#172: MAMA Oriental Style Instant Flat Noodles (Tom Yam)

So I asked Kit to pick out two packs of noodles for me to try next. Here’s the first one. I’m curious whether it’ll be any good; the MAMA brand has reviews on here from 1 to 4 stars so we’ll just have to see. By the way, on the back in two places it says tom yum instead of tom yam like it does on the front. I’m going to go with tom yum being correct and the yam being a typo.

Chili powder, soup base and flavored oil.

The oil was interesting on this one to be sure – very light in color.

The soup is almost cryptic; I used half the chili powder and its still got a nice heat. The oil adds a bit of interesting oomph to it and the base dissolved almost completely. I have a sore throat and this is pretty nice so far. Not a lot of vegetable action here… Anyways, this is rather unique and enjoyable. I’m giving it 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.
