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

#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.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp that I put in egg and then in panko and sauteed, red, yellow and orange bell pepper and sweet onions. The noodles are superb – lot of ’em and they have a very ‘comfort food’ consistency. The broth is nice too – has a good deep spiciness much like a Mexican food flavor with a nice shrimp taste to it. The extra veggies and shrimp that came with it are nice too – hydrated well and of good quality. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789003035.

Here’s one of the new Maruchan Bowls that they recently sent samples of. The only Maruchan bowls I’ve had before were only made in Japan – like the Midori No Tanuki and the Akai Kitsune Udon, both of which are in the Top Ten Instant Noodle Bowls list. Today I’m having the chicken variety.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added broccoli, sweet onion, green bell pepper and oven baked chicken with italian seasoning and Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning. The noodles are great – thin and flat with that ‘comfort food’ niceness that instant noodles for the US market sometimes have. The broth is great – has a very nice chicken flavor that I thoroughly enjoyed. The veggies? More than expected and hydrated well. It certainly seemed like a lot of noodles in this one – quite filling! This is a great noodle bowl – 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 041789003011 – get it here.
