#1954: Koh Thai Island Of Flavours Spicy Thai Chicken Instant Noodles Soup

One of the last from James B. of the Netherlands – thanks again!Most of these Loh Thai varieties have been rather bland – although I think I did very much like the last one I tried. Let’s see what we have within!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, place the noodles in a bowl, add 400ml boiling water. Wait for 2-3 minutes, add the herbs, stir gently and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A dual sachet of oil and powder.

I detect a little sweetness in its scent.

A sesame scent in this one.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken, coriander and chilli paddi. The noodles are soft and have that nice comfort food gauge and chew. The broth. Well, it doesn’t have the slightest inkling of spiciness whatsoever, which is unfortunate. It’s like an upgraded chicken taste, due to the oil sachet giving it more body. Tasty stuff, but nothing I would consider to be ‘spicy chicken.’ 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8717662261022.

#1930: Koh Thai Island Of Flavours Lemongrass Instant Noodles Soup

Another one from James B. over in The Netherlands – thanks! I thought this one looked really interesting; it’s made in Singapore specifically for Koh Thai brand in The Netherlands. Let’s crack this one open!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains crustacean. To prepare, place the noodles in a bowl, add 400ml boiling water. Wait for 2-3 minutes, add the herbs, stir gently and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A dual sachet…

A powder base with some vegetable flecks.

A seasoned oil.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added barbeque pork. The noodles are pretty good – suck up a lot of the broth. But the broth. I’m trying. Really. Hard. This has not even the utterring of the first syllable of lemongrass in it’s flavor. What’s funny it that I detected the hint of lemongrass scent from the powder base, but in this broth, I don’t taste a lot more than maybe a slightly spicy take on a sesame noodle.  I’m particularly at odds with myself on this one as I found it actually to be quite tasty. Then again, if you bought tickets to see a baroque chamber music quartet play a piece of music at a university and then punch the address into your GPS and arrive at the Tacoma Done and it’s a Justin Bieber concert, you might be taken aback. 0.25 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8717662261060.

#1814: Koh Thai Island Of Flavours Tom Yum Instant Noodles Soup

Another one from James B. over in The Netherlands – thanks! I thought this one looked really interesting; it’s made in Singapore specifically for Koh Thai brand in The Netherlands. Let’s crack this one open!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains crustacean. To prepare, place the noodles in a bowl, add 400ml boiling water. Wait for 2-3 minutes, add the herbs, stir gently and enjoy!

The noodle block.

A dual sachet – soup base on the left and seasoned oil on the right.

A granular mixture.

Very orange.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, lime and white onion. The noodles are decent – standard gauge and comfort food kind of feel to them. The broth was a little confusing; I did get a hint of heat and some nice shrimp flavor, but the absence of lemongrass made it seem more like spicy shrimp than tom yum. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8717662261084.
