#1367: Sawadee Instant Noodles Vegetable & Mushroom Flavour

Here’s one that is made in one country for sale in another. This is made in Malaysia, but most easily found in the UK.  Anyways, let’s check this one out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but have a look for yourself. To prepare, boil 250ml water. Put the noodle block and seasoning sachet content in a bowl and cover with boiling water and a lid. After 4 minutes, open it up and stir. Enjoy! Alternatively, you can just boil 250ml water in a pot then take it off the heat and add the contents and put a lid on it – that’s what I do.

Here’s the noodle block – very straightforward and standard insofar as size.

The soup base powder sachet.

Truly, this is a powder – extremely light and fluffy.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, corn, leek, peas, carrot and BonCabe Level 10 chilli seasoning. The noodles were lackluster; crumbly. The flavor had a mushroom component, but didn’t really remind me of vegetables to speak of. 1.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 5023751102040>.

I don’t know why, but I’ve always found mushroom farming fascinating.

#1223: Sawadee Instant Noodles Prawn Oriental Flavour

Andy decided to pick this one to try today after I told him we had shrimp. I know, I know – shrimp aren’t prawns but he likes both and they’re both sea crawlies so he’s happy. Let’s check this one out.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be vegetarian friendly but check for yourself. To cook this one, put the noodles and seasoning in a bowl and add 250cc boiling water. Cover and after 4 minutes, you have your noodles.

Smells like prawns…

What can I say the boy likes noodles.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp I sauteed with a little garlic salt. The noodles are pretty decent; a little slight funk during the chew. The flavor is rather bland; fitting in the way of most of the British instants I’ve had, although this one is made in a country where bland would be the exception to the rule. Andy has said that these noodles get 5 point thirty stars. I differ. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 5023751102057.

#1195: Sawadee Instant Noodles Spicy Tomato Flavour

Here’s one that’s made in Malaysia but sold in the UK. Tomato! Usually a good bet. Some varieties taste like tomatoes au natural while others have a ketchup taste. Sawadee is Thai for hello. Let’s see how this one fares.

Has a salty scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed onions and beef and some tomato slices. The noodles are alright but unremarkable. The broth was definitely not spicy and the flavor was only kind of tomato like. 2.5 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 5023751102064.
