#2011: Trident 2 Minute Laksa Flavour Noodles

Here’s another one sent by Jen from Australia! Thank you very much! So I though hey – laksa! Sounds good to me! Such a safe looking package too – why not check it out?

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add the noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The powder soup base.

Has a kind of asam laska scent maybe?

An oil sachet.

Smells like curry – okay, now I’m confused.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, crushed red pepper, Dodo fish balls, tau pok, hard boiled egg and mint. This one was interesting. The noodles are your standard instant – regular gauge and soft chew. The broth however had me confused from the start. The acidic scent of the powder base had me thinking asaam laksa, but the oil smelled like curry. Put them together you end up with this broth, which is basically a creamy colored ginger-laden, watery and thin thing that makes me think they were going for something else but though ‘hey, this is pretty good – why not just call it laksa.’ Bummed. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9310182300623.

#987: Trident Singapore Soft Noodles

Here’s another one that I was sent from Australia! Singapore soft noodles – never heard of such a thing.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge).

The noodle block.

The dry seasoning packet.

Kind of a beef flavor powder – interesting.

Seasoned oil packet.

A strong onion scent here.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added broccoli, sweet onion and green bell pepper. The noodles are pretty standard instant noodles – they’re soft and plentiful with a slight crumble to them. The flavoring is kind of bland. There’s some heat and a slight saltiness but that’s as far as it goes. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 9310182300036.

#961: Trident Chow Mein Soft Noodles


Here’s one of the packs that came from Australia! Thanks go to Melanie I. of Jannali, NSW for sending these and also thanks to Mark K. for getting her to do it! The last one was a ‘2 Minute Noodle’ while this one says they’re soft noodles. I wonder what the difference is?

Here’s the back of the pack and the answer to my above question (click image to enlarge). These get drained and then the seasonings stirred in.

The main chunk of the noodle block.

Powdered seasoning.

Not a huge amount.

Seasoned oil packet.

The oil has a light onion scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken, fried egg, stir fry veggies and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt. The noodles aren’t bad – flat and thin. The glavoring however is kind of boring; not like any chow mein instant I’ve had before. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 93101182300043

#948: Trident Hot & Spicy 2 Minute Noodles

Hey check this out! This is the first ever package of instant noodles I’ve reviewed from Australia! Thanks go to Melanie I. of Jannali, NSW for sending these and also thanks to Mark K. for getting her to do it! This is an interesting pack – let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). I really like how in the lower left corner it tells you to “Beware – chili powder is very hot.” A spiciness warning on a pack of noodles that isn’t from Korea! Wow!

The noodle block. On the pack they call it a ‘cake.’

The dry seasoning powder.

Interesting – has a sweet and citrussy flavor to it – I did notice that it says this stuff was made in Thailand for Trident – I wonder if this will be Tom Yum like?

Seasoned oil eh?

Looks more like a paste to me – has a definitespiciness and yet a little more citrus hints.

Finally, we have the one we were told to beware – the chili powder packet. It’s actually much smaller than the other two.

A little taste and… bah – you call that hot? Actually, yes it is pretty hot and – wow it kind of creeps up on you! Okay yeah this is spicy chili powder!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added onion, green bell pepper, ham with some Apinya Thai Chili sauce on top (check it out here), and a sprinkle of Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles were good – what you’d expect in a pack of instant noodles. The broth was excellent and as I expected, it was full of heat and citrus and definitely a Tom Yum flavor. Great stuff – 3.5 out of 5.0 stars! I also want to mention the hot sauce. Apinya sent me a sample the other day and I’ve really fallen for this amazing concoction! It blends the heat of peppers and the crisp depth of ginger in a great way – it’s definitely a premium hot sauce and if I were still running The Sauce Rater, it would get 5.0/5.0 hot peppers!

Couldn’t find much on YouTube about this brand but here’s a train going by in JAnnali, NSW Australia!
