#3211: MyKuali Penang Gaeng Som Noodle – Malaysia

#3211: MyKuali Penang Gaeng Som Noodle - Malaysia

Well look here  something brand new from MyKuali! I think the last new thing they introduced was their fried noodle – their mee goreng. This one though – I’ve never heard of this before. Let’s look at Wikipedia and see what we can find –

Kaeng som or gaeng som[1] (Thaiแกงส้มpronounced [kɛ̄ːŋ sôm]) or Thai sour curry[2] is a sour and spicy fish curry or soup with vegetables popular in central Thailand.[3] The curry is characteristic for its sour taste, which comes from tamarind (makham). The recipe uses palm sugar (Thaiน้ำตาลปี๊บnamtan pip) to sweeten the curry.

Following the popularization of the dish, currently the favored vegetables include cauliflower, white radishcabbagechinese cabbagecarrotlong beans and asparagus, as well as cha om omelet.

The versions using shrimp instead of fish are more popular; kaeng som with shrimp and cha-om omelet is now a standard dish in Thailand. Other types may include pineapple or seafood. The common point, however, is that coconut milk is not used in this sour curry.[7]

Wow this sounds very interesting – a sweet and sour kind of curry – I’m definitely interested. Let’s check out this new cup from MyKuali!

A thick paste.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, coriander, shrimp, tofu puff. Noodles are thin and have a nice crumble. Broth is kind of like a tom yum, but then again not like a tom yum. Doesn’t seem to be sweet either as mentioned in the Wikipedia entry I read – all that being said, I really like it! I didn’t know exactly what to expect, but this works quite well. Sour, spicy and tasty. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 9555655005807.

#3073: Trader Joe's Miso Ramen Soup - United States

A lot of people enjoy visiting Trader Joe’s and trying their products. Actually, there aren’t many products if any that I think are actually ‘their’ products – they get companies who make a good product to do a ‘private label,’ often the same product or some with a couple tweaks and then packaged with Trader Joe’s graphics. I believe this one to be actually a cup of Mike’s Mighty Good Craft Ramen. Anyways, let’s check this new cup out!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts , chashu and togarashi. The noodles are fascinating – kind of collapse instead of chew. They’re not mushy, but become so quickly in the mouth. The broth is definitely a red miso, and nori is rather prevalent. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 00604116.

I read an article about the dangers of instant noodle cups a long time ago which prompted me to write an article last year. Well, I recently saw another one so I thought it was time for a rebuttal. I emailed ConsumerAffairs.com and they were interested, and so without further adieu, here is my article! Thanks to Jim H.!
