Just when I thought the Penang White Curry Instant Noodle craze has finally run it's course, yet another brand jumps on the bandwagon.
This time from MyOri, another Penang White Curry Instant Noodle brand from from Penang.
Actually, there must be at least 20 brands of Penang White Curry Instant Noodle in the market now. I have about 10 brands of Penang White Curry Instant Noodle spread across my table now, waiting for me to review. Friends brought me a couple to a dozen local brands of instant noodles for me to taste, whenever they go overseas.
The usual suspects inside the MyOri Original flavour 原味 packaging. A noodle block, a sachet of seasoning powder and a sachet of curry paste.
When I snipped open the sachet, the dark red curry paste let off a slight spice, lemongrass and chili aroma.
Even though these were the steamed and fried type of instant noodles, the noodles were clean and not greasy.
My hot bowl of orange red colour curry mee was ready to eat within 5 minutes.
There was the aroma of curry spices rising from the bowl of instant noodles. Come to think of it, are you always able to detect curry spice aroma from hawker or food court stalls?
Sometimes I can't, especially at food courts.
The noodles were tender, slightly springy, but not spongy or mushy. They were clean tasting with a slight wheat flavour.
The broth was light bodied yet the flavour was quite robust. Only mildly spicy but the spice flavours from lemongrass, chili and herbs were nice with the taste of hae bee (dried shrimps) clearly present.
Artificial flavour enhancers were used but it felt quite sparing and did not bother me.
And now, for Johor Kaki's signature dip stick test.
Moderate amount of grease. Made me cautious about drinking up the broth but it was tasty enough for me to finish almost of all it, except for the bottom most, visibly greasy bit.
I found MyOri Penang White Curry Noodle (Original flavour 原味) very similar to MyKuali's version.
MyOri Penang White Curry Noodle (Original flavour 原味) is certified Halal.
Rating: 6.5/10 based on Johor Kaki standardised instant noodle rating system.
