My sweetie told me I should have a "Japanese-style" breakfast this morning, which is her way of saying she's going to sleep in and I can eat noodle soup for breakfast. I picked this Tom Yum Seafood bowl from Fashion Food, since the portion size is fairly small and I won't be ruining our 'real' breakfast later. I've had this one in the cabinet for a while and I've been avoiding it for some reason; maybe the "Fashion Food" name gives me the feeling that the presentation took precedence over quality or something. Anyway, this seems like the perfect time, so let's open it up and see what's in there!
MAMA Shrimp Tom Yum, with the addition of the seafood bits. One thing that might be a positive about not having the chili powder separately is that the broth does seem a little less grainy once we get down to the bottom of the bowl.
I did enjoy this one, although I can't help thinking the fancy bowl and fork were wasted on me. Since the purchase price of these is roughly triple that of the MAMA packet-style product, I think that one would get the nod from me over this one. :|
