#595: Thai Kitchen Spring Onion Instant Rice Noodle Soup

I’ve had the bowl version of this before, so I’m curious as to whether or not this is any different. We shall see!

A packet of powder and some oil.

The oil is a chili oil and that’s where the heat claim is coming from. I don’t really detect any heat here to be honest, but maybe I have a sturdier palate than some. Really though I can’t taste any heat.

This stuff was different than the bowl version in that the bowl version came out like a soup. This one came out more like a noodles and sauce kind of thing. The onion flavor was very nice – the noodles weren’t totally mushy but they were funky either which was cool. Also in the bowl version the noodles are in little inch and a half pieces; this was more like a nest of noodles. Good stuff – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. Get some here.
