#1544: Thai Pavilion Pad Thai Instant Rice Noodles & Sauce

I believe my wife got me this one for Christmas last year – thanks sweetie! What’s so nice about instant noodles is that they have such a long shelf life, and so they can sit in my noodle hamper for a while before I have to get to them. Anyways, here’s one that sounds good today – Thai Pavilion Pad Thai. This one is made in Thailand but made for the US market. 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, take everything out of the box and empty noodles into the box. Add boiling water to cover the noodles and put the lid back on tightly for 5 minutes. Drain off water and add in contents of the sachets and stir well. Enjoy!

An included fork!

The seasoning sachet.

Has a sweet peanut scent.

An oil sachet.

Shallot oil.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprout, coriander and roast beef that were sauteed together. The noodles are broad and flat. I steeped them using the boiling water method and they could have used a minute or so longer. The flavoring was a bit off; they have the peanut hit, but then there’s this acidic and strange sweetness that both work against authenticity and my enjoyment. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 734492823006.
