This is the last packet of Lucky Me! sent by my friends from Dubai, thank you again Suri and Punica! I am ready to receive more packets now!
“Pancit Canton” means stir-fried noodles in Filipino and “Kalamansi” is a citrus fruit that’s ubiquitous in the Philippines!
Lucky Me! is the undisputed no. 1 instant noodle brand in the Philippines with a wide array of innovative and flavorful noodle varieties (according to their website). Launched in 1989, Lucky Me! has since grown into a household brand enjoyed by almost every Filipino family.
Again a tiny packet weighing just 60g against the standard 70-80g packs.
Cooking instructions as on the pack – cook noodles in briskly boiling water for 3 minutes. Mix Special seasoning, soy sauce and oil on a plate to form a paste. Drain noodles and place on the plate with the prepared sauce. Mix well. Enjoy!
Cute little noodle block.
Each sachet comes with a message –
- The sauce pouch reads – Due to temperature changes, sauce may have crystal-like salt particles which will melt in freshly cooked noodles.
- And the special seasoning sachet says – Seasoning may harden but dissolves when mixed with soy sauce and oil. Quality and taste remains the same.
- A very thin soy sauce.
- Seasoning oil which is coconut oil basically.
- Special seasoning powder which contains traces of cane sugar, chicken flavour, dehydrate veggies like carrots and chives and lastly and obviously – citrus flavour enhancers. And this has an extremely strong citrusy aroma!
I wasn’t too sold on lemon flavored instant noodles but I wasn’t too skeptical either because I liked the last two Lucky Me! flavors I tried.
However, this is a disaster. Should have known after smelling the seasoning! Way too citrusy and no other flavor at all.
Even the soy sauce was too thin to give it a good color. So here are bland looking noodles that taste like they have been drowned in lemon juice.
For once I am glad that a noodle pack was smaller than standard packs. Hate wasting noods.
