Yet another from last year’s Malaysia trip I gotta wolf down before it goes bad! Asam Laksa is a flavor probably most people in the USA haven’t heard of or know how to pronounce when read or spell for that matter. Well, it’s a sour spicy soup with fish. At least that’s the layman’s way or explaining it. It’s really good – had it while in Penang – man I wish I could go have some more… Anyways, let’s check this one out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains seafood. To prepare, add noodles to 360ml boiling water (note – the amount of time isn’t listed so I’ll do the standard 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block, roughed up by the baggage handlers…
A soup base sachet.
A spicy scent to this one.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added Dodo cuttlefish balls, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and white onion. The noodles hydrated very nicely and have a good quantity. The broth although thinner than I’d hoped had a very nice spiciness, fish taste and sour aspect. It covers the bases. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 025296931128.
One of my favorite instant noodle commercials – from Cintan.
