Why can’t we have Thai food in our 7-Eleven stores in the USA?

#820: Sunlee Tom Yum Shrimp Flavour Instant Rice Stick

Today is probably the hottest day we’re going to have in Western Washington this summer. Right now it’s 88 degrees! I thought a nice bowl of spicy noodles would go well with it. I mean, isn’t it hot in Thailand too?

Detail of the lid info (click image to enlarge).

An included fork!

Yay rice stick!

Seasoning powder.

A decent amount of it – has a very acidic taste.

Seasoned oil.

Looks much like a paste.

Andy was stoked – we got some kamaboko and it was really good. Check out his blog, Andy’s LEGO Stuff here!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added a little black pepper and some Huy Fong Sriracha chili sauce. The noodles are sturdier than a wheat flour noodle being that they’re rice stick. A little chewier but not too much so and still breakable by pursing one’s lips. The broth is quite good – a nice spicy and citrus flavor. Not too oily either. I should note also once the broth cooled and got kind of cold, it was also very refreshing in the hot weather – worth trying this way. Good stuff – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 761934016504 .

A little blurb about sunlee – they make rice too

Had no idea that there was ‘Bangkok Pop’ as well

#647: Sunlee Instant Noodle Tom Yum Shrimp Flavour

Cool – a Sunlee bowl. I’ve had a couple of these before – they were crab flavored and really quire good. Tom Yum soup is one of my favorites and hopefully since this is from Thailand, it should be pretty good.

Click image to enlarge. The ingredients list winds around the rim of the bowl. I like how it mentions that you put 360cc of water in – that’s a pretty precise measurement and usually they just say ‘to the line’ instead of an exact number.

Seasoned oil and seasoning powder. This is another one whose packets are just the the Yum Yum ones.

Here’s the block with seasonings on top – awaiting the 360cc os boiling H2O.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a single fried egg with a dash of Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning on top. The noodles weren’t bad – a little bit on the slightly non-pliable side. The broth was great – very sippagle and had a good spiciness and citrus taste, as well as a hint of shrimp. Tasty little bowl – 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 761934016320 . Get it here.

Sunlee makes rice too!

Herman Cain’s campaign chief Mark Block remixed. I think everybody’s forgotten about both of them for the most part already.

#396: Vina Acecook Best Cook Hot & Spicy Tom Yum Shrimp Flavour Instant Noodles

So far I’ve been so pleased with the Vina Acecook products. Everything’s been so nice about them. So let’s try a new one – a bowl noodle this time.

Everything individually wrapped – kind of nice! A noodle block on the left then top left clockwise we have paste soup, powdered soup base, veggies and a little naruto peeking and seasoned oil . Four seasoning packets – niceness! Oh – I failed to take a pic but there’s also an included fork which will be in the update of the included forks which I’ll do in a bit.

Clockwise from top left: seasoned oil, veggies, soup paste and powdered soup base.

Click image to enlarge. Threw in a couple fried eggs, a little garlic salt, a little Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning and a couple drops of Crystal Louisiana Hot Sauce.The noodles stay firm and absorb a good amount of the flavor. The veggies came up nicely and were abundant. The broth is very tasty – a lot of citrus, shrimp flavor and warmth. The other things I threw in added to it and made it all very nice. I loved it – 4.25 out of 5.0 stars – excellent meal!
