Re-Review: Prima Taste Singapore Laksa Wholegrain La Mian

When it comes to my favorites and the annual The Ramen Rster’s top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time list, I like to take nothing for granted. This one has been number one for the past two years and I’m guess it will be so again this year – but I have to try it first just to make sure. Did they change the recipe? Has my taste changed? It gets a little tougher every year with this list as every year there’s about 400 new varieties I’ve been sampling. Anyways, here we go – let give it another try and see how it stacks up!

Aromatic coconut milk powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, scallion, tau pok, fried onion and Dodo fishball. The noodles come out thick and with just the perfect chew to them. Indeed, they seem very artisan – very rustic and hearty. The broth is the stuff of dreams – a nice spiciness, a strong flavor of fish and shrimp and a rich depth from spices. The coconut milk powder gives it a richness and creaminess reminiscent of cooking for hours. 5.0 out of 5.0 hours – just as good as the first time I tried it.   EAN bar code 8886350067854.

Re-Review: Prima Taste Singapore Curry Wholegrain La Mian

Ah, curry. I’ve loved curry since I was very young. My mother would make a curried chicken liver over rice dish that to this day I crave. Unfortunately, she’s not keen on the chicken liver that they sell at the store anymore. Thankfully, curry is popular around the world and there are no end in sight of options to get my curry fix. When it comes to the instant noodle realm, this is one of my my absolute favorite avenues. It’s been on the Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time list for years – both in Wholegrain form and the original. Let’s crack it open and see what’s in this big pack of noodles!

A heaping amount of coconut milk powder. What I like is that when I open both of the sachets I get a whiff of deliciousness – and the coconut powder has a nice sweetness to it.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, tau pok, Dodo fish balls, and spring onion. The noodle is exquisite – nice thickness and just a perfect texture to them. What’s more is that in the exact time called for, they’re perfect. Good chewiness. The broth is a luxuriant thick curry – not overly strong but exactly and just right. To speak plainly, this is perfectly delicious. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8886350067830.

#1947: Prima Taste Singapore Laksa Wholegrain La Mian

So Prima Taste has recently come out with wholegrain varieties. It was explained to me that wholegrain noodles can tend to be brittle or crumbly – so to prevent this, Prima has created a superfine powder. Indeed, the curry whole grain la mian was absolutely wonderful stuff! The noodles were perfect and had a kind of rustic, artisan kind of character to them. The point of wholegrain noodles is to promote a healthier alternative to white flour. Not only that, these are not fried noodles. Instant noodles are now starting to attempt to please the consumer with more healthy options. Pretty cool! I’m very curious how this laksa does! Let’s dig in and find out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add the sachet contents to 500ml water and bring to a boil. Add in the noodle block and simmer for 7 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The first of two huge sachets: the laksa paste.

Has an elegant shrimp scent along with other spices.

The second sachet…

A very aromatic quantity of coconut powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Dodo fish ball and carved squid. These noodles are just amazing – they have a kind of rustic and artisan kind of heartiness to them. I get asked ‘if you had to pick one and you were going to be banished to a desert island’ – well, these are contenders. The broth is simply mind blowing with a wonderful rich laksa flavor – a nice amount of heat and layers of flavor. This is what it’s all about for me. This is perfection. I like it even better than the original. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8886350067854.

#1907: Prima Taste Singapore Curry Wholegrain La Mian

Here’s something new from Prima Taste that’s geared a little more towards healthy living – this one has noodles made with special wholegrain flour. Their original version has been on my top ten list for a few years now, and I’m very curious to see how this one is. Seems like a good day for some curry! Let’s crack it open!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp paste. To prepare, add contents of sachets to 500ml boiling water and stir in. Add in noodle block and cook for 7 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The first of two very large sachets.

Has a nice strong curry scent.

The second large sachet.

A ton of coconut powder!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Dodo fishballs and tau pok. The noodle block is big and of a great quantity. The noodles are thick and have a very strong backbone and chewiness which is excellent. As for the difference in flavor from the wholegrain flour, it is there and quite nice! Definitely gives a more ‘wholesome’ kind of taste to the noodle. The broth is as always just exceptional stuff – thick and has a rich curry flavor. Beautiful! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8886350067830.
