Here’s a new one I found a couple days back locally! I’m really excited – going to go visit Thai President Foods’ and President Rice Products’ in May! I’ll have more info on the trip soon! This product is made from rice vermicelli. It sounds very interesting – the wheat noodle version made the top ten list in the past – let’s check this rice vermicelli version out!
Here’s the import/distributor’s sticker (click image to enlarge).

The rice noodle block.
The powder seasoning.
Has a great tom yum scent.
Can smell the lemongrass!
The solid ingredients sachet.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, coriander, mung bean sprouts, lime and Huy Fong Sriracha chilli sauce. The rice vermicelli is very thin and light. As always, I like it best cut with a pair of kitchen scissors. Good stuff! The broth has that same shrimp creamy tom yum flavor as the wheat version – good heat, lemongrass and shrimp taste. The added veg and shrimp hydrated really well and had great texture. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8851876000050.
Whoa – MAMA Sailor Moon! Maybe I’ll be able to pick some of these up in Thailand!
