Here’s another one sent by Colin, a reader from back east – thank you! He went to Mexico recently and sent me a ton of varieties that he found there. You’d think with Mexico being next door I’d be able to find more varieties, but actually it’s been really hard. This one’s made in South Korea for the Mexican market. Instant noodle are hugely popular in Mexico, and with spicy flavors coming out of South Korea, it’s a pretty good fit. Let’s have a look!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add package contents to 550ml boiling water and cook for 4-6 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A spicy scented powder.
The vegetables sachet.
Looks like spring onion and some peppers amongst the mixture.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, ito togarashi, carved squid and shrimp. The noodles are nice and thick ramyun noodles – good chew and mouthfeel. The broth is a spicy seafood affair, augmented very nicely with the included vegetables. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 645175155140.
A recipe which sounds fascinating…
