Finished (click to enlarge). Added coriander, shrimp and chilli flake. The noodles are the standard Cup Noodles variety found in the USA products. They are a little thicker and chewier than their Japanese counterparts. The broth? It has a nice lime and shrimp taste with a lick of spiciness. The included bits were decent – and while I would’ve loved to see a zillion more of the shrimp, I would say that they’re pretty good. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662031025.
