Verdict: Mild Ginger slightly buttery taste with just a hint of a Thai sweetness undertone, this soup looks ugly, but trust me, it taste much better than it looks!

The sodium content is a little too high.

Noodles: Firm (these were microwaved, boiling will make them more tender)

Make it better by:  Add a  little sliced chili pepper, scallion and/or cilantro for a special kick!

Fun fact: Thai Ginger isnt the “ginger” most westerners know. Its actually a different ingredient somewhat related to the ginger plant, but has a different taste. The real name for it is called “galangal” (which can be found in the ingredient list).
