#2169: Happy Family Vegetable Flavour Instant Noodles

This is one that the folks from Prima Taste sent me when I did a call for instant noodles to review when I was running low a while back – thanks again! I always love to find  new varieties to review – and what surprises many is that I like trying different store brands. Many will say ‘oh – these aren’t special, they’re common!’ Well, they’re often not common where I live – and if I’ve not tried them, they’re definitely diamonds in the rough! Let’s have a look at this one!

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

A granular mixture.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, spring onion and tofu puff. The noodles have a decent gauge and a kind of plumpness to them when hydrated that I liked. What I really liked here was the broth, a kind of vegetable and black pepper amalgam which was very tasty. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888626078540.

#2125: Happy Family Curry Flavour Instant Noodles

A while back I asked people to send me some noodles as I was really running low on varieties to review. Well, many people did – including some companies. Prima Taste sent these from Singapore – thank you! These look like a store brand perhaps – let’s take a look!

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

This has a very curry scent!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken with NuTek Salt For Life and pepper, coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and chilli flake. The noodles had a surprisingly nice backbone to them – better chew that I had thought they’d have – a pleasant surprise. The broth was a nice tasty curry with a little heat. A nice bowl of noodles to be sure. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888626064871.
