Penang-based MyKuali brand White Curry instant noodles have consistently topped global instant noodle rankings, shoulder-to-shoulder with the likes of Korea’s Shin Ramyun and Indonesia’s Indomie.
Now NY Mag has ranked it #1 Soupy Instant Noodles again, as judged by chefs and food writers.
The Strategiest is NY Mag’s product-specific online publication. In this article, they rank instant noodles based under the category of Best Soupy Instant Noodles, Best Saucy (Dry) Instant Noodles, and Best Spicy Noodles.
To judge the noodles, they spoke to American food writers and chefs on their top choices.
MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodles was nominated by Lucas Kwan Peterson, a food writer for the Los Angeles Times, whose comprehensive “Official Instant Ramen Power Rankings” published in 2019 took Asia by storm as Asian instant noodles dominated top spots. (Although in the 2019 ranking, he listed the MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodles at #2 after Indomie Barbecue Chicken.)
In my experience, you can’t go wrong with instant noodles from MyKuali. I like the white Penang curry MyKuali.Lucas Kwan Peterson to The Strategist
He also mentions that MyKuali noodles are easy to find online and at large chain-stores: In fact, according to The Strategist website, the Penang White Curry noodles are available at Walmart at $15 (around RM60) for a pack of 4. (This is quite ironic considering that it’s rather hard to find locally.)
MyKuali Penang White Curry noodles are the only Malaysian instant noodles to make the list.
As for the Best Saucy (Dry) Noodles, Indomie Mi Goreng flavour takes the top spot– but we already know of Indomie’s supremacy, don’t we?
