67. KOKA Tom Yum Flavor Instant Noodles

I am not a fan of Tom Yum flavor, but I’ve heard really good things about this one from KOKA!

Tom Yum is a type of hot and sour Thai soup,usually cooked with shrimp (prawn) and it has its origin in Thailand.

 Cooking instructions-

  1. Place noodles in 400ml of boiling water and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Turn off the heat, add seasoning and stir.
  3. Transfer to bowl and serve.

And beautiful looking seasoning powder and that chilli oil! Just look at the colors!

The seasoning powder is a mix of seafood extract (shrimp, fish, scallops), chilli powder, garlic, lemongrass, lime leaf flakes, paprika and chilli oil. This had the typical Tom Yum aroma of lime, lemongrass and seafood.

Bought this lovely ramen bowl from a road side shop for Rs 50 only!!

Sadly, I am still not a fan of Tom Yum flavor. This is one is certainly better than the ones I have had before because these don’t smell of fish and have a balance of all the flavours.

Also, I realized, I prefer dry noodles instead of soupy instant noodles because like you can see here, the noodles haven’t absorbed any flavor from the broth.

The broth is tangy with a hint of seafood flavor to it but the noodles inspite of being of great quality taste very bland.

I guess I am just going to steer away from Tom Yum flavored noods. Please share your thoughts and tips!
