This is one by Nissin Singapore. Thomas from MyKuali got me a bunch of instant varieties during our trip to Malaysia – this was during our trip to the Econsave in Chain Ferry, Butterworth. I thought today would be a good day for a really short geography lesson.
As you can see, peninsular Malaysia is between Thailand and Singapore. That being said, you see a lot of instant noodles not only made in Malaysia in Malaysia, but ones from it’s neighbors as well. If you look on the map for George Town, you’ll see Butterworth just to the right on the mainland. We took a ferry from George Town to Butterworth on the Strait of Malacca – that was really awesome! Let’s have a look at this one from Nissin Singapore.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, add noodle block to 450ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
A soup base sachet.
Has a salty and spicy scent.
The oil sachet.
Has a strong sesame oil scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprouts, sweet onion, coriander, prawn and red pepper flakes. The noodles are of a very standard gauge and have a very familiar baseline chew – these are what you expect when you look at the instant noodle. The broth has a nice sesame flavor with a good little hit of spiciness. It’s a very cold day outside here today and this is a very nice accompaniment. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888279211028.
This is a 12 pack with 2 of each of 6 different varieties – worth a look! A great gift for someone who likes instant noodles and trying new things.
