#1731: MAMA Instant Noodles Shrimp Creamy Tom Yum Flavour

Some of you are going to say ‘hey this is a re-review!’ But actually, it isn’t. This is the MAMA Shrimp Creamy Tom Yum for the Cambodian market! Yup – Cambodia. A lot of new countries lately which is awesome! I got these sent to me when I saw them during my visit to Thailand at the Thai President Foods European Agent Meeting in May! Let’s have a look at this one for the Cambodian market.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). I don’t see it on the package, but I’m guessing this contains shrimp. To prepare, add contents of package to a bowl. Add 300ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The dry soup base sachet.

Has a spicy and shrimp scent.

A liquid sachet.

Has a spicy scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, Thai chillies, mung bean sprouts, white onion and coriander. The noodles hydrated very nicely, with that trademark gauge and slight crumble that MAMA noodles always have. The broth is spectacular – brilliant looking and with a slightly sweet, spicy, lemongrassy, shrimpy, creamy balance that’s just superb. Love this stuff! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850987128301.

    This was my favorite instant ramen when I lived in the US! I found a reasonable substitute in Tokyo, but I do still miss the noodles in this brand, the difference was subtle but it was a welcome change.

    Definitely agree with your rating, though I pretty much always strain most if not all of the water before mixing in the seasonings, being a fan of kick-you-in-the-face flavors.

    Funny that you should post it now, I was just telling my girlfriend about this the other day. 🙂

    I never had the Mama shrimp creamy tom yum flavor before. But, I have had the regular shrimp tom yum flavor and I…..fell in love. I was wondering why they had a pleasant aftertaste, but I’m guessing that was the lemongrass. 🙂 I always add soy sauce to these to enhance their flavor. I love the spiciness of these noodles. I was surprised they had these Mama packages in Thai. I’m guessing some Cambodians speak it as a second language. LOL.

    Best ramen ever! I love the mix of acidity and spiciness. Here in Reunion except some Nissin products, it’s my favourite.
