#307: Royal Umbrella Vegetarian Tom Yum Instant Cup Noodle

A cup noodle from Thailand that isn’t MAMA brand? Well, let’s give it a try. This company is better known for rice products.

Here’s the lid…

The only packet inside is hot chili paste.

So the seasoning is in the noodles as is the veggies.

The broth is salty with a nice light vegetable flavor and a little heat, and there’s a decent amount of veggies. I’m giving this one a 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. It’s okay but doesn’t have much of the citrus flavor I’m used to with a tom yum and just doesn’t captivate me.

#258: Royal Umbrella Tom Yum Shrimp Instant Cup Noodle

So here’s something new – Royal Umbrella. A cup noodle from Thailand – Tom Yum isn’t a surprise as far as the flavor.

I like how the lid says ‘please do not little.’

Chili paste; like Sriracha or a sambal.

Quite a lot of things going on here – veggies and the paste and some little shrimps.
