Another one from Colin – thanks! In 2014, I visited Malaysia and found quite a few varieties of Cintan products at a grocery store called Econsave in Butterworth. I didn’t expect to get one from somebody who lives here and sourced here. However, I’m very curious what this original flavor is like. Moreover, what is original flavor? Perhaps their vegetable flavor? I guess we’ll see. Now, let’s check it out!
#2299: Cintan Mi Segera Mmm… Original
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shellfish. To prepare, add noodle block to 360ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The seasoning sachet.
A kind of small amount of seasoning.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, tau pok, sous video chicken and hard boiled egg. First, noodles hydrate out well – very standard. The broth is interesting, but not at the same time. I would call it chicken flavor since it is definitely more chicken-like. However, it is on the bland side. Finally, if you’re the type who is non-committal to anything involving choice, this is the flavor for you. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 025296932026.
The onslaught of Malaysian varieties continues! This is yet another I got on last year’s trip to Penang, Malaysia. If you’re wondering what Ayam Cendawan means, basically it’s chicken mushroom. My wife Kit really likes mushrooms, so I thought I’d make this one for her today. Let’s check it out!

The baggage gandlers were pretty mean to this one!
The soup base sachet.
Indeed has a kind of chicken and mushroom scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added bard boiled egg and baked chicken. The noodles came out pretty well – standard gauge and chew to them. The broth is pretty good too – has a definite salty chicken flavor but with a mild mushroom flavor. Not overwhelming; just right. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 025296913056.
Another one I got during our trip to Malaysia in October! I’ve heard Cintan was the first instant noodle company in Malaysia. This one looks to be fortified with protein – something I think is pretty cool. Adding some vitamins and protein to instant noodles can help make instants a little more healthy. Let’s check out this curry by Cintan!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to boiling water (I went with the standard 400ml) and cook 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachet and enjoy!
During it’s trip back, the bag got beat up by the baggage handlers it seems…
The soup base sachet.
Has a salty curry scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added fish ball, mung bean sprouts, coriander and tau pok. The noodles were very standard instant – maybe a tad thinner and kind of baseline. The broth was thin and very salty; I was expecting a stronger curry flavor. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 025296932088.
