#408: Gomex 3 Mien Gomex 3 Miến Mì Tôm Chua Cay Hot Sour Shrimp Instant Noodles

So here’s the second of the Gomex noodles. I’ve never seen them other than the two I’ve rated – pretty interesting. They’re from Vietnam and sound interesting, so let’s give em’ a try…

Some powder and some seasoned oil – rather murky…

Oh yeah this one looks a little funky. Spicy and sour shrimp sounds good though.

It’s almost kind of sweet, but spicy and salty too. I don’t really detect a really shrimp-like flavor here. It’s edible but not great. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s a commercial for these…

…and here’s my 3 minute noodle timer I made. Just cover your Cup o Noodle and hit play. when it’s done – bam! You’ve got a cooked Cup o Noodles!

So here’s a brand I’ve never tried before. Gomex is produced by Viet Hung Food, another brand I’ve never heard of before. So I suppose its time to strap on the old noodle bowl and try this stuff.

Clockwise from top: veggies, seasoned oil, soup base.

From left to right: veggies, soup base powder and seasoned oil. The noodle block is of the preseasoned variety – could eat it like potato chips.

So I think the Tower of Power record’s warped enough so it’s time for a new one to sit atop a bowl while the noodles cook. Ole Bunk here should do quite nicely.

They’re really quite good. The veggies add a nice touch and it all comes together very nicely. I’m giving it 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Wow – what an awesome commercial that was! After eating these noodles, I went outside and jumped around for a while.

It’s my birthday tomorrow.
