Yum Yum Green Curry Instant Noodle

Green Curry Instant Noodle 

After attending A Million Little Things in Strait Quay, I had a quick grocery shop at Sam's Grocery and the words 'Green Curry' caught my eyes. I know I shouldn't buy this kind of food but well I like to try new things you know. Honestly speaking for many people that live oversea, instant noodles indeed a drug to cure your craving for home town's food. Thus, not to surprise that there are many different flavours of instant noodles coming out in the market in these few years. 

The front package, flavours oil and seasoning


If you noticed the soup clearly, it was a bit creamy but not green. Yea, I was a bit disappointed with the colour. It is hard for me to describe the flavour as it didn't taste exact like green curry but when I burp, it's green curry. Maybe I should not put high expectation on this kind of food - it is just an instant noodle, isn't it? Similar things when white curry noodles were so popular in the market few years back, yet the taste still differs from the real one. Overall as I mention earlier, an instant noodle is just an instant cure for food craving. 



I just want to share some of the food information below. It is good to make a habit of reading what's your product made of, especially processed food such as instant noodle. You may be surprised on what you've read.

So, they use a lot of food stabiliser, artificial colouring, artificial flavouring( the very common ingredient in most of the processed food). Not suitable for vegetarian because they put fish sauce and shrimp but it is halal. 


I guess they didn't declare all the ingredients to make the noodles and seasoning, thus they have to stick another white sticker of  ingredient's description in order to export to certain countries that have strict food labelling law. 


Did I never pay attention to read the instant noodle nutrition information? Because it is so confusing to see 2 nutritional information panel side by side of each other. Seriously? I was trained in the university to read yet I think it really confuses people. 


Anyway, the message is - if you eat the whole package of noodles, no matter how little or more water you use to cook the noodles, it costs you 333 kcal and 1883 mg of sodium. Thus, it is true that processed food like instant noodles is usually high in sodium. Processed food is the major food that rise our sodium's intake in our diet where we should not consume more than 2300 mg of sodium per day for an adult. 

Note to share - salt and sodium are different. Salt do contain a certain amount of sodium but again we usually over consume sodium from processed food but not salt.

Cintan Mee Recipe ( Stir Fry Noodles ) 炒金旦面

Cintan Mee - The Ding Dong Mee


I love Cintan Mee so much, whether it is stir-fried with tomyam or soy sauce. I 'developed' this dish from an old kopitiam in my hometown which used to be famous of Cintan Mee. The shop was owned by an old couple but they closed the shop when I was in Year 5? Oh it was long time ago! Everyone miss their cintan mee. 
Thank god for gifted me such a good tongue and I made it!!! The taste is similar but the method of preparing is differ from the old couple. Also, I skip some ingredients to make it easy and simple. 

My sister loves it because she misses it so much as she was away from home for so many years. I remembered when I was in primary school and she came back from oversea, she will ask me to take away for her and she wanted it dry ( less sauce compare to the wet one). I could see she enjoys this dish so much whenever I cooked.



Sadly I don't have any photo of how was the noodles looked. I really miss it. So why I said my cooking method is diffe…

I would like to skip the comment about the sauce because nothing special and very light in taste. However, the flesh was indeed very fresh and heaps!!! We struggled to finish the whole fish because it was very huge and this dish came out last. I wonder why it came out last??? This dish should come out in the middle because it is good to go with rice...

Bee Hooi Cafe @ Pulau Tikus, Penang

What to eat at Bee Hooi Cafe/kopitiam? 
1. Char Hor Fan ( Flat-wide Rice Noodles with Gravy )
2. Chicken Porridge
3. Duck Egg Char Kuey Tiao ( Stir Fry Flat Rice Noodles with Duck Egg )


My first time here was just a coincident stop-by a random kopitiam to take away supper. There sells quite a selection of food even though not as variety as the food court of course. However you can find some good food here! Well, the best and my favourite is still the 'Char Hor Fan'!
Char Hor Fan I ordered the Char Hor Fan since I haven't eaten for awhile. I was so excited when I had the first spoon - the taste that I missed > The Authentic Taste! The sauce didn't overwhelm the flavour of stir fry noodles. You can still taste the wok taste and the noodle wasn't so oily too. The stall are owned by an old couple. I wish they could teach me how to cook this. RM5 for a plate of Char Hor Fun.

Not just the flat rice noodles, they also stir fry it with a little bit of vermicelli. Some people d…
