A very standard (and very wonderful) unique quality of Malaysian cuisine is the fact that tweaks and new recipes are an axiom. I found this out while in Penang, where changing styles of recipes goes on constantly and keeps flavors fresh and fascinating. This culture is present in their instant noodle brands as well – and it’s welcome! MyKuali’s Penang Red Tom Yum Noodle has been on previous Top Ten Lists and is absolutely excellent stuff. Very curious how this new formulation will be – let’s give it a try!

The noodle block.
The paste sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, shrimp, coriander, and pepper flake. This one wasn’t as expected flavor-wise. The noodles are excellent as always – plump and nice on the chew. Unfortunately, the change to the broth wasn’t at all what I expected. I almost felt like it has a mustard element – it just didn’t jibe right at all for me, and sadly so. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555655005227.
