#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!

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.
