Today, we bid a fond farewell to the Kabuto Noodles Meet The Manufacturer. These have all been very unique and innovative products. As I’ve said before, most of the instant varieties I’ve sampled from the UK have been, in a word, bland. Flavorless is another word. These have all had good flavor and great quality. Today, it’s laksa, one of my favorite Southeast Asian flavors. Let’s check it out.
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, remove lid and add boiling water to fill line. Cover loosely and let sit for 3-4 minutes. Stir well and let stand an additional minute. Stir and enjoy!
