Meet The Manufacturer: #2179: MAMA Oriental Kitchen Instant Rice Vermicelli In Gravy

This sounds interesting! I don’t think I’ve heard of rice vermicelli in gravy before. It looks like it will be beef gravy from the picture. Guess we’ll see! Let’s have a looksie…

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add everything to a bowl and add 210ml boiling water. Cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

Superthin vermicelli.

The first of two sachets, this one large and dry.

Lots of fluffy powder.

A large liquid sachet.

Thick and oily!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added beef and basil. The vermicelli came out very well – and of course I used a pair of kitchen scissors to do a couple of cross cuts. Now, the gravy was definitely gravy; very thick and very good! I am really impressed with this one; has a kind of beef kind of spices kind of hint of spicy thing going on and just kept my tastebuds confused, astounded and fascinated. It’s not extremely often I find something new that is nothing like I’ve tried before and like it, too. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8851876000265.

#1258: Meet The Manufacturer: President Chicken Flavoured Fried Noodle

This is an interesting one; there’s ABC and there’s President. I’ve seen the logo on products made in other regions too – Taiwan most notably. Let’s see how this one tastes!

The back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil the noodles for 3 minutes. In a bowl, put all the sachet contents except the fried onion. Drain the noodles and combine them with the ingredients in the bowl and sprinkle with the fried onion.

The noodle block.

The dry seasoning sachet.

A very fine powder.

Three connected liquid sachets (from left to right): seasoned oil, chilli sauce and sweet soy sauce.

Has an onion scent.

Chilli sauce on the left and sweet soy sauce on the right.

The garnish sachet.

Fried onion.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion and chicken sauteed with BonCabe chilli spice, fried egg, Dua Belibus chilli sauce and kerupuk aci. The noodles have a good consistency and texture. They have a very standard instant noodle gauge. The flavor is sweet and salty with just a hint of spicy. It’s definitely more chicken than other mi goreng I’ve had. The fried onion ends up giving everything a nice little crunch. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 8992388312290.
