#1947: Prima Taste Singapore Laksa Wholegrain La Mian

So Prima Taste has recently come out with wholegrain varieties. It was explained to me that wholegrain noodles can tend to be brittle or crumbly – so to prevent this, Prima has created a superfine powder. Indeed, the curry whole grain la mian was absolutely wonderful stuff! The noodles were perfect and had a kind of rustic, artisan kind of character to them. The point of wholegrain noodles is to promote a healthier alternative to white flour. Not only that, these are not fried noodles. Instant noodles are now starting to attempt to please the consumer with more healthy options. Pretty cool! I’m very curious how this laksa does! Let’s dig in and find out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add the sachet contents to 500ml water and bring to a boil. Add in the noodle block and simmer for 7 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The first of two huge sachets: the laksa paste.

Has an elegant shrimp scent along with other spices.

The second sachet…

A very aromatic quantity of coconut powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Dodo fish ball and carved squid. These noodles are just amazing – they have a kind of rustic and artisan kind of heartiness to them. I get asked ‘if you had to pick one and you were going to be banished to a desert island’ – well, these are contenders. The broth is simply mind blowing with a wonderful rich laksa flavor – a nice amount of heat and layers of flavor. This is what it’s all about for me. This is perfection. I like it even better than the original. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8886350067854.

    Where can I get the whole grain one? The one linked to Amazon is the normal one, the ingredients don’t have any whole grain in it.

    I was so excited at first to be able to find this noodle in Canada after reading your review. It’s $3 Cdn / bag . Since it was an expensive bag of instant noodle, I followed the cooking instructions to a tee. Sorry, Han. I really wanted to like this noodle, but I just hated it. I had 1 sip of the soup and 2 bites of the noodles, and I had to dump the whole bowl down the drain. I found the noodle texture was strange, too spongy. The broth was the worst part. It had no depth of flavours. All I could taste was the excessive coconut milk with some dried shrimp flavour. The broth was simply too sweet and tasted fake .
