Wow – 1,500 reviews! 1,500 different varieties of instant noodles! What’s even more crazy is that I don’t even feel like I’ve scratched the surface of the world of instant noodles; there are always new varieties coming out, and I think there’s never going to be a day when I’ve tried every variety. Which is a good thing because I really enjoy reviewing these things! Today’s review is a special one. I usually try to pick one that’s a little more interesting than others – and this one is very unique. Usually, companies either send me samples, readers donate varieties I’ve not tried, or I just go to a store and buy them. This is one of the first ones I’ve received directly from a company – literally handed to me. Not only that, I brought it all the way back here from Penang, Malaysia! That’s a long way! I think it was more than 16,000 miles round trip! I’d like to thank everyone who has supported and enjoyed The Ramen Rater throughout the years – without your support and readership, well, it’d be pretty quiet around here! Anyways, let’s check out this new Tom Yum variety from MyKuali! On with number 1,500!!!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains crustaceans. To prepare, add noodles to 350ml boiling water for 3 minutes. Add sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
The powder seasoning sachet.
Has a seafood scent.
The heart of MyKuali’s varieties: the paste sachet.
Smells like tom yum to me!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added red chilli paddi, fried fishball, prawns, lime and coriander. The noodles are just as always – nice gauge that has a great chewiness and quantity – just right. The broth – wow. It definitely has that full on flavor I experienced in Langkawi. The broth is not only strong but it’s got a thickness to it, and has that kind of aroma and consistency of a broth that’s been stewing all day long. Strong spicy heat, lemongrass and shrimp notes play throughout. This is spectacular; hands down best tom yum instant noodle I’ve ever had – and I’ve had quite a few. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555655005227.

Here’s a radio interview I did way back in 2011 – I know it’s only 3 years, but when I did this interview I’d only reviewed a little over 300 varieties. It’s kind of weird to listen to!
