Here’s another one we found at BigLots in Lynnwood, WA. So Pad Thai is as most folks probably already know, a Thai dish. This bowl is made in China and definitely for the US market. Let’s give it a whirl!
Detail from the cardboard outer packaging (click image to enlarge). Contains fish. To prepare, add in contents of vegetable, noodle and sauce sachets along with 2 tablespoons of water. Cover loosely with lid and microwave for 90 seconds. Let sit for an additional 50 seconds in the microwave. Stir well. Sprinkle with contents of peanuts sachet and enjoy!
An included fork!
The noodle pouch.
The large sauce sachet.
The vegetables sachet.
Has a nice scent.
The garnish sachet.
Crushed roasted peanuts.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, broccoli and mung bean sprouts. The noodles came out well enough – flat and thick with an udon kind of chew to them. The flavor. Folks, this is about as close to Pad Thai as a bacon double cheeseburger. The flavor is almost identical to a poorly executed sweet and sour sauce. The bits of vegetable were there but almost just for looks and the peanuts were the bowl’s only saving grace. 1.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 049696982863.
A great recipe for homemade Pad Thai!
