Here’s another one from Colin – thanks! I did a little research and really came up with very little. I did find there is a kind of spicy, savory snack mix with the same name, but this is a soup noodle and now a snack noodle so I’m a little confused. This one’s being reviewed actually on New Year’s Eve! Let’s check it out.
Knorr Chatt Patta Instant Noodles – Pakistan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and seasoning to 2 cups of boiling water and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The ‘tastemaker’ sachet.
A coarse powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and white onion. The noodles were good – in quantity and quality with a nice little bounce. The broth was definitely not my cup of tea. It was kind of a sour, tart and acrid affair – maybe like fermented leafy vegetables? I don’t know, but I really wasn’t a fan of the taste. Nonetheless, its unique flavor was compelling. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8961014177510.
Here’s one that Marvin R. sent me from Fort Worth, Texas recently – thank you! Knorr’s a pretty worldwide brand of Unilever. These are from Pakistan! Anyways, let’s have a look at these and give ’em a try!

Next Friday is Halloween and we’ve got some plans with Andy this weekend! Thought he might like this one for breakfast today! He’s been curious about expanding his palate a little bit lately since our trip to Malaysia – something I really like. It took me a while to get to the age that I wanted to be more adventurous with food, and it’s great to see him starting to explore.
Here we are at a local farm and pumpkin patch. Fed all sorts of animals – was a lot of fun! Andy’s wearing the hat and shirt we found in Langkawi!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, add macaroni to 530ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add is contents of sachet and stir. Enjoy!
Here’s the macaroni.
The soup base sachet.
Has a seafood scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added prawns and Chinese long beans. The macaroni was pretty good – very thin walled. The broth wasn’t bad either, although it was so thin and there was so much of it. It had a light seafood taste which was good. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. Andy really liked it! EAN bar code 4898828051115.
In the United States, something like this is more prevalent. Cheese and bacon do have their definite pluses! Get it on Amazon!
Here’s something you wouldn’t find in the United States usually! Macaroni and cheese is a common thing here; almost a national dish! But macaroni and chicken and abalone – in a broth? Nope – not something most would even consider. One thing’s for sure: macaroni is almost always accompanied by cheese here. Let’s see what it’s like cheese free!
Here’s the import/distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge). Contains egg and chicken powder.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, boil 530ml water. Add macaroni and return to boil. Cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add contents of sachet. Stir well and enjoy!
The seasoning sachet.
Has a very well balanced abalone and chicken scent that is interesting.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added red, yellow and orange bell pepper, coriander, sweet onion and grilled chicken. The noodles came out pretty well; they had a slight al-dente chew to them which was alright. The broth has a definite chicken abalone hit to it. Not overwhelming either. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 4898828052815.
Here’s a Knorr advert from Hong Kong. They also make quick serve rotini and penne it seems!
Here’s another one my lovely wife got for me on our trip to Canada for my birthday last year – thanks! Interesting – tube shaped ramen? A couple of brands make these – kind of a neat twist on it. Let’s check it out!
