Meet The Manufacturer: #2339: Nissin Cup Noodles Sopa Nissin Sabor Camaron, Habanero Y Limon - Mexico - The Ramen Rater

Here’s the second of the Nissin Mexico fiery hot Habanero line. Habanero peppers are definitely not to be messed with; I’ve made hot sauce a few times using them. The worst was when I hadn’t used rubber gloves and later in the day rubbed my eyes – burned really good even after multiple hand washings! Yeah – no fun. But, they deliver a great heat – let’s give this shrimp variety a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp and fire roasted corn. The noodles hydrated well and had a decent quantity. The broth has a little lemony hint before I added the habanero sauce which kind of overwhelmed it. In a way, it reminded me of a Mexican tom yum! 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662141229.

Check this one out – HABANERO! This is another one that comes with a sachet of hot sauce! Awesome! Mariscos means seafood – something I’ve always dreamed of doing is visiting the coastal areas of Mexico and trying the seafood dishes there! Let’s give this one a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added shrimp, cilantro and two types of fishcake. The noodles hydrated nicely and had a nice light chew to them. The broth was good before the hot sauce was added – a kind of sweet and tangy seafood hit to it. Once the included habanero hot sauce was in play though it definitely upped it a notch, giving some great heat. The veggies hydrated well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662141281.

Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Nissin RapiFideo Sabor A Chile Y Limon - Mexico - The Ramen Rater - fideos instantanea

The name of this one – RapiFideo – is a combination of two words. ‘Rapido,’ meaning ‘Quick’ and ‘Fideo’ which means ‘Noodle.’ I reviewed these a while back – let’s revisit them for this Meet The Manufacturer!

As with the Maxi Nissin Sopa, these look to be ‘cuchareable’ noodle (spoonable) – although much thinner this time. They’re pre-seasoned as well.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken with adobo seasoning, bell pepper, cilantro, mild cheddar cheese and Cholula Chili Garlic hot sauce. The noodles are round with a light-to-mid chew and short in nature. The broth has a kind of spicy taste with a hint of lemon. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 7503020651021.

#2074: Nissin Cup Noodles Sabor Pollo Habanero y Limon Sopa Instantanea

Here’s another one sent by Colin, a reader who recently visited Mexico – thanks! Okay so with all the flames on this one, the picture of the habanero and the packet, I’m getting this might be a little spicy. Let’s find out.

Detail of the side panel (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, add boiling water to fill line and cover for 3 minutes. Stir. Add sachet contents and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

Looks like the USA version except in Spanish. Reads ‘much more than a soup.’

The seasoning infused noodle block.

A couple of the vegetable bits from the cup.

Oh, this could get violent (click to enlarge)! El Yucateco is one of the spiciest hot sauces I’ve come in contact with, especially the habanero!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken and cilantro. The noodles are your standard North American fare – round in gauge and with a very light chew. The broth was a hint of spicy – not a barn burner here. The vegetables hydrated very nicely. The packet of El Yucateco – now that’s worth a fuss! Extremely spicy stuff – and not USA habanero spicy, Mexican habanero spicy which is very direct and to the point. It’s hot, has a bite and really ups this cup quite a bit. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662141236.

#2057: Nissin RapiFideo Sabor a Chile y Limon

Here’s another one sent to me by Colin from the eastern US – thanks again man! He went to Mexico and picked up a slew of different varieties to send my way. It still boggles my mind that with Mexico so close, it’s been so hard for me to get Mexican instant noodles. Let’s have a look!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, remove lid and add 275ml water. Microwave at 1000W for 3 minutes. Let sit for 1 additional minute. Stir and enjoy!

Detail of the lid (click to enlarge).

Here’s some of the uncooked noodles from the cup – they’re short and pre-seasoned.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added cilantro. The noodles are short and can be eaten with a spoon. These are like the Nissin Cucharealo tomato variant that was in the USA for a while. The broth is a thin with a nice tomato flavor with light spiciness and a smack of citrus. Not bad! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 7503020651021.

#2028: Maruchan Ramen Sopa Maruchan Sabor A Camaron, Limon Y Habanero

Here’s one I got from Paul S. – also got one from Colin. Thanks guys! What’s kind of crazy here is that this is the first Minstant noodle I’ve reviewed from Mexico (or at least made for the Mexican market). Instant noodles (fideos instantanea) are extremely popular in Mexico, as well as by the Latino population in the United States. Sopa means soup, sabor a camaron, limon y habanero means shrimp, lemon and habanero flavor. Anyways, let’s crack this sucker open!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains shrimp. To prepare, add noodle block to two cups boiling water and cook for three minutes. Add in contents of sachet. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet – this one’s known as lime chili shrimp where the US pack version is concerned.

The seasoning powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added large shrimp, coriander, Texas Pete hot sauce and sweet onion. The noodles hydrated nicely and have a standard domestic gauge. The broth has a nice bite to it and good shrimp flavor, although very thin. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789002960.

#783: Nissin Cup Noodles Salsa Picante Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

This one was taking a little punishment in the noodle hamper, so I decided it better see the light of day and become ingested.

Here’s the info from the outer packaging (click image to enlarge).

The lid.

Everything is in the cup – no packets or anything.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a little chicken lunch meat and a couple slices of Fresno pepper. Noodles were pretty standard ‘nothing to write home about,’ but they are rather historic fare. The broth has tones of cumin and chili powder. Not bad. The veggies were okay – marginal at best. All in all, not too shabby. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662031032 – get it here.

Here you go – enjoy this if you have to.

I still think Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s better, but this has some promise on the J-Pop scene.

#701: Meet The Manufacturer – Nissin Big Cup Noodles Lime Chili Shrimp

Here’s another one from Nissin! Lime Shrimp eh? Sounds decent – let’s try!

Side panels (click image to enlarge).

I have a hard time not eating this stuff – the lime reminds me of the lime flavor in the Flamin’ Hot Lime Cheetoes – which is strange since a recent review of Paldo Kko kko myun and Samyang Nagasaki Jjampong tasted like Jalapeno Cheese Cheetos – kinda funny! I like both of those flavors of Cheetos, by the way…

Finished (click image to enlarge). Thought this time it would be nice to present it a little better. The noodles are great – like broad egg noodles. The broth is really interesting; it kind of reminds me of a Tom Yum instant noodle with all the citrus flavor involved. I think a few dashes of Texas Pete and this would be even better! I liked it. Oh by the way – I ate it with a spoon! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars! UPC Barcode 070662030448 .

He’s going to throw some shrimp on the barbie!

What’s up with running with a slice of toast in your mouth? This is Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Truly bizarre stuff from Japan.

#403: Maruchan Instant Lunch Lime Flavor With Shrimp Ramen Noodles With Vegetables

So this looks kind of interesting. Hmmm… I should make a list of the Maruchan Instant Lunches I’ve ingested and then I can go to the store and get all the ones I have not and then bam bam bam… Cheap noodle week!

The standard instructions. People are asking me why I hold so firmly that microwaving this stuff in the foam cup is bad. Read the instructions! Usually that say not to microwave aren’t kidding.

Uncooked and awaiting some boiling water.

Click image to enlarge. So here’s what you get after it sits for a good ten minutes. The noodles really suck up that liquid! So its citrussy – lime to be sure. I dunno, it kind of had a little too much funky lime to it and made me unenthusiastic. 2.25 out of 5.0 stars. Find it here.

Wish they tossed one of these in there!!!

What a diss.

#183: Nissin Bowl Noodles Hot & Spicy Chicken Flavor

Some very domesticated Nissin Hot & Spicy! Haven’t tried this kind before – hoping it’s good!

So three packets – Vegetables, powdered soup base and their patented ‘soup booster’ packet (liquid).

So the soup booster goes in last, but here’s the cake of noodle, veggies and powder soup base. It microwaved for 3 minutes, thirty seconds and then sat for a minute.

Click image to enlarge. Then add the soup booster, give it a few stirs and voila! This is the finished product! So this has an interesting flavor. I’m not going to say its very chicken flavored. In fact I would go so far to say that this reminds me of Korean noodles that have a picture of a chili pepper on them. The noodles are pretty good – especially after being microwaved like that. The broth is weird; not a lot of it and it’s spicy but a really nondescript flavor other than ‘hot n spicy’ like the Flamin’ Hot that goes on Chee-Tos. The veggies were ample but I found that they liked to hide a lot. This lack of buoyancy for lack of a better word was kind of disappointing as the waterlogged bits fell short. Anyways, I’m giving the whole shbang 2.0 out of 5.0 stars. It was good because I couldn’t decide on anything else to eat, but it filled the void and nothing else. Get it here.
