[Non-halal] Old Shanghai scallion oil noodles, anyone?
The kind folks at Old Shanghai were kind enough to send us a sample of their handmade Scallion Oil Noodles.
Old Shanghai Scallion Oil Noodles
Cooking these noodles was a breeze: Just pop the noodles into boiling water and cook for 7 minutes.
Drain the water, and mix the noodles with the sauce and oil. Enjoy!
Old Shanghai Scallion Oil Noodles – made from 100% natural ingredients
Honestly, we didn’t have a high expectations – but we were pleasantly surprised.
As we like our noodles al-dente, the noodles had a nice, satisfying bite.
What makes the Scallion Oil Noodles interesting is that they are 100% handmade without any preservatives and artificial flavouring/colouring. In fact, each order takes about four to five days to prepare. Hence, we thought the whole ensemble was wholesome.
Fragrant premium soy sauce mix
What stood out immediately is the fragrant taste of the premium soy sauce in the sauce. The flavours were deep but not overpowering or artificial tasting, with a touch of sweetness from sugar, and savouriness from salt and spice powder.
The sauce blended well with the oil which was infused with ginger and green onion. Finally, the chilli gives a nice spicy kick (but not unbearably spicy), with added umami from fried shallots.
A good alternative to the usual instant noodles
Overall, we thought the noodle is a great healthy alternative to Indomie. We served ours with a sunny-side up (yums!) and leftover meat patty we have in the fridge.
Bonus: their packaging is really dope too!
