#1848: MyKuali Penang Red Tom Yum Goong Noodle (New Version)

So the number one on my annual Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time list got some new clothes! Why do I like this one so much? Well, when I got to visit the island of Langkawi, Malaysia (which is a stone’s throw south of Thailand), I got to try all sorts of tasty foods. One was tom yum. I got to try it a couple of ways – check it out!

Notice how the broth is such a deep color? Check the one out on the right – it was served inside a coconut! What they both had in common was the very rich flavor and deep color. It also was much thicker than Thai tom yum that I had in Thailand. I asked about that in May while I was visiting a factory there and they told me that Thais like thin broths while <alaysians like theirs much thicker. At first it seemed pretty amazing that something as traditional as tom yum could be so different with the two countries being so close. But then I thought about the United States and Mexico – definitely completely different flavors of cuisine. Anyways, let’s see if it’s just a new change of clothes on this favorite or something more.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. Hadn’t noticed they’d put my logo on their packs! Looks like it’s on the White Curry and Hokkien Prawn, too! To prepare, noodles to 380ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

A tan powder.

A paste sachet.

Thick stuff with a wonderful scent!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander and lime. The noodles came out perfect as always – good thickness and chew. The broth is a deep celebration of tom yum – it’s almost identical to what I tried in Langkawi. A bite of heat, and a cascade of lemongrass, shrimp and other flavors enthrall the tastebuds like no other. Just fantastic stuff! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555655005234.

#1810: MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle (New Version)

As most of you should know, thishas been one of my all time favorites in the past couple years. When it came out, it was a real game-changer; so much so that over 20 different manufacturers started making their own white curry variants to compete. MyKuali has decided to standardize their packaging and now this is how the product looks. Let’s have a look inside and see if anything else has changed.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add noodle block to 380ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in contents of sachets. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The dry seasoning base.

Has a seafood scent.

The non-dairy creamer sachet.

A fine white powder.

A large sachet of paste.

A strong and thick paste.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added Dodo fish balls, coriander, Salad Cosmo mung beans sprouts, tau pok and ito toughrasi. The noodles came out just as well as always – gorged on broth and with a good backbone. The broth is amazing – thick, deep and rich and amazing. This is just wonderful – still my fave white curry! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 9555655005197.

#1781: MyKuali Penang Hokkien Prawn Soup Rice Vermicelli (Bihun)

Recently, I got a box from MyKuali with a lot of products I’d reviewed before with new packaging as well as a couple of completely brand new products. This is one of the totally new ones, MyKuali’s first bowl offering. It’s also their first rice vermicelli (also known as bihun) variety. Let’s pop open a bowl and look inside!

Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add contents of paste and seasoning sachets and 400ml boiling water. Cover and steep for 4 minutes. Stir and add fried onion. Enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge).

An included fork – and spoon!

The bihun block.

The dry seasoning base.

Has a strong prawn scent.

The paste sachet.

Has a bright scent.

The garnish sachet.

Fried onion!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, pork, squid, mung bean sprouts, egg and spring onion. The bihun did great – as always, I use a pair of kitchen scissors to shorten the noodles or I’ll get broth all over my shirt. The bihun as I said hydrated really well for something steeped. The broth is mind blowing. If you like a thick and serious onslaught of prawny sweetness and heat, this is absolutely for you. It’s so rich and strong and tasty! To top it all off, fried onion bits that are the best I’ve ever had in any instant product – other than the wheat noodle package version of this product. Amazing. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555655005340.

Top Ten 2015 Re-Review: MyKuali Penang Red Tom Yum Goong Noodle

This one is pretty special. When I traveled to Malaysia last year, we got to visit an island off the coast called Langkawi. We went to a couple of really nice Thai restaurants while there and I tried the tom yum soup. It was nothing like anything I’d tried previously; extremely strong broth, with a deep richness to it. It was one of the best things I got to try during my trip! I knew that MyKuali had a new Tom Yum variety and I was very keen on trying it. The day I left, I got a couple packs to bring home and try. That being said, let’s have another look at MyKuali Penang Red Tom Yum Goong and see what makes it so special.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains crustaceans. To prepare, add noodles to 350ml boiling water for 3 minutes. Add sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The seasoning powder sachet.

Has a seafoody kind of scent to it.

The paste sachet.

Has a very tasty scent – sweet and rich.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, mung bean sprouts, lime and coriander. The noodles are the standard fare you get with MyKuali instants – nice gauge and chew with a good quantity and more backbone than many. The broth is, in a word, strong. It’s deep in color and has a spicy bite, strong lemongrass notes and a sweetness to it as well. When I tried the tom yum in Langkawi, I tasted the same kind of flavor and richness in the broth – it was just perfect. This has that same strong flavor and texture – it is identical. What’s even better – it has noodles with it! This is absolutely perfect – it brings my tastebuds to an exotic place so far away. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

#1623: MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle (New Improved Taste)

MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodle was the number one instant on the 2014 top ten list. So what do they do? They’ve changed it to make it better. This is pretty fascinating, but not at all surprising. What I heard again and again while visiting MyKuali in Penang last year was that the hawkers will change their recipes all the time; improving them and refining them. It looks as though that’s what MyKuali is doing here with their product line. Let’s see what’s different about their Penang White curry Noodle!

 Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, boil 380ml water. Add noodle block and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in contents of the three sachets and enjoy!

 

The noodle block.

Dry seasoning powder sachet.

Has a seafood scent.

A sachet of non-dairy creamer.

A very light powder.

The paste sachet.

Has a strong and complex scent of spicy, seafood and spices.

 Finished (click image to enlarge). Added broccoli, tau pok, shrimp and mung bean. The noodles seem a little more elastic and fuller this time – just a little more. The chew and mouthfeel are excellent. The broth is just amazing stuff again – definitely very spicy and strong garlic going on. The broth is darker as well. A couple little changes but still just as wonderful as ever! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555655005197.

#1500: MyKuali Penang Red Tom Yum Goong Noodle

Wow – 1,500 reviews! 1,500 different varieties of instant noodles! What’s even more crazy is that I don’t even feel like I’ve scratched the surface of the world of instant noodles; there are always new varieties coming out, and I think there’s never going to be a day when I’ve tried every variety. Which is a good thing because I really enjoy reviewing these things! Today’s review is a special one. I usually try to pick one that’s a little more interesting than others – and this one is very unique. Usually, companies either send me samples, readers donate varieties I’ve not tried, or I just go to a store and buy them. This is one of the first ones I’ve received directly from a company – literally handed to me. Not only that, I brought it all the way back here from Penang, Malaysia! That’s a long way! I think it was more than 16,000 miles round trip! I’d like to thank everyone who has supported and enjoyed The Ramen Rater throughout the years – without your support and readership, well, it’d be pretty quiet around here! Anyways, let’s check out this new Tom Yum variety from MyKuali! On with number 1,500!!!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains crustaceans. To prepare, add noodles to 350ml boiling water for 3 minutes. Add sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!

The heart of MyKuali’s varieties: the paste sachet.

Smells like tom yum to me!

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added red chilli paddi, fried fishball, prawns, lime and coriander. The noodles are just as always – nice gauge that has a great chewiness and quantity – just right. The broth – wow. It definitely has that full on flavor I experienced in Langkawi. The broth is not only strong but it’s got a thickness to it, and has that kind of aroma and consistency of a broth that’s been stewing all day long. Strong spicy heat, lemongrass and shrimp notes play throughout. This is spectacular; hands down best tom yum instant noodle I’ve ever had – and I’ve had quite a few.  5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555655005227.
