The other day we headed south to check out Ikea. I’d never been there before – wow pretty crazy place! I even tried the meatballs – not bad. Nearby Ikea is Seafood City, a big grocery store that sells mostly Filipino stuff. I have only been there once before and found lots of great instant noodles I’d not reviewed before. Sadly, I only found one – and this is it. Actually, my wife Kit found it! Thanks, Kit! I like the name; it looks like Panama and my spellcheck is insisting is should be spelled Panama, but it’s Pamana. One thing to note – so by the time this is posted, we”ll have moved. I’m quite a few reviews ahead which is nice. No time today to do the pics of sachet contents (actually I packed my little bowls already). Let’s see what’s inside!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, empty everything into the cup. Add boiling water to the fill line and stir. Let steep for 5 minutes, stir and enjoy!
A sachet full of macaroni.
The soup base sachet.
Interesting sachet of bits and pieces.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken, sweet onion, green onion, bell pepper, carrot and Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Pepper. The macaroni noodles came out perfectly – they were all cooked and have a decent size and texture. The broth is a little on the bland side, but has a nice creamy chicken flavor to it with some nice little bits going on. Not bad! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 795981230095.
Here’s a recipe for Chicken Sopas from ABS/CBN, a big Filipino TV network.
