Happy Birthday, Singapore! New Products From Prima Taste

My New Go To When I’m Under The Weather From Prima & Prima Taste

My New Go To When I'm Under The Weather From Prima & Prima Taste

Okay so a week or so ago I got a big package from Prima Taste over in Singapore (thanks again!) – full of tasty stuff! Well, last Sunday I ended up getting the worst stomach flu I think I’ve ever had and it was really crummy. Really did a number on med and put me in bed a few days. This was not from what they sent – let’s make that clear – the stomach flu ios going around. Well, once the clouds started to lift, I was hungry. Didn’t want to do anything spicy and something tasty. My wife made me this Prima Juzz’s Mee with some hard boiled egg and cut up breaded chicken (yeah they’re chicken nuggets – we have kids and hey it’s protein so don’t give me any guff) and some instant rice thrown in there too.

My New Go To When I'm Under The Weather From Prima & Prima Taste

Here it is (click to enlarge)! It was super good and I think from here on out this is my new go-to for when I’m under the weather. I really like it, but I think you can understand that I hope I don’t have to eat it again any time soon – unless I’m just hungry! I should note that Juzz’s Mee Creamy Chicken was on The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time list a year or two ago – super good stuff you should try! Here’s the original review.

My New Go To When I'm Under The Weather From Prima & Prima Taste

While I’m at it, I tried these yesterday – I’ve tried the other Ready Meal varieties they have in the past and was really looking forward to giving this one a spin.

My New Go To When I'm Under The Weather From Prima & Prima Taste

Here’s how it looks after a 90 second spin in the microwave (click to enlarge). It’s ultra good – decent amount of chicken and really tasty! I wish these were available in the United States – it’s a real shame it isn’t. I will say though if you dig and dig you might be able to find it. Some people I’ve been talking to lately have been really amazing me with their resourcefulness in looking high and low for foreign food products I’d never think could be found here or shipped here – and lo and behold, they are and they do! Thanks to Prima Taste for sending these along! I’m feeling better and enjoying food again.

Unboxing Time: New Wholegrain Prawn Soup From Prima Taste

Unboxing Time: New Wholegrain Prawn Soup From Prima Taste

Got this package the other day – and I didn’t expect it. Well, I WAS expecting it, however both I and Prima Taste thought that it probably had been seized by customs. The tracking was going great then it hit Oakland, California and then Import Delay. It stuck that way for over a week – and then started moving again! What’s more, they never opened the package. Let’s have a look inside!

Thank you very much to the folks at Prima Taste! Can’t wait to try everything (some tried before, some new to try) and thank you for the birthday gift!

#2528: Prima Juzz’s Mee Creamy Chicken Flavor (Export Version)

#2528: Prima Juzz's Mee Creamy Chicken Flavor (Export Version) - Sri Lanka - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles

So in 2016, the local Singapore/Sri Lankan version was on the Top Ten list. It’s excellent stuff – love it! This is the export version – what’s the difference? Well, it doesn’t have any chicken in there. I’ve been curious about how this stacks up against the chicken version – let’s give Juzz’s Mee a try!

Non-dairy creamer.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added some baked chicken. The noodles are broad and flat with just a little thickness. They have a medium chew and are very nice. The broth is just perfect. Indeed, it’s creamy and has an excellent chicken flavor to it. Still my favorite creamy chicken variety on the market that I’ve tried. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 013934068107.

A knock at the door and a package in my hand. Wasn’t sure what this is but let’s open it and find out!

Prima’s Juzz’s Mee Samples – United States

Prima's Juzz's Mee Samples For The United States - Singapoire - The Ramen Rater - instant noodles - export

This (click to enlarge) is the version of the Creamy Chicken Juzz’s Mee that is available in the United States. The version I’ve reviewed in the past (which is on The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time 2016 Edition) is the version which contains chicken and this one does not. Curious to see how it stacks up compared to the Singaporean version., I wish Southeast Asian countries could sell varieties with chicken pork and beef freely here. It would be nice – and I think everyone would enjoy them! The noodle aisle would be transformed, that’s for sure! Thanks to Prima for sending this along! I’ll be reviewing it soon!

Product Samples From Prima Taste

Got this neat dual box package in the mail the other day! What’s inside? Let’s see…

Product Samples From Prima Taste – Singapore

Very well packed!

A layer of Prima Taste Fish Soup (click to enlarge)!

Three of Prima Taste’s products (click to enlarge) – Prawn Soup, Laksa and Curry.

The trio of Juzz’s Mee (click to enlarge) – curry, creamy chicken and original spicy. Since exporting chicken from Southeast Asia is tricky to do to the West, they’ve come out with a chicken free creamy chicken I’ll be reviewing soon!

They also sent a couple of posters (click to enlarge) – you’ll be able to see them in The Wall Of Fame section soon!

Finally, a Juzz’s Mee poster (click to enlarge) – thank you very much!

Top Ten List Samples From Prima Taste

Looks like I’ll be doing some interview here in the USA soon! Those are always a lot of fun. I asked Prima Taste over in Singapore if they could send some samples along of the products they have that are in the Top Ten this year – and they did!

2016_6_29_don_002a

These two (click to enlarge) have been on the list a long time in their normal form, but these are the new wholegrain versions. The Laksa was #1 for 2016 and the Curry #5.

The #8 spot was held by this Creamy chicken Juzz’s Mee – seriously awesome stuff! Thanks!

#1925: Prima Juzz’s Mee Creamy Chicken Flavour

This is the third and final variety of the Juzz’s Mee I got from Prima a while back. So far, the other two were extremely good and I’ve been looking forward to this one. I’ve always been fond of creamy chicken instant noodles – a couple companies here in the Us have made creamy chicken variants that have been some of the best chicken varieties I’ve tried. I’m very curious about a Singaporean take on creamy chicken – so let’s have a look!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 380ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A powder sachet.

The chicken soup base.

A second sachet.

Non-dairy creamer.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and chicken baked with Johnny’s Chicken Seasoning and BonCabe Level 10 rubber into it at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. The noodles are great – flat and have a great chewiness. The broth is indeed creamy chicken; almost cream of chicken which is especially appreciated; great thickness and flavor. The interesting thing is the inclusion of what were like little meaty floaters in there – like TVP meat and it was very good. My  new favorite creamy chicken! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8886350068103.

Here’s the one that’s been on my top ten list for a few years – Prima Taste Singapore Curry Lamian Noodles, 26 Ounce

A short news piece about Prima Taste’s newer products.

#1914: Prima Juzz’s Mee Curry Flavour

This is the second of three Juzz’s Mee varieties I have here to review. I’d never heard of them until Prima sent them my way! They’re the same company as Prima Tastem which makes a wonder Curry La Mian and Laksa Lamian that have both been on my top ten list for a few years now. I just found out last night that Juzz’s Mee is wordplay on ‘just me’ or ‘just for me.’ I got to find out as I had dinner last night with a couple nice folks who invited my wife and I to dine with them in Seattle! Check out this post I did about it on foofoomayo.  Let’s have a look inside!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle blcok to 370ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a nice curry scent.

A sachet of creamer.

An ultrafine powder.

A seasoned oil sachet.

Has a kind of spicy onion scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Dodo fishballs, hard boiled egg, tau pok, coriander and red pepper flake. The noodles are wide and flat with a bit of thickness. Again, they are remind me of Taiwanese Hakka style noodles, just a tad narrower. They have a strong comfort mouthfeel and good chew. The broth is fascinating to me in that it has a nice oiliness and thickness, but isn’t a violently strong curry. It is spicy, but not spicy enough to make people run for the hills. It kind of seems like instead of curry flavor, it should be called creamy curry flavor. Great bowl! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8886350068127.

Here’s the one that’s been on my top ten list for a few years – Prima Taste Singapore Curry Lamian Noodles, 26 Ounce

#1901: Prima Juzz’s Mee Original Spicy Flavour

Here’s one of the new ones sent to me by Prima Taste. I hadn’t heard about these before, so it was a really nice surprise!  I immediate found the name interesting – I think it’s a play on ‘just me,’ but I could be wrong. Let’s look inside and see what this new variety is all about.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 500ml boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Drain, but leave the noodles wet. Add in liquid and powder sachet contents and stir well. Garnish with chilli flake. Enjoy!

The noodles are a little wider and flat.

The powder seasoning sachet.

A light powder.

An oil sachet.

Has a spicy onion scent.

The garnish sachet.

Chilli flakes.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander and tau pok. The noodles are wide and thick and have a very nice chew to them I really liked. The flavor was a really tasty with a nice bite to it and even moreso after I added the chilli flake. It reminds me of Taiwanese varieties in the way the noodles are gauged/shaped, but they seem to have a softer tooth. Excellent! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8886350067878.

An Early Christmas Present From Prima Taste

A big box came today! I was expecting one from Prima Taste of Singapore – they have a couple new varieties I’ve been curious to try – let’s see what’s inside!

Wow – a nice looking box! And a card…

Click to enlarge. Wow – thank you very much!

I hate to open it – it’s so nicely wrapped… Okay – I’ll open it 🙂

What have we here?

A Christmas outfit for Miles! Plus, it fits! Thank you!

Another gift!

Very fancy chopsticks and rests – one is a cock and the other a dragon! That’s it – I’m going to have to start getting better at using chopsticks!

So here are some noodles. The one on the left has been on my top ten list for years now – but the one on the right is new – it’s made with 51% wholegrain flour.

They’ve also done this with the curry – I’m very interested and curious how these will be!

I was aware of the new La Mian wholegrain varieties, but never heard about these before. These are called Juzz’s Mee – they’re special flat noodles and come in original spicy, curry and creamy chicken – I’ll be reviewing these soon!

A little thumbdrivwe with videos on how to cook everything! Thank you to everyone at Prima Taste – this was a very nice gift and I really appreciate it! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!
