Here’s one my friend Martin in Devon, England sent me a little while back. Though it was a good day for something fusion – British and Mexican? Sure, why not.

The noodle block.
I always find the packets from Britain are fascinating; they’re the only ones who use this little bit of real estate for something interesting. Nobody else really seems to do this.
The light powder has an odd scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, red bell pepper and Vidalia sweet onion I sauteed and added a little Mexcene seasoning to. Also added some Mexican blend cheese, green onions, sour cream and Ashanti Louisiana hot sauce. The noodles are very standard instant – decent texture and quantity. The flavor is interesting – has a hint of spiciness and then an extremely mild commercial Mexican flavor. It’s really interesting as it’s so different from the normal Mexican flavors in the US. Combining the flavor with the standard ‘noodles and sauce’ approach the Brits take is kind of odd but interesting too. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 5000175413648.
The commercials out of Britain are always really great when it comes to their noodles!
