Here’s another one of the Nissin Mexico varieties I received recently – thanks again! Spicy? Let’s find out! It mentions that it’s got kick from habanero which is most definitely spicy.
Nissin Pasta U.F.O. Camaron Fuego Salsa Habanero Picante – Mexico
Detail of the bottom of the outer wraps (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, take out sachet and add in 2 cups boiling water. Cover for 5 minutes. Peel off drain spout cover and drain. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried egg, shrimp, spring onion, mild cheddar, red pepper flake, and Bufalo Clasica sauce. The noodles have a nice kind of whole wheat bump to them which was quite nice. Te flavor was a kind of lemony and spicy affair with notes of shrimp. Spiciness was there but balanced and mellow. Included vegetables were great. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662248140.
Here’s the first of a new range from Nissin Mexico that they sent recently – thanks again! This is a shrimp variety in the new spicy trio that should be pretty spicy! Let’s find out if the ‘fire shrimp’ means business!
Nissin Cup Noodles Camaron Fuego – Mexico
Detail of th cardboard outer package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add boiling water to fill line and cover for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried onion, colby jack cheese, soft egg, and cilantro. Noodles had the expected gauge and chew. Was surprised how well they went with this particular broth, however. Broth has a very tangy and crisp bite to it. Spicy level was pretty accessible for most. Kind of made me think of it being a Mexican styled version of tom yum. Shrimp were plentiful and of good quality. All in all very satisfied. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662247143.
