Re-Review: Nissin Top Ramen Cucharealo Home-Style Tomato Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

Thought I’d try this one again – it’s pretty sad – I have nothing new to review! Looking forward to some new varieties coming soon though hopefully! A couple from the UK have informed me that they’re sending a treasure trove of interesting varieties! Can’t wait! In the meantime, here’s the elusive Cucharealo – haven’t seen it for sale anywhere yet. Good stuff! Here’s the original review here.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a fried egg, cheese, Taxes Pete hot sauce, sweet onions, chicken lunch meat and Urashima Sesame & Salt furikake. The noodles are great – short and there’s tons of them. The broth has a really nice tomato taste with a hit of cumin. Great stuff! Gonna give it a 3.5 out of 5.0 stars yet again.

This place was amazing when I was a kid; you could put your hand on the window outside and it would make the train inside move! I miss the old guard of the enormous department store.

#849: Nissin Top Ramen Cucharealo Home-Style Tomato Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

Here’s another one of the new varieties that Nissin Foods USA sent me earlier this month to review. I got a comment from someone saying Cucharealo means ‘spoon it up.’ Makes sense – Nissin has a similar product called ‘Spoon it’ with flavors like chicken, beef and beet stew while the Cucharealo line is more hitting the Mexican flavors. The last one I tried was awesome – let’s give this one a try!

Short, thin noodles.

A single seasoning packet.

I gave it a taste – has a slightly tangy tomato taste.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added onion, red bell pepper, some over roasted chicken, Krazy Mixed Up Salt, a fried egg, Crystal hot sauce and some cheddar cheese. The noodles thin and short – definitely good for a spoon. The broth is pretty good – has a good tomato flavor. Not bad! 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662081013 .

#837: Nissin Top Ramen Cucharealo Home-Style Picante Chicken Flavor

Here’s one of the new one Nissin Foods USA sent recently. Cucharealo, eh? Couldn’t find out what that exactly means, but it looks like it’s something new and geared towards the Latino market. Interesting that it says Top Ramen on it too – brand recognition! Awesome – let’s give it a go.

Here are the sides and back – click to enlarge, as usual.

The noodles are in a bag – the box has three bags. These are short and thin.

One of the three seasoning packets.

Nice color – tasted a pinch – had some niceness to it, that’s for sure!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a couple fried eggs, some shredded cheese and some Krazy Mixed Up Salt. This is great stuff! The noodles are again short and this is really a soup – spoon was used on this one. The noodles are really nice – they have a good consistency and there’s a lot of them. The broth is excellent – has a strong chili powder and cumin taste and has a decent kick to it. This is really quite a departure from the norm. I delighted in the whole bowl! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars – excellent! UPC bar code 070662081037 .
