Meet The Manufacturer: #1465: Thai Chef Shrimp “Tom Yum” Instant Nudelsuppe

We’ll start the Thai President Foods Meet The Manufacturer off with one of their export products – Thai Chef –  sold in northern Europe. Looks like this one would do well in Germany with all the German writing on it. I’ve seen quite a few Thai companies making varieties for northern Europe – kind of a surprise, but in a way not really. Seafood is quite popular there and so this is kind of a twist on what they’re used to there I suppose. Excited to try this new one – let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block and sachet contents to a bowl and add 300ml boiling water. Cover for 3 minutes, stir, and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Granular with little flecks.

The paste sachet.

Has a tom yum scent.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, squid ball, shrimp, lime, green nira (garlic chives) and coriander). The noodles are thin with a nice crumble to them. They slurp up enough water and then don’t gorge any further – kind of a mystery but a great one! The broth is exactly what you would expect from shrimp tom yum – citrus, heat and a shrimp taste. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8852523206153.
