Here’s another one from Colin – you da man! He got these during a trip to Mexico earlier this year and sent them along. It’s funny; it still kind of boggles my mind how few instant noodles from Mexico I’ve had the chance to try until only recently. I mean, Mexico is pretty darn close. But then again it’s kind of the same way with Canada – I live about an hour and a half from the border and until we went up there a few years back for my birthday, I hadn’t tried much of anything from up there. Anyways, let’s check out this chicken flavored instant ramyun from South Korea for the Mexican marketplace.
Ottogi Ramyon Sabor Pollo – Mexico
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, add noodles and sachets to 550ml boiling water. Cook for 4-6 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A light colored, chicken scented powder.
A sachet of vegetables.
Some flake bits of vegetable.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion, baked chicken and chilli flake. The noodles were nice and thick – the instructions said 4-6 minutes cooking time and I went for the full 6 – and they got thick! The broth was reminiscent of canned condensed chicken noodle soup, which made for an interesting pairing with the noodles which after the 6 minutes seems like those noodles as well except really thick./ The vegetable bits hydrated well. Impressed! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 645175150299.
