Curry Prince Penang Authentic White Curry Instant Noodle 馬來西亞咖哩王子檳城白咖哩麵
Since the Penang white curry instant noodle craze started by MyKuali last year (2013), many manufacturers have jumped on the bandwagon. The amazing thing is that many of these new kids on the block also make very good Penang white curry instant noodles too.
Consumers are really spoilt for choice now (unlike the days when MyKuali instant noodles were in short supply everywhere).
Today, I tasted Curry Prince Penang Authentic White Curry Instant Noodle, another newcomer that joined the fray in Mar 2014.
Inside the packet were the oil fried noodle block, and three sachets. One chili paste, seasoning powder and non dairy creamer.
The oily chili paste had a slight hae bee (dried shrimp) aroma.
The small heap of seasoning powder.
The non dairy creamer.
My bowl of spicy hot curry noodle ready to eat within 5 minutes.
The noodles were generic, slightly soft and spongy with a wheat flavour. Bits of real chili cling to the noodles, adding flavour to it.
The medium bodied broth had a distinct hae bee (dried shrimps) aroma and robust savoury prawny flavour. The broth (thickened by non dairy creamer) felt grainy like curry from the street side stalls with spices and chili.
A pleasant spiciness lingered a while in the mouth before fading.
And now, for the trademark Johor Kaki dip stick test.
Curry Prince Authentic White Curry Instant Noodle did moderately well in the dip stick test.
Though there was non dairy creamer and seasoning powder in the broth, I was able to drink up almost all of it. I ate the whole bowl of noodles and drank nearly the entire bowl of curry because I enjoyed it. But, I don't think I would do that often as the non dairy creamer made it quite gelak (bloating sensation).
I found Curry Prince Penang Authentic White Curry Instant Noodle very similar to MyKuali's version.
Curry Prince Penang Authentic White Curry Instant Noodle is not certified Halal.
Rating: 6.5/10 based on Johor Kaki standardised instant noodle rating system.
