Meet The Manufacturer: #2338: Nissin Sopa Nissin Sabor A Pollo Sopa Instantanea Tipo Ramen - Mexico - The Ramen Rater - chicken noodle

Okay folks, what we have here is the baseline. Every company has a chicken flavored instant noodle, and this is Nissin Mexico’s. I should actually say not every company has a chicken flavor – but most do. Chicken is pretty open to interpretation and I don’t think (other than vegetarians and vegans) there are any cultural groups that don’t eat chicken. I could be wrong and if I am let me know. Let’s have something chicken flavored and dress it up Mexican style!

#1429: Nissin Sabor A Gallina Sopa Instantanea Con Fideos

This is the last of the new varieties available in the South American country of Colombia. What is Gallina? Well, it’s young hen. It was explained to me that Gallina is a little more oily. Andy will be enjoying this one today! Let’s have a look.

By the way – Andy’s got a new website he’s building all by himself. He’s 9 years old and taking all the pictures and writing all the text! Check it out! Yes, there are a lot of typos, but I think it will be neat to see the progression as he grows up and how his blogging style evolves.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but definitely check for yourself. To prepare, add noodles to 2 cups boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add seasoning sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!

The soup base sachet.

An interesting powder.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken sauteed with garlic salt and some cilantro from my wife Kit’s garden. The noodles are your very standard Nissin instant; a nice gauge and chew. The broth has a richer chicken flavor than the regular chicken flavor, with a slight bit more tension in the broth. I liked it. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 7770662018059.

Here’s a recipe to make a Colombian soup.

#1249: Nissin Cup Noodles Sabor A Pollo Sopa Con Fideos

Here’s another one that’s new in Colombia. How does it translate? Chicken flavor soup with noodles. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the detail of the lid (click image to enlarge).

Here are the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to contain egg and maybe chicken – check for yourself. To prepare, add boiling water up to line. Stir a little, then microwave for 3 minutes. Stir again and enjoy.

Inside the cup you’ll find seasoned noodles. They’re short, too. This is part of the whole ‘spoonable noodle’ line Nissin’s been going with lately.

 

This one’s what Andy picked today.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken with garlic salt, big ugly carrot and peas. The noodles are short and broad. Not extremely chewy. The broth is alright; has a chicken flavor but not very hearty. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 7770662041026.

#1233: Nissin Sabor A Pollo Sopa Instantanea Con Fideos

I thought today I’d do a couple reviews. My son had a craving for some noodles for lunch and I thought hmmmm… Which one? I’ve currently got a ton of varieties to pick from right now, but there are many he will definitely not like. One of his faves is Nissin Top Ramen Chicken flavor and so thought he might like this one. This one’s for sale in Colombia, made by Nissin here in the US, and is basically a repackaged version of the chicken Top Raen. Let’s see how it goes!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself. To prepare, add the noodle block to 2 cups of boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in the soup base sachet and stir.

The noodle block.

Look familiar? It should – it’s identical to the chicken Top Ramen soup base sachet.

A very light yellow powder with the scent of chicken.

Today we watched Indiana Jones #3 and #4. Andy was working on his Minecraft game too!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added chicken, bell pepper, sweet onion and lime. Andy wasn’t so sure about this one – actually, it wasn’t the soup and noodles so much but the lime. He’s never dealt with lime before and I told him not to eat it but to just let it float around. Well, being a standard 8 year old you can guess what he did. That was a puckerface if I’ve ever seen one! He took it in stride though and finished the rest of the bowl. This is the true baseline for me of the instant noodle. It can get better from here and worse from here. This is literally Chicken Top Ramen, just with different packaging. The noodles are nice and have a good texture. The soup is good too – nice chicken flavor. I’ve eaten this many times in many
different ways. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 7770662018035.

Here’s a very old Top Ramen commercial.

#1186: Nissin Sabor A Carne Sopa Instantánea Con Fideos

I read an article recently about Nissin starting to sell instant noodle in Colombia, so I shot an email to my friend Scott over at Nissin Foods USA and asked if I could maybe get some samples. He sent some! Thanks, man! This is pretty much identical to beef Top Ramen, but packaged for the Colombian market. Speaking of Top Ramen, Nissin is having a neat contest (here’s a link). Neat prizes and it’s easy. Anyways, let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). I desaturated the color a bit to make it easier to read. Contains beef powder.

Has a beef scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, jalapenos, carrots, and sweet onions. The noodles have a nice chew to them – there are plenty of them as well. The broth has a nice rich beef flavor. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 7770662018028.

#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.
