Hi Essence of Thailand people,

I am so glad I found you. Mama Tom Yum noodles are the best instant noodles I know, and I consider myself something of a connoisseur. I haven't been able to find them anywhere until I came across your website. Your prices are great and delivery was quick and easy. I can't thank you enough.

Please keep doing what you're doing. You are invaluable.

Many thanks
Corinne

Thank you for the easy transaction. I bought the produce as a gift for my dad who lived in S E Asia for 10 years and misses the food. He will be very pleased I have managed to find banana sauce for him.

There's soy sauce and there's Kikkoman

Kikkoman costs a little more but is just better then the others. I've tried so many others but always come back to Kikkoman.

Easy peasy Thai Rice
Saturday, 4 May 2019  |  David

Easy peasy to prepare.
Filling packet to line with boiling water, mixing sauce/seasoning, give it a good mix and then seal packet for 7 minutes.
The rice is moist and soft and sits well on the tongue combined somewhat delectably with rest of the ingredients.
For a hungry horse the packet provides a fulling accompaniment with vegetables, meat or fish.
Or a pleasant addition as part of a meal for two.
