Review: Kang Kang Express Meal Kit

Ever since I discovered Kang Kang range of noodle products a couple years ago, it is my go-to choice whenever I make Char Kway Teow, Pad See Ew, Fried Hokkien Prawn noodles, etc.

For the first time ever in Singapore, pasteurised fresh wheat and rice-based noodles are now available. So what’s the big deal about this whole pasteurisation process? Pasteurisation kills harmful bacteria, viruses, molds and yeasts in food. Through this process, the product shelf life can be further extended without compromising the taste and texture of the noodles.

Each pack retails at $2.95.

Traditionally, fresh noodles only last for a couple of days and they definitely need to be refrigerated to extend the shelf life. The biggest factor I favor using Kang Kang noodles is the texture, taste and convenience. Personally, I’m not a fan of using chilled fresh noodles, especially rice noodles. They tend to dry out and break apart easily even before cooking.

Kang Kang Kway Teow – soft and supple.

Kang Kang noodles, which can be kept at ambient conditions (room temperature) for 1 month, the texture of the noodles stays fresh and supple even without any preservatives. It can also last up to 6 months in the chiller. No washing or blanching required, even for the yellow noodles. I’m very sensitive and put off by the strong lye smell from yellow noodles, however I fail to detect it from Kang Kang yellow noodles, another plus point!

Truth be told, when I came across Kang Kang Express Meal Kit during my weekly grocery trip to the supermarkets, I was a little skeptical. No doubt I’m a fan of their fresh noodles, I knew nothing about the quality of these flavors.

Coincidentally last week, I was invited to try out the express meal kits and experienced the ease of preparation using TWO CONVENIENT METHODSmicrowave and stove top. Total cooking time – 4 minutes.

Using the recommended amount of water as stated on the packaging is important to achieve the right flavor.

If you do not have a measuring jug, you could use a cup like this and measure out 1& 1/2 cup water.

I was pleasantly surprised by the authenticity in taste from each flavor. It was hard to imagine they came out from an express meal kit.

These pasteurized noodles do not need refrigeration, you could keep them handy in the office drawer or save precious space in the fridge at home. As Annie Tan, Director with TSK foods said: “Each bowl is delicious just the way it is and perfect for office professionals who needs a quick pick-me-up when hunger strikes. For home users, the sky is the limit when dressing up each bowl with vegetable, meat, seafood and other condiments. With the long shelf life, Kang Kang Meal Kits make ideal meal packs to send to family and friends living and studying overseas.”

Annie also humbly revealed that they are already exporting Kang Kang noodles to the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Hong Kong and Middle East. I’m really impressed by how these third generation owners are constantly evolving to keep our homegrown products alive and introducing them to the other parts of the world.  

TSK Foods has also established itself as a trusted Halal (MUIS) certified noodle manufacturer and distributor.

Kang Kang Express Meal Kits can be found at all major supermarkets – FairPrice, NTUC Finest, Giant Hypermarket and Sheng Shiong. Look out for the colorful shelves display in the fresh food section.
