#1492: Wai Wai Quick Zabb Tom Yum Shrimp Flavour Instant Noodles

Usually if I’m really trying to get my hands on some noodles to review, I’m going to find a way. There have been a couple though which have eluded me for a while. This is one of them – Wai Wai’s Quick Zabb. There are four of these varieties, all with a different main color and different character. They’re kind of like Powerpuff Girls, but a little meaner looking. I’m stoked – got all four at a store only 5 minutes away yesterday! Sometimes walking down that noodle aisle you’ve been down a million times before with no luck pays off. Let’s check it out!

The noodle block.

A dual sachet: dry seasoning on the left and seasoned oil on the right.

Has a tom yum kind of scent.

Has a light garlic scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added shrimp, fishball, sliced green onion, bell pepper, sweet onion and lime. The noodles are just right for tom yum with a nice texture and crumble. The broth is a slap in the face of strong spiciness and has a very nice citrus and shrimp flavor as well. The spiciness is almost ‘crisp,’ if that makes sense. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8850100101075.


Here it is for sale on Amazon.
