#2137: Nissin Demae Ramen Spicy Curry Flavour Instant Noodle

Here’s the first in the special series I did for Apple Daily of Hong Kong.I have always been a fan of curry, especially spicy curry. However, lately it’s pretty far and few between I get to review ones that are this far east – usually they’ve been from Singapore or Malaysia and not Hong Kong. Sounds good to me! Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains pork and chicken. To prepare, add noodle block to 500ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Certainly smells like curry!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, carved squid and ito togarashi. The noodles come out in that nice Nissin way – good gauge and chew. The curry variety I’ve been able to purchase in the USA that’s from Hong Kong over the years is very similar. It’s got a nice kind of British curry taste to it – unlike the sweet curry you find in Japan, this one has just the light edge of black pepperiness to it. It’s a flavor I remember when my mom would make curried chicken livers when I was a kid. The spiciness is there – not extreme but a little reminder that it does say spicy on the package. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878000043.

#1326: Mamee Mi Segera SLLRRRP! Perencah Kari Xtra Pedas

Here’s another one sent to me by Annie T. over at MyKuali – thanks again! As I’ve said before, I love curry. There are so many different curries out there – sweet, spicy, slightly bland. Pastes, powders, sauces… It’s pretty enjoyable! I’ve been really enjoying reviewing curries from this region – Malaysia and Singapore – wonderful places that make some awesome curry instants! This one purports to be ‘xtra pedas’ which translates to extra hot. Let’s see if this stuff is really spicy or not.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, cook noodles for 2 minutes in 350ml of boiling water. Add contents of curry sachet and stir. Ingest accordingly!

Here’s the noodle block.

A single curry sachet? Yes – only one.

Wow – this is some colorful stuff. It’s got a really awesome odor as well! Smells like curry!

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, sweet onion and corn. The noodles are good – plump with a nice chewiness. The broth is very spicy and hot – not for the faint of heat! It has a good curry flavor to it. If you like spicy curry, check this one out. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 9555022301358.

Wow – yeah this is a pretty rad commercial for Mamee.
