GV comments: This is a super-delicious soup--it was a surprise to me how good it was when I first tried it. The flavors truly blend into an entirely unique, fantastic taste. If you like Thai food, I think you will love this soup, and the noodles make it filling. The recipe calls for three packets of ramen noodles. I used just two my first time, and I now use only one, partly because there are only two of us, so there are always leftovers. If you don't serve the soup immediately, the noodles keep expanding--not a bad thing, but too much is too much.
