Spicy…

Well, this…

…is what it says on the packet and that got me kind of worried as to how spicy it would be. Would it be too spicy for me?

Actually, I saw my ex-student in my English tuition class, now a TESL graduate and an English teacher in her own right, sharing on Facebook something that she tried and she was praising it to the skies. She was watching this Korean man’s Youtube videos and she went and tried his favourite Malaysian instant noodles – Mamee Chef instant noodles lontong flavour and she loved it!

My curiosity aroused, I told myself that I would like to give it a try too so I went rummaging through all the instant noodles that my missus had bought and stocked up in the house but no, she did not buy that one!

I found this…

…instead, another product of that Singapore company but made in Indonesia…

I liked their Mee Goreng Thai Tom Yum Flavour and also their mee pok, dry. I used to enjoy their chicken abalone a lot a long time ago but the one I tried more recently did not quite excite me at all. At best, I would just say it was all right.

Inside, there was just one sachet with the curry seasoning…

…and I had it with one hard-boiled egg and seafood tofu…

…sliced, garnished with chopped daun sup (Chinese celery)…

…and yes, I would say it was nice – I did enjoy it.

It was spicy but the level of spiciness was definitely very manageable, not a problem at all for me and I must say that it did help bring the taste of the dish…

…to a whole new level, nicer than many of the other curry-flavoured instant noodles that we have at the shops and supermarkets.

It isn’t all that cheap though, compared to our Malaysian brands – RM8.50 for a pack of 5, RM1.70 each but that is not surprising at all, something to be expected from a Singapore brand.
