Cheese Instant Noodle hit Malaysia shelves

Robert's Google+

Ottogi Cheese Instant noodle is the new trend in Malaysia's instant noodle hunting

You may not believe the fact that Ottogi is South Korea most successful instant noodle brand on par with Samyang(Thank Wikipedia). This Instant noodle has been in Malaysia market for quite sometimes without anyone noticing. You should start going to nearest supermarket and gaze on the shelve for any of these left. Since everyone is giving all the credits to Samyang hot and spicy instant noodle, somebody should give one or two reviews on Ottogi Cheese Instant noodle.

Samyang hot and spicy noodle is too much to bear even for those who are seasoned spicy food consumers. Since we do not want to disappointed all the Oppa or Unni at Korea, we must at least buy Korean products in order to showcase our love to Kpop. The least thing we can afford to do is buy their not-so-overpriced instant noodle.

Imported instant noodle always start as low as RM15 to as high as RM30 for 4 or 5 packs. I bought 4 packs of Ottogi Instant noodle for RM18.00. Estimates RM4.50 per pack. I am not from a rich background but if we were to watch nice Korean drama and Korean movie on internet without spending a dime is enough to justify my spending spree on Korean Instant noodle. I am just redeeming my misbehavior.

The taste of Ottogi Cheese is to be simplified as a combination of original Korean instant noodle soup with added Cheese flavored powder. Have you notice one of the pictures in the collage with so much powder in it ? That is the cheese powder

Ottogi Cheese Ramyeon is imported by Tian An Trading Sdn Bhd located at Subang Jaya, Selangor.

Maggi Curry and Tomyam Flavor Kahwin

Marriage of Maggi Tomyam and Maggi Curry. New flavor emerged 

Maggi Tomyam and Curry Kahwin

The taste of Tom Yam flavor is incredible couple with Maggi Curry flavor spicy delicious it will create magnificent instant noodle soup.

This idea is contribute by Maggi Malaysia. Encouraging instant noodle and Maggi supporters to try "Kahwin" two types of one favorite flavor. I would choose curry and tom yam although I like all Maggi instant noodle flavors.

Maggi rolled out few new flavor and brand new noodle. Penang White Curry and braised beef flavors. I have tried both of it. You may see both review at

  1. Maggi Royale Penang Curry Flavor 
  2. Spicy Braised Beef Flavor

Besides, Maggi seem to have re-introduced new packaging and a bigger packaging in the year 2014. A bigger version of Maggi instant noodle for man who like bigger portion of Maggi instant noodle. Check out the image of amazing Maggi Big package at Maggi New Big packaging

Maggi Introduces New Flavor in Malaysia 2014

Maggi Royale Korean Spicy Braised Beef. Royalicious !!

Maggi Royale Korean Spicy Braised Beef

I believe Maggi introduces this flavor in November 2014. There were heavy advertisements on Youtube, social media platforms and various websites showing the banners of new Maggi flavor in Malaysia.

Maggi Royale noodle has been upgraded and its first flavor using Maggi Royale noodle was the Maggi Penang Seafood Curry flavor. I have tried both and the result is fascinating. I thought there was no instant noodle company could match the noodle quality of Mamee. But, it seem like Mamee met a strong competitor in instant noodle business.

Besides that, I have tried this new flavor. Servay at Kota Kinabalu seem to have this new flavor in its shelves. Do note that the selling price is RM7 plus. What's more, there were only 4 packs of maggi Royale Korean Spicy Braised Beef in a bundle. 

The taste was fantastic. It was spicy and the noodle was slightly bigger. Reminder to all that should you try this you must add some more water in order to reduce spicy soup. I think this is one of it kind in Malaysia. Maggi could be the first instant noodle company in Malaysia to introduces beef flavor.

Maggi Korean Spicy Beef Flavor

The above image is lacking of hot water. I was eating one pack only . I usually boils water and put the noodle inside then, I will prepare another water making sure will not drink the boiled water used to cook the instant noodle. People said, it contains some kind of lax or preservative in order to sustain noodle expiry date.

Review Maggi Royale Penang Seafood Curry Flavor

The most advertised Maggi instant noodle flavor in Malaysia 2014

Maggi Royale Penang Seafood Curry Malaysia

They get it what Malaysian like to eat. Penang curry flavor instant noodle grows like a mushroom in a rain. Maggi, one of the oldest, top and most recognized instant noodle brand in Malaysia introduced not-so-surprised "Penang Seafood Curry flavor"

Everything has a beginning they could have get the inspiration from Mykuali Penang White Curry noodle. It was not saying they copy it from them but Mykuali in my opnion could be one of the pioneer in this flavor. Reminiscing the desire to taste what it like Penang curry flavor because not everyone has traveled to Penang and eat it iconic food.

Besides, unlike the common packaging by Maggi which is always 5 x 75g, they adopted the same packaging as Mykuali to use only 4 x91g instead. You would notice it slightly larger in size but the quantity has been reduced to 4 packets only.

I do not know you guys appetite but I had cooked two packets in order to satisfy my hungry. In this case, I would think twice to have two packets because they has increased 20 grams than normal 75g per packet.

Generally, I would say Maggi does have greater taste. Previously, they rolled out the Maggi goreng flavor, one of the best could outperform any other Maggi goreng in Malaysia. Now, they took initiative to get people buying their new flavor which is Penang Seafood curry flavor I guess to compete and retains some market share in instant noodle business. It worth to mention that they seem to have upgraded its instant noodle quality. It called "Maggi Royale" What a blessing day indeed !!

You will regret if you did not try this. As for the price for one big packet contains 4, it sells over RM7 definitely. I bought it at RM 7.99. It has been launched several months ago now it reached to East Malaysia where I have enjoyed it myself.

Mass marketing their Mi Sedaap Curry although this is not a new product by them. Mi Sedaap Curry has been introduced in Malaysia instant noodle market for 2 years and counting. Mentioning about Mi Sedaap it always reminding us the legendary Mi Sedaap with black soy sauce with crispy fried shallot, Mi Sedaap Goreng.


Undeniable fact that the Maggi Big Curry flavor will be put into a picture with Mi Sedaap Curry. Which one is the Malaysian best choice ? . Maggi Big Curry adopted a repackaging but it still using the old curry powder. The obvious difference between them is the price. The well known Maggi brand will be slightly expensive due to it branding power.

Noticing that Mi Sedaap contains 3 powder packs comparing to Maggi Big Curry it only containing one powder pack. If memory serves me right, it should be right about Maggi Big Curry.

As you can see at the street board, it is an expensive marketing campaign taken by Wingsfood Mi Sedaap initiative to bring awareness to the Malaysian market. Will Mi Sedaap Curry dethrones Maggi Curry reclaim top 1 spot in Malaysia instant noodle business ?? Well, That will be Malaysian's choice to decide !

However, Maggi Big Curry competitive edge and advantage is their ambassador top 1 Malaysia 's male celebrity Aaron Aziz. More information about Maggi Big Curry with Aaron Aziz as ambassador at Maggi Curry Big and Aaron Aziz .

Their Mi Sedaap Malaysia Facebook page has more than 500,000 followers. It reflected how successful this brand doing in Malaysia. In case you do not know, Mi Sedaap is much more cheaper !! There were two flavor of Mi Sedaap fried instant noodle in the market. One is red packaging, another is is white packaging

Maggi instant noodle is truly delicious. Maggi instant noodle is the oldest brand in Malaysia. Everyone know this brand. Just ask any random guy at the street throw a question " What are the instant noodle brand pop up in your mind now " the top 3 answers from that guy should include " Maggi ". It is a very valuable company due to the popularity. Maggi instant noodle cater all kinds of flavor. That is the Maggi strength over competitor. The flavor of Maggi included Asam Laksa, Tomyam, Ayam, Kari, Mi Goreng.

Maggi instant noodle and crunchy fried shallot is the best and able to stand against Mi Sedaap. I would rank Maggi Mi Goreng the best among all Fried Instant noodle available in Malaysia. It simply undeniable delicious. Once you try, you never get enough of it.

Penang White Curry Instant Noodle

Instant noodle fans should try this Penang white curry flavor by Mykuali  

Penang White Curry

  • Calories : 540 Kcal 
  • Net Weight : 110g
  • Status         : Halal
  • Manufacturer : Sky Thomas Food Industries

It really weird that this instant noodle net weight is 110g. The net weight is slightly higher than any ordinary instant noodle. As for calories, increasing net weight will resulting increasing calories. Normal Maggi or Mamee instant noodle only 300-350 KCAL with 70g net weight.  Just for your reminder a healthy person eat only 2000 KCAL a day.

Do the instant noodle maker need to put "Penang" ? I mean the best food in the world do not need to address like that You don say Nagasaki Sushi or Ohio Pizza or Beijing Burger.  I think this instant noodle maker get inspiration from Hai Nan Chicken rice . If you get what I mean !

So this instant noodle maker when was thinking about the title, wanted to expose to the people the secret recipe from Penang ? Just for your knowledge, Penang is one of the state in Malaysia. I don see it coming from Penang because food and beverage there are quite affordable and cheaper than other states in Malaysia. However, it did not apply to Penang White Curry Instant Noodle. It costs our dear pocket about RM6.99.  

Yeah it RM6.99 with 4 packs. I did not say it incorrectly it just 4 packs with the price RM6.99. If you buy at East Malaysia, let say Sabah the price probably will be at RM 7.99. Nevertheless, Who care about the price if the food are great ?

It is delicious to eat excluding the smell side it did not smell like delicious ! The first time I tasted it I was like could not get enough of it. There were only 3 packs left. I just could not stop complaining about that. In a normal instant noodle packs it should be five packs how could they just sell it for 4 packs only ??

Even the Indonesia based instant noodle maker "Mee Sedaap" They sell with lower price at RM3.00 - RM3.50 came with 5 packs. Mee Sedaap is one of the best instant noodle ever. It reasonable they are selling at the price level because their brand is not quite well known and established compared brand such as Mamee and Maggi

 If I am a boss of any food and beverage company, I will definitely make another Penang white curry instant noodle but cheaper. Same flavor and taste but lower price. It will be sell really fast . My idea is brilliant right ?? My idea is simple. New Brand low price to penetrate market easily. That the reason why China is second largest economy in the world. They think really hard to make their product affordable and even cheapest among other same products.

Penang White Curry and it powder
It really strange that one of the ingredient pack contained a white powder. It looked like dangerous and poisonous drug powder. I may be wrong ! It could be a normal white powder to turn red curry into white curry . It is tricky ! 

I could not stop nagging which to buy Penang White Curry or Mamee Chef. Both of them are made by local food and beverage companies. Got to support local products right ? I will definitely want to try again the Penang White Curry instant noodle but the quantity and price are not reasonable it could become one of the factor affecting my decision making in buying more and more Penang White Curry instant noodle. Mamee and Maggi are well established company with recognized brand. Will you choose brand over taste ? The thing is that Mamee and Maggi instant noodle are cheaper compared to MyKuali's Penang White Curry .

Overall, Penang White Curry taste and flavor side could stand against Mamee Chef Curry or Maggi Curry.

New Maggi Big Ayam and Kari 2014

Robert's Google+

Maggi is introducing new package to Malaysian instant noodle fans . Much more bigger.

New and old maggi package 2014

Just how big is this Maggi big ?? It is 101 grams with 447 kcal or 1878 KJ. It is bigger than the normal Maggi package we have been consuming ! Just for your reminder that normal maggi package contained 78 grams with 348 kcal only

Temptation to buy Maggi big ayam and Maggi big kari is big because the ambassador of Maggi is renowned and well known actor Aaron Aziz. The way he is eating the Maggi instant noodle curry flavor is so delicious. I can smell it from my screen. I just don want watching him eating I want experience it too !

The truth is that the original Maggi kari and ayam flavors are not being changed. It is still the same old flavor however the package is slightly modified to looked like bigger more content.

New Maggi Big ayam RM 5.99 2014
RM 5.99 for 5 Maggi Big Ayam

I have noticed not only the package had changed, the price is increased to RM 5.99 in local store. I am wondering what are the price in supermarket because usually bigger store selling cheaper. Maggi is a big brand and their instant noodle is RM 1 expensive than other instant noodle brand.

New Maggi Big kari RM 5.99 2014

I have eaten numerous instant noodles from Maggi or other brands but the tasty one that can close close to compete with Maggi would be "Mamee" and "Mee sedaap". Mamee instant noodle newest rolled out Mamee Chef is super creative and tasty !  I want to stay at Maggi side since this is about Maggi !

Maggi is so popular in Malaysia sometimes we referred instant noodles as Maggi instead. That how powerful Maggi brand in Malaysia. One is not a Malaysian if you asked about "What are the top 3 instant noodles brand you have eaten"  his/her answers should have Maggi, if it does not he/she is not original Malaysian

Hey !! I got a suggestion since we have so many foreigner in malaysia, to test the original Malaysian, we ask them the question above !

When Aaron Aziz become Maggi ambassador, it made Maggi an instant noodle for gangsters because Aaron Aziz always starring and made appearance on gangsters movies ! Maggi is so gangster with Aaron Aziz ! You are not a true gangster if you had not eaten Maggi !  

10 Delicious Instant Noodles in Malaysia

Robert's Google+

Let talk about the taste of Instant Noodles and forget about the nutrition part. It is serious matter pick either taste or nutrition. 

Those who advocates instant noodles is bad for heath is like saying coca-cola is bad for health. Against instant noodles is very much saying don drink soda drinks such as coca-cola and Pepsi. Yet, coca-cola is biggest beverage company in the world. Feeding hungry stomach beyond boundary. Instant noodles like Maggi used to support disaster-hit countries by giving out worth thousands ringgit Maggi instant noodle packs for their daily staples. However, nutrition part of instant noodles is fairly right but who can against the taste of instant noodles available in Malaysia ? Can you resist coca-cola ? LMAO

Maggi and Mamee instant noodle malaysia

Maggi and Mamee brand is top choice. Do you eat them ? There are 4 different Mamee flavor and 2 different Maggi flavor. Mamee instant noodle has distinctive quality of noodle. As for Maggi instant noodle, it might be the most well known instant noodle brand among Malaysian. Well, Maggi got Aaron Aziz as brand ambassador boosting overall brand popularity.

We always thought that maggi is Malaysian company but in fact, it is so wrong. It is found at Switzerland it founder is Julius Maggi.

Mamee in the other hand, it is a registered company in Malacca. Distributing Mister Potato, Mamee Monster and also the Mamee noodles. Found on 1971 by Datuk Pang Chin Hin.

 Which flavor you like the most ? Ayam, vegetable, itik, tomyam, kari, and Maggi's ayam flavor ??

Maggi and Mamee instant noodle malaysia

I think Maggi introduces Mi goreng on 2013? It is the tastiest mi goreng flavor ever. Although you might say mee sedaap's mi goreng is the best, I eat both of them I still pick Maggi's mi goreng plus kari flavor.
