As I mentioned yesterday, I was nominated by my sister to do the ALS ice bucket challenge – it’s the thing everyone is doing these days to bring awareness and donations for people with this debilitating condition. You have to have a bucket of ice dumped on you! Well, I did it with a little help from my pal Jason Warden – the video is at the bottom, so be sure to check it out and also have a look at www.ALSA.org and consider donating to help find a cure!
Today, it’s creamy tom yam! What I love about this Meet The Manufacture is the multitude of tom yam varieties. I get to have lots of fishball and seafood! I think all of the reviews I’ve done in recent months centering around Southeast Asia have really awakened my taste buds to how much I like the flavors of this region as well as seafood. I should mention that it looks like this is a variety made in Thailand for sale in Malaysia. Let’s check out this Ruski Creamy Tom Yam!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, you have two options. The steeping method: put everything in a bowl and add 400cc boiling water and cover three minutes, stir and enjoy. The cooking method: add noodles to 450cc boiling water and cook for three minutes. Add in seasonings, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The powder base sachet.
A light powder with fleck of herbs.
The tom yam paste sachet.
Smells like tom yam!
Ahh – a little added heat!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added fishball, shrimp, sliced squid, green nira, coriander, lime and BonCabe Level 15 chilli seasoning. The noodles are thin with just that right amount of crumble I like. The broth is so good! Has a very strong citrus flavor and a vibrant spiciness and a really good heartiness. This is really good – 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8852523208560.
Here’s a creamy shrimp variety of Ruski noodles!
Here’s me getting drenched with a big cooler that had 2 big bags of ice and was half full of water too – heavy! Really cold too!
