Just when you thought that Irvin’s dangerously addictive salted egg yolk snacks couldn’t get any more ubiquitous, the homegrown snack maker has partnered with Japanese ramen brand Nissin to release a new addiction in the form of Salted Egg Instant Noodles ($2.95).
Already proving to be a hit across households in Singapore, the explosive, packaged food is easily recognizable as it bears the same ubiquitous yellow and black packaging, complete with the beady-eyed, black bird logo.
Preparation is straightforward:
- Boil the noodles in hot water and drain
- Add Irvin’s salted egg flavour seasoning powder, chili oil, and garnish
- Mix well and top off with egg crumbs
Mixing the noodles, you can already smell the distinct aroma of salted egg yolk goodness. Even for non-salted egg yolk fans like myself, the flavours are pretty well-balanced, and the salted egg yolk powder does not overpower the noodles. The chili oil even helps to add a mild kick to the dish! The noodle strands themselves are bouncy and chewy.
Irvin’s Salted Egg Yolk Instant Noodles are available on its online store, as well as Shopee and various Fairprice outlets. At $2.95 a pop, the noodles are reasonably priced and one of the better instant food combinations around!
