#1709: Asia Gold Instant Noodles With Shrimp Flavouring

Here’s a neat one. During my trip to Thai President Foods’ Agent Meeting in Bangkok last month, I went to a seminar for a large group of European distributors. There were a couple guys who were there that I met from the Thai President Foods Hungary factory, and I was able to obtain samples of many of the products that are manufactured there, this being one of them. I noticed that on the label, an Austrian company is distributing this one. Anyways, this will be my first instant noodle review I’ve ever done of a product manufactured in Hungary! Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, put noodle block and contents of sachets into a bowl. Add 320ml boiling water and cover for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base powder sachet.

Has a slightly lemony scent.

A seasoned oil sachet.

A kind of tom yum scent on this one.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added coriander, shrimp and mung bean sprouts. The noodles hydrated quite nicely and were of a good quality. The broth was excellent – a little spiciness and really reminded me of tom yum, something I didn’t expect from the packaging. Quite nice! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9002859063244.

Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Sakura Noodle Chikara Brand Udon Shrimp Flavor

I got some really good sized shrimp the other day at the store thinking they’d go really well with this. I like shrimp – they’re tasty! The ones I’ve been getting are frozen and have a thin layer of ice all around them so they don’t stick together. Pretty brilliant – quite enjoyable. Anyways, today it’s shrimp. Let’s shrimp it up!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Comtains fish and shrimp. To  prepare, boil 1 3/4 cups of water and cook udon for 2 minutes, adding the contents of the soup base sachet in the last bit before the udon is done. Stir and enjoy!

The fresh noodle pouch.

The soup base sachet.

Smells a little salty, buttery and shrimpy!

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp and green onions. The noodles are nice and chewy as always; great quality. The broth is wonderful. It has a great shrimp flavor with a buttery comforting component to it that’s perfection. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 078128120115.

I don’t get these shrimp at the store, that’s for sure! This is a Mantis Shrimp – the whack it’s giving that clam is equal in force to a .22 calibre bullet!
