Today we have a new one from Mamee Chef. Mamee Chef’s products made not only the Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time 2014 list, but also topped the Top Ten Instant Noodle Cups Of All Time 2014 list. Really exceptional stuff! They have come out with two varieties in this flavor: one with their ‘mi tarik’ noodles (noodles made in a way to emulate hand-pulled noodles) and a version that comes with bihun (pronounced bee-hoon, it’s a very thin rice noodle). Today I’m reviewing the wheat noodle variety.
This one is a bit different; I’ve not seen seribu rasa in my instant noodle packs before. It means ‘thousand flavors.’ The fully translated name of this one would be Mamee Chef Thousand Flavors Curry Instant Noodles.
When abroad in Malaysia, I saw not only a wheat noodle in many noodle dishes, but a small amount of the bihun as well. Since Mamee Chef sent me a multitude of packs of both these varieties, I thought today I’d toss in a small amount of the bihun with these. Granted I’m only reviewing the base product shown here, but hopefully in the finished image you’ll see what I’m talking about. When I review the bihun variety soon, I’ll just be using the rice noodle in that one. Let’s get to it!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish and crustaceans. To prepare, cook noodles for 3 minutes in 400ml boiling water. Add in contents of dry sachets and stir. Add in contents of paste sachet and stir. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
Soup base sachet.
Has a seafood scent to it and slight sweetness.
A sachet of non-dairy creamer.
A decent amount of powder.
The paste sachet.
Smells quite nice – curry!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green chilli paddi, about a sixteenth of a block of bihun, hard boiled egg, shrimp, sliced squid, tau pok (tofu puff) and Chinese long beans. The noodles are excellent – they have a round shape and just a hair wider gauge than your standard instant. They are lightly chewy with a subtle crumble that works. The broth is just wonderful! A very strong curry flavor and spiciness – very rich. The broth ands up with a serious thickness as well. This was just excellent – worthy of being called Gold Recipe I’d say! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars easy. EAN bar code 9555022303482.
Here’s a few of the other varieties Mamee makes – Tom Yum, Curry and Vegetarian.
