Picked this one up this year at the PriceSmart foods in Richmond, BC in Canada during my birthday trip! This is definitely an export version. How do you know? Well, look at the myriad of languages here – French, German, Arabic and English are all here on the front. A lot of companies make export versions and sometimes they’ll make a spicy version which for their local market is spicier than for the export market. There’s so much that goes into figuring out how to tune flavors and such for different places. Let’s check out these Mamee Prawn Flavour instant noodles!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. T prepare, boil 400ml water and add noodles. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in contents of sachet and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A very light powder.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added prawns, mung bean sprouts and coriander. The noodles were very run of the mill and kind of a standard baseline instant. The broth had a kind of prawn flavor but didn’t jump out at me and say prawn. Disappointing. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPc bar code 051325111087.
Here’s a Mamee Chef TV advert – if you look very closely, you can see a The Ramen Rater logo on the cup and on the pack at the end!
