Loose bits from the bowl.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried egg, shrimp, spring onion, mild cheddar, red pepper flake, and Bufalo Clasica sauce. The noodles have a nice kind of whole wheat bump to them which was quite nice. Te flavor was a kind of lemony and spicy affair with notes of shrimp. Spiciness was there but balanced and mellow. Included vegetables were great. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662248140.

#3329: Nissin Cup Noodles Dark Dragon Sabor Salsa Negra Y Limon - Mexico

I just have to say – what an ominous name for an instant noodle! I really dig that! When I saw this, I had to contact Nissin Mexico and see if I could get some. Well, they sent it! They also sent three U.F.O. Yakisoba varieties as well which you’ll see on upcoming reviews.

It’s been so crazy lately; apartment remodel, sinus infection, wife in the hospital (note this review is appearing about 100 days after I wrote it and fingers crossed shes getting out the day I’m writing it). It’s nice that things are at the cusp of really coming back to normal and things will be mellower. Let’s give this a try and check out the videos at the end – the regular Instant Noodle Recipe Time as well as the Spicy Noodle Mukbang! Let’s go!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken, cilantro, mozarella, fried onion, and Cholula Chili Garlic hot sauce. The noodles are really quite good in this one – round and a kind of whole grain-ness to them. The broth is like what I would envision a Mexican tom yum to be. Good heat and good crisp flavor from lemon. All in all quite impressed. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662247198.

#3099: Nissin Cup Noodles Alitas Hot - Mexico

Today, we have the second of the trifecta of Cup Noodles Intensos. a range of spicy varieties from Nissin Mexico. Not only are the spicy, but the three have different levels of spicy. I think this is the second hottest of the three. Alitas Hot – what does it mean? basically Hot Wings. Let’s give it a go!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried egg, low moisture mozzarella, grilled chicken, cilantro, green onion, and Cholula Chili Garlic hot sauce. The noodles worked very well here – and they seemed a little different. The broth was honestly some of the best I’ve had in a long time. It was smoky – like grilled chicken. The spicy level was rather tame and slightly acidic tones ala wing sauce tinged it as well. Very tasty. Corn was prevalent as well. Impressed! 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662247167.

Here’s the first of a new range from Nissin Mexico that they sent recently – thanks again! This is a shrimp variety in the new spicy trio that should be pretty spicy! Let’s find out if the ‘fire shrimp’ means business!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added fried onion, colby jack cheese, soft egg, and cilantro. Noodles had the expected gauge and chew. Was surprised how well they went with this particular broth, however. Broth has a very tangy and crisp bite to it. Spicy level was pretty accessible for most. Kind of made me think of it being a Mexican styled version of tom yum. Shrimp were plentiful and of good quality. All in all very satisfied. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.   UPC bar code 070662247143.

Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Have you ever tried Mexican Tacos flavored ramen? The toasty flavor of corn expresses the tortillas, and the mildly spicy and sour soup and the ingredients like minced beef and onion make it a bright and vibrant Mexican-Japanese style lunch.’

Okay – this is really different – let’s give it a whirl!

#2746: Ve Wong Fried Noodles With Mexican Chili Flavor

This was one I couldn’t leave Taiwan without. I saw this at RT Mart during my trip and passed it up since it was a 4 or 5 pack. But when I saw it again at Carrefour, I realized I’d better snag this one.

It’s been quite a morning – my scanner got screwed up which it does once every three months or so. When I went to reboot, Windows decided to do an update – which took almost two hours! Ugh. So much for the efficiency of waking up at 4am to get work done./  Well, let’s check out this Mexican Chili flavor instant noodle! Oh and by the way – I found out it’s not pronounced with a V sound but a W like ‘way wong.’

Lots of thick stuff!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added cilantro, fried onion, fried egg, Mexican cheese, jalapeno slices, and Cholula hot sauce. The noodles came out well enough – decent quantity and good tooth to them. Gauge was very standard. The flavor was definitely inspired by enchilada sauce, that’s for sure. Heat level was moderate and lot of cumin and chili taste to it. Surprises from Taiwan just keep coming. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4710008293231.

#2442: Nissin Cup Noodles Sopa Nissin Hot Sauce Con Camaron - Mexico - The Ramen Rater - shrimp instant noodles

Here’s one left over from the Meet The Manufacturer I did with Nissin Mexico a little while ago. These are very cool – they have little packets of hot sauce in them! Indeed, I think these should be available in the United States as well. I think they’d do really well! Indeed, who wouldn’t like the Cup Noodles here to come with a little packet of hot sauce? I know I would.

I think that in all honesty that Cup Noodles are a fascinating thing. They make them all over the world for so many different consumers. The ones in Thailand, the ones in Mexico and the ones in Japan are so completely different. They’re versatile and amazing to me. The Cup Noodle made it’s debut in 1971 and I couldn’t even guess globally how many different versions have come to market – in the hundreds if not thousands just from Nissin alone. Well, I think it’s time to review this one. Indeed, let’s crack it open!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added 31-40ct shrimp and coriander. The noodles hydrate decently and have a very light chew. Still surprises me how much noodle you end up with in a little cup.

The included vegetables did alright. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662242025.

Well folks, today is the last day of Meet The Manufacturer. It’s been a definite departure from the flavors I’m used to and it’s been a different way of thinking about noodles. I usually include mung bean sprouts in everything, but that really wasn’t an option. Indeed don’t know if my application of queso fresca was correct, but I had to try. However I tried to find other varieties of Mexican cheeses, however couldn’t find any melty ones – just crumbly. It was fun and something different for me, and I want to thank the folks at Nissin Mexico for the opportunity to try all of these! Let’s check out the chicken Cup Noodles to wrap things up.
