#808: Kim’s Bowl Vegetarian Tom Yum Flavor

Exactly one year ago as I type this, we were taking a break from Disneyland and doing a couple other things. Well, one thing we did was go to a little market and I got this instant noodle bowl.

Here’s a bit of info – these are hard to get info off of and as for scanning, impossible.

Yay! A new fork for the Included Forks page!

The noodle block – in plastic wrap.

Okay we have from left to right powder seasoning, some kind of oil and finally chili powder.

Here is the flavoring packets atop the noodle block.

Finished (click image to enlarge). This is much better than I expected! The noodles aren’t the best in the world, but they steeped well and are nice and fluffy. The broth is the highlight here – citrus, spicy heat and a good flavor. Not bad! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 610232022574 .

#422: Vifon Mì Lẩu Thái Thai Style Instant Noodle

This one’s been sitting in the bottom of the ramen box for quite a while now. Wondered how they would be – spicy? Salty? Nasty? Thready? Well, let’s open them and find out!

Well for one thing its full of packets – and a fork! Fork update! As far as the packets go, going clockwise from the top left we have (according to the package) a Citronella & Gallingale packet, soup base, vegetables and seasoned oil.

Nice colors atop the noodle block. The block is made of fried pre-seasoned noodles that could be eaten by themselves as almost all of the wheat flour based noodles I’ve had from Thailand are.

Click image to enlarge. Added a couple lightly fried eggs. Very good stuff! The noodles and broth reminded me a bit of Tom Yum flavor, just not as strong. The noodles were tasty and the veggies were too. The soup was not greasy at all – in fact it was very light – not what I expected at all. I was tasty yet delicate. The eggs atop lent a broken yolk heartiness to the broth and some bulk. A fine breakfast. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.
