The 2013 top ten list I did was highlighted by two flavors at the very top: laksa and curry. Here we find both together! This is one of Mamee’s new Mamee Chef line of premium instant noodles. They use a technology that emulates ‘la mian,’ or hand-pulled noodles. I went to the store yesterday to see if I could find some nice acompaniments for this special pack – let’s check out how laksa and curry play together!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). May contain traces of fish. To prepare, add the noodle block and garnish sachet to 400ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes, stirring gently. Add in the liquid and powder sachet contents, stir gently, and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The powder soup base.
Has a very light and fluffy texture.
The paste sachet.
This is neat stuff – has a satin-like look to it.
The garnish sachet.
Lots of chive and some tofu puff!
Finished (click on image to enlarge). Added a white shrimp, tofu puff, Chinese long bean and sweet onions. The noodles came out extremely nice – gauge and texture are magnificent – Nice chew and mouth-feel. The broth is superb – has a nice curry flavor that is not too strong but very present. The broth has a heartiness to it and a nice heat level; pretty accessible for most folks I would say. I really like the strong cumin flavor as well. The garnish was nice – it included green onion as well as tofu puff which hydrated and was almost identical to the tofu puff I added, minus the size of course. Delectable! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.
