#2095: Nissin Straits Kitchen Laksa

Got this one sent to me by the folks at Nissin Singapore – thanks! I got it right as I started the last Meet The Manufacturer and so I’ve been waiting patiently to give it a try. Laksa is one of my favorite things – very curious to see what we have here. With that, let’s open the bag and take a look and a taste!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add paste and seasoning powder to 500ml water. Mix well and bring to a boil. Add the noodle block and cook for 4 minutes on medium heat. Stir occasionally. Sprinkle laksa leaves on top. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

A big package with all the sachets inside it.

The big seasoning powder sachet.

A LOT of powder.

The paste sachet.

Lots of paste, too!

Laksa leaves sachet.

I expected them to be more like leaves.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, dodo fishballs, coriander, hard boiled egg and tofu pok. Wow. Okay so Nissin has really upped their noodle game on this one – great gauge and quality – nice chew too. The broth is amazingly thick. It’s got a nice coconut milk powder component and a ton of paste with nice shrimp taste. Indeed, there’s shrimp morsels all through it (by morsel I mean crumb sized bits) so make it about as rich as it can get. The laksa leaves added a little something special. Bravo – excellence! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8888279660055.
