I woke up this morning in the mood for something curry. I was looking in my stores of instant noodles today and found this Mamee Chef Gold Recipe. I’ve reviewed it before, but I thought it would make a good breakfast and would be neat to re-review. I really liked the name of this one – seribu rasa means a thousand flavors, which immediately makes me think of thousand island dressing. Of course, this isn’t anything like thousand island dressing. Let’s have a look inside and see what makes this instant noodle tick.
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!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sliced squid, fish ball, shrimp, coriander and mung bean sprouts. The noodles are made with Mamee’s ‘Mi Tarik’ technology, which is supposed to emulate hand-pulling. The texture and chewiness of these are very good – I would say that the gauge is thinner than hand-pulled noodles I’ve had in the past though. Nevertheless, they are exemplary. The broth has a really great flavor that reminds me of cumin – I really like cumin as a component of curries and this works very well. It has a warm stick-to-your-ribsy kind of flavor and scent and really feels like comfort food. There is spiciness, but not so overwhelming that it kills the mood. This is really great stuff and again as I said in the original review, definitely worthy of the name Gold Recipe. My regards to Chef Ismail! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555022303482.
