This is one of Nissin Japan’s ethnic series – this one being Thai in origin, they also have a Singaporean Laksa and an Indonesian Mi Goreng. This one looks a lot like the Nissin Cup Noodles that come from Thailand – usually there’s the guys from Manchester United on there as well. Let’s have a look inside and see what’s what.

The noodle block.
The front and back of the sachet. The sachet was on top of the lid.
Spicy tom yum paste.
Some of the loose ingredients from the inside – and the largest dehydrated shrimp I’ve seen in all my years of reviewing instant noodles.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added ito togarashi, lime and coriander. The noodles have that nice thin and flat character most of the Cup Noodle(s) varieties I’ve had have. The broth is definitely tom yum; all the kids come out and play – lemongrass, shrimp and spicy notes coalesce and create the theme. As for the supplied garnish, the shrimp is top notch in size and quality – good chew and flavor. The slices of mushroom were good as well. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105222775.
