A knock at the door and a package in my hand. Wasn’t sure what this is but let’s open it and find out!
Prima’s Juzz’s Mee Samples – United States
This (click to enlarge) is the version of the Creamy Chicken Juzz’s Mee that is available in the United States. The version I’ve reviewed in the past (which is on The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time 2016 Edition) is the version which contains chicken and this one does not. Curious to see how it stacks up compared to the Singaporean version., I wish Southeast Asian countries could sell varieties with chicken pork and beef freely here. It would be nice – and I think everyone would enjoy them! The noodle aisle would be transformed, that’s for sure! Thanks to Prima for sending this along! I’ll be reviewing it soon!
Three of Prima Taste’s products (click to enlarge) – Prawn Soup, Laksa and Curry.
The trio of Juzz’s Mee (click to enlarge) – curry, creamy chicken and original spicy. Since exporting chicken from Southeast Asia is tricky to do to the West, they’ve come out with a chicken free creamy chicken I’ll be reviewing soon!
They also sent a couple of posters (click to enlarge) – you’ll be able to see them in The Wall Of Fame section soon!
Looks like I’ll be doing some interview here in the USA soon! Those are always a lot of fun. I asked Prima Taste over in Singapore if they could send some samples along of the products they have that are in the Top Ten this year – and they did!
These two (click to enlarge) have been on the list a long time in their normal form, but these are the new wholegrain versions. The Laksa was #1 for 2016 and the Curry #5.
The #8 spot was held by this Creamy chicken Juzz’s Mee – seriously awesome stuff! Thanks!
This is the third and final variety of the Juzz’s Mee I got from Prima a while back. So far, the other two were extremely good and I’ve been looking forward to this one. I’ve always been fond of creamy chicken instant noodles – a couple companies here in the Us have made creamy chicken variants that have been some of the best chicken varieties I’ve tried. I’m very curious about a Singaporean take on creamy chicken – so let’s have 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 380ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A powder sachet.
The chicken soup base.
A second sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and chicken baked with Johnny’s Chicken Seasoning and BonCabe Level 10 rubber into it at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. The noodles are great – flat and have a great chewiness. The broth is indeed creamy chicken; almost cream of chicken which is especially appreciated; great thickness and flavor. The interesting thing is the inclusion of what were like little meaty floaters in there – like TVP meat and it was very good. My new favorite creamy chicken! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

This is the second of three Juzz’s Mee varieties I have here to review. I’d never heard of them until Prima sent them my way! They’re the same company as Prima Tastem which makes a wonder Curry La Mian and Laksa Lamian that have both been on my top ten list for a few years now. I just found out last night that Juzz’s Mee is wordplay on ‘just me’ or ‘just for me.’ I got to find out as I had dinner last night with a couple nice folks who invited my wife and I to dine with them in Seattle! Check out this post I did about it on foofoomayo. Let’s have a look inside!

The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Has a nice curry scent.
A sachet of creamer.
An ultrafine powder.
A seasoned oil sachet.
Has a kind of spicy onion scent.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Dodo fishballs, hard boiled egg, tau pok, coriander and red pepper flake. The noodles are wide and flat with a bit of thickness. Again, they are remind me of Taiwanese Hakka style noodles, just a tad narrower. They have a strong comfort mouthfeel and good chew. The broth is fascinating to me in that it has a nice oiliness and thickness, but isn’t a violently strong curry. It is spicy, but not spicy enough to make people run for the hills. It kind of seems like instead of curry flavor, it should be called creamy curry flavor. Great bowl! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8886350068127.
