Second best…

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.

I have tried a few flavours from this brand

…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.

  1. When I see “Tom Yam Thai”, it gives me the impression that it must sour, hot and spicy. For that matter, immediately I will give it a pass. Yours does look good with all the extra add-on ingredients.

    The ladies in the house will go for these exotic flavours. This one is rather watered down for real tom yam lovers, not so sour, not so creamy and not so hot and spicy but no, it still did not get me excited. The instant Kuching laksa I tried that day was a lot nicer…but unfortunately, also a lot more expensive.

  2. You are so diligently in cooking the noodles and adding your ingredients to get a bowl of yummy noodle breakfast. For me, the most is I will crack an egg or dump in some greens if available.

    I do that too most of the time, just add an egg but when I am blogging about it, I try to make it look a bit more presentable.

  3. I know this brand Mamee, but I have only tried Maggi’s tom yum.
    Not bad, oh yes, I have also tried Coca (from Singapore) too.

    I quite enjoy xiao long bao, do you guys have Din Tai Fung in Sibu?
    Theirs are good but over priced.

    1. Thank goodness we do not have Din Tai Fung here! I never go for those franchises, not just over-priced, overrated too – not really that good, if you ask me!!!
      Maggi’s quite popular, it seems. Many Youtube videos on theirs – their curry is very popular, it seems.

  4. Yes, all of those processed and packaged foods are full of hidden nasties.

    Best eaten sparingly, once in a blue moon…not all the time. Unfortunately, this is the staple of many young people, students especially.
