This is the last of the new varieties available in the South American country of Colombia. What is Gallina? Well, it’s young hen. It was explained to me that Gallina is a little more oily. Andy will be enjoying this one today! Let’s have a look.
By the way – Andy’s got a new website he’s building all by himself. He’s 9 years old and taking all the pictures and writing all the text! Check it out! Yes, there are a lot of typos, but I think it will be neat to see the progression as he grows up and how his blogging style evolves.
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but definitely check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 2 cups boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add seasoning sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
An interesting powder.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken sauteed with garlic salt and some cilantro from my wife Kit’s garden. The noodles are your very standard Nissin instant; a nice gauge and chew. The broth has a richer chicken flavor than the regular chicken flavor, with a slight bit more tension in the broth. I liked it. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 7770662018059.
