Spaghetti Tom Yam Soup

Albeit the freezing-shivering to my bones winter, I must say I am enjoying every moment of my holiday. With another few days before returning to the mundane daily chores, I made this dish a few day prior to leaving. (read more at Fried Pompret With Ginger And Soy Sauce and Fried Black Pompret), Okay, as time is running out,  just a short intro to this spaghetti (Tom Yam Fried Mee Hoon, Tom Yam Fried Rice,  tom yam soup (Seafood Tom Yam Soup,Tom Yum Goong & Tom Yam Seafood Soup & Tom Yam Steamed Fish) - ready made tom yam paste and elevated with the "must-add" ingredients for the authentic and truly lovable Thai flavours (Instant Tom Yam Noodle & Tom Yum Soup Vegetarian). Alternatively, you may consider making the paste from a stretch. For that, please read at Nasi Goreng Tom Yam recipe.
