Meet The Manufacturer: #2117: 7-Select Nissin Instant Noodles Shrimp Ma Nao Lui Suan Flavour King Cup

7-Eleven in Thailand was a fascinating place to visit last year. It’s different than what we have here insofar as there is a whole aisle of instant noodle varieties inside! I wish we had that here – it’d be so awesome! Lots of different brand partner with 7-Eleven there and have special flavors only available at 7-Eleven – kind of an exclusive. This one sounds interesting – really unsure about what it will be like – the manao sounds like lime perhaps, but aside from that… I do see shrimp! Hey! Let’s crack it open and delve into the mysteries within.

A lot of powder!

A solid ingredients sachet.

Looks like lots of shrimp and spring onion.

A smaller oil sachet.

Has a lime scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, shrimp, lime, fried garlic, coriander and red pepper flake. The noodles were pretty good – well hydrated with a pretty standard gauge it seems for this brand. The broth was interesting – like a strong lime with a spiciness and shrimp taste. I really liked the bits of shrimp in there – very nice. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8852528002491.

#1703: 7 Select Super Tom Yum Shrimp

Here’s one of the ones I picked up on my recent trip to Thailand at 7-11. It’s made by Nissin, and has Nissin logos on it, but it’s like a private label for 7-11; kind of different. Anyways, tom yum sounds good – let’s see what dwells within!

The seasoned noodle block.

A liquid sachet.

Has a strong tom yum scent.

Some of the seasoning from the noodles and little shrimp abound.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added red and orange bell pepper, white onion, shrimp and coriander. The noodles are round and thin. They have a little mushiness to them. The broth on the other hand has a very strong heat and lemongrass hit with a good shrimp flavor. The amount of shrimp that were included was pretty good, but I did expect them to be a little bigger. They hydrated perfectly. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8852528003092.

When I get to go to foreign countries, I’m usually more interested in trying the local cuisine. American BBQ flavor chips are about as far from my mind as can be, but this guy take you on a pretty good tour of a 7-11 in Thailand.
