#2757: MyKuali Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle (2018 Recipe)

#2828: MyKuali Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle (2018 Recipe)

I’ve always been impressed how often MyKuali changes their recipes. I want to say this may be the fourth iteration of the Hokkien Prawn Noodle thus far – at least that they’ve sent and I know of. I’ll admit I’ve not always been keen on the changes, but it really is nice to see companies that want to keep improving – even a product that’s very well received to begin with. Let’s see how this new change taste!

Crunchy bits of onion!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, shrimps, white onion and spring onion. The noodles came out just as they always have – the perfect gauge and chew . They engorge themselves happily on the liquid as they cook while keeping adequate backbone. The broth is a thick, sumptuous prawn flavored affair full of shrimp paste. Very oily and tasty. I would say as far as the recipe change, I feel like there’s a little less on the sweet prawn hit and a little more spiciness. Still an amazing one, that’s for sure. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.   EAN bar code 9555655005265.

#1965: MyKuali Penang Spicy Prawn Soup Noodle Authentic Taste

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 back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains prawn. To prepare, add noodle block to 380ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add paste and soup base sachets and stir. Garnish with fried onion and enjoy!

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.  EAN bar code 9555655005258.

#1617: MyKuali Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle (New Improved Taste)

During my trip last year to Malaysia, I got to try a lot of Hokkien mee. I think about 4 or 5 different restaurants. Here’s a little bit of info about it from wikipedia:

Hokkien mee is a dish in Malaysian and Singaporean cuisine that has its origins in the cuisine of China’s Fujian (Hokkien) province. In its most common form, the dish consists of egg noodles and rice noodles stir-fried with egg, slices of pork, prawns and squid, and served and garnished with vegetables, small pieces of lard, sambal sauce and lime (for adding the lime juice to the dish).

One thing I heard repeatedly was that hawkers and restaurants change up their recipes often to keep competitive. Well, MyKuali seems to be following their lead by upping noodle quality and the recipe for the paste. Let’s have a look at the new and improved MyKuali Hokkien Prawn Noodle!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains
shrimp. To prepare, add noodle block to 380ml boiling water and
cook for 3 minutes. Add in contents of seasoning and paste
sachets and stir. Garnish with fried onions. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The seasoning sachet.

Has a seafood scent.

The paste sachet.

Has a sweet prawn scent.

The fried onions sachet.

Excellent quantity and good sized pieces.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, pork, hard boiled egg, mung bean sprouts and coriander. The noodles are great – gauge is just a little wider than standard. They soak in
a decent amount of flavor from the broth and have a good chewiness. The broth is a work of art; the strength of sweet prawn flavor is balanced with a well-tempered amount of heat.
It’s thick and has a perfect oiliness to it. To top it off, the fried onions are the best I’ve encountered in the instant noodle world; they are of good size and plentiful. Feels like I’m back
in Penang! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555655005258.

A short news clip about a man who made Hokkien mee in Penang for 50 years!

#1445: MyKuali Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle

The day is upon us – the day to review the new Hokkien Prawn Noodle – the second instant noodle from the company that made the number one on my 2014 Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time list! As with their Penang White Curry Noodle, Hokkien Prawn Noodle is a bit of a mystery for me. I had never tried White Curry before I tried their product, nor have I ever had Hokkien Prawn Noodle before. I did a little digging online and found the Penang Hawker Food Blog. I found this text there:

Hokkien hae mee (Hokkien/Fujian prawn noodles; 福建虾麺) is served in Penang (with a variant served in Singapore known as Hae mee). It is a dish of egg noodles and rice noodles in a fragrant stock, which is made from both fresh shrimp and dried prawns, as well as pork or chicken. Traditionally, small cubes of fried pork fat are added to the soup, but this is now less common due to health concerns. It is garnished with prawns, fish cake, leafy greens, pork ribs, squid, vegetables, crisp deep-fried shallots, spring onions and fresh lime. The dish is served with sliced red chili, light soy sauce and sambal.

I know that I really like prawns and prawn flavored things, but I have a feeling this is going to be something completely different compared to what I’m used to. I love curry, but the curry I’d loved in the past was so different from the White Curry. With that in mind, I dive into the unkown, in search of deliciousness.

Here’s the detail from the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, boil 380ml water and add noodle block. Cook for 3 minutes. Add sachet contents and enjoy!

The noodle block.

Powdered soup base sachet.

Has a seafood scent.

The paste sachet.

Has a very nice aroma of spices and shrimp.

The fried onion garnish sachet.

A very good quantity of fried onions.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprouts, sauteed shrimp and sweet onion with soy sauce and hard boiled egg. Wow. The noodles are nice and chewy and there’s a good quantity of them. They have a nice color to them too. The broth – wow. Where do I begin? The broth has a nice heartiness and thickness. Strong prawn flavor leaps out of the bowl along with a kind of sweetness that is pounced on by a nice spicy heat. The crunch of fried onion is such a nice addition – especially with their quantity and quality; they’re not pulverized tiny bits but nice big pieces. This is truly an exemplary bowl of noodles – I can’t wait to try their next product! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555655005258.
