One of the last ones I got during my trip to Penang, Malaysia last year to visit the folks at MyKuali. This is from a store called Econsave. I had seen this Super brand before but was always curious if I’d end up with any of them; very elusive. Let’s check out the pepper crab mi goreng!
Our power was out for just over an hour earlier – A nice change for some family time.

What do we have here?
Yup – crabstick!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added crab claw shaped fishcake, coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and white onion. The noodles came out very soft – very light in texture. The black pepper flavor was definitely there in this one, as were elements common to mee goreng like the sweet soy flavor and nice oiliness. The small pieces of crabstick hydrated nicely and worked well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888240110220.
