While the flavour sachets don’t seem to state it, I feel like I can smell that sweet sweet aroma of lemongrass in this one.

I’m sure everyone who has ever eaten noodles has probably had these
ones, they’ve been around for years, they came in around the same time
as the Trident Hot and Spicy
Thai, but I find the creaminess to offset the pure burning hotness of those ones.

The noodles are a little floury, but at least they do pick up the flavour of the soup reasonably well.

The soup is opaque and beige coloured, with floating green vegetables things here and there, presumably bits of leek.

The flavour of the soup is way better than the texture of the noodles
in this case. The lemony sweetness, blends with the coconut creaminess,
and with a deep hot spiciness.

I find myself just wanting to tip the bowl back and drink it all
down.  It’s hard to resist.  And why resist temptation?

Rating: Noodles 2.5/5, soup 3.5/5. Overall 6/10.
