The weather is getting colder here in Western Washington--we've had frost in the mornings a couple of times, and the rainy seasons have started. It feels like a nice day to have some warm spicy noodles! This particular variety has a place in my heart; it is one of the first imported noodles I tried when I made my first trip to an asian market a few years back. I found it in a large full-meal size instead of the typical 200-250 calorie portions from MAMA, and I am excited to have it again!
the other Shrimp Tom Yum that MAMA produces, and it probably just comes down to personal preference as to which one is better. The other one has a little bit cleaner or lighter feel to it, while this one seems more hearty and complex. Both are very good; personally I think I prefer this one, although I really think I would pick whichever one I happened to find in this 90g size, since I strongly preferred this portion size over the dinky standard size ones. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and I hope the store has more than just one of them in stock next time. :D
