#1979: Nissin Big Cup Noodle Ajillo

I could be wrong, but I believe this is the last one of the donations sent by Casey P. of Hong Kong – huge thanks to you! So this one looks interesting – it’s definitely much bigger than the standard Cup Noodle, that’s for sure. After a little research, it looks as though ajillo is a Mexican/Spanish dish which features shrimp, vegetables and sliced garlic. That definitely sounds good – let’s have a look.

Some of the seasoning and garnish from the inside of the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are the standard kind you get in Japanese Cup Noodle – thin and flat with a very soft chew. The broth was a kind of salty shrimp seafood flavor with a hint of garlic. The shrimp hydrated well and were complimented by cabbage and egg. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105232125.
