Cheese powder!

Lots of light cheese powder!


Little bits.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added mushrooms and cheddar cheese. the noodles were very good – light on the chew and lent themselves perfectly to the broth, which was a creamy cheddar with bits of mushroom appearing here and there. The flavor had a nice little black pepper note to it as well. The parsley was a nice touch. Still a favorite of mine. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 9557226083054.

#2031: CarJEN Otentiq Cheezy Curry Instant Noodles [Improved Taste]


As with some other varieties, CarJEN has recently kicked up their noodle game a skosh by changing the recipe. I’m not exactly sure what’s changed here – I’ll let my tastebuds let you know! Let’s check it out!

Lot sof it!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Dodo fishball, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, crushed red pepper, tau pok and medium cheddar cheese. The noodles are excellent as CarJEN’s usually are. A comfortable chew and familiar gauge. The broth this time around is a bit less salty which I found very nice. It also seems a little richer as well. The nice hit of spiciness, the creaminess of the cheese and the curry all come together and sing to me tastebuds! Besides – spicy curry and cheese – can’t go wrong with that. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#1722: CarJEN Otentiq Cheezy Curry Instant Noodles

Recently, I reviewed the new CarJEN Otentiq Cheezy Mushroom variety and really liked it. This one is the curry variety – I love curry as anyone who sees my top ten lists can realize rather quickly. What’s neat is that I don’t think I’ve seen cheese curry in an instant before, however I have had cheese curry in an Indian restaurant. Well, let’s see what we have here – it certainly looks nice!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 400ml boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Add in curry powder and cheese powder sachet contents and stir evenly. Add in chilli flakes and enjoy!

Looks spicy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg, shrimp, Swiss cheese, Chinese long bean, tau pok and white onion. The noodles hydrated very well and had a genuinely enjoyable gauge and mouthfeel. The broth was very rich – strong curry flavor with an underlying cheese taste. The chilli flake was a nice addition and gave an extra kick. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9557226083047.

This is pretty good – Gordon Ramsey get some guys to start cooking Malaysia curry and badmouths the crap they had in their fridge previously. I tend to do this to a lot of my friends. Usually, I’ll get a lift to the Asian market and then give them a tour of what to buy to make something truly delicious and well-rounded. Would be nice to get a visit from Chef Ramsey though…

New Cheezy Curry Product Samples From CarJEN

Got a knock late in the day yesterday and a DHL guy saying he had a package for me.

Here’s the new Otentiq Cheezy Curry! I liked their Cheezy Mushroom a lot, and being a curryphile, I’ve been very curious about this one!

These look really neat! I’ll be trying this stuff very soon!

They emailed asking if there was anything else they could send. The Ramen Rater logo is on their E-Zee Curry now and I asked if I could have some of the unused packaging. These are the 5 pack bags. The top is sealed, so I imagine a machine opens the bottom, slides in 5 packs and then seals it somehow.

They also sent a roll of the bags for the individual packs. Thanks! Can’t wait to try the new Otentiq Cheezy Curry!

A New Variety From CarJEN!

Got a big box delivered today! What’s inside? Let’s take a look!

Well packed!

This is CarJEN’s new Otentiq Cheezy Mushroom instant noodles!

Nice packaging! I’m real curious about this one. There’s going to be a Cheezy Curry as well!

They kindly sent along a couple signed posters for my collection! Thank you!

Some literature about Otentiq Cheezy Mushroom – and wait – what’s this?


CarJEN’s Nyonya Curry Laksa was #4 on the 2015 Top Ten list! Looks really nice on there too! Thanks to Sugu, Cherene and Santhosh for sending me these new samples!
