So near us we have this interesting grocery store called WinCo Foods. Everything’s pretty cheap there and they’ve got a pretty good selection. Last time when we were in the checkout lane, I noticed these sitting on the sideline. I’ve known some pretty serious people when it comes to Singapore street food and the heritage it portends. Not only that, when it comes to curry, I’m very particular. Could this little box hold within a reason for ex-pats and hawkers to stay home and not bother visiting Singapore again or going to work? Guess I’d better find out!

Detail of the outer cardboard (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add noodles and vegetables to tray. Pour sauce sachet contents over noodles and add 2 tablespoons of water. Cover loosely with lid and microwave for 2 minutes. Let stand 1 additional minute. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The tray under the cardboard outer.
The noodle pouch.
A wet sachet of sauce.
A dry sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, squid, fish ball, tofu puff and coriander. What were they thinking? Rice noodles come out light and fluffy to the point that they break too easily. The flavor is acidic and wrong. Lemongrass overpowers and becomes the main flavor. I knew going in that this might not be the best but this was far more terrible than I think I ever expected it could possibly be. Incensed. Disgusted. Ashamed. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars.
