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!

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.
