You might not be familiar with pozole – I have tried a pozole ramen in the past but unfortunately I still haven’t sampled the actual dish. Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about it – ‘Pozole (Spanish pronunciation: [po’sole]; from Nahuatl languages: pozolli, meaning cacahuazintle, a variety of corn or maize) is a traditional soup or stew from Mexican cuisine. It is made from hominy with meat (typically chicken , but possibly pork), and can be seasoned and garnished with shredded lettuce or cabbage, chilli peppers, onion, garlic, radishes, avocado, salsa or limes. Known in Mesoamerica since the pre-Columbian era, today the stew is common across Mexico and neighboring countries, and is served both as a day-to-day meal and as a festive dish.’
It sounds so good. I really have to try this sometime. For now, this is what I’ve got and it’s time to give it a try!

The noodle block.
A sachet of soup base powder.
A sachet or oil.
A sachet of vegetables.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, chicken, hot sauce, jalapeno, spring onion, crushed red pepper, and sesame seed. Noodle is of a thin gauge with a hint of brittleness and crumble on the tooth which I thought was just superbly chosen here. The broth is strong, bright, and savory with a little touch of heat. The vegetables from the bowl were great – a bunch of little bits in each bite. Really impressed! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 860009789513.
