According to the writer and taster, Mr Hans Lienesch, he described the Prima Taste Laksa LaMian as such: “The flavours of coconut, spicy chilli and seafood intertwine to bring something very special. The broth is amazing – downright hearty stuff! It makes me think of a broth that is homemade and has been cooking all day to reach perfection. This is a supreme accomplishment in the world of instant noodles and as with the Singapore Curry LaMian, a true game-changer for the industry.”

On the texture of the noodles, he said, “The noodles are of very nice quality and nicely chewy. This stuff is wonderful; it has a real gourmet feel to it! I definitely have never seen this kind of thing in any instant noodle I’ve tried before.”

Prima Taste Laksa LaMian and Prima Taste Curry LaMian were developed in 2011 and 2012 respectively under Prima Taste’s Easy Gourmet Indulgence series (Halal certified).
