#1733: Bonasia Instant Noodles Beef Flavour

Here’s another one that was sent to me from Thailand by the Thai President Foods folks. This is made in the EU for the German market! I thought maybe I’d make my son some beef flavored instant noodles today – let’s have a look!

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add package contents to a bowl and add 320ml boiling water. Cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A dual sachet of soup base on the left and chilli powder on the right.

The chilli powder atop the soup base. I’m going to see what happens – not going to tell Andy there’s anything spicy in this one.

The oil sachet.

Has a beef scent to it.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added spring onion, white onion, beef and mung bean sprouts. The noodles had a good consistency and hydrated very nicely. The broth had a very nice beef taste and a good oiliness to it which gave it a reasonable homestyle kind of feel  to it. The chilli powder was a nice little touch and didn’t make it detectably spicy. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4316734068411.

#1732: Super Seafood Flavour Noodles

Here’s yet another I got last year at the Econsave in Butterowrth, Penang, Malaysia! I’d seen this Super brand before and had always wondered if I’d ever get some. Took travelling thousands of miles, but I got some! Let’s have a look at this Malaysian cup.

To prepare, add sachet contents to cup and add 326ml boiling water to fill line (talk about exact measurements). Cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

An included fork!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a light seafood scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprouts, kamaboko, shrimp, fish ball, white onion and coriander. The noodles were interesting; they hydrated very well and had a very light and soft texture – but not mushy. The broth was light and buttery – maybe a slight shrimp flavor. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888240100153.

#1731: Mama Instant Noodles Shrimp Creamy Tom Yum Flavour

Some of you are going to say ‘hey this is a re-review!’ But actually, it isn’t. This is the Mama Shrimp Creamy Tom Yum for the Cambodian market! Yup – Cambodia. A lot of new countries lately which is awesome! I got these sent to me when I saw them during my visit to Thailand at the Thai President Foods European Agent Meeting in May! Let’s have a look at this one for the Cambodian market.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). I don’t see it on the package, but I’m guessing this contains shrimp. To prepare, add contents of package to a bowl. Add 300ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The dry soup base sachet.

Has a spicy and shrimp scent.

A liquid sachet.

Has a spicy scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, Thai chillies, mung bean sprouts, white onion and coriander. The noodles hydrated very nicely, with that trademark gauge and slight crumble that Mama noodles always have. The broth is spectacular – brilliant looking and with a slightly sweet, spicy, lemongrassy, shrimpy, creamy balance that’s just superb. Love this stuff! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850987128301.
