Here’s one my friend Paul S. brought me back from a trip to Mexico – thanks again, bro! So instant noodles are very popular in Latin America. A lot of flavors that reflect the local tastes, this one being shrimp. Let’s check it out!

The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A light powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, spring onion and pepper jack cheese. The noodles hydrated well and have a soft tooth and very standard gauge. The broth has a shrimp taste – nothing spicy though. This seems to be identical to the version of Maruchan shrimp ramen sold here in the United States. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.
