Okay so here’s another one of the new recipe Cup Noodles from Nissin Foods USA – thanks again for sending ’em over! I did a kind of experiment a while back – one that ended pretty well. See, on Instagram I often see people enjoying their instant noodles alongside a beer as well as some form of Chee-Tos, whether they be regular, Flamin’ Hot or Flamin’ Hot Limon. What’s kind of funny about it is that it sort of makes sense. See, Chee-Tos kind of have the same effect on instant noodles as tempura. Weird but true – they’re crunchy but also work well in broth. It’s alright if you think I’m crazy, but I do find this somewhat poetic. Let’s check it out.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, cilantro, Chee-Tos, hard boiled egg,beef and crushed red pepper. The noodles are thin and hydrated nicely. They have a soft tooth and are what you’d expect. Also a decent quantity of them. The broth does taste like a thin beef broth. Vegetable bits hydrated well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Nissin Foods hasn’t changed the recipe for Cup Noodles since their unveiling in 1971.
