#3254: Mom’s Dry Noodle / Blue Elephant Red Curry – Taiwan

#3327: Mom's Dry Noodle / Blue Elephant Red Curry - Taiwan

Two weeks. Two long weeks. I haven’t done a review in two weeks!! Our apartment got remodeled, plus I had a sinus infection that basically knocked out my sense of taste. Yeah – that wasn’t cool at all. But I’m back – back to walking, and today back to reviewing. The remodel is done and I’m enjoying my noodles once again!

I think the fact that I love curry is probably on my sleeve. This is something I am very fascinated with – a collaboration between a Thai company and a Taiwanese company. How’s it going to taste? I’ve not a clue, but if it’s anything like Mom’s Dry Noodle has put out before, I know I’m in for a treat. Let’s find out!

A wet sachet of red curry.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sauteed beef, red and green bell pepper, white onion, pineapple, and fresh basil. Noodles are soft and a very large quantity. They’re a perfect match for the red curry which is aromatic and tasty, however not overwhelming. A very apt pairing with an elegant balance. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4717011158304.

#1970: MyOri Malaysia Penang Red Curry Noodle

Really excited about this one! I think you’ll understand why when you see the back of the package! I’ve taken an offer by MyOri to be their brand ambassador!  I’m honored do to so – not only is it a really neat gig, it’s for products I honestly enjoy and find innovative and a real compliment to the market. I reviewed these last year as part of a Meet The Manufacturer with MyOri. Ther’s a difference now – they’ve changed the name to red curry, given the packaging a real facelift and now the noodle are not fried – the first white curry featuring the healthier noodle. Let’s give ’em a look!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains crustaceans. To prepare, add contents of the paste sachet to 350ml boiling water. Add noodle block and cook for 3 minutes. Add in contents of remaining dry powder sachet. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The dry soup base sachet.

A light powder with fleck of seasoning.

The paste sachet.

A lot of paste with a really excellent scent to it.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Dodo fish balls, tau pok and mint. The noodles are definitely different from the original version. They seem a little lighter and less heavy – a nice change. The broth has that one two punch I love about white curries. The  spiciness and rich, deep flavor collide so nicely. The oiliness and thickness of the broth marries it all together masterfully. I figure if my face is going to be on a pack of instant noodles, a white curry is where it’s at and this one is excellent! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9554100286495.

#1389: Tiger Tiger Traveller’s Choice Thai Red Curry Flavour Instant Noodles

Here’s one that Joe B. and Sarah B. sent me from Nottingham, UK – thanks! Very curious about this one as I really like curry. But it’s from the UK – will it be strong or weak? Let’s check it out.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 300ml water. Add noodle block and contents of sachet and lower heat. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until water has been absorbed. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The seasoning sachet.

A ton of light powder.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, Fresno chilli pepper, sweet onion and Texas Pete Sriracha Cha! sauce. The noodles were crumbly, a a little more so than I would say is a good thing. The direction say to cook until the water is absorbed – about 3-4 minutes. After 6 minutes, there was still a lot of water in there. The flavor is more masala than red curry, which left me disappointed. It’s not bland like many UK instants though which was a nice thing, but not nice enough. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars.
