A1 Soup Spices Noodle Bak Kut Teh Flavour Instant Noodle
A1 Soup Spices Noodle Bak Kut Teh Flavour Instant Noodle from Malaysia.
Inside the colourful packet, just the noodle block and the sachet of spice and seasoning powder.
A.K. Koh Enterprise, the manufacturer of A1 brand of instant noodles started as a dried sour plum powder, and herbs and spices maker. So, it is no surprise that the spice and seasoning powder has a nice mild herbal fragrance when I cut open the sachet.
The noodles soaking in a hot tea coloured broth was ready to eat within 5 minutes.
The fine noodles were soft and springy. They were clean tasting and has the flavour of wheat.
The broth didn't have the body of real bak kut teh 肉骨茶 (of course). The flavour, taste and aromas were mildly herbal. Malaysian and Singapore bak kut teh lovers will find it familiar. Quite pleasant, overall. As there was no MSG added, I found the broth drinkable and finished up the whole bowl without feeling any side effects or aftertaste, afterwards.
(Note: Bak kut teh 肉骨茶 is a popular dish in Malaysia and Singapore. It is pork ribs cooked in herbal broth and served with steamed rice and Chinese tea.)
Hardly a trace of oil. Full marks for A1 Soup Spices Noodle Bak Kut Teh Flavour Instant Noodle for the dip stick test.
A1 Soup Spices Noodle Bak Kut Teh Flavour Instant Noodles is certified Halal.
Rating: 5.5/10 based on Johor Kaki standardised instant noodle rating system.
