Prima Taste Instant Laksa

I ate a ton of instant noodles when I was younger but haven't touched the stuff in the past 20 years or so. But I was intrigued by Charles's post on this Singaporean instant laksa.

I found it at Flushing's Hong Kong market. A bit expensive at $3 a package. But it's probably the best pack of instant noodles I've ever had. The noodles remained al dente (if you cook it for the recommended time of 7 minutes). The soup is complex for an instant mix, redolent of funky shrimp paste. I added some shrimp, squid, scallops, a tea egg (had some lying around), snow pea pods and bean sprouts.

I'm not an instant noodle person so I won't be a regular consumer of this product. But I have to admit I'll probably pick up a few packs for those lazy days.

  1. Found the 4 pack of Prima Taste in Laksa LaMien and also Curry. Both came in 4 packs. Both were 9.95 at two stores I went to. The selection at Kam Man Food on 200 Canal Street in Chinatown was astounding. (I also found the 4 pack of just the Laksa LaMien at Asia Market Corp on Mulberry Street. Asia Market Corp also had Indomie noodles which are rated very high). I now have an awesome 'go to' place that also has a bar area that serves hot food! I spoke to the manager and he was awesome. Thanks ChowHounds!!!!
