Here’s a little about this variety of tom yam from Wikipedia –

tom yam kung (Thaiต้มยำกุ้ง) – the version of the dish most popular among tourists, is made with prawns as the main ingredient.[10] The dish originated during the Rattanakosin Kingdom.[11]

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and coriander. Noodles came out pretty well – a little stringy – kind of a weird term to use but I can’t think of one much better. The broth was a little saltier than expected but it was pretty good too. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8936046150800.
