I’ve been whiling my time looking up and down aisles of instant noodles for a very long time. When I find out about a new Asian market nearby, I am exceedingly enthused about perusing their noodle varieties. But sometimes I’ll find something a little different. This is a rice porridge. It’s not a wheat noodle, rice noodle or thread. I like to review these every once in a while because I’m sure many of you have seen them and not known exactly what they’re all about. Let’s have a look at this MAMA JokCup and see what’s inside!
Detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains crustaceans. To prepare, open lid halfway and remove the spoon. Add boiling water to the fill line. Stir well and close lid for a minute. Open lid and stir thoroughly, then close lid for another minute. Open and stir one last time and enjoy!

An included spoon!
No sachet in the cup – a lot of granular rice and seasonings.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp and coriander. This is like a porridge, but it’s not as one would usually find here in the United States. It’s not a sugary sweet affair, however it is a little salty and has a nice seafood flavor to it., Nice and warm feeling to it. The included shrimp hydrated very well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 052066001842.
