When I got an email from a company asking if I’d like to sample their Penang White Curry noodle, I was very happy. It’s been a long time since anyone’s asked me to try one – for a while there, it seemed like I was reviewing a different PWC once a week. A couple things t note about this one. First – the name Nyor Nyar – I really enjoying saying it; it’s fun to say – and I’m probably saying it incorrectly. I noticed that on the top left of the package, it mentions ‘inspired by Penang Air Hitam’s White Curry.’ I think they’re referring to the Two Sisters/Two Aunties stall that’s been around for years in Penang and is extremely well known. Although I’ve not tried that White Curry, I’ve tried many, many others – let’s see how this one tastes!

Strong scent – smells good!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Dodo fishballs, tofu puff, hard boiled egg, coriander and chilli flake. I liked the noodles very much – they were solid and meant business. They had a firmness to them I don’t often find without being brittle. The broth was absolutely perfect – it has a very rich and tasty flavor with a passable amount of spiciness and perfect thickness. What I also liked was the absence of grittiness from the paste in the final slurps of broth. This is a perfect White Curry. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555724502015.
