Nissin Tom Yum Shrimp Sabb Flavor Cup Noodles (Thailand)
The noodles are the classic wheat flour instant noodles which had the quality that you would expect from Nissin. The broth is spicy tom yum broth which had a light hint of sweet dried cuttlefish. The flavor was further complemented by the generous helping of dried egg and shrimp garnish.
Overall the Nissin Tom Yum Shrimp Sabb Flavor Cup Noodles is quite a satisfying one. We give it a final score of 3 chilis and 4 stars.
The wheat flour noodles were frankly quite poor. While the texture was ok, the flavor was an off-putting stale taste. The broth itself was frankly quite poor. It was a basic spicy broth (2.5 chilis) with a dash of sour flavor. We would realistically have given this a score of zero stars if not for the inclusion of the dried shrimp garnish. They were very juicy and flavorful after rehydrating. We think they are the nicest dried shrimp garnish we have tasted thus far.
Overall, we give the PAMA Mee Shrimp Tom Yum Flavor is score of 1 star.
Kaset Brand Instant Bean Vermicelli Shrimp Tom Yum (Thailand)
The mung bean vermicelli noodles were a welcome change from your run-of-the-mill wheat flour ones. They took a bit longer than the recommended 2 minutes to cook and absorbed a lot of water as they rehydrated. However, despite the expected sogginess of a vermicelli, they retained a good level of chewiness.
The broth was a typical spicy and sour tom yum that delivered a good kick of spiciness, scoring 3.5 chilis. Those who enjoy lemon grass will love this one as it is the dominant flavor in the tom yum recipe. Though this cup of noodles is marketed as a “Shrimp Tom Yum”, we could not really taste any shrimp flavor in the broth. The meager portion dried shrimp in the garnish pack didn’t help either.
Overall we give the Kaset Brand Instant Bean Vermicelli Shrimp Tom Yum a score of 3 stars. We feel that it has great potential and can easily gain 1 to 1.5 stars with a more generous garnish pack and a slightly tweaked tom yum recipe that features a noticeable shrimp flavor.
Nissin Tom Yum Shrimp Creamy Soup Flavor Chilli Noodles (Thailand)
The noodles are regular wheat flour noodles that have the same quality bite and flavor that you would expect from Nissin. The broth is a spicy and creamy tom yum broth. We can taste the characteristic lemon grass flavor that is ever-present in any tom yum broth. Interestingly, there is also a light hint of peanut which actually complemented the dish nicely. Besides the dried vegetables, the garnish pack also contained some dehydrated egg which went down very well with the rest of the noodles and soup.
Overall we give the Nissin Tom Yum Shrimp Creamy Soup Flavor Chilli Noodles a rating of 3.5 chilis and 3.5 stars.
Had to try their durian parfait. There were 2 scoops of the durian ice cream in the dish and some pieces of durian. More durian ice cream would be better hehe The Tom Yum Shrimp was delicious. The durian spring rolls were unique but needed more durian otherwise you would've missed it. The Black sesame dessert wasn't overly sweet. It was just right. #durianparfait#durianspringrolls#durian#snacktime#blacksesamedessert#tomyumshrimp
