As I mentioned in my previous post, most of our evening meals here in Brunei consist of rice or noodles. This is one of our favourites - and ridiculously quick and easy... and cheap too!
In the UK these packets of noodles are only a step up from the naffness of Pot Noodles... but here they LOVE them! Every supermarket has an entire aisle devoted to noodles in general, about half of which will be these pre-packed ones.
This is a brand we particularly like. A pack of 5 packets costs $1.40.
We can't read the instructions, but the pictures are helpful!
What seems to make these particularly nice are the 5 sachets that come in the pack, to be stirred into the cooked drained noodles:
Seasoned oil, chili sauce and thick syrupy soy sauce...
Plus crispy fried onions and seasoning (probably full of monosodium glutamate, but very tasty!)
Just a bowl of these noodles with no accompaniments is a satisfying lunch or light supper, but last night we topped them with a fried egg, and served them with some garlicky, gingery beans and baby corn, and it was a really delicious meal.
