Meet The Manufacturer: #2763: Red Chef Sesame Clear Soup Noodles

Meet The Manufacturer: #2852: Red Chef Sesame Clear Soup Noodles

Today, we bid adieu to Red Chef with this, the last review. I’ve had quite a few clear soup varieties in my day – and they’ve always kind of confused me, to be honest. The name kind of brings up the thought of something thin and kind of bland to be honest, but they’re generally never that. With what I’ve sampled from Red Chef thus far, I’m going to guess bland isn’t going to be what I find here. Let’s check out this clear soup, the last of the four reviews for this Meet The Manufacturer!

Definitely smells like sesame paste.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, chilli flake and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles worked so well in this one it was just phenomenal. The broth however wasn’t my ultimate cup of tea. The sesame was there and other flavors too, which was nice. It just didn’t appeal to me as the others did in this range. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9556145231034.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2762: Red Chef Pandan White Curry Noodles

Meet The Manufacturer: #2851: Red Chef Pandan White Curry Noodles

It seems that Red Chef is focusing their range on unique facets in their creations – Sakura prawn, the green tom yum and here we have a white curry with pandan. So, what’s pandan? Here’s a bit from Wikipedia –

In India and Sri Lanka it is called Rampé and in Bangladesh it is called pulao pata (পোলাও পাতা ), along with the other variety of pandan there (Pandanus fascicularis), and is used to enhance the flavor of pulao, biryani and sweet coconut rice pudding, payesh if basmati rice is not used. It acts as a cheap substitute for basmati fragrance as one can use normal, non-fragrant rice and with the help of pandan the dish tastes and smells like basmati is used. It is called Ambemohor pat in Marathi; Ramba in Tamil, Biriyanikaitha in Malayalam, pandan wangi in Indonesian, hsun hmway (ဆွမ်းမွှေး) in Burmese, pandan in Visayan languages and Tagalog, ใบเตย bai tooey in Thai, rampe in Sinhala, ស្លឹកតើយ sleuk toi in Khmer, Daun Pandan in Nonya cooking,[3] Dứa thơm/lá nếp in Vietnamese, 七葉蘭 (Pinyin: Qi Lan Ye) in Chinese and बासमतिया पौधा ([bɑːsmət̪ɪjɑː pɑʊd̪ʱɑː]; “fragrant plant”) in Magahi and Bhojpuri due to its fragrance.

The leaves are used either fresh or dried, and are commercially available in frozen form in Asian grocery stores of nations where the plant does not grow. They have a nutty, botanical fragrance that is used as a flavor enhancer in Indian, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Burmese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Khmer, Laotian, Thai, Singaporean, Bruneian, Malaysian, Indonesian and Filipino cuisines, especially in rice dishes, desserts and cakes.

The leaves are sometimes steeped in coconut milk, which is then added to the dish. They may be tied in a bunch and cooked with the food. They may be woven into a basket which is used as a pot for cooking rice. Pandan chicken, (Thai: ไก่ห่อใบเตย, kai hor bai toei), is a dish of chicken parts wrapped in pandan leaves and fried. The leaves are also used as a flavoring for desserts such as pandan cake and sweet beverages. Filipino cuisine uses pandan as a flavoring in buko pandan fruit salad, as well as rice-based pastries such as suman and numerous sweet drinks and desserts.

Alright – that should be enough about pandan – let’s see how it tastes in an instant noodle from Malaysia!

Meet The Manufacturer: #2761: Red Chef Green Tom Yum Soup Noodles

Meet The Manufacturer: #2850: Red Chef Green Tom Yum Soup Noodles

Green Tom Yum? Hey, this is something unique and new to me! I wonder what the story is on this… Let’s find out from Red Chef:

‘Green Tom Yum Noodles brings in the unique flavors of kaffir lime leaves and mixes in with our unique formulation that gives you that instant distinctive Tom Yum sour taste followed by a full body of flavor, ending with a tingly spiciness at the end. We name this product Green Tom Yum because the soup itself is naturally green, with the use of natural green ingredients such as green chillis, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves, lime, etc.’

I’ve had green curry quite a bit but never green tom yum – let’s give it a go!

Sounds like a plan – honestly, Penang, Malaysia is one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been in my life.

Meet The Manufacturer: #2760: Red Chef Spicy Sakura Prawn Soup Noodles

Meet The Manufacturer: #2849: Red Chef Spicy Sakura Prawn Soup Noodle

To start things off, we have a variety with Sakura prawns. I’ve never heard of these – here’s what Wikipedia has to say about them:

Lucensosergia lucens is a species of shrimp popularly known as the sakura shrimp or sakura ebi. The translucent pink shrimp derives its name from sakura, the Japanese word for the cherry blossom. The species grows to about 4–5 cm and lives primarily in Suruga Bay in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, where it is caught to be eaten. It is also caught in Taiwan.

Can’t get enough of shrimp and prawn! Let’s take a look at this, the first in the Red Chef Meet The Manufacturer spotlight!
