I brought this packet of 'Perencah Mee Bandung' (Bandung Noodle Paste) from home. Well, I've never come across Mee Bandung before actually when I was in Malaysia, so I am not at all familiar with the taste, or perhaps I shall say, I didn't know what to expect out of it.
But I figured that it wouldn't be bad, so I gave it a try by following the suggested cooking methods on the packet:
The end product:
Hmmm, not too bad I'd say. I could taste dried shrimp out of it, and with chillies of course. But it was not spicy though. I had just googled 'Mee Bandung' on the internet, only to realise that it's a type of noodle that is more commonly found in the State of Johor (a state located on the Northen part of the Peninsular Malaysia). I think I'll try to look for this food if I ever have a chance to visit Johor next time. Otherwise I won't be able to tell the authenticity of this packet of perencah. But as far as a quick and quality meal is concerned, this packet is great. Will definitely bring more of this from home next time.
