To wrap up this Meet The Manufacturer, we revisit our old friend the Penang White Curry. This one says it’s super spicy – something that always piques my curiosity. I’ve had some instant noodles that have said they’re really spicy and they’ve been almost bland (yeah, I’m looking at you Canada and England). Usually though, something that has a little mention on the pack of heat usually isn’t kidding around. Let’s check this one out and see how spicy it truly is.
The back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish and crustaceans. To prepare, boil 350ml water. Add in noodle block and cook 3 minutes. Add in paste and stir. Add in powder sachet and stir. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
The powder soup base.
Again, the light powder with little flecks in it.
The paste sachet.
Has a nice curry scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sliced squid, fish ball, mint and mung bean sprouts. The noodles were nice and full – plentiful and with a good gauge. The broth was rich and full of curry flavor and again had a nice extra ginger hit to it. As for the heat level, it was reasonably spicy and just a tad spicier than their original variety. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9554100286488.
Singapore & Penang Street Food (from Amazon) – Singapore and Penang have a lot in common both in culinary and cultural terms. For centuries they have been at a crossroads of ancient trade, and immigration, giving them a strong multicultural personality. Singapore & Penang Street Food shows the authentic taste of delicious street food in Malaysia and how the street-food scene in Singapore has become more food court nowadays. Regulated out of existence years ago, street food vendors moved into hawker centers where even the most delicate stomachs have the opportunity to partake. Strict safety and hygiene regulations make Singapore’s hawker food some of the safest street food around, keeping high standards of tastiness and authenticity. Beside five different Chinese cuisines, Singapore also offers Indian, Malaysian, Indonesian and Thai street-food dishes. In Penang you will find similar dishes but with a different touch, a different interpretation. The range of regional varieties is endless.
A really great short film of Penang hawker stalls. Such delicacies really need to be experienced by everyone!
