#2545: KOKA Instant Noodles Laksa Singapura Flavour

#2639: KOKA Instant Noodles Laksa Singapura Flavour - Singapore - The Ramen Rater

Here’s another one left from the KOKA Meet The Manufacturer series. They sent so many different varieties – it’s great! Thanks!

Laksa Singapura was one of the varieties I liked the best in the rice noodle style as well as the non-fried style. I think these are fried noodles and so should be a little different. Let’s check it out!

Coconut powder!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added squid, Dodo shrimp and fish ball, coriander, chilli oil, fried onion,  and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. I really like this one – starting with the noodles, they’re definitely on the soft comfort food end of the stick. Not only that, there’s a decent quantity. The broth is excellent – a little tart, a little seafood, a lot heavy on flavor and a nice bit of spiciness. The coconut powder really helps out here. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8888056820023.

Previously, I reviewed the package version of Laksa Singapura – the Delight version. The Signature and Delight ranges have a couple of key difference in that the Delight is non-fried whereas the Signature are fried.

So, what’s Laksa Singapura? Wikipedia has this to say –

Laksa is a popular spicy noodle soup in the Peranakan cuisine.[1][2] Laksa consists of rice noodles or rice vermicelli with chicken, prawn or fish, served in spicy soup; either based on rich and spicy curry coconut milk, or based on sour asam (tamarind or gelugur). It can be found in Malaysia,[3] Singapore, Indonesia[4] and Southern Thailand.[5]

Laksa is a food blend of Chinese and Malay culture. Singapore Laksa Lissio using 11 kinds of fresh herbs are formulated specially chosen by professional chefs and has been tested both locally and abroad. Interestingly, only here you can choose yourself of carbohydrates for laksa, noodles can, fried flat rice noodles or noodles. The contents of Singapore Laksa Lissio consists of slices of fresh fish, crunchy bean sprouts, boil eggs, chicken eggs, and tofu, which are then doused with coconut milk that is hot, and delicious.

I should note the second paragraph above was translated from Malay. So, yeah let’s give this one a try!

Shrimp, peas, coriander and chilli flake.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added laksa leaf, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Dodo fishballs, sweet onion and tau pok. The noodles did remarkably well for 2 minutes of steeping – impressed by that. They weren’t spongy either but full and with a nice chew. The broth has a very nice laksa taste to it with the expected seafood notes and a very welcome creaminess as well. The included garnish hydrated well and the soup’s oiliness was just right. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8888056805112.

I’m reviewing this on March 14th and it’s actually my birthday today! I just got done doing a really big project on spicy noodles and though maybe it would be nice to do a review of something curry. I was looking through the samples and saw this one and realized I do have laksa leaves in my fridge so I’d better review it. So, what’s Laksa Singapura? Wikipedia has this to say –
