We Malaysians are a very fortunate bunch. Good food are abundant and is everywhere. More often than not you really don’t have to walk too far off for your favourite plate of Nasi Lemak or whatever that you fancy. However, should you ever find yourself (God forbids) hungry and lazy, there’s always a quick fix to that. Yes, instant noodles. These Japanese invented convenience is truly heaven sent. We are after all a nation built on Maggi mee!
While being ‘jobless’ for over a week now (yeah, I just like to say that), there are days when I’m just too lazy to get out and get myself some lunch. So I naturally had to ransack my home’s kitchen. And while going through the stash, I came across two very interesting brands of instant noodles. There are local instant noodles other than Maggi. And more over what really caught my attention was the flavour…Bak Kut Teh and Penang Har Mee. Wow, what discovery!
Eager to try it out, I chose the A1 brand Bak Kut Teh noodles. I mean, this is just too easy. Bak Kut Teh? Sure or not? How authentic can it taste? And to my surprise upon tearing open the pack of soup seasoning, the burst of aroma did hit me. IT BLOODY DOES SMELL LIKE THE REAL THING! Salivating, I can’t wait for it to be cooked. Thank God this is instant.
The real test came next, tasting. Took a spoonful of soup and slurp it all in. Gargled it in my mouth. “Very aromatic and tasteful in fact. The blend of spices are not too overpowering. And it taste like the soup was actually brewed with real Pork stock” Terrific! A bowl of Malaysian’s favourite dish has been made easy. Like I said, Malaysians are a lucky bunch. Now everyone can Bak Kut Teh without going to Klang! And yes, the pack of noodles ain’t Halal if you’re wondering thought “Pork” wasn’t listed as ingredient.
Can’t wait to try the Ibumee Penang Har Mee!
