#1648: Wei Lih Instant Noodles With Onion Flavour

This is one I got last month on my birthday trip to Canada! What’s interesting is that it’s one I tried to get along with a couple others from one store up there the previous year but there was some kind of thing that to use a card you’d need to spend at least $20 or something, and since the noodles I found were a far cry from that, I skipped it. I really was bummed – this is nowhere to be found here in the USA so thought this time around I’d see if the place had it – and it did! Let’s check out this Wei Lih onion variety.

 Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles and sachet contents to a bowl. Add 350ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy! Alternately, you can cook on a stove with 500ml boiling water with the same method.

The noodle block.

The dry seasoning sachet.

Has a kind of sweet scent.

The paste sachet.

Has a very strong onion scent.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added white onion and beef I sauteed. The noodles came out very well – good texture and chew. They sucked up just the right amount of broth as they steeped. The broth is just great stuff. If you like strong onion flavor, this is what you’ll be wanting. It has a nice oiliness to it and a really strong onion taste. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.

  1. After having the Jah Jan variety I now prepare these onion ones in a similar way – use the powder for a soup after soaking and draining the noodles, the mix the oil and some Wei lih Jah Jan paste into the dry ramen. Much more preferable to the wet ramen IMO, but I’m a massive fan of dry varieties like Baijia burning dry/broad chili oil .
