Tom Yum

Tom Yum


Tom Yum originated from Thailand. Thailand is located slightly up north from Malaysia and we have shared this recipe for the longest time as it has now become one of our daily meal option besides our other traditional menus. As Malaysian, we have these dishes served along with rice and other dishes during lunch and dinner.


Pretty easy to cook. It takes between 15 – 30 minutes before it is ready to served.

This time I am preparing it with bihun (rice noodles), so we don’t to serve it with rice.

It is your choice to have it only tom yum or add rice noodles according to your preference and level of hunger 😉
