Singaporean Singapore The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Singaporean Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

So for the past few years I’ve been thinking about putting out a top ten list for Singapore. It took me a while though; I wanted to have a TON of Singaporean varieties that I’d tried before doing so. Well, I’ve tried a TON of them now and I felt it would be nice to put out a new list. I’m posting this on Singapore’s National Day – thought it would be fitting. If you’re not familiar with the half lion half fish image in the picture above, that’s a Merlion. It’s the national symbol of Singapore. Here’s a little more about it here. Well, it’s time. These are my favorite varieties that come from Singapore from the over 2,500 reviews I’ve done to date. All these Singaporean varieties are most definitely shiok – so grab your favorite beer (mine’s Tiger) and check it out!

#10: KOKA Delight Tomato Flavor Instant Non-Fried Noodles

I’ve liked these since I first tried them years back. The non-fried noodles have a really great chew and really are about the same as a standard fried noodle. The broth has a wonderfully authentic and strong tomato taste – very fresh. I really like the garnish as well. Original review

#9: Nissin Cup Noodles Tom Yam Seafood Flavour

I’m still to this day intrigued by how much noodle can be in a Nissin Cup Noodles! A nice spicy cup of noodles. Strong seafood flavor with the added bonus of a spicy and crisp lemongrass hit. Included garnish is exemplary and the new version (coming in a post soon) has even more! Original review

#8: Prima Taste Singapore Fish Soup La Mian

Singaporean Singapore The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Singaporean Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

By pairing their premium thick and chewy la mian noodles along with a rich broth, this fish soup variety makes for a very tasty meal. What’s more, adding a little whiskey to the broth gives it an even moire sumptuous effect. I had wanted to try this one for years before I got my hands on some and it was definitely worth the wait. Original review

#7: Maggi Extra Spicy Curry Instant Noodles

The noodles in this one are your standard instant variety – nice quantity too. What I like about this is the curry flavor – strong with a little extra kick of spiciness – not too much though. Definitely one of those late night comfort foods I’m sure most would really enjoy. Original review

#6: KOKA Signature Laksa Singapura Instant Noodles

The noodles only take 2 minutes to steep and come out very well. Add to that a rich creamy and seafood laksa which is masterfully augmented with included garnish which works very well. Oiliness is right on the mark and everything comes together so nicely. Original review

#5: KOKA Creamy Soup With Crushed Noodles Sweet Corn Flavor

Rethinking the instant noodle, this cup comes with two large sachets – one with a lot of powder base and one with crushed instant noodles. At the end, you wind up with a very thick and luxuriant kind of corn chowder affair which is very satisfying – and the corn hydrates perfectly and is sweet! There are a couple things which in many instant noodles that  don’t hydrate well in instant noodle cups and bowls and often, that’s corn. Glad to see it done right. Original review

#4: Prima Juzz’s Mee Creamy Chicken Flavour

The noodles in this one are broad and thick,m however soft and gentle. They remind me of some varieties of Taiwanese noodles – although softer. The broth is very rich and tasty with a very good thickness. An excellent creamy chicken which I’ve found to be just perfect. Original review

#3: Prima Taste Singapore Curry Wholegrain La Mian

Singaporean Singapore The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Singaporean Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

These have been in the annual Top Ten List for the past two years and their non-wholegrain brethren have been for even more. Chewy, artisan feel noodles are engaged with a very thick and rich broth with huge sachets of paste and coconut milk powder. Brilliant stuff. Original review

#2: Nissin Straits Reborn Laksa – Singapore

Singaporean Singapore The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Singaporean Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

The noodles have a 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. Everything comes together in such a way that it just sings.  Original review

#1: Prima Taste Singapore Laksa Wholegrain La Mian – Singapore

Singaporean Singapore The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Singaporean Instant Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

This is my favorite of the 2500+ reviews I’ve posted to date. It is number one in the annual 2017 top ten and was also in 2016. The noodles are thick and full with a great chew and being wholegrain, they have a kind of rustic and artisan feel to them. Just can’t get enough of them. The broth is thick and full of flavor. The pack contains a pair of sachets: one with coconut milk powder and the other with a lavish laksa paste. The flavors and noodles marry together in a crescendo of flavors that keep me coming back for more – bravo! Original review
