#1806: Cintan Mi Segera Mmm… Perisa Goreng Ala Indonesia

So this is the last one that I got during my trip last October to meet the folks at MyKuali in Malaysia. We took a ferry from Georgetown, Penang over to Butterworth, Penang and went to an Econsave where I got to get a ton of instant noodles! It was a real blast for sure. Almost exactly a year ago today we were on our way home – probably was over the pacific at this point! Wow – truly was an amazing trip. I want to thank them for their kindness and for showing us such a good time! Let’s check out this last one that I brought back.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 360ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

A dual sachet: seasoned oil in the top compartment and dry seasoning in the bottom.

A light powder.

A sachet of sweet soy sauce.

The oil and sweet soy sauce co-mingling.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, coriander and shrimp. The noodles came out well and had a decent consistency and chewiness. The flavor was a little on the sweeter side and seemed to be missing a little ‘something.’ But they were pretty good. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9556156039421.

#1793: Cintan Mi Segera Mmm… Perisa Asam Laksa

Yet another from last year’s Malaysia trip I gotta wolf down before it goes bad! Asam Laksa is a flavor probably most people in the USA haven’t heard of or know how to pronounce when read or spell for that matter. Well, it’s a sour spicy soup with fish. At least that’s the layman’s way or explaining it. It’s really good – had it while in Penang – man I wish I could go have some more… Anyways, let’s check this one out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains seafood. To prepare, add noodles to 360ml boiling water (note – the amount of time isn’t listed so I’ll do the standard 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!

A soup base sachet.

A spicy scent to this one.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added Dodo cuttlefish balls, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and white onion. The noodles hydrated very nicely and have a good quantity. The broth although thinner than I’d hoped had a very nice spiciness, fish taste and sour aspect. It covers the bases. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 025296931128.

#1789: Cintan Mi Segera Mmm… Perisa Ayam Cendawan

The onslaught of Malaysian varieties continues! This is yet another I got on last year’s trip to Penang, Malaysia. If you’re wondering what Ayam Cendawan means, basically it’s chicken mushroom. My wife Kit really likes mushrooms, so I thought I’d make this one for her today. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains seafood. To prepare, add noodles to 360ml boiling water (note – the amount of time isn’t listed so I’ll do the standard 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!

The baggage gandlers were pretty mean to this one!

The soup base sachet.

Indeed has a kind of chicken and mushroom scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added bard boiled egg and baked chicken. The noodles came out pretty well – standard gauge and chew to them. The broth is pretty good too – has a definite salty chicken flavor but with a mild mushroom flavor. Not overwhelming; just right. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 025296913056.

#1632: Cintan Mi Segera Mmm… Perisa Kari

Another one I got during our trip to Malaysia in October! I’ve heard Cintan was the first instant noodle company in Malaysia. This one looks to be fortified with protein – something I think is pretty cool. Adding some vitamins and protein to instant noodles can help make instants a little more healthy. Let’s check out this curry by Cintan!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to boiling water (I went with the standard 400ml) and cook 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachet and enjoy!

During it’s trip back, the bag got beat up by the baggage handlers it seems…

The soup base sachet.

Has a salty curry scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added fish ball, mung bean sprouts, coriander and tau pok. The noodles were very standard instant – maybe a tad thinner and kind of baseline. The broth was thin and very salty; I was expecting a stronger curry flavor. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 025296932088.
