I have not been eating instant noodles for a while now for the simple reason that I am cutting down on the hidden sugars – after all, unless you add your own ingredients, it is all carbohydrates, salt, msg and whatever they have in the seasoning…and preservatives too, I suppose.
Besides, my missus have not stocked up on anything that is new so what we have in the house are those that I have reviewed before or those spicy Korean ones that do not tickle my fancy.
Well, it so happened that the other day, I spotted this one…
…so I decided to give it a try.
…before and there were some that I felt were not too bad but this one is probably new – I do not recall ever trying it before but yes, we had the ones from this made-in-Thailand brand and we loved it!!!
There are only four packets inside and inside each packet, there are the noodles and three sachets…
– the seasoning, the garnishing (dried ingredients) and the (tom yam) paste.
I cooked the noodles and served it with some sliced omelette and fish cake, cherry tomatoes and daun sup (Chinese celery) from our garden…
…and sat down to give it a try.
It was milder than the aforementioned one that we had before from Thailand, not that sour, not that fragrant and not that creamy and despite all those bits of cili padi among the dried ingredients, I did not feel that it was all that spicy.
All in all, I would say it was all right and especially when it is not too expensive, just RM1.45 a packet, this would be a good enough choice to keep in the house for emergencies when one feels hungry and there is not much else around to eat.
