Before this Meet The Manufacturer, I really hadn’t known that Thai President Foods made so many different lines of instant noodles. I thought they made MAMA and that was about it – I was definitely wrong about that! Here’s another line for export to Europe, Bamee. This one has quite a few languages on it, more than the Thai Chef I reviewed a couple days ago which looked to be more for the German market. Anyways, beef! Beef sounds like a good one for today – it’s cloudy outside and a bit cooler. I’m wishing we could skip fall and go straight to winter – I really like snow and fireplaces and all of that comfy stuff. Summer is great, but it’s been a pretty hot one here. Beef soups are some of my favorites during winter, which is what made me go on that tangent there. Anyways, it’s still summer but time for Bamee beef noodle soup! Let’s go!
Before I start, also wanted to mention our good dog Otis. He’s not been feeling great lately – had to take him to a 24 hour emergency veterinarian a couple days ago. Hope you feel better soon, Oat!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block and sachet contents to a bowl. Add in 320ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
Has a nice beef scent.
The oil sachet.
Oil and shallots make a nice scent!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion, beef, carrots, peas and green nira. The noodles were a little more crumbly than I like and the gauge was thinner than expected.. The broth is nice and beefy and I detected a scent of sweet basil as it was cooking. although I didn’t taste it so much. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850987133008.
