#1513: MAMA Instant Noodles Tom Yum Pork Flavour

Last night was my son’s teacher conference. I remember when I was a kid – I always dreaded these, knowing I’d probably get a lecture or something. Well, I am proud to say my son is doing absolutely wonderful in school this year. He’s had some problems in the past, but they look to have really gone by the wayside and I couldn’t be prouder of him. We love you, Andy – keep up the good work! You rock!

I also want to congratulate the San Francisco Giants for their third World Series win in five years. Unfortunately, that means a long, cold winter until baseball starts anew in spring.

I thought today would be a great day to have some Thai instant noodles. I recently did a Meet The Manufacturer with MAMA and had some varieties I wasn’t able to get to – this is one of them. Let’s pop ’em open and see what’s inside!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to contain pork powder. To prepare, put everything in a bowl. Add 300ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block – a little banged up but should be tasty!

A dual sachet of soup base on the left and sesame seeds on the right.

Soup base powder.

Sesame seeds!

An oil sachet.

Has a garlic scent.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Sauteed pork and sweet onion with a dash of soy sauce, thin sliced carrot, green onion and lime wedges. The noodles are good – thin gauge wheat noodles with a nice mouthfeel and character. The broth is spicy and citrussy like tom yum and has a stewed pork kind of hit to it as well which works very nicely. The sesame seeds are a spiffy little addition and a nice touch. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.EAN bar code 8850987128158.
