#689: Namchow Mee Jang Noodle Soup Sour Spicy Shrimp (Tom Yum)

Here’s the first review I’m doing with my new camera! No more Blackberry 8900 camera – now I’ll be using a Sony Cybershot 14.1MP! Should look better now, hopefully! Today I decided to dig out this bowl – it’s one my wife got for me for my birthday at Uwajimaya. Let’s give it a looksie!

Here’s the noodle block in the bowl. I’m going to use a new bowl today but I’ll use this one to cook them!

Dry seasonings packet.

…and the contents!

Liquid seasoning paste.

Had a very citrus odor – fitting for a Tom Yum.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Notice the new bowl? My mother in law got that for me at the 99 Ranch Market in Pleasanton, California this last week! Thank you! Added one fried egg and sprinkled a little Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt on top and added a smattering of Bird’s Eye Stir Fry vegetables. The noodles are pretty standard noodle bowl noodles and  nothing remarkable. The broth was disappointing; spicy but not flavorful enough. When I slurped the broth at the end I tasted a lot of heat and very little flavor. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 684431000732 – get the shrimp tom yum variety here.
