Meet The Manufacturer: #1839: Vit’s Taste Of Malaysia Penang White Curry Ramen

Today, we have the last review of the Meet The Manufacturer for Vit’s. It’s been fun – lots of strong flavors and flavors is Malaysia! Penang White Curry is one of my favorites – let’s try the first one I’ve ever seen with fresh noodles.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains crustacean (shrimp). To prepare, rinse noodles with cold water to loosen. Add paste and creamer into 250ml boiling water and cook for 30 second. Add in noodles and cook 30 seconds more. Stir and enjoy!

One of the two fresh noodle pouches.

A dry sachet.

A very light, fine powder.

A paste sachet.

Ahhh curry!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Dodo fishball, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, carved squid and tofu puff. The noodles were thick with a nice chew and very nice gauge. The broth was a rich and deep white curry – has a nice creamy look and spicy hit and the strong flavor I enjoy. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 9556354000834.

Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Vit’s Tom Yam Instant Noodles

Re-reviews are kind of a trip sometimes; they don’t get a number, but they get another try. Usually they end up getting the same score, but sometimes they do a little better or worse. I kind of doubt there’ll be any change – had this one for the first time 40 reviews ago at #1791. Let’s give it a look!

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

Smells tom yummy!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, lime, Salad Cosmo bean sprouts and Dodo fish balls. I agree with my previous review: The noodles came out really great – slightly thicker than average gauge and great mouthfeel. The broth definitely has the standard components of tom yam – spicy, lemongrass – but it has a sweetness as well which works so nicely. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9556354000476.

I must say that travelling to Malaysia was one of the highlights in my life. Here’s a Lone Planet guide to KL, Melaka and PG!

So these new Taste of Malaysia varieties from Vit’s come in two ways: a fried instant noodle accompanying a paste or a fresh ramen pouch with a paste. It’s a very early morning here – we had to be up at 3am! In fact, my first taste of the day was this laksa at 5:42am! Let’s check out this new one from Vit’s!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains prawn and anchovy. To prepare, add paste and noodle block to 400ml boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes (I’ll be cooking 3.5 minutes). Stir and enjoy!

Thick stuff!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added carved squid and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles are Vit’s standard fare – nice gauge, good mouthfell. The broth has a nice and strong flavor of spiciness and fish with a good oiliness to it. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9556354000957.

Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Vit’s Mi Goreng Pedas Chewy & Springy

Mi Goreng Pedas translates to Spicy Fried Noodles. I brought some of this back after my visit to Penang, Malaysia last year. Mi goreng has long been a favorite of mine – a little sweet, a little spicy, a little salty, kind of like an Indonesian yakisoba – sounds good, right? Let’s give this one another try, about 140 reviews later.

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 450ml boiling water and simmer for 3 minutes. Drain. Add in seasoning powder and oil sachets. Stir well. Garnish with fried onion and enjoy!

The dry powder base.

A kind of tan colored powder.

A dual sachet of seasoned oil on the left and sweet soy sauce on the right.

A garnish sachet.

Fried onion.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and hard boiled egg. I still agree with my original review: The noodles were as advertised – chewy and springy. They had a thicker gauge than I expected. The flavor does indeed have a nice kick of spiciness as well as the well-known attributes of mi goreng such as a sweetness from the thick soy sauce. However, everything kind of seemed a little on the dry side even with the oil. The onions are a nice touch. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 9556354000353.

Meet The Manufacturer: #1836: Vit’s Taste Of Malaysia Penang White Curry Fried Instant Noodle

Penang White Curry was a flavor that really piqued my interest in Malaysia back in 2013. I was accustomed to curry flavors, but this was something entirely different. Green, red, yellow – those were all familiar, but white? Nowadays, there are many, many varieties of Penang White Curry instant noodles on the market – let’s check out this new one from Vit’s!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains crustacean (shrimp). To prepare, add noodles and paste to 400ml boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add in creamer. Stir and enjoy!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Dodo Prawn Flavor Fishballs, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, mint, tofu puff and white onion. The noodles have an excellent gauge and chew. The broth has a nice oiliness to begin with, a good heat second, and a very savory curry taste. This is some seriously good white curry! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 9556354000988.
