Hey look – Top Ramen got a facelift! They’ve been changing recipes all over their ranges – getting rid of artificial flavoring and MSG. They’ve also been changing names. This used to be picante beef. To be honest, I haven’t had the first variety in years and it’s nice to be able to have it again fresh. Let’s give it a look!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added cilantro, hard boiled egg and shichimi togarashi. The noodles are decent – very standard instant variety with a good gauge and soft chew.
