The weight on this sachet compressed it.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added scallion, sesame seeds, and shichimi togarashi. The noodles hydrated nicely and sucked up much of the liquid. The broth has a kind of chili taste to it – almost like chili cheese but not quite. It’s quite good – not what I expected from a vegetable flavor noodle. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 7891079000397.

#3047: Quero Galinha Caipira Refogada - Brazil

Here’s one that was sent by a Brazilian reader named Daniel – thank you again! I couldn’t figure out a whole lot about this one – I do know that galinha is young hen. Usually tends to be on the oilier side. So let’s give it a try!

#3020: Panco Lamen HOT Sabor Galinha A Moda Baiana - Brazil

Here’s one sent by Daniel from Brazil – thanks again! A new brand I’ve never tried – Panco! So Galinha I have been told is kind of like a ‘young hen’ flavor. I’ve also been told it’s a little oilier. Anyways, spicy chicken is what I’m guessing here – let’s see what it’s all about!

A light powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added cilantro, fried onion, spring onion, baked chicken with Cholula, nanami togarashi and Salt for Life. The noodles come out a little fluffy and very comfort foody. The broth isn’t salty, but does have a definite roast chicken flavor to it and it’s pretty decent – but the hot – I’m getting about as much heat as if you looked at yourself in a mirror holding a habanero and expected that would make you experience spicy flavor. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 7891203057723.

Watch me cook – actually I had some technical difficulties. From the looks of it I never turned the video back on, although there’s a file that was corrupted so I’m guessing something unhappy happened…
