New Red Chef Sakura Prawn With 2 KINDS OF NOODLES From Penang Malaysia

I’ve been a fan of Red Chef’s stuff for quite a while now – their regular Spicy Sakura Prawn Soup Noodle hit the Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time 2018 Edition at #2 and that’s pretty amazing. Today we’ve got a new version – this one has two different kinds of noodle in it – wheat AND rice vermicelli! Let’s crack it open!

One thing’s for sure – when I visited Penang, Malaysia in 2014, I tried a lot of prawn mee. A lot. I think upwards of 5 different bowls from different hawkers and restaurants. It’s serious business, folks! Strong prawn flavors, a sweetness, just plain amazing stuff that’s delicious and addictive. When it comes to prawn mee, I’m very interested. Let’s delve into this new one from Malaysia and see what makes it tick.

#1445: MyKuali Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle

The day is upon us – the day to review the new Hokkien Prawn Noodle – the second instant noodle from the company that made the number one on my 2014 Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time list! As with their Penang White Curry Noodle, Hokkien Prawn Noodle is a bit of a mystery for me. I had never tried White Curry before I tried their product, nor have I ever had Hokkien Prawn Noodle before. I did a little digging online and found the Penang Hawker Food Blog. I found this text there:

Hokkien hae mee (Hokkien/Fujian prawn noodles; 福建虾麺) is served in Penang (with a variant served in Singapore known as Hae mee). It is a dish of egg noodles and rice noodles in a fragrant stock, which is made from both fresh shrimp and dried prawns, as well as pork or chicken. Traditionally, small cubes of fried pork fat are added to the soup, but this is now less common due to health concerns. It is garnished with prawns, fish cake, leafy greens, pork ribs, squid, vegetables, crisp deep-fried shallots, spring onions and fresh lime. The dish is served with sliced red chili, light soy sauce and sambal.

I know that I really like prawns and prawn flavored things, but I have a feeling this is going to be something completely different compared to what I’m used to. I love curry, but the curry I’d loved in the past was so different from the White Curry. With that in mind, I dive into the unkown, in search of deliciousness.

Here’s the detail from the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, boil 380ml water and add noodle block. Cook for 3 minutes. Add sachet contents and enjoy!

The noodle block.

Powdered soup base sachet.

Has a seafood scent.

The paste sachet.

Has a very nice aroma of spices and shrimp.

The fried onion garnish sachet.

A very good quantity of fried onions.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprouts, sauteed shrimp and sweet onion with soy sauce and hard boiled egg. Wow. The noodles are nice and chewy and there’s a good quantity of them. They have a nice color to them too. The broth – wow. Where do I begin? The broth has a nice heartiness and thickness. Strong prawn flavor leaps out of the bowl along with a kind of sweetness that is pounced on by a nice spicy heat. The crunch of fried onion is such a nice addition – especially with their quantity and quality; they’re not pulverized tiny bits but nice big pieces. This is truly an exemplary bowl of noodles – I can’t wait to try their next product! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555655005258.
