#2676: Maruchan Bowl Taste Of Asia Tom Yum Ramen Noodle Soup

When I saw this one I was extremely interested. I’ve had tom yum soup many times in Thailand and in Malaysia as well. I’ve reviewed tom yum instant noodle varieties from throughout Southeast Asia – tons of them. I’ve NEVER had one however from the United States. Not only that, this one is a microwavable tom yum. I must admit these are definitely uncharted waters. I’m really hoping this is good. With an open mind and palate, I delve into this bowl.

A lot of powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chilli oil, coriander, and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles were flat and on the thin side. This worked extremely well with the broth which has a very good character; it had the spiciness, lemongrass notes and a good sweetness which I love about tom yum. I liked how a little creamer was in there to give the broth a kind of heartiness. The bell pepper did well, the shrimp was there and the only complaint was that they were small and only a scant few. However, I found this to be absolutely fantastic stuff – very authentic and I found the noodle was light enough that it reminded me of rice noodles. This was a very pleasant surprise and I definitely recommend it to tom yum fans. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.   UPC bar code 041789003547.
