MyKuali has been tinkering with upgrading their recipes during the last year or two. One thing they told be when I visited in 2014 was that the hawkers are always fine-tuning their recipes, and that they planned on doing the same thing. When I asked what the difference is with this new iteration, I was told that an aspect of the shrimp powder has been altered to give it an even more authentic taste. I found tha the Hokkien Mee I had in Penang a couple years back was very close to what I got from the MyKuali Hokkien Mee. Let’s see how this one tastes.

The noodle block.
The powder soup base sachet.
A very light powder.
the paste sachet.
The garnish sachet.
Wonderful fried onions.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, hard boiled egg, barbecue pork and prawns. The noodles are very good – plump and engorged nicely. The broth is just sensational; such a rich prawn flavor – it’s prawntastic to say the least. The spiciness almost seems like it was boosted in this one and the oiliness is just right. To top it off, fried onion just makes everything sing in perfect harmony. Sweet prawn, spicy chillies and a little crunch. Just plain awesome got a lot better. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.
