#2257: Fuku Tom Yum Soup Instant Noodle

This one sounds really good. I really like tom yum and this looks like it’ll be good – I’ve liked most of the Fuku products I’ve tried so far and hoping this will be a continuation of that trend! Let’s dig in!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains crustaceans, chicken and fish. To prepare, add noodles to 350ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add contents of soup base sachet. Stir and enjoy!

The soup base sachet.

A granular powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, Dodo fishballs and a little chilli flake. The noodles are the nice ones as usual with that kind of chicken and sesame taste. The broth has a tom yum kind of flavor to it; lemongrass and heat. The thing is that I don’t think sesame and tom yum goes together all that well and it leaves my taste buds a little confused and wishing I had two separate dishes to taste. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 4897878650057.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added sous vide chicken (immersion cooked at 146 degrees Fahrenheit for two hours) seasoned with Lindberg-Snider seasoning. The noodles hydrated nicely and have a good texture – the three minutes allotted gives them body and a soft chew. The broth has a nice chicken and sesame taste which works well with the noodles. Finally, the corn and seaweed hydrated very well, but the chicken had a slight toughness to it still which resolved during the meal. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878650095.

#2139: Fuku Superior Soup Instant Noodle (Made In Thailand)

Here’s a special one sent by Apple Daily news of Hong Kong. They asked if I’d do a comparison between this, the Thai version and the Vietnamese version of the Fuku Superior Soup for a special news story. Now these are both made in different places, but they’re for the Hong Kong market. anyways I figured hey – why not? This sounds interesting – let’s take a look!

Added spring onion in the shape of a letter ‘T.’ The noodles in this one have a nice gauge but are on the softer side; not a bad thing, but a little more chewiness would have been nice.
