#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!

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.

#1204: Nissin Cup Noodles Sabor A Gallina

Here’s another one of the new varities available in Colombia. Gallina means hen
and from what I was told by Hector C. from Panama (who lives in Costa Rica) that
it is kind of like the veal of chicken ; young hen. I researched a bit online and
found a few recipes for soups from Colombia mentioning Gallina. Wikipedia had
this to say of the Colombian variety of ‘Sancocho:’

Sancocho is a traditional food in Colombia made with many kinds of meat (most commonly
pollo (chicken), gallina (hen), pescado (fish), and cola (ox tail)) along with large
pieces of plátano (plantain), papa (potato), yuca (cassava) and/or other vegetables
such as tomato, scallion, cilantro, and mazorca (corn on the cob), depending on the
region. Some even top it off with fresh cilantro, onion and squeezed lime– a sort of
“pico de gallo”, minus the tomato; it is also usually served with a plate of white
rice on the side, which is usually dipped in with each spoonful of soup.

Let’s check it out!

jalapeno, plantain, red potatoes, cilantro, carrot, corn on the cob, lime wedges
and Ashanti hot sauce. The noodles are short and broad. The have a nice texture.

well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 7770662041033.
