#3262: Aji-no-men Sabor Carne Sopa Instantanea Con Fideos - Peru

A huge thanks to MLats for shooting this over! Love it when readers come through with varieties I’ve never gotten the chance to try and really want to.

So – a little background. Aji-no-men is produced by a company called Aji-no-moto. Here’s a little about the Japanese company from Wikipedia –

Ajinomoto Co., Inc. (味の素株式会社 Ajinomoto Kabushiki gaisha) is a Japanese food and biotechnology corporation which produces seasoningscooking oilsfrozen foodsbeverage,  sweetenersamino acids, and pharmaceuticals.

AJI-NO-MOTO (味の素, “essence of taste”) is the trade name for the company’s original monosodium glutamate (MSG) product.[2]

The origin of Ajinomoto Co., Inc. was a newly organized business unit in 1908 in Suzuki Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., founded in May 1907 by Saburosuke Suzuki II. This unit was organized at a request of Dr. Kikunae Ikeda (1864–1936), a Professor at Tokyo Imperial University, who invented a method for producing monosodium glutamate seasoning. He wanted to commercialize his discovery and by working with Sabururosuke Suzuki II to make this a reality in 1909. Under the general control of Saburosuke, Chuji Suzuki, a younger brother of Saburosuke, was in charge of the production and Saburo Suzuki, a son of Saburosuke, handled sales and marketing.[37] Dr. Ikeda was interested in the taste of kelp juice and when analyzing samples, he discovered the causative substance of its unique flavour, was monosodium glutamate (MSG). He named this specific taste “umami.”. Umami is now accepted around the world as one of the essential basic tastes, but it was not yet known at the time of discovery.[38] Ikeda further invented a method of manufacturing MSG, and acquired patents in Japan in 1908, France in 1909, the UK in 1910, and in the United States in 1912.[39] After obtaining a Japanese patent, Ikeda was inspired by an article written by a Japanese doctor, Hide Miyake, claiming that the flavour of umami facilitated digestion. Subsequently, in order to use umami to improve the health of the Japanese at that time, he asked Saburosuke Suzuki II to further commercialize it for general consumption.[40][41] The product name “AJI-NO-MOTO,” which continues to be used today, represents a seasoning that is made from vegetable proteins such as wheat and soybean. In November 1908, the company registered its trademark for ““AJI-NO-MOTO””. In parallel, in October 1908, prior to the start of manufacturing and in consideration of safety issues, the company conducted an evaluation test of monosodium glutamate at the Tokyo Sanitation Laboratory of the Ministry of the Interior. Test results and evaluations showed that the product was harmless and suitable for human consumption. As a result, full-scale production began in December 1908 and products were mass-produced by March the following year. After presenting the product at an exhibition at the first new product exhibition event held in Ueno, Tokyo, in April 1909,[41] sales for general consumers began on May 20th 1909.[42] This is the founding anniversary of the business.[43]

So yeah – this is a very old Japanese company and they have lots of different product ranges. I’ve always wanted to try their instants, and here’s some from their Peruvian line! Let’s give it a try!

Time for some beef! I’ve noticed that kind of like in the US, there are only a scant few pack noodle varieties and most varieties are in cups. Cups are great since they’re portable, have their own container to eat out of, and are easily disposed of. Let’s check out this beef variety.

#1292: Nissin Cup Noodles Sabor A Carne Sopa Con Fideos

Hey look! This is the last of the Nissin varieties made for Colombia. They’re made here in California by Nissin Foods USA, but only for sale in Colombia. This is identical to the beef flavor Cup Noodles we have available here. I reviewed that one way back – #334 in March of 2011 – seems like forever ago. Let’s see what I think about this one nowadays. Let’s check it out!

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Not sure if it contains meat or not, so have a look for yourself. To prepare, add room temp water to line, stir, and microwave for 3 minutes. Stir again and it’s done!

Here’s what’s under the hood: pre-seasoned noodles. What’s rad about these? They’re excellent straight out of the container like a snack. Bet they’d be good on a salad.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added garlic, jalapenos, lime, thin sliced beef, carrot and leeks. The noodles are short and broad; reminiscent of egg noodles. They’ve got that kind of comfort food texture I like. I have found that a stir after the minute after cooking and then another minute of sitting makes them a little nicer. The broth was a typical beef flavor. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 7770662041019.

Score – a Colombian Cup Noodles commercial!

#305: Lucky Me! Supreme Special Beef Carne de Vaca Instant Mami Noodles With Free Crackers

So I’ve reviewed another Supreme with the free crackers before. This time it’s special beef flavor! The tops are all the same on this line it appears…

So here’s the ‘front’ I suppose. I found it interesting that they put a sticker over something so I peeled it off. It looks like they covered up the Filipino text with Spanish for sale in the US; which seems strange since there are a lot of folks from the Philippines here!

Drove my Chevy to the levee and then ate a bowl noodle… Very interesting side image…

So they seem hell bent on letting you know ‘hey, these crackers are free – gratis – and you will like them!’ Powder and some kind of seasoned oil on the right and a veggie pack on the left.

Waiting for a bath…

Click image to enlarge. Added two eggs with a little seasoning on them. So the noodles aren’t bad – not really firm. The broth is interesting – a beefy flavor. I’m still unsure of the vegetable here but they’re fun and the crackers add a nice touch. A good bowl of noodles – 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.
