After the wild success of MyKuali’s Penang instant Curry Mee, and perhaps not surprisingly, every other player in the market was quick to come up with their own version of this Penang’s favorite hawker dish in instant format.

I was contacted by the representative from Kim Curry to sample their interpretation of Penang Traditional White Curry Noodle.

So a few weeks ago I received a few samples of this instant noodle via mail from Kim Curry marketing all the way from Butterworth, Penang.

The instant noodle seems to be following the ideas from MyKuali, packaging 110 gram of noodle instead of the usual 85 grams like other instant noodle products. Additionally, there’s also separate packets of craemer and chili paste. Total energy from this product is rated at 466 kcal with 219 kcal from fat. So far so good.

To test the Kim Curry Penang White Curry Mee, I went to market to obtain some prawns, long beans, and tofu skin at the cost of about RM 12 to  prepare for dinner for two.

Cooking instruction is simple, bring 350 ml of water per packet to boil, add instant noodle, then add creamer and paste. I also threw in the prawns and other ingredients for the last 2 minutes.

The result is a version of instant noodle that is unmistakenly Penang Curry Mee. The aroma of curry is pretty decent, but not nearly as strong as the version from MyKuali. This would suit those who can’t stomach that sort of spiciness level MyKuali offers.

Additionally, the noodle itself is a little thinner. So if you prefer Penang instant curry mee with a little less kick but still retains the essential aroma, this version may be for you.

  1. Full of MSG la.. dunno how anyone can eat this! LOL … Tasty but thirsty as hell AFTER! 😛

    • ciki: haha I have no problem with MSG, will just drink more water. Not any worse than salt anyway.

  2. KY, have you try instead of soup after cooking the noodle making it a stir fried ?
    I some time do it with ramen and make pan fried noodle and soup mix use for vegetable and meat cooking it and pour on top of noodle.

    • Vickie: I have in fact used the MyKuali curry mee to stir fry, turned out pretty good!

    wah uncle is now loaded with magic ingredient 621, can affect performance or not??

  5. I’m not such a fan of instant noodles as I’m usually horrified when I read the list of ingredients. Their convenience though is rather appealing.

    • The Yum List: ya, and this is especially great for people who aren’t in the country.

  6. Aiyorrrrr!!!! With all your extra ingredients, how not to be nice? Can’t go wrong with prawns…and so many of them some more!

  7. I think i’ll stick to MyKualia, but as if i have to eat all these, i can tapao any fresh Pg Curry Mee anytime i want LOL 😀 😀 😀

  8. halal ka tak halal mee ni…. sy ada beli tapi sy masih ragu mau makan sebab tiada tanda @ cop halal. ❓ ❓ ❓

    • halim: I believe it’s pork free for sure but not entirely positive if they obtained halal certification.
