Mama brand, instant chan tom yum
Mama is the most famous brand in Thailand for good reason, the flavor of their instant noodles is fantastic. In fact, people are always finding ways to improve their basic Mama such as turning them into a seafood salad, or a "poor man's gourmet".
Here we have a new style of Mama, made using premium chantaboon rice stick noodles. Serving size is 1.94 oz dry, which is a bit larger than most Mama noodle packs. One bowl can fill you up, and the tom yum flavor is just as you might hope for--a lovely combination of sour & spicy.
Add the three separate spice packets, then add hot water, and let sit for 3 minutes.

Thai Prawn Soup with Lemongrass, 'Tom Yum Goong'
Tom Yum is both hot and sour, and it's one of the main signature dishes that defines Thai flavor. We've perfected this recipe and assure you it tastes great.
Typically a chef will use a pork or chicken stock then add the basic fresh staples to create the tom yum, as in our video: Railroad Chef Prepares Tom Yum. We like to start with a simple vegetable broth instead, so our recipe starts with the broth instructions then continues with how to make the tom yum.
It's important to use "prik pao" in your tom yum and we have several brands, with slightly varying tastes depending on your preference.
