Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, and squid. The noodles hydrated very well and had a soft but enjoyable chew to them. The broth was a nice one two of nice tom yum flavor – the lemongrass and chilli hit I like. The sheer amount of little bits and pieces of garnish in this one were impressive – lots of little bits of egg and seafood. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888279102098.
This was sent to me by Ippin, a purveyor of wonderful Japanese items! Thank you again! This is one from Singapore. Tom yum is a very popular flavor in Southeast Asia – here’s a little about tom yum from wikipedia:
Commercial tom yum paste is made by crushing all the herb ingredients and stir frying in oil. Seasoning and other preservative ingredients are then added. The paste is bottled or packaged and sold around the world. Tom yum flavored with the paste may have different characteristics from that made with fresh herb ingredients. The soup often includes meats such as chicken, beef, pork, or shrimp.
So let’s dig into this one from Singapore!
