The spicy fire trend reaches everywhere – here’s one from MAMA of Thailand now! It’s nice to see honestly; people really seem to like it hot and that’s something for years that wasn’t really offered. Something ‘hot and spicy’ was often anything but. Let’s see if this one packs a punch!
MAMA Oriental Kitchen Hot Korean Flavour – Thailand
Detail of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains meat – check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles and dry sachet 2 minutes in 400ml water. Drain. Add in wet sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A wet sachet.
A thick sauce/paste.
A dry garnish sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added micro arugala, black sesame seeds, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and soft egg. This is definitely a Thai take on the fire noodle. Noodles are thicker and chewier which works nicely. Flavor is strong and definitely has the same style of heat although a little different. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850987148200.
Here’s something new from Taiwan! I really like spicy and definitely like shallot. Let’s check it out!
Yonghai Dried Noodles With Chili & Shallot Sauce – Taiwan
Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil noodles for 3~5 minutes. Drain. Add sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The pack contains four of these individual serving packs.
A wet sachet of spicy oil.
The shallot component.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, spring onion, and sliced chashu. The noodle has a thicker vein down the center and a flanged outer line which is thinner giving a dual texture. Flavor was a spicy Sichuan peppercorn hit which was really nice although it was strong anwould have liked to have felt the the shallot element a little more. Nevertheless, it’s very good and I enjoyed this one a lot! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4713510260869.
