#1767: MAMA Instant Noodles Shrimp Tom Yum Flavour

Here’s one that should be familiar to instant noodle fans from almost everywhere, and especially those from Cambodia! This one is made specifically for the Cambodian marketplace. I got this sent to me after seeing it at the 2015 TF Eurpean Agent meeting I was invited to check out earlier this year in Bangkok, Thailand! Curious to see if it’s different than the one sold here in the US. Let’s find out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add contents of package to a bowl and add 360ml boiling water. Cover and steep for 3-5 minutes. Uncover and stir. Enjoy!

The dry soup paste sachet.

Has a nice scent to it.

A paste sachet.

Has a spicy and citrus scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added mung bean sprouts, shrimp, Fresno peppers, coriander and white onion. The noodles had a good texture and the quantity was nice as well. The broth seemed slightly lighter than the Us version I’m used to getting here, but aside from that it seemed pretty spot on. Good stuff! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8850987101021.
