#937: MAMA Shrimp Flavour (TOM YUM) Oriental Style Instant Noodles

NOTE – This was originally catalogued as a ‘Re-Review’ but actually hadn’t reviewed it before. Therefore, I am correcting this and making it the next successive review, which is #937.

Here’s something I picked up at Walmart that asked for a re-review. As I’m sure many of you have read, the stock of new varieties of noodles that I have to review has dwindled. I’m hoping that will change soon, but until them, I’m forced to re-review some older ones. This should be pretty good – a spicy shrimp Tom Yum variety from Thailand.

The noodle block. This is pre-seasoned and pretty good right out of the bag.

Here’s a dual packet – chili powder on the left and seasoning powder on the right.

Here we have the chili powder atop the seasoning powder.

Here’s a packet of paste.

Not a huge amount but I’m sure it is an interesting addition…

Finished (click here to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg with Krazy Mixed Up Salt, sweet onion, kamaboko and a little Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles are this and kind of crumbly. The broth has a strong citrus flavor and heat – nice Tom Yum tastes to it. I would recommend it – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 052066000036. Get it here.


  1. I too find this one to be pretty pleasant without the “me too” flavor of a tom yum flavored ramen. it’s got a clean, complex flavor in the broth. I haven’t even tried the noodles yet, i write this as I’m eating it. Mama noodles all have a similar fragrance to me that is a clue to how good they taste as a dry snack too. The broth has a slight tomato flavor…i like it. 4 of 5 for me…

  2. I am a pescatarian. So my ramen choices are limited, but this is my favorite so far. The broth is a lot more complex than the salty yet bland broth I’ve come to expect in many seafood/veggie ramens. I topped mine off with fresh green onion and cilantro… and a cheeky squeeze of lime. I think next time a little sriracha will bump up the heat to perfection! 4 out of 5 for me.
