Here’s one I found at the 7-11 next to our hotel when we visit Thai President Foods in Bangkok back in May! I think the first time I tried a tom yum flavored instant, I didn’t like it. Through the years, I’ve gained a serious love for the flavor – the chilli, the shrimp, the lemongrass. It all comes together so well and the place where I had some of the best of course was in Thailand. Really hope to return someday with my sons and have them try all the amazing foods there! Anyways, let’s check out this cup!

The noodle block.
A dual sachet: powder on the left and paste on the right.
A granular powder.
A deep colored paste.
The vegetable and shrimp sachet.
A nice little mix.
Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles hydrated most of the way in the two minutes of steeping, but really ended up kind of crumbly – more so than I like. The broth very good and hit all the marks I like in a tom yum. The shrimp was very nice and bits of vegetable were also top notch. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850100005137.
