I picked up something new at the convenience store the other day!
It looks pretty tasty! Let's give it a try!
Mama is the most popular brand of Thai instant noodles. If you've been to Thailand, you might also know that spaghetti carbonara is weirdly popular here too. It only makes sense that eventually someone would come around to combining the two!
Apparently this is a limited edition seasonal menu. For... winter, I guess? Is spaghetti carbonara a winter food? Maybe...
So, does it taste like spaghetti carbonara? Well... not really. But it is cheesy and creamy and different from the usual selection of seafood/tom yum/spicy pork instant noodles usually available in Thailand. It's not bad at all, actually kind of good, if only for a change. I would definitely have it again.
Mama Instant Cup Noodles Carbonara Cheese Flavor (Seasonal Menu) is available for a limited time at select 7-11 convenience stores in Thailand for 15 baht.
Try one today and let us know what you think!
