Another I picked up in Butterworth, Penang during my Malaysia trip last year. That Econsave was really great – so many varieties! Trying to run through them before they expire! Not this one’s a little interesting – you might say the logo kind of looks familiar… Well, it’s made in Thailand for the Malaysian market by President Rice Products. They make all of the MAMA branded rice vermicelli – and in Malaysia their products go under the name PAMA. Simple really. Anyways, let’s check this one out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare add noodles to 350ml boiling water and simmer 2 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dual sachet of soup base and chilli powder.
The chilli powder atop the soup base powder.
A garlic oil sachet.
Has a nice garlic scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added white onion, coriander, lime, egg, Chinese sausage and cili padi from Dwayne B. The rice noodle comes out very very good – good gauge and soft. Used kitchen scissors as usual to shorten their length during the cooking process. The broth has a nice taste to it – garlic and just plain tasty; kind of a springboard in which other ingredients go so well. This is a good one. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9557128101610.
A little something about Pama noodles.
