OK, this is kinda weird but everyone in the family simply love this instant noodles. I would even dare to say that the boys are so addicted to these stuff that they can have this twice a day. We have once blogged about the Myojo Ramen Char Mee quite a couple of months back (see here).
You see, we could never get these noodles from the stores in Vancouver. We always have people bring over or send over them from Malaysia or Singapore. Well, no longer … Polly’s husband, Vincent has started importing them and is stocking them in Richmond.
Vincent decided to import these and other varieties of Myojo recently and the shipment just arrived three days ago. These are to test the consumer market here. So far, it’s looking good because they seem to be selling well. The other varieties in the store are Mee Poh (non spicy), Korean Kimchi Noodle, Vegetarian and Mee Goreng.
The store is selling a pack of 5 for 2.98 during this promotional period. After which, the retail price will be 3.50. I bought 2 boxes of the Myojo Ramen Char Mee. Each box contains 12 x 5 packs of noodles — that’s 120 individual packets of instant noodles! Trust me, 120 is not much and they will go very fast in our home!
The store which sells the Myojo instant noodles is Smart N Save located in Lansdowne Mall in Richmond. Smart N Save sells a variety of South East Asian food products. I was told by Vincent that this year, the store is giving out VIP discount card for purchases above $25. The VIP card entitles you for a $2 discount for every $25 purchase and valid until the end of this year.
As this shipment of Myojo noodles is for testing of the market, the store might not continue to import if the product is not selling well. But, I’m sure people will discover this great noodle in no time. In fact, Polly told me that after we left, an American came to the store and bought 2 boxes of Ramen Char Mee to bring back to US. He commented that the noodle is very good.
Anyway, Vincent also imported quite a few other food stuff from Malaysia. We bought a few of those too and will blog on them sometime next week.
