#1797: Wai Wai Instant Rice Vermicelli Crab Flavour

Here’s another one my sister got for me while up in Canada a couple of weeks ago! Thanks, Sue! I’ve been really hoping to try more rice vermicelli lately but been having trouble sourcing any from around here and hoping to find some manufacturer who might want me to review some of their stuff! The top ten rice noodles list this year was a lot of fun and definitely want to make it a yearly kind of thing! Anyways, let’s check out these crab flavored noodles from Thailand!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, put everything in a bowl. Add in 380ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The rice vermicelli.

A dual sachet of seasoning base and chilli powder.

The chilli powder atop the soup base.

A sachet of seasoned oil.

Has a very strong smell of garlic.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, chilli pepper strands and crab claw fish cake. The rice vermicelli hydrated alright, but was a little on the dry side. I cut them with kitchen scissors as usually to make them easier to eat. The broth is nice – has a spicy and sweet crab flavor and a nice garlic oiliness. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850100205032.
