53. Maggi Magic Asia – Ente (Duck)

Another pack of Maggi from Germany! And these are duck flavored! How exciting!!

I am not a big fan of duck meat, however I did like the Pa-lo duck flavored noodles by MAMA, so lets see what this has to offer.

 Cooking Instructions (the best I could do to translate) –

  1. Put the noodles with the seasoning in a small bowl.
  2. Add 300ml of boiling water, let it rest for 4 minutes and stir occasionally.
  3. Tip: add seasoning according to taste.

The only thing I did differently was that I cooked these on the stove but used the same amount of water mentioned on the pack.

These are fried wheat noodles and are slightly thinner than average instant noodles.

The seasoning has a weak duck aroma and I could spot chunks of green and orange which, I am guessing, are dehydrated green onions and carrots respectively.

What a simple looking bowl of noods!

Unfortunately the broth again is too salty for my liking but the noods have a good crumble and a slight chew to them. The thinness of the noodles compliment the texture of this broth really well.

There is also a hint of lime or sourness (so those green bits could be kaffir leaves too! If anyone knows more on this, do let me know). This combination of lime and duck don’t work for me at all.

I decided to add some freshly chopped spring onions and a spoonful of seaweed and chilli crunch to cut the sourness and add some spice to this bowl.

Definitely a better take on the original noodles, however the rating is based on the unadulterated dish.
