Found this up in Canada at Osaka Supermarket at Yaohan Centre in Richmond, BC. I must admit that the first time I tried one of Sau Tao’s Tom Yum Kung varieties I was kind of surprised. Tom Yum from Hong Kong? That’s a way for Thailand! But one of my favorites lately has been their straight noodle variety. This one’s a rice vermicelli – sounds interesting. Let’s check it out!
Sau Tao Tom Yum Kung Flavour Rice Vermicelli – Hong Kong
The distributor/export sticker (click to enlarge).
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp and fish. To prepare, add one pouch of rice vermicelli to 500ml boiling water. Cook for 2 minutes, loosening noodles. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
One of the 3 servings of noodles.
A dry sachet.
A coarse powder.
A wet sachet.
A thick paste.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, Dodo shrimp and fish ball, coriander and fried garlic. The noodle wasn’t what I expected. They have the same gauge as yellow noodle and a kind of odd chew to them. Not entirely to my liking. The broth however is very tasty – bright and flavorful with the notes of shrimp, lemongrass and a respectable spiciness. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 087303866885.
