Here’s the first in the special series I did for Apple Daily of Hong Kong.I have always been a fan of curry, especially spicy curry. However, lately it’s pretty far and few between I get to review ones that are this far east – usually they’ve been from Singapore or Malaysia and not Hong Kong. Sounds good to me! Let’s check it out!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains pork and chicken. To prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Certainly smells like curry!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, carved squid and ito togarashi. The noodles come out in that nice Nissin way – good gauge and chew. The curry variety I’ve been able to purchase in the USA that’s from Hong Kong over the years is very similar. It’s got a nice kind of British curry taste to it – unlike the sweet curry you find in Japan, this one has just the light edge of black pepperiness to it. It’s a flavor I remember when my mom would make curried chicken livers when I was a kid. The spiciness is there – not extreme but a little reminder that it does say spicy on the package. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878000043.
