few varieties exported to the United States from Taiwan that are cooked in this unique manner. You might be thinking ‘unique manner?’ Well, this is to be enjoyed as a dry noodle AND a separate soup.In the mood for something interesting? Let’s do this.

Detail of the packaging (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle to 400ml boioing water and steep 3-4 minutes. Drain water into a different bowl. Add the dry sachet to the bowl with water and add paste to the noodles. Finally, stir both and enjoy as a soup and noodle separately!

A dry soup base sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, sesame seeds, and soft egg. The soybean paste noodle is quite good – with pieces of what I’m guessing are textured vegetable protein. A softer noodle (probably not so soft with the low end of 2~3 minutes). The broth is a salty pariing for the noodle with a nice flavor. As a pair, this is a nic flavor and texture and one is eaten while the other sipped. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4710008211884.

#2701: KOKA The Original Chicken Flavor Oriental Instant Noodles - Singapore - The Ramen Rater

I thought I was out of KOKA varieties to review, but definitely not yet. They sent every single SKU they produce for their Meet The Manufacturer. Thanks again – that was really awesome! I have a limit of 15 reviews for a Meet The Manufacturer series, so the extras go into the regular rotation.

The regular rotation is what I call picking a couple packs out of the hampers for the day’s reviewing. I like to pick two that are from different countries and brands than the previous day. Sometimes, this isn’t what happens but usually does. For example, lately I have a lot of Japanese varieties, so a lot are getting into the mix – which is great; the Japanese varieties I’ve not reviewed are surprisingly hard to come by locally.

Today, we have chicken. Chicken instant noodles are almost always present; a company that doesn’t have a straight up chicken variety is kind of rare. Let’s give this one a try!

A very light powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken and spring onions. The noodles have a good gauge and chew – your standard instant with just a skosh more backbone it seems. The broth has a standard chicken flavor with a little extra something. Don’t know what that something is, but as far as chicken instant noodles go, I liked this one. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8888056903862.

It is truly amazing I still have quite a few KOKA varieties to review! Can’t complain, that is for sure – having my hampers stocked well is a good thing and lets me be at ease about not running out of varieties to try. Today its chicken and I got up at 4 am and cooked some chicken in the oven to go into this one. Let’s have a look.

A light powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and baked chicken. The noodles were pretty good – decent gauge and chew. A slightly stronger backbone than expected to be honest. The broth had a patent chicken flavor – not a bad one, but not a surprisingly amazing one. This was a decent chicken flavor instant noodle. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888056603862.

Here’s one from KOKA left over from the KOKA Meet The Manufacturer series earlier this year. This one certainly looks like an export version. How can you tell? A big giveaway is a number of different languages on the packaging. Not a lot of German-speaking folk in Singapore. Let’s have a look at this one and give it a try!

Seasoned oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and fried onion. The noodles were good – springy and peppy. The flavor was a kind of sesame oil and strong pepper taste. To be honest, I really didn’t expect these to be so spicy. But I didn’t really like the pairing of flavors that went on here, unfortunately. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888056708109.
