Laksa noodles paired with a curry broth – I can’t really think of anything so well matched. Although I usually think of Laksa a little further south of Thailand in places like Malaysia and Singapore, all the flavors from that area of Southeast Asia play very well together. Let’s give it a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, egg, tau pok, Dodo fish ball and nanami togarashi. The rice noodles were pretty good – decent consistency and very light chew. The broth had an underlying kind of green curry hit, but it felt like the lime really beat it into submission and overwhelmed it. Since these are two separate products, they get their own scores. The noodles score a 3.5 and the broth a 2.5. UPC bar code for noodles 859792002323. UPC bar code for broth 859792002293.
