`_001

It’s been a long time since I’ve had any chicken abalone flavored instant noodles – looks like 400-450 reviews ago. I’ll be honest – I’ve never had real abalone before, so I can’t say as to an instant’s authenticity to abalone flavor, although I can definitely say whether I like it or not. Let’s crack this pack open and have a look inside.

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains fish and crustacean. To prepare, add noodle block to 450ml boiling water and cook 2-3 minutes. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!

Meet The Manufacturer: #1880: Myojo Thai Tom Yam Flavour

It’s only logical that since Singapore is only a stone’s throw from Thailand that Thai flavors would be popular there. Tom yam soup is a tasty melange of lemongrass, spiciness and shrimp all coalescing into a harmonious symphony of wonder and amazement. I’m curious how this tom yam from Singapore differs from varieties from Malaysia just to the north and Thailand north of there. Let’s take a look!
