For instant noodles aficionados seeking variety from Samyang and Maggi, you will be pleased to hear that you can now buy uni (sea urchin) flavoured instant noodles in Singapore!

Unfortunately, these noodles contain only 6.9% of real sea urchin, which is combined with other ingredients to recreate an authentic uni flavour. The broth is a white-cream based, with uni slices and butter-flavoured paste enhancing the soup’s creamy taste. Diced broccoli are provided as well to inject crunch into the noodles.
If you want to enjoy a taste of uni on a low-SES budget, this noodles are a great option to consider.

Meidi-Ya at Liang Court boasts a dizzying array of unique Japan imports, and another rare find within its premises is the Coco-Ichibanya Curry Udon ($3.50). Collaborating with manufacturer Acecook in recreating their signature curry flavour, the curry udon contains ingredients such as curry powder, pork extract, leek and shimeji mushroom. Yuzu is also added for a touch of citrusy sweetness in the curry. Owing to the thickness of the udon strands, the curry udon requires a slightly longer cooking time of five minutes.

Another flavour you can enjoy is the Coco Ichibanya Curry Soba ($3.50) as well. The soba noodles are thinner and are accompanied by a mix of ingredients such as yam, egg, onion, garlic and bean curd!
