Prima Taste Singapore Curry La Mian Instant Noodles
Prima Taste Curry La Mian Instant Noodles from Singapore. This instant noodle retails at SGD2.75 or RM7.10 for a packet, which is a premium price.
Inside the large packet are the noodle block and two sachets - one curry paste and one curry premix. Everything inside is upsized.
The very clean looking noodle block. There was not a trace of oil as it was made with "steam and air-dry" technology. Clearly a premium instant noodle.
When I snipped open the sachet, there was a pleasant crustacean fragrance from the rempah (spicy chili paste). A little red coloured oil oozed from the paste.
The curry premix powder released a fragrance like that of coconut candy.
The thick and large block of noodles needed 7 minutes in boiling water to cook but this bowl of aromatic curry noodle was still ready within 10 minutes :D
The round noodles were quite fat. They were smooth, soft and more bouncy than average. The noodles had a very slight wheat taste.
The curry broth had good body with nice spice aromas and taste. The spice flavour was mild and it wasn't too spicy. This curry la mian differs from Prima Taste's Laksa La Mian which has more hae bee (dried shrimps) in the sambal paste. So, Prima Taste's Curry La Mian is a good alternative for curry lovers who don't like too much robust hae bee taste or flavour.
Prima Taste Singapore Curry La Mian Instant Noodles was made wholly with natural ingredients. There was no MSG, no preservatives, artificial colouring or flavouring.
The dip stick test - not too oily. The broth was nice enough and I feel comfortable enough to drink up all of it in the bowl.
Prima Taste Singapore Curry La Mian Instant Noodles is certified Halal.
Rating 6.5/10 based on Johor Kaki standardised instant noodle rating system.
