The third and final of the cups I received from MyKuali – thanks again! The Hokkien Prawn (aka Spicy Prawn Noodle) was #2 on this year’s The Ramen Rater’s top Ten Instant Noodles Of all Time 2016 Edition. I recently read a little about these cups – the noodle they are using is referred to as ‘shabu noodle.’ Just a little something you might be curious about. Anyways, let’s see how the sweetness of Hokkien Prawn translates with this new noodle! Let’s crack it open!

The shabu noodle block.
The soup base powder.
A fine powder with a seafood scent.
The paste sachet.
Smells awesome – like sweet prawn.
The garnish sachet.
The fried onions – big and crunchy.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, hard boiled eggs, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and coriander. The noodles is again thin in this cup and very soft. It’s really interesting – not white but a deep tan color. I wasn’t particularly fond of it with the Penang White Curry, however I’ve found that with the Red Tom Yum Goong it was very well suited, and now again with the Hokkien Mee. The broth here is like you died and went to prawn mee heaven. It’s thick, oily, spicy and tasty. It’s just awesome stuff, and then they go and include those awesome fried onions. The only thing is the bustling of motorbikes and people talking at the hawker court. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8555655005678.
