#2962: Canton Instant Noodles Chicken Curry Flavour

#2962: Canton Instant Noodles Chicken Curry Flavour

Okay – guess where I got these? Yeah – Canada. At the Real Canadian Superstore. These are made in Bangladesh. So, are they a Bangladesh product, or something geared this way for Canada. This is always a tricky thing for me to figure out and ultimately, I have to just pick. The pack mentions that it’s a product of Bangladesh and has many languages, however the Nutrition Facts are designed for Canada – in English and French. So I’m going to go with this is an export product and labeled just for Canada, but it’s not made in Canada. One thing also to note is the absence of Canadian mentions – made by so-and-so for insert Canadian company here. Usually, this would make it Bangladesh, but then there’s the bar code – it’s a 12 instead of 13 digits. Leaning Canadian again. But then if you look at the commercial at the bottom, this package is in English instead of the local language. I’m slapping a Bangladesh label on it. Let’s check it out.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2662: Alhami Instant Noodle Chicken Curry Flavor

So you’re probably going to say ‘so what gives – this is the second Alhami Chicken Curry one you’re reviewing. Key differences I see from the packaging are the work flavor and the word flavour. To me, this denotes two different markets that these will be in most likely. The second is this one’s shiny back and the other isn’t. Shiny backs are tough to scan as you’ll see below. Well, let’s get to it – it’s chicken curry time!

I’m really excited about this series – and the fact that I’m getting some help from a local business. Jonathan over at Waroeng Jajanan. The store and restaurant combo is just an amazing place to check out authentic Indonesian cuisine, and you’ll be seeing a lot of (pretty much all) that I add in the end being from there in this series. Alright – let’s check out this one from Alhami as part of Meet The Manufacturer!

#1319: Adabi Mi Segera Kari Ayam Instant Noodles

Here’s one that Annie T. from MyKuali sent me from Malaysia – thanks again! It’s been a lot of fun trying varieties from Malaysia and Singapore in the last year. Usually they’re pretty hard to come by where I live, so new stuff is always welcome. I’d never heard of Adabi brand until a couple of months ago. The first one I tried was #1276: Adabi Mi Bandung Prawn Mee – and it was really good! I’m curious if this is going to be your standard chicken curry or something a little different. Let’s have a loot inside!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). I’m not sure if this is meat free or not. To prepare, boil 400ml water. Add seasoning sachet contents to water. Then add noodle block and cook for 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately and enjoy!

The noodle block.

This was sort of a surprise – only one seasoning sachet. Usually packaged instant noodles from this region seem to have a few.

Not that one sachet can’t be enough, though. It contained a lot of strong curry seasoning base – smells good and a bit spicy!

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added grilled chicken, green onion, sweet onion and BonCabe Level 10 chilli seasoning. The noodles are pretty good – they start out with a light chew and end gorged and soft. The broth has a very nice curry taste and a good heat to it. This is excellent stuff – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 9556252282127.

#1273: Sainsbury’s Basics Instant Noodles Chicken Curry Flavour

Here’s another one from Joe B. of Nottingham, England – thanks! Sainsbury’s is a chain of supermarkets in the UK that were founded in 1869. They make two lines on instant noodles – the basics and a more premium version. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the pack (click image to enlarge). Says it’s veggie and vegan friendly. To prepare, empty seasoning sachet into 200ml water and boil. Break up noodle block into 2 or 3 pieces and cook for 2 1/2 minutes.

Seasoning base sachet.

Has an interesting scent that kind of makes me think of curry, but only kind of.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and baked chicken with garlic salt. The noodles are a little more crumbly than I usually prefer, but they’re not too bad. The flavor is not as bland as many British instants; in fact, it’s got a decent taste to it. Not exactly chicken curry, but honestly not too bad. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 628635401148053.

#720: Golden Mie Chicken Curry Instant Noodles

Here’s one of the more exotic varieties I’ve gotten. This one was sent to me by Carter B. of Lancaster, PA! Thanks! Your stickers are in the mail! He picked these up in Mali and brought them back and sent them to me! Very kind! Let’s have a look.

Here’s the back of the package – notice where it’s from (click image to enlarge)? Dubai! Very cool!

Here’s the dry contents dual-packet. Chili powder on the left, soup base powder on the right.

Spicy chili powder!

Soup base powder.

Here’s some seasoning oil.

All ready to go.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added a little bit of stir-fry vegetables, a two egg omelet with a little roast beef inside and atop that some Huy Fong Sriracha hot sauce and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt. First, the noodles: they definitely have a different character than something you’d find in a pack of domestic noodles. They seem to be more crumbly during the chewing. They’re not chewy but they’re firmer too. I liked them a lot! The broth is nice – not extremely salty or flavored; more mild. It’s nice stuff to taste. All in all, I like it. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars! UPC bar code 6290496000187 .

#651: Wingsfood Mi Sedaap Mi Segera Mi Sup Perisa Kari Ayam

Yesterday I went to HT Oaktree Market on 100th & Aurora in North Seattle. I went to get some things to make a batch of my curry soup and of course hit up the noodle aisle. Was thinking of re-reviewing the Mi Sedaap curry I’d had before as well, but as it turns out, I snagged a new one I hadn’t reviewed yet. Then this morning, I noticed a lot of people coming to The Ramen Rater from a forum on a Singapore website – they were all coming because of a link to Mi Sedaap Perisa Asli, something I’d reviewed a while back. I thought I should review a new Mi Sedaap today, so here we go.

Here’s the little sticker that was on the back of the pack.

Here’s the back of the package without the little sticker (click image to enlarge).

Here’s the noodle block.

From left to right, a packet of seasoned oil, a packet of curry powder, and finally a combo packet of seasoning powder and chili powder.

That darker brown powder close to the top is the curry. Well, the instructions say that you’re supposed to add that on top at the end – my bad… Kind of weird how it says to add all ingredients and then at the end says to add that. Would’ve thought curry would be a key ingredient in chicken curry noodles. But I digress.

Click image to enlarge. Cooked an egg with the noodles and added a tiny bit of Krazy Mixed Up Salt on top. The noodles are pretty good and the broth has a great curry flavor. I would have liked a slightly stronger spiciness to it, but all in all this is a great chicken curry noodle bowl. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 8998866200332 – get it here.

Re-Review: Indomie Chicken Curry Flavour Instant Noodles

Here’s the first re-review of one of the samples sent by Empire International thanks to Jim C.! This sounded really good after work!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge).

Ahhhh this stuff rocks! From left to right we start with a double packet – powder seasoning on left and chili powder on right. The clear packet contains seasoned oil.

They look so mellow but wow they’re so good!

Here are all the ingredients in the bowl awaiting the noodles…

Click image to enlarge. Added two fried eggs. So these aren’t made like the satay or the regular Mi Goreng – you don’t drain these. I cooked them slightly long so they’d bulk up. The noodles were so good – and the broth was very tasty – a really nice curry flavor. Ah yes – very good! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars! Get it here.

#52: Indomie Chicken Curry Flavor


Indomie: Chicken Curry Flavor
Stars: ****
Notes: Ah now this stuff is classy. First off yes, it tastes like curried chicken. There’s oil, cabe [chili powder], fried onions, and bumbu sauce [the powdered base]. Another fine Indomie product to be sure. Best with a couple small pieces of BBQ pork on the side, a fried egg on top and some pickled ginger garnish. Get it here.
